Week 3 Predictions

Posted on September 11, 2013 at 10:45 PM

2-0 again last week, 4-0 on the season.

 

#1 Alabama 31 @ #6 Texas A&M 21

 

Bama's offense struggled in their one game against Virginia Tech, so the defense will need to play well. I think that the hype for this game will help Alabama. They will be pumped up for revenge whether they will admit it or not. Manziel will be held in check and there will be a decent number of personal fouls for fights involving a certain quarterback.

 

#16 UCLA 31 @ #23 Nebraska 38

 

College football seems to be getting higher scoring every year that passes. I remember when top SEC games would be 10 to 7, now it seems like every game between good teams is in the 30's, as I expect this to be. I think the home field advantage willl be significant. Hundley and Martinez both play well with a Nebraska TD in the final two minutes to win.

 

Upset: Vanderbilt 24 @ #13 South Carolina 21

 

South Carolina seems to be in a state of disarray. I think they are vulnerable and Vandy is ready to spring the upset.

 

#21 Notre Dame 35 @ Purdue 10

 

I'm being generous to Purdue here. Last Saturday I was planning on predicting 45-3, but I've decided Purdue may finally start playing better. Although when playing better is losing to #21 by 25 points, the season is going nowhere. Henry can't pass and they can't block. The touchdown will probably be in meaningless time and may not even be scored by the offense. Last year's loss to Michigan was actually Purdue's only 30+ point home loss since 1990. This could be the second.

About

National leaders are updated weekly. Conference and school leaders are updated yearly.

This site has the most comprehensive list of all-time college football individual statistical leaders online. Every stat on this site is based on the NCAA official rules, not the school or conference rules (no bowl games prior to 2002). Defensive stats, not including interceptions, did not become official until 2000. That is why you will see two lists; one is the official one since 2000, the other is more inclusive with the start date based on when most schools began reporting defensive stats.

Some defensive stats are marked with a single asterisk (*). This means that bowl games were included in the statistics reported by the school, therefore, the player's per game average has been subtracted for each bowl game played.

Other defensive stats are marked with two asterisks (**). This means the value is only approximated, based on the statistics that could be found.
