The Week 3 college football slate didn't feature as many marquee matchups as Week 2, but the action that unfolded was hardly a disappointment. This is a sport that has a tendency of delivering the unexpected, and there were a number of games in which that was exactly the case.
No. 1 Georgia and No. 3 Florida State both improved to 3-0, but not until after surviving upset scares against South Carolina and Boston College, respectively. No. 10 Alabama also had trouble on the road against South Florida before the Crimson Tide pulled away late, avoiding what would have been consecutive losses after falling at home to Texas a week prior.
Other ranked teams were not so fortunate. No. 15 Kansas State fell at Missouri on a 61-yard field goal as time expired, and No. 11 Tennessee's woes at The Swamp continued with a 29-16 road loss to the Gators. The Volunteers have now dropped their last 10 road games against Florida dating back to the 2003 season.
Other ranked teams had a more routine Saturday. No. 2 Michigan, No. 6. Ohio State, No. 8 Washington, No. 9 Notre Dame and No. 14 LSU all won comfortably. Michigan's 31-6 victory against Bowling Green also marked the third and final game of Jim Harbaugh's suspension; the Wolverines coach is now set to return to the sidelines next week for a game against Rutgers.
CBS Sports was there every step of the way to update you with the latest scores, highlights and storylines throughout the evening.
