Collegefootbalfan.com Week 3

Big week of great matchups between ranked teams in nonconference games this week in Collegefootballfan.com Week 3.  We are looking for this to happen:  Louisville over Florida State as the Cardinals QB Lamar Jackson is hot and FSU’s defense is not.  LU’s defense is tough; Ole Miss over Alabama as the Rebels rolled back the Tide the last two years and the Hotty Toddies will be fired up before this game coming from in The Grove; the Irish over Michigan State on DeShone Kizer’s arm; Ohio State over Oklahoma based on Urban Myer outcoaching Bob Stoops; Stanford beats up USC after a week off and McCaffrey running wild; Oregon over Nebraska with a lot of points…

The Buckeye’s will be looking to hammer Oklahoma this Saturday.

We settle for New Mexico (1-1) at Rutgers (1-1) looking for the Lobos to edge the Scarlet Knights out because RU will be over confident.  Bob Davie has an experienced defense returning and RU is still trying to figure out what they got in Collegefootballfan.com Week 3. And in all fairness, Chris Ash is learning how to be a head coach on the job.   They struggled in the first half to 14-14 draw with FCS Howard last week. WR Janarion Grant might not be enough to get the Scarlet Knights on the board if they don’t get off to a quicker star this week.  They can’t take UNM lightly …

Rutgers may need a Knight in shining armor upon a noble steed to compete with the Lobos this Saturday.

Our Army at Buffalo kick off is scheduled for 7 pm on Oct. 24…Penn State’s offense got rolling last week late in their 42- 39 loss to Pitt until some questionable play-calling finished off a potential rally. We look for them to battle a tough Temple team coached by former Lion LB Matt Rhule in another tight one as Temple will not be intimidated and will continue to improve. PSU will be looking for revenge.  Temple hopes to get all-Conference RB Jahad Thomas back on to the field.  The Nittany Lion offense has to get clicking early…We’re interested seeing No. 25 Miami visit Appalachian State who almost pulled the opening weekend upset of Tennessee before falling in OT.  Miami is trying to climb back into significance under former Georgia HC Mark Richt, but ASU is an up and coming team under Scott Satterfield and is just looking for an opportunity like this to make a statement that the Sun Belt is a conference to be reckoned with in the future. They finished 11-2 last season.   I think they will come out on top…

 Appy State – up and coming since we saw them destroy Georgia State two years ago, 44-0.

What’s with Houston HC Tom Herman giving a peck on the cheek to all his big, hairy Houston Cougar players before game?   Ugh!  Give me a break! This is football.  There is no kissing in football!…The Alma Mater, D3 Juniata College, has gotten off to a flying start at 2-0 and face the Gettysburg Bullets this Saturday in Collegefootballfan.com Week 3. They took a 42-21 decision over Dickinson last Saturday. QB Hank Coyne threw 13-of-23 for 280 yards and three touchdowns. RB David Vidovic added a pair of scores and 59 yards rushing. Juniata picked off three passes.  Great start by HC Tim Launtz and his team…Mount Union (1-0) is at No. 1 in D3 with Wisconsin Whitewater (2-0) ranked No. 2.  Delaware Valley made a statement with a win over Wesley in its opener to step in at No. 14, and George Lazarides’ alma mater, Johns Hopkin’s, is No. 12… North Dakota State (2-0) is No. 1 in the FCS followed by the Richmond Spiders.  Fordham (1-1) is one game off the Top 25 after a big win over Elizabeth City State last week. They are off this week before hosting Ivy power Penn. Delaware (2-0) heads to play Wake Forest…

Delaware steps up to take on an ACC team this week.

Among the Ivy openers, returning co-champ Dartmouth has the greatest challenge hosting in-state rival New Hampshire (1-1).  I Collegefootballfan.com Week 3, we will tack on the Princeton Tigers game after the Rutgers game Saturday to see them play Lafayette (1-1), a team they knocked off last year, 40-7.  QB Joe Lovett returns to lead the Tigers after tying for the League led in TDs last season with 10…This Saturday the Arizona Wildcats will wear uniforms that will remember and honor the U.S.S. Arizona and its crew, which was bombed in the Pearl Harbor attack 75 years ago.  They host Hawaii. Their jerseys and helmets will display decals and patches commemorating the battleship. Players’ jersey back nameplates will feature the ship’s hull number, helmets will display U.S.S. Arizona’s battle cry, “At ’em Arizona”, and the “A” on their helmets’ sides will be that of the ship’s team’s logo worn by players on the ship now a Memorial site at Pearl Harbor. A nice tribute to the memory of that fatal day.  The Army-Navy game will be played three days after the actual anniversary. Surely there will be a tribute at the game that we will be at to see in Baltimore on December 10.

 

 

About Steveo

This website is dedicated to my unique and ongoing adventure to continue to see every major Division 1A (I despise the moniker “FBS”) football team play in person at least once. I’ve seen all 124 teams in existence as of 2013 play and plan to attend games with the five newest editions in the next few years. This also records my ongoing adventures attending as many college football games as possible every season. I “officially” started this crazy goal in 1979. The upcoming 2014 season will be the 35th straight year of sharing this fun endeavor with others in person and through weekly reviews about each game I attend. Entering 2014, I have attended 459 NCAA football games at all levels. My book, Tales from the Tailgate: From the Fan who’s seen ’em all! published in 2011, tells my story over 30 years of when I attended a game in person played by each D1A team for the first time. Now, I haven’t attended a game at every major stadium on each campus (yet) because I’d probably be unemployed and definitely divorced by now. However, I’m proud to report that I remain gainfully employed and have been married to the same woman (“Saint Laurie”) for almost 25 years. We have two kids that have recently ventured away from our home in Byram Township, NJ over the last few few years. Our daughter Alex is a junior at the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!), and our son Eric is now enlisted in the United States Navy (Go Navy!). You will find that my site and my book focus on enjoying a passion for college football and great opportunities to have fun with friends and family around the country.
