College football, now with stakes! After a week that had us hoping for (and getting) upsets, Week 3 just comes right out and says it: somebody's dreams are getting crushed this week.
Three games feature ranked-on-ranked action (Florida-Tennessee, Notre Dame-Michigan State and USC-Stanford), with another five ranked teams playing road games.
Rivalry intrigue abounds as well, with one of the final annual editions of the BYU-Utah Holy War leading the way.

Many other things are also happening! The complete Week 3 TV schedule below
