College football: A fan’s guide to the Week 3 schedule




Before Week 3’s schedule, college football fans will have a wide variety of matchups to choose from.

You still have some college football games to watch in Week 3, even though it might be difficult to beat last week’s overall antics.

It’s unlikely that three teams ranked inside the Top 12 will lose at home consecutively, as happened with Notre Dame against Marshall, Texas A&M against Appalachian State, and Florida against Kentucky.

However, the season is still young enough for the clubs involved to still be getting to know one another. Fortunately, we have the unique privilege of being able to watch it all happen from the comfort of our couch.

This weekend, there is a right method to watch as many top-notch games as you can, and I’ll teach you how to do it.

On Friday night, two games are being played. The Louisville Cardinals will play the Florida State Seminoles in the first game, which will be a pivotal contest between ACC Atlantic rivals.
