Week 2 of the college football season left us feeling all warm and fuzzy after watching both Kentucky and Kansas snap decades-long streaks. The Jayhawks 31-7 victory over Central Michigan ended a 46-game road losing streak dating back to a September win at UTEP in 2009. Meanwhile, the Kentucky Wildcats defeated Florida 27-16, breaking their 31-game losing cycle against the Gators.

It was also the weekend of the underdogs, with Duke beating Northwestern, Indiana upsetting Virginia and Arizona State stunning Michigan State, as the Herm Edwards experiment continues to pique the nation's interest and the Sun Devils go 2-0 to start the season. No one saw that coming. Bryce Love ran, Kahlil Tate didn’t and Houston’s Ed Oliver cornered some of the Heisman market with his impressive half of play against the Arizona Wildcats. So many more statements to be made, so let's look ahead to Week 3.

College football games are the least of our worries, but seeing as this is a weekly college football schedule post, it’s a thing to make note of. Below, the Week 3 schedule, sorted by an estimate of watchability. As always, note “watchability” is never intended to perfectly correlate with how good your

Last year, college football executed its first-ever College Football Playoff and to no one’s surprise, it was a huge success. The Ohio State Buckeyes, Alabama Crimson Tide, Oregon Ducks and Florida State Seminoles were voted into the four-team playoff by a committee, but not without controversy.

Florida State at Syracuse – The Orange remains unbeaten after back-to-back victories against Western Michigan and FCS Wagner. But head coach Dino Babers isn’t kidding himself about the difficulties or implications that come with an opponent like Florida State. The Seminoles are not as formidable as Willie Taggart would have us believe, suffering a three-touchdown loss to Virginia Tech and narrowly escaping FCS team Samford. Yes, the Noles are talented and athletic, but they are holding themselves back with careless turnovers, and they can’t stop the pass game. That bodes well for Cuse senior QB Eric Dungey, who is getting early Heisman hype for his 402 yards, seven touchdowns and only one interception. This is going to be a fun one, folks.

No. 11 LSU, No. 12 Virginia Tech make big jumps in AP Top 25

  No. 11 LSU, No. 12 Virginia Tech make big jumps in AP Top 25 No. 11 LSU and No. 12 Virginia Tech made the biggest jumps in the first Associated Press college football poll of the regular season after the opening weekend when most of the top teams were unchallenged. Alabama remained No. 1 with a blowout of Louisville, and No. 2 Clemson and No. 3 Georgia held their spots in the poll released Tuesday. The Crimson Tide received 48 first-place votes, Clemson had 12 and Wisconsin had one. The Buckeyes are just four points ahead of the Badgers and only nine points ahead of No. 6 Oklahoma.LSU, which was ranked No.

12 LSU at 7 Auburn – What do Tigers dream of when they take a little tiger snooze? Do they dream of game-winning field goals or Nick Saban in a catwoman suit? One thing is for sure: Both Gus Malzahn and Ed Orgeron will be envisioning the different ways their teams can win this exciting SEC showdown. Will it be at the hands of their respective transfer quarterbacks?Jarrett Stidham’s accuracy (71%) is key, but Joe Burrow has his hands in every part of LSU’s offense. Both teams have issues on the offensive line, but Auburn edges LSU on defense with a front that is quite possibly the best in the country. It’s a home game for Auburn, so it will probably roll. But LSU has been on a roll itself since beating Miami, so we could potentially see a closer game than expected.

Houston at Texas Tech – If we learned anything from Houston’s definitive win over Arizona this past weekend, it's that there is no real way to stop Ed Oliver from coming for your quarterback. So good luck everybody else. Offensively, Tech brings a solid run game led by Da’Leon Ward, but the question at quarterback looms large: Will McLane Carter be back for the Red Raiders, or will freshman Alan Bowman continue to handle his business? Texas Tech continues to struggle defensively, which could leave the door open for D’Eriq King and Patrick Carr to come in and clean house. Also, the Cougars have won four of their last six road games. So there’s that.

Nick Saban continues to refuse discussing Jalen Hurts' role

  Nick Saban continues to refuse discussing Jalen Hurts' role Nick Saban has made it pretty darn clear recently that he’s sick and tired of all the questions about Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa. On Wednesday during his press conference, he once again refused to divulge any real information about what he plans to do with Hurts, who will be the backup to Tagovailloa on Saturday against Arkansas State.

