College Football TV Schedule and Point Spreads – Week 3, September 19th

college football tv schedule, point spreads - week 3, saturday september 19 | espn, abc, fsn, big ten networkWell, well, well.

Before we get to the Week 3 college football tv schedule and point spreads, let’s quickly review what was quite a decisive September weekend for the Big Ten that we just got done with.

Penn State still has yet to show any chinks in its armor, rolling over Syracuse 28-7, although they still have not been tested.

Ohio State was not able to shed the “can’t win the big one” label as their defense faded down the stretch against USC and Terrelle Pryor continued to look overmatched against good defenses in Jim Tressel’s system.

Michigan, of course, re-announced its presence on the national scene with a thrilling victory over Notre Dame that vaulted it back into the top 25.

And my alma mater Indiana moved to 2-0 on the young season with a tough, hard-fought 23-19 victory over…Western Michigan. (I won’t start getting excited until the Hoosiers beat someone without a direction at the beginning of their name.)

Actually, the truth is that no one care what Indiana last weekend. But Minnesota, Wisconsin, Northwestern, and Iowa all moved to 2-0. Say what you will about the competition, but being only four games away from bowl eligibility (for those who have not yet feasted on an FCS opponent) in mid-September is always a good thing.

So what does Week 3 of the college football season — for everyone, not just the Big Ten — have in store? Honestly, not nearly as many compelling matchups as last weekend. Still, there are a few highlights, starting with the two weekday games we have to look forward to on this week’s college football TV schedule:
