The third week is as special as the last as most of the top 25 games are filled with the best teams of the 2021-2022 NCAA College Football season. This week will be important for two things, the first will be the possible losses of any team in the top 10 of the AP Poll, and the second will be the probable upsets with the underdogs.

The most interesting game of week 3 is Alabama against Florida, the number one of the AP Poll plays against the number 11 in what will be a heavy and highly defensive game. Nebraska is another team that will have a big challenge up front when they play the Sooners in Oklahoma.

The opener of the week 3 is in Louisiana at 8:00 PM (ET), that game will be broadcast in the United States by ESPN on national television and the Internet through the apps and the official website of the network. Ohio Bobcats will be the visitor team against the Ragin' Cajuns of Louisiana-Lafayette.