College football is already at Week 3 and these are the three best games of the week that you need to make sure you’re watching. For the first time this season, there isn’t a matchup of top-five teams playing in college football this week. After fans were spoiled with No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 3 Florida

No. 4 Ohio State at. 15 TCU – It's the biggest game of the weekend and the last game without Urban Myer. Ohio State’s high-flying offense vs. TCU’s stingy defense. But the Buckeyes also have Nick Bosa, and that advantage will go a long way against a tired TCU offense. Shawn Robinson will definitely be on his toes, something he is good at, being super athletic and all. But the daylight he sees will be minimal, posing a problem when it comes to hitting his intended targets like KaVontae Turpin. Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins will face a similar problem on the Buckeyes side of the ball, but luckily running backs Mike Weber and J.K. Dobbins take some of the pressure off, combining for 364 yards and four touchdowns so far this year. Gary Patterson’s team needs to avoid big, explosive plays if it wants to overcome the oddsmakers.

No. 10 Washington at Utah – After Washington’s loss to Auburn, it’s hard to accurately judge just how good the Huskies truly are. But a definitive win over a tough Utah team in Salt Lake would go a long way in the voracious Pac-12. It’s a dog-eat-dog conference, but surviving Salt Lake would help the Huskies assert some dominance over the Pac. The Utes boast the nation's No. 1 statistical defense, surrendering only 144 yards a game. Granted it was against Weber State and Northern Illinois, but still. Washington has won 10 of 11 all-time meetings between the two teams and, more importantly, the Huskies have won four of the last five since 2011. Jake Browning and Myles Gaskin might prove too much for the Utes.

Hall Over the Place

Over the course of the 2018 season, Emily Hall Van Buskirk will be traveling across the country, attending as many college football games as humanly possible. In this sacred section, she will share with you the details of her travels as she embarks on this adventure. Follow along as she makes her way across the country, bringing back tales of glory and memoirs of misfortune.

Week 2 was slightly less hectic than the Week 1 adventure…like three games less hectic. This weekend, I ventured out into the desert to check in on the Herm Edwards Experiment. And the Sun Devils did not disappoint. There were not a lot of points in ASU’s 16-13 victory over then No. 15 Michigan State, but a thrilling last-second, 28-yard field goal sealed the deal for the Sun Devils and categorized the experiment as successful.

I was reunited with an old friend coach Rob Likens from my days covering the California Golden Bears.

I experienced punting from a true professional, witnessing four punts inside the 20-yard line by ASU's Michael Sleep-Dalton.

And I suffered through the 107-degree heat alongside the players on the sideline for a majority of the game.

Florence continues to impact college football game schedules

  Florence continues to impact college football game schedules Hurricane Florence continues to impact college football game schedules this week. The kickoff for Middle Tennessee's game at No. 3 Georgia on Saturday has been moved to noon because of concerns about the impact of Hurricane Florence. The game had been scheduled for a 7:15 p.m. kickoff. The game will be televised on ESPN News, instead of ESPN2. Presbyterian also has canceled its football game with Stetson on Saturday because of the approach of Hurricane Florence. The FCS school was to play at home in Clinton, South Carolina. Presbyterian then shifted the game to the opponents' home field in Florida.

Next year’s slate of games features the usual bevy of impactful in-conference gems, but there are some marquee matchups between Michigan State at Arizona State—An early look at how Herm Edwards’s Sun Devils measure up to a Top 25 team. Week 3 : TCU vs. Ohio State (at AT&T Stadium).

But no trip would be complete without an added athletic element, so I took in an Arizona Diamondbacks game at the charming and air-conditioned Chase Field. Sadly, I didn’t manage to sneak in the outfield pool despite showing up in my bathing suit (kidding). But I did treat myself to a frozen margarita. Unfortunately, the Dbacks fell to the Atlanta Braves 9-5 when Arizona’s bullpen imploded in the ninth inning.

Stay tuned next week as I head to Georgia to cover the Bulldogs and finally stand between the infamous hedges to cover one of my favorite teams, Middle Tennessee, as it plays underdawgs in Athens.
