College Football Week 3 Preview

Week 3 of the 2013 college football season has been on everyone's radar since last November, when Texas A&M marched into Tuscaloosa and upset then top-ranked Alabama. This time, the now back-to-back defending BCS National Champion Crimson Tide comes into hostile Kyle Field in the rematch, arguably the most anticipated regular season game of the season.

Alabama and Texas A&M may headline the proceedings, but there's a lot to look forward to in Week 3.


Last season's upset by Texas A&M sent shockwaves through the college football world, and was the highlight of a thrilling debut season for Texas A&M in the SEC. Now the Crimson Tide come to College Station seeking revenge. You won't want to miss this one.

Texas A&M has barely broken a sweat in their first two games, while Alabama cruised to a 35-10 win over Virginia Tech in their season opener two weeks ago.


In another rematch of a thriller, Nebraska welcomes UCLA to Lincoln. Last year's game at the Rose Bowl came down to the fourth quarter, and this one should be no different.

After narrowly escaping in week one against Wyoming, the Cornhuskers righted the ship with a 56-13 win over Southern Miss last week. UCLA is coming off a bye week after routing Nevada 58-28 in their opener.


Cal has already given one B1G team a scare this season. Can they make it two?

Ohio State travels to Berkeley after a pair of easy home wins, while Cal is playing their third home game in a row. The Golden Bears came up short in their week one upset bid, falling 44-30 to Northwestern.


Play out all of these contests and the rest of week two in NCAA Football 14, now available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
