NCAA Division I Football Week 3

Week 3 College Football SMU at Michigan Game Odds

Wow, what a difference a week makes. In their first game at Notre Dame the Michigan Wolverines were ambushed in a Week one 24-17 loss that had the Maize and Blue faithful in full panic mode about what was supposed to be a breakout season for Jim Harbaugh and crew. But last week, after six days of abuse from the media and fans, and smarting from their embarrassing opener Michigan took apart Western Michigan 49-3 for an easy payout. Now all of a sudden everyone has calmed down and is again dreaming big. Week three will see the Wolverines host the defenseless SMU Mustangs, who are also missing an offense after two weeks of action... More

Week 3 NCAAF Betting LSU at Auburn Football Picks

Last year Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge was in a near riot when the homestanding LSU Tigers fell behind the Auburn Tigers 20-0 early in the second quarter. At that point athletic director Joe Alleva and head coach Ed Orgeron were likely fearing for their jobs, if they were lucky. But from there one of the great rallies in recent college football history took place as the Bayou Bengals ended up as 27-23 winners and left the field to a thundering and hysterical ovation while Auburn and head coach Gus Malzahn went from hero to zero status in a couple of hours. Now Auburn will be looking to turn the table and gain revenge as they host LSU Saturday... More

Week 3 Football Odds Kent State at Penn State NCAAF Spreads

Week 3 includes what appears to be a mismatch between a perennial loser from the Mid-American Conference going up against a bona fide Big Ten Conference and College Football Playoff contender. After a scary opening game, the Penn State Nittany Lions flexed their muscles in an impressive prime time national TV payout over Pitt last week. The Kent State Golden Flashes are coming off a win over 1AA Howard that followed a heartbreaking loss at Illinois. For Penn State their near-death experience against Appalachian State in week one may have scared them straight. For Kent State they are fighting to show progress after five bad seasons under Paul Haynes. Penn State hosts Kent State Saturday... More

Week 3 NCAAF Picks – Georgia State at Memphis Football Odds

Week three offers a college football Friday night appetizer between a program that is just in its sixth season of existence at the 1A level going up against a Group of Five program desperate for an escape to the Big Time of Power Five. The Memphis Tigers are coming off four straight bowl seasons and a ten-win season for the second time in four years. Memphis has shown tremendous improvement and is occasionally mentioned as a program that may be promoted to the Big 12 or another Power Five League. The Georgia State Panthers are coming off the second bowl season in their history and simply want to develop consistency as a Group of Five program. Memphis will host Georgia State Friday night... More

Week 3 NCAAF Bets – Boston College at Wake Forest Football Lines

Week Three opens with an intriguing Atlantic Coast Conference Thursday night matchup between two improved programs that appear to be on the upswing when the Wake Forrest Demon Deacons host the Boston College Eagles. In his sixth season at BC head coach Steve Addazio finally has the program in his image. Four bowl appearances in the last five seasons have also served to increase confidence and recruiting. Dave Clawson has experienced a similar transformation of his Wake Forest program and has led the Demon Deacons to back to back bowl seasons... More

Week 3 Football Picks – West Virginia at North Carolina State NCAAF Predictions

We’ll see two of the top quarterbacks in college football go after each other in a critical Week 3 matchup for the North Carolina State Wolfpack. After knocking off FCS James Madison and an overmatched Georgia State club behind Ryan Finley, NC State has a handful in the No. 14 West Virginia Mountaineers and Heisman hopeful Will Grier. That is if the game is actually played. With Hurricane Florence forming in the Atlantic and with a path headed directly for the Carolinas, this matchup could be impacted in a number of ways...More

Week 3 NCAAF Spread – Vanderbilt at Notre Dame Football Gambling Odds

After watching the Notre Dame Fighting Irish barely get by Ball State at home last week as a 34-point favorite, the Vanderbilt Commodores are saying there’s a chance for their Week 3 matchup. Not a good one, but there’s still a chance and anything can happen. Looking nothing like a top-10 team, the Irish squeaked by the invigorated Cardinals, who went toe-to-toe with their CFP hopeful opponent. Notre Dame’s offense lacked substance and Vandy has done a nice job restricting opponents, allowing just 17 points total in their two wins...More

