Some Takeaways from Week 3 of College Football

  • Kickers win games. As we already know, kickers are pretty important in the game of college football. Thanks to USC’S walk-on kicker, Chase McGrath, the team was able to knock off Texas in double overtime. As for the Tennessee Volunteers, they didn’t find such luck in their kicking game against the Gators. With three missed field goals, Butch Jones found his team leaving The Swamp with a loss.

  • Feleipe Franks has an arm. Previously ranked #24 Florida beat the Volunteers on a 63 yard Hail Mary as time expired. So why haven’t we seen the red shirt freshman utilize his arm a little bit more? That’s a question for the Gators’ OC himself. Despite being a game that at times seemed unwatchable, Franks and receiver Tyrie Cleveland made up for it with their unpredictable, yet stunning final play.

  • Mississippi State has brought some new competition to the SEC West. Dan Mullen had all the ingredients for an upset win against the LSU Tigers. The question was could they execute? The Bulldogs shut out the Tigers during the second half and finished the game 37-7. Not many expected a dominating, 30 point rout for Mississippi State over the Tigers.

  • Alabama and Clemson…then everyone else. Although it has only been 3 weeks since the start of this year’s college football season, it’s obvious who is leading the pack. Both Alabama and Clemson look just as good as last year, if not better. Who knows, maybe we will see a rematch of last year’s National Title game.
