Week 3 of the college football season offers up an interesting mix of important conference clashes and intriguing nonconference showdowns.
This weekend, the top two ranked teams in the country, No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 USC, will head out onto the road to take on capable conference foes.
The Tide will head to Fayetteville to battle an Arkansas team that will be looking to make up for an embarrassing upset loss to Louisiana-Monroe last week, while the Trojans will take the trip up the California coast for a meeting with No. 21 Stanford.
Those are two of the marquee matchups of the weekend, but there are plenty of other interesting games such as Florida vs. Tennessee, Notre Dame vs. Michigan State and Cal vs. Ohio State to keep an eye on.
This is shaping up to be the best and most entertaining weekend of the college football season that we've seen so far.
Here are a few predictions for this weekend's action.
