The biggest game of the college football season has arrived. Well, until it is dethroned by some other game, which is usually how this cycle works. For now, however, this is it.
Nick Saban vs. Johnny Manziel vs. The World has a lovely ring to it, doesn’t it? College Station will play host to this marquee event, which will provide a shakeup in the Top 10 of the AP Top 25 one way or another.
Elsewhere, UCLA will make the voyage to Memorial Stadium to take on Nebraska, the only other Week 3 matchup that features ranked teams going toe to toe. I’d say it’ll be much better next weekend, but I’d be lying. Don’t look at the Week 4 schedule just yet—it will only make you cry.
Although quality matchups featuring Top 25 teams might be lacking once again—all teams are equal once the fine folks in Las Vegas get involved. The power of the point spread is real.
This pace of picking winners against the spread cannot possibly hold up, but we’re going to ride the hot streak as long as we possibly can. Hop aboard.
Overall Record Against the Spread Entering Week 3: 26-12
