College Football Picks Week 3: B/R's Expert Predictions for the Top 5 Games

Max RauschSenior Writer IISeptember 12, 2013

It's finally here: Alabama vs. Texas A&M, Johnny Football vs. Nick Saban. Will the young upstart be able to thrive against the wily veteran, or will Saban and Co. learn from last year and avenge their loss?

Week 2 was a week to forget for our experts, as USC and Texas let your favorite prognosticators down in a big way.  As college football season rolls into Week 3, we have three experts (Rausch, Thomaselli and Sallee) tied at the top at 7-3.

Let's see if our analysts can get back on track in Week 3.

All picks made straight up; spread is not a factor.
