Week 3 of college football season was another packed Saturday of action. From the lunchtime window to the late night games that stretched into the early hours of Sunday morning, there were many fascinating matchups. Some brought clarity to the college football landscape while others brought up more questions than answers. A total of 23 squads who were placed in the AP Top 25 were in action all day.
Early highlights included the renewal of an old Big 12 rivalry between No. 3 Oklahoma and Nebraska, which marked another moment of survival and advancement for the Sooners. No. 8 Cincinnati also finds itself in a fight on the street in Indiana, while two ACC teams – No. 15 Virginia Tech and No. 24 MIami – lost in non-conference fights to Michigan State and West Virginia, respectively. The afternoon slate was also taken from No. 1 Alabama’s thriller highlighted at # 11 Florida on CBS.
Ultimately, the prime-time slot drew a crowd when No. 10 Penn State ousted No. 22 Auburn in a White Out game fans had been waiting for. To round off the night, the number 23 BYU took another formidable win over a Pac-12 opponent, ousting Arizona State’s number 19, while UCLA’s number 13 fell after midnight in a classic shootout against the state of Fresno.
