Week 3 college football scores, highlights from Saturday's games
Now that the college football season is in full swing, we have a chance to reflect on the plethora of highlights the first two weeks brought. It's true that Week 3 is lacking in top 25 matchups, but that just means everyone should be on high alert for a big upset or two.
Saturday's schedule is rife with possibilities, beginning at noon with a pair of top 10 programs: No. 7 Michigan hosts Air Force and No. 9 Oklahoma State at Pittsburgh. From there, No. 23 Tennessee visits No. 24 Florida in Gainsville at 3:30 p.m. ET with No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Oklahoma, No. 5 Penn State and No. 8 Ohio State also in action throughout the afternoon.
It all leads to the big one: No. 3 Clemson vs. No. 14 Louisville in primetime (8 p.m. ET, ABC). The rematch of the 2006 Rose Bowl between No. 4 USC and Texas starts at 8:30 p.m. ET on Fox. Hang out here at Sporting News for live scoring updates and highlights as Saturday's biggest games unfold.
