Week 2 of the college football season featured thrilling upsets, and Week 3 has the potential to play a big role in the national championship race.

The matchup everyone has been waiting for is finally here. No. 1 Alabama will travel to College Station to take on reigning Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and No. 6 Texas A&M. The Aggies were the only team to knock off the Crimson Tide last season, so Alabama will be looking to get revenge.

The loss didn't end up hurting the Crimson Tide, as they went on to win their second straight national title, but it made Manziel the front-runner for the Heisman Trophy.

Alabama had a week off to make adjustments after its offensive line was exposed against Virginia Tech in the opener. The Crimson Tide ran for only 96 yards against the Hokies, which is not like recent Alabama teams.

The road to a three-peat goes through Kyle Field. The winner of this game will be in the driver's seat in the SEC West, and the loser will need help to get back in contention.

Tennessee travels to Eugene to take on the No. 2 Oregon Ducks in an intriguing nonconference matchup. Oregon is averaging 425 rushing yards and 62.5 points per game. Its defense has allowed 13 points in three games, so the Volunteers will have their hands full.

The Pac-12 and the Big Ten will have big games this week.

No. 1 Ohio State will travel to Berkeley to take on California. According to Zack Meisel of the Cleveland Plain Dealerthere's a chance Braxton Miller will be able to play after spraining his MCL on the opening drive against San Diego State in Week 2.

No. 23 Nebraska hosts No. 16 UCLA in the only nonconference game that pits ranked teams against each other in Week 3.

No. 19 Washington will travel across the country to take on Illinois. The Illini beat up Cincinnati last week, so this could be a dangerous game for the Huskies.

Arizona State will host No. 20 Wisconsin in a night game.

Here is the complete schedule for Week 3.
