2017 COLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEK 3

Week 3 is...*NOT AS BAD AS IT LOOKS*. It ain't last week, and the cancellations don't help, but at least there are fewer absolute patsy games and at least there aren't 4 runaway-best-matchups on at the same time (though the primetime slot is again a bit loaded).

Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017 Time (ET)

New Mexico at Boise State - ESPN 8:00 PM
Is Boise State stooping to playing a SunBelt team? No. No, this is the New Mexico Lobos of the Mountain West Conference (the one coached by Bob Davie)--you're probably thinking of the New Mexico State Aggies, the SunBelt team that beat the Lobos at home last week. This is a conference game for Boise, who last week managed to blow a late seemingly insurmountable lead to a Washington State that had lost their quarterback. They looked pretty good before that though.


Friday, Sept. 15, 2017 Time (ET)

Illinois at (22) USF - ESPN 7:00 PM
UMass at Temple - ESPNU 7:00 PM
Arizona at UTEP - ESPN 10:15 PM

Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017 Time (ET)

Air Force at (7) Michigan - BTN Noon
Yeah this game sucks but it might be goofball's #2 watchability this week, plus again gotta' give props to Michigan for a 3rd straight live opponent.

Delaware State at West Virginia - ROOT SPORTS Noon
Iowa State at Akron - CBSSN Noon
Kansas at Ohio - ESPNU Noon
NIU at Nebraska - FS1 Noon
(9) Oklahoma State at Pittsburgh - ESPN Noon
Possibly more of a challenge for OK Lite than USA#1.

(25) UCLA at Memphis - ABC Noon
Well this is a weird one. Probably worth checking out.

UConn at Virginia - ESPN2 Noon
UL Lafayette at Texas A&M - SECN Noon
Furman at NC State - ACCN 12:20 PM
Baylor at Duke - RSN 12:30 PM
Baylor finally enters a game as an underdog! Duke smoked some other nerds last week and this game could be an important step toward being "respected". Plus, how often do we get to root for Duke?

Coastal Carolina at UAB - Raycom (local) 1:00 PM
Welcome to hell, Fighting Needles' Gamecocks! Aka, Birmingham, AL.

Northern Colorado at Colorado - Pac-12N 2:00 PM
Tennessee Tech at Ball State - ESPN3 3:00 PM
Utah State at Wake Forest - ACCNExtra 3:00 PM
Central Michigan at Syracuse - ACCNExtra 3:30 PM
Hmm...'Cuse is favored by 10 after getting beaten by Middle Tennessee State last week. At the time I said, "It's not as bad as getting beaten by Eastern Michigan." but just to clarify, it is slightly worse than getting beaten by Central Michigan. Hope that's clear.

FIU at Indiana - Canceled —
Morgan State at Rutgers - BTN 3:30 PM
Just the sort of challenge Rutger needs!

Middle Tennessee at Minnesota - BTN 3:30 PM
As evidenced by beating Syracuse, MTSU is not your usual patsy. Minny looked super against Oregon State.

North Carolina at Old Dominion - Facebook 3:30 PM
Our first watchable Facebook game!

North Texas at Iowa - ESPN2 3:30 PM
Notre Dame at Boston College - ESPN 3:30 PM
SMU at (20) TCU - ESPNU 3:30 PM
TCU basically smashed Arkansas last week but SMU is a very different animal coached by Chad Morris (architect of Clemson's offense) averaging a cool 56 points per game...so far.

(23) Tennessee at (24) Florida - CBS 3:30 PM
Hard not to see this as a duel for 2nd place in the SEC East, or two idiot coaches that'll somehow have one emerge victorious. I'm going to, again, just advise Florida (as I will all TN opponents) to run the damn triple option.

(16) Virginia Tech at East Carolina - CBSSN 3:30 PM
(10) Wisconsin at BYU - ABC 3:30 PM
Mercer at (15) Auburn - SECN Alt. 4:00 PM
Purdue at Missouri - SECN 4:00 PM
As an SEC fan I'm not looking forward to this one at all! Purdue has evidently been playing pretty well which could be enough to beat these jackasses.

Army at (8) Ohio State - FOX 4:30 PM
Oregon State at (21) Washington State - Pac-12N 5:30 PM
Colgate at Buffalo - ESPN3 6:00 PM
North Carolina A&T at Charlotte - WCCB/CUSA.TV 6:00 PM
Tulane at (2) Oklahoma - FSOK PPV 6:00 PM
Bethune-Cookman at Florida Atlantic - beIN SPORTS 6:30 PM
Kent State at Marshall - CUSA.TV 6:30 PM
Alabama A&M at South Alabama - ESPN3 7:00 PM
Appalachian State at Texas State - ESPN3 7:00 PM
Colorado State at (1) Alabama - ESPN2 7:00 PM
Idaho at Western Michigan - ESPN3 7:00 PM
Idaho State at Nevada - ATTSNRM 7:00 PM
Louisiana Tech at WKU - Facebook 7:00 PM
A big time Conference USA matchup! Another watchable Facebook game!

