Two weeks have been completed in the college football season. Are things shaping up the way you expected?

The opening weeks are always exciting because it's good to see football again. However, they don't always produce the greatest games.

Teams are often a little flat out of the gate. As a result, they tend to schedule doormat opponents. There are exceptions to this, of course. We've certainly seen some elite matchups, but those have been few and far between.

Now, that's all about to change. Sure, there will still be games where the end results will be obvious, but those are becoming rarer as conference schedules start to get underway.

There are only two Week 3 games that have ranked teams going against each other. The first one comes on Thursday night, when No. 3 LSU travels to Mississippi to take on No. 25 Mississippi State.

The second game between ranked opponents falls on Saturday night in the game of the week. No. 1 Oklahoma will go on the road to take on No. 5 Florida State in a game with genuine National Championship implications.

In between, there are games that don't necessarily feature two ranked teams. But every game in college football is important.

Remember that in college football, one loss frequently knocks a team out of National Championship contention. Knowing that, every game carries a certain amount of drama.

Nothing can be taken for granted, even by a heavy favorite.

What can you expect this week? Well, anything can always happen, but keep it locked here to best prepare you for what promises to be another hectic week of college football.
