Top 10 College Football Games 2013 (Week 3)

Another week of college football action is in the books and boy were there some outstanding games that certainly shook up the rankings.  In perhaps the biggest game of the young season, the Michigan Wolverines upset the Notre Dame Fighting Irish 41-30.  The loss for the Irish came largely at the hands on their porous defense that couldn’t seem to stop the Wolverines who racked up 460 yards of total offense in front of 115,000 fans.  The win propelled Michigan all the way up to #11 in the FBS Associated Press Top 25 while the loss knocked Notre Dame all the way down to #21.

MiamiHurricanesNotre Dame was no alone in getting upset this week.  In another high profile game, the Miami Hurricanes took down the rival Florida Gators by a score of 21-16.  The Hurricanes were absolutely dominated by the Gators offense giving up over 200 yards more of total offense.  However, the Gators turned the ball over 5 times, including 4 in the red zone, to essentially hand the game over to the in-state rivals.

This past weekend also saw the unranked BYU Cougars take down the the Texas Longhorns 4-021.  The Longhorns were bounced out of the top 25 after being previously ranked as high as #15.  In addition, the USC Trojans (preisouly ranked #25) lost to the hapless Washington State Cougars and the #5 South Carolina Gamecocks lost to the #11 Georgia Bulldogs.  The Bulldogs moved up to #9 in the nation while South Carolina dropped to #13.

With the recap of week 2 action complete, let’s take a look at the Top 10 college football game for Week 3.

Top 10 College Football Games (Week 2)

Game of the Week: PSU vs Alabama

FTC Week 2 GOTW: Penn State vs Alabama

With most of the week 1 college football games in the books, it’s time to to look forward to what impact games are on the schedule for week 2.  Once again, the NCAA schedule makers put together many great games as the non-conference schedule pits many top ranked team from opposing conferences together.  Perhaps none more interesting than our games of the week.  Yes, you heard it right, games of the week (GOTW).  Choosing just 1 game for the GOTW was just too difficult so we decide to feature 2 great week 2 matchups:  Alabama vs Penn State and Notre Dame vs Michigan.

The Alabama Crimson Tide – Penn State Nittany Lions game promises to be one of the best games of the year as these 2 legendary football programs face off in Tuscaloosa.  It will be interesting to see how the physical PSU team matches up against the speed of Alabama.   you can bet Joe Paterno and company will try and control the clock with their strong running game and excellent defense.  The question is will it be enough to slow down the high powered offense of Bama?  Alabama is ranked #1 for a reason so PSU will have their work cut out for them.  If nothing else, Penn State should be able to control the ball and keep the game close – perhaps even putting a major scare into Alabama.

In this week’s second game of the week, we will see another pair of legendary college football teams facing off.  However, both schools have seen better days.  Both Notre Dame and Michigan have not been relevant in college football for a few years.  However, a new season bring new hope.  Both schools are coming off impressive week 1 wins:  Notre Dame defeated UCONN 30-10 while Michigan beat Purdue 23-12.  Notre Dame, under first year head coach Brian Kelly, are going with new starting QB Dayne Crist who looked solid against Purdue through for 205 yards and 1 touchdown. Armando Allen and Cierre Wood also ran the ball well for the Irish.

For the Wolverines, they have to be excited about new starting quarterback Denard Robinson.  Against Connecticut, Robinson broke a school record by rushing for 197 yards on 29 carries.  Robinson ended up accounting for 473 yards of total offense and completed 19 of 22 passes for 186 yards and a TD.  As good as Robinson looked they will need someone else to step up within Michigan’s new spread-option offense attack.

While the above mentioned games come in at #1 and #2 in our College football Games for week 2, below are the remaining 8 games to round out our top 10.