(12) LSU at Mississippi State - ESPN 7:00 PM
It's at Mississippi State and that'll mean lots of cowbell for at least the first quarter.

Oregon at Wyoming - CBSSN 7:00 PM
Southern at UTSA - KCWX-TV/CUSA.TV 7:00 PM
Southern Miss at ULM - ESPN3 7:00 PM
Tulsa at Toledo - ESPN3 7:00 PM
Bowling Green at Northwestern - BTN 7:30 PM
Georgia State at (5) Penn State - BTN 7:30 PM
Georgia Tech at UCF - Canceled —
(18) Kansas State at Vanderbilt - ESPNU 7:30 PM
Hello? Not sure why this is happening, but it might be amusing.

Kentucky at South Carolina - SECN 7:30 PM
Samford at (13) Georgia - SECN Alt. 7:30 PM
Arizona State at Texas Tech - FSN 8:00 PM
Oh, to be a fly on the wall as a team gameplans for Texas Tech; there'll be a lot of long sighs, groans, and head-shaking. I predict...a shootout!

Cincinnati at Miami, OH - FOX 19/ESPN3 8:00 PM
(3) Clemson at (14) Louisville - ABC 8:00 PM
YOUR main event and probably the best defense Lamar Jackson will face.

(17) Miami, FL at (11) Florida State - PPD to 10/07 —
*Dammit!*

Rice at Houston - ESPN3 8:00 PM
It's like a battle for Houston, even though nobody really wants it anymore and no one ever seriously has to weigh a choice between these two schools.

Troy at New Mexico State - ESPN3 8:00 PM
For a SunBelt team, New Mexico State has been looking pretty strong so far (losing by just 6 at AZ State, and beating New Mexico on the road). Perhaps this is their year to compete for the...division title to the conference championship game? For the Sun Belt title? That seems like overkill.

Texas at (4) USC - FOX 8:30 PM
If you're a USC fan, you should be expecting to enjoy this, thoroughly.

Fresno State at (6) Washington - Pac-12N 9:30 PM
San Jose State at Utah - ESPN2 10:00 PM
Ole Miss at California - ESPN 10:30 PM
Not very often you get a late-night SEC-Pac12 matchup. Cal is a mystery wrapped in an enigma as evidenced by being a mere 3.5 point dog here. Ole Miss' next game is Bama in 2 weeks so it'll be interesting to see if they're even prepared for this expected-to-be-terrible team.

(19) Stanford at San Diego State - CBSSN 10:30 PM
As discussed in last week's broadcast; priojected as an unusually brisk game.

Re: 2017 COLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEK 3

Oh, thanks for doing this again. I was gonna do one tonight if no one else started one.

What's the line for the USC/Texas game? Seems like the Texas line would be the way to go if it's like more than 10

2017 COLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEK 3

Oh wow. Seems like a lot. Gonna need some riverman confirmation first, haha.

Also strangely looking forward to the Illinois at USF game Friday night. Haven't watched a Lovie smith coached Illinois team yet and the matchup against Charlie strong is kinda intriguing! Should be some lulz. And Lovie is returning to Tampa where he used to coach. Weird!

Re: 2017 COLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEK 3

It does seem like a lot. I believe the theory is that USC is a very good team whereas Texas is not.

Tom "Maybe one day we'll have good players" Herman seems to be saying they need more time...

Re: 2017 COLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEK 3

Texas opened at -11.5 and got bet all the way down.

I have 0 confidence in Florida to do anything, a blow out at home isn't out of the question

Just gotta rely on your defense for your offense, that's all! 3 pick sixes should be enough.

Just how bad do you think they'll have to be to get McElwain fired? 4-8? 2-10? Whole team straight up quits on him? He takes out his gamecock and starts pissing live on TV during a timeout?

Just got linked to this video of Auburn vs. Miss. St several years ago. Final score: 3-2. Think I watched a little of it.

He announces it was actually him in the shark humping picture and he paid off whoever finally stepped forward to claim it, that would be a fun way to go

I don't know, thing is the new AD didn't hire him so who knows what that relationship looks like. Honestly anything 6 wins and under and I would guess he's heavily considered to be gone depending on how the losses look.

5 losses being Michigan, Tennessee, Georgia, LSU, FSU is different than say Michigan, Kentucky/vandy/SoCar, Kentucky/Vandy/SoCar, LSU, FSU

I think GoldenBears's long vol strategy is gonna work well in Week 3.

Illinois
Purdue
Central Michigan
Tulsa
Bowling Green

all ripe to pull upsets
