Every Sunday, Tom Fornelli and I sit down to review the weekend that was in college football for the rewind edition of the Eye On College Football Podcast.

According to the numbers people, a lot of fans enjoyed watching Texas A&M and Alabama toss around the pigskin on Saturday afternoon. For the Week 3 Rewind, Tom and I begin by discussing the Tide's impressive 49-42 victory over Texas A&M n College Station. We waste little time deciding whether or not the game was worth the hype -- it was -- and move on to breaking down what we learned about both BCS title hopefuls. 

After a healthy dose of Tide-Aggies -- apologies, we ran long to include as many games as we could -- it's time to talk upsets. Michigan, Notre Dame and Washington avoided upsets while Texas and Penn State took L's at the hands of underdogs. 

Stick around to the end for a buy/sell on UCF, a warning about drawing judgments from non-conference action and "Who Ya Got?" Oklahoma-Oklahoma State edition.