Week 3 Football Predictions – Boise State at Oklahoma State NCAAF Wagering Lines

The Boise State Broncos are back in a familiar place, playing as a contender to be the top Group of Five team this season. After a couple of tune up tilts where they averaged 59 points per outing, the Broncos face their toughest test of the season when they travel to Stillwater for a Week 3 showdown with the Big 12’s Oklahoma State Cowboys. This has the makings of a shootout with both teams putting up lopsided numbers, so expect a defensive effort to play a critical role in the outcome of this one...More

Week 3 NCAAF Betting – Florida State at Syracuse Football Picks

You can’t blame Willie Taggart for taking his dream job and returning home to the state of Florida. But unlike some of his other gigs, the pressure is always on the Florida State Seminoles to win the ACC and contend for a national championship. Those expectations are unrealistic this season and the Noles showed they have a long way to go after their first two games. His tenure will be judged on wins and losses, and Taggart takes a career coaching record of 48-51 into Saturday’s ACC opener against the Syracuse Orange...More

Week 3 Football Odds – BYU at Wisconsin NCAAF Spreads

While it seems nearly every other team in the Big Ten is dealing with some controversy – either on the field or off of it – the Wisconsin Badgers just keep winning to keep pace with the other top teams in the conference. Bucky has its problems, but winning and annihilating opponents isn’t one of them. The Badgers beat a non-conference foe in Madison for the 41st consecutive time and they look to extend that streak in Week 3 against the BYU Cougars, whose season opening win over Arizona doesn’t look so good now...More

Week 3 NCAAF Picks – Houston at Texas Tech Football Odds

Major Applewhite finally has his signature win. All summer long, there were rumors of Applewhite being fired if he didn’t meet certain benchmarks as head coach of the Houston Cougars this season. This is only his second year as head coach of the program, but expectations are sky-high after Tom Herman had an enormous amount of success here, and Applewhite was under pressure to keep it going after a disappointing 7-6 record last year. A win over the Texas Tech Red Raiders on the road in Lubbock in Week 3 would help in that regard too, and it would put his old rival Kliff Kingsbury squarely on the hot seat...More

Week 3 NCAAF Bets – Duke at Baylor Football Lines

The Duke Blue Devils are riding high right now. Duke is sitting at 2-0 with wins over Army and Northwestern, and David Cutcliffe is on pace to have this team bowling once again. This team is looking to go undefeated in non-conference play, but to do that they must beat the Baylor Bears in Week 3 of the college football season and FCS NC Central before their ACC slate gets underway. Baylor is looking for the same undefeated non-conference start in Matt Rhule’s second season in charge, leading to a lot of intrigue in this one...More

Week 3 College Football Alabama at Mississippi Game Odds

Give the Purdue Boilermakers this much: They haven't been afraid to go up against a brutal non-conference schedule this year. After playing a neutral site game against Louisville and hosting arguably one of the best teams in the MAC in Ohio, the Boilers are headed to SEC country to take on the Missouri Tigers in Columbia before starting off the brutal Big Ten docket...More

Week 3 NCAAF Betting Ohio State at TCU Football Picks

One of the most pivotal games of Week 3 of the college football season will take place on Saturday night, when the Ohio State Buckeyes and TCU Horned Frogs meet in a neutral site game that may as well be a home game for TCU. The Buckeyes agreed to this game in order to keep their access to the fertile Texas recruiting market, and now they are looking to take care of business without head coach Urban Meyer on the sidelines. However, the Horned Frogs know that they have a decent chance to pull off the upset given the circumstances, and Gary Patterson will be up to the challenge...More

