Week 3 of the college football season brought yet another jam-packed Saturday of action. From the noon window to the late-night games stretching into the early hours of Sunday morning, there were plenty of intriguing matchups. Some provided clarity in the college football landscape, while others produced more questions than answers. In total, 23 squads ranked in the AP Top 25 were in action throughout the day.
Among the early highlights was the renewal of an old Big 12 rivalry between No. 3 Oklahoma and Nebraska, which marked another survive-and-advance moment for the Sooners. No. 8 Cincinnati also founds itself in a fight on the road at Indiana while two ranked ACC teams -- No. 15 Virginia Tech and No. 24 MIami -- lost to Michigan State and West Virginia, respectively, in nonconference battles. The mid-afternoon slate was also highlighted by No. 1 Alabama's thriller at No. 11 Florida on CBS.
Finally, the prime time slot brought a crowd-pleaser as No. 10 Penn State edged out No. 22 Auburn in a White Out game fans had been waiting for. To cap off the night, No. 23 BYU earned another impressive victory against a Pac-12 opponent by edging No. 19 Arizona State, while, No. 13 UCLA fell to Fresno State in a classic shootout after midnight.
