Updated College Football Championship Odds (Oct 5th)

2016 NCAAF Week 3 Winning Predictions

Written by on July 13, 2016

In the years before the playoffs were introduced to college football, the opening few weeks of the season were devoted to the big schools laying a beating on much lesser opponents. Things have changed dramatically now, though, as teams are now out to impress the playoff committee from the get go. Week 1 is filled with great match-up, and after a relatively tame Week 2, things get back to be super competitive again in the third week of the season. We don’t yet know the online college football odds for this week, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t take a quick look at some of the better games we can look forward to in Week 3.

In Depth Analysis On 2016 NCAAF Week 3 Winning Predictions


Alabama at Ole Miss

There is a better than average chance that both of these teams will be in the Top 10 in the college rankings when Week 3 rolls around. The SEC West is so good that it is possible for a team there to take a loss or two and still be in the playoff picture. The Alabama Crimson Tide have given themselves a heck of a tough schedule to get things started this season, but this is certainly the toughest of their opening 3 games. If they can go in and win this one, they will cement their position as favorites to win the division again this season.

Ohio State at Oklahoma

There can be no denying that this is the game of the week, as the bookies have both of these teams as legitimate candidates to win the National Championship. The Buckeyes have been accused of having far too soft a schedule in recent years, but they are certainly making things tougher for themselves this season. The winner of this one is going to really boost their credentials, while the loser may have to go unbeaten the rest of the way if they hope to be in the final four at the end of the season.

Michigan State at Notre Dame

Yet another game that could very well feature a pair of teams in the Top 10. The Fighting Irish are always a tough nut to crack at home, and a win there for the Spartans could really raise them up in the eyes of the playoff committee. This is another one of those games that could make or break a season for both teams, which is what makes it all the more intriguing.  

USC at Stanford

There is a strong belief that the USC Trojans are going to take a big step forward this season, but they have a killer schedule to start the season. They have to face Alabama in Week 1, and things don’t get any easier here with a tough trip to a highly favored Stanford Cardinal. There is no way that USC wins both of those games, but a good showing in each would certainly be viewed as a confidence builder.