Week 3 Football Odds – USC at Texas NCAAF Spreads

Two of the most iconic programs in college football will square of in Week 3 of the college football season when the Texas Longhorns host the USC Trojans this week. It hasn’t been a great start to the year for either team. USC wasn’t able to put away UNLV until the fourth quarter in its opener, and the Trojans were listless on offense against Stanford last week. Meanwhile, Texas has simply been listless through its first two games. The Longhorns lost their season opener to Maryland for the second straight year, and they barely hung on to beat Tulsa last week. One of these two fan bases will feel better about itself this week, while the other fan base starts to gnash its teeth...More

Week 3 NCAAF Picks – Washington at Utah Football Odds

The Washington Huskies have a tough test ahead of them late Saturday night when they travel to take on the Utah Utes in Week 3 college football action. Two years ago, Washington almost saw its undefeated season come to an end on the road in Salt Lake City. The Huskies and Utes were tied late, but then Dante Pettis returned a punt for a touchdown to keep Washington’s perfect season intact. This time around, the Huskies aren’t perfect, but a loss would knock them out of the top ten and ruin their chances at making the College Football Playoff...More

Week 3 NCAAF Bets – Fresno State at UCLA Football Lines

This is not what Chip Kelly had in mind when he returned to coaching college football. The UCLA Bruins are off to an 0-2 start and have not looked good in losses to the Cincinnati Bearcats and the Oklahoma Sooners. To be fair to the Bruins, Cincinnati may be one of the best Group of Five teams in the country, while Oklahoma may be the best team in the country, but that comes as little solace to UCLA fans. That’s especially true considering they must now face another very good team when the Fresno State Bulldogs come to town in Week 3...More

Week 3 Football Picks – Middle Tennessee State at Georgia NCAAF Odds

The Georgia Bulldogs are proving that last year wasn’t just a flash in the pan. The Bulldogs have looked great through their first two games of the season. They hammered a good FCS team in Austin Peay in their season opener, and they thrashed South Carolina in a pseudo-rivalry game last week. In Week 3 of the college football season, the Bulldogs will face the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders. They are heavy favorites on the CFB betting line, and most observers are expecting another blowout win for the Dawgs...More

Week 3 NCAAF Spread – San Jose State at Oregon Football Gambling

If you’re an Oregon Ducks fan, you’re probably flying pretty high right now. The Ducks felt aggrieved after Willie Taggart left for Florida State after just one year in Eugene, but the team hasn’t missed a beat in his absence. They are back to the high-scoring Ducks of old with 120 points through their first two games of the year, and the decision to hire Mario Cristobal seems to be a shrewd one. In Week 3, they have a chance to keep their 60 PPG average going against the lowly San Jose State Spartans. San Jose State might be the worst FBS team not named UTEP, and they could end the season winless...More

Week 3 College Football Georgia Southern at Clemson Game Odds

While most games all throughout the Carolinas were cancelled or moved due to Hurricane Florence, as of Wednesday afternoon it looks like the Clemson Tigers are still going to host the Georgia Southern Eagles in Week 3. Clemson is a massive favorite per the CFB betting odds in this one and anything other than a blowout would be a disappointment considering Georgia Southern went 2-10 in 2017. The Eagles have already matched last year’s two wins this season though...More

Week 3 NCAAF Betting – Miami (FL) at Toledo Football Picks

No, this isn’t a misprint. The Miami Hurricanes, not the Miami RedHawks, will be heading north to take on the Toledo Rockets in Week 3 of the college football season. This is a tricky game for the Hurricanes. Toledo is one of the best Group of Five teams in the nation, and the program has consistently been a regional power in the MAC for almost all of this decade. If Miami isn’t careful, they could lose this one and fall to 1-2 on the year...More

Week 3 Football Odds – Oklahoma at Iowa State NCAAF Spreads

The Oklahoma Sooners won’t be taking the Iowa State Cyclones lightly any time soon. Iowa State dealt Oklahoma its lone regular season loss last year, stunning the Sooners in Norman 38-31. The loss couldn’t be blamed on an abundance of turnovers or anything particularly sloppy either, it was just the Cyclones beating a Sooners team that had probably been looking past them. Their Week 3 rematch is bound to be pretty interesting as Iowa State fans are eager to see their team try to make it two in a row over the Sooners...More
