Could Week 3 of college football be even better than Week 1? With the top three teams in the nation playing true road games against ranked opponents, the answer is a big old yes.

Can Lamar Jackson carry Louisville to a program-defining win over division rival Florida State? Can the youth of Ohio State handle one of the most hostile environments in the country in Norman, Oklahoma? Will Ole Miss do the unthinkable and beat mighty Nick Saban and Alabama three straight years?

Big Ten teams Michigan State, Nebraska and Michigan have interesting non-conference games with Notre Dame, Oregon and Colorado respectively this weekend.

What should we make of two big SEC West showdowns? Mississippi State visits LSU while Texas A&M heads to Auburn.

Can Pitt recharge it's emotional battery for a road trip to face what should be a very angry Oklahoma State team?
