College Football Scores Week 3: 3 Teams That Took a Huge Step Forward
With the third week of college football already in the books, certain teams are already struggling while others are turning into the dominant forces they were thought to be.
There is also a third category of teams that were off the radar in the preseason, and have turned into solid teams climbing in the rankings or climbing into the rankings flat out.
After a wild Week 3 that saw a plethora of exciting finishes and upsets, these are the teams that took a huge step forward in the efforts for bowl eligibility and national respect.
Baylor—With Baylor going 2-0 in their first two games of the season, the Big 12 team is finally looking like they deserve to be in one of the more dangerous conferences in college football.
After beating Stephen F. Austin College 48-0 in a lightning-shortened game that could have seen the Baylor Bears further run up the score. The schedule is tougher from here on out, but the Bears should enjoy their No. 19 ranking while they can.
South Florida—The South Florida Bulls game out in Week 1 and shocked the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame, and they look to carry that momentum through their entire season.
While South Florida’s schedule isn’t tough enough to warrant serious BCS consideration, the No. 20 team in the nation beat Florida A&M 70-17 in what should be a warning shot to the other teams on the schedule.
Clemson—After Auburn almost was snuffed out in both of the first two games this season, the Clemson Tigers brought down the defending national champions with a convincing 38-24 victory.
While Clemson isn’t ranked, they should be for Week 4, but will fall out of the rankings again in Week 5 when they suffer the fury of a Florida State Seminoles team that had their hearts broken by the No. 1 Sooners.
