Week 3 preview
Ready for a busy Week 3? Here's a complete look at all the biggest games.
But some games stand out more than others:
It might be time for another classic between these two. In the last two meetings, UGA led for much of the game before 'Bama rallied to stun the Bulldogs (CFP title game in the 2017 season and then the 2018 SEC Championship Game). It's also possible this is only the first showdown this season — the two could meet again in Atlanta as division champs in the SEC title game.
A year after Boise State shocked FSU with a 36-31 comeback from down 18 points, the Seminoles now have to play on the Blue Turf. The Broncos will again be expected to be one of the top Group of Five team this season, so a nonconference win against Florida State will stand out on the resume should Boise State win again.
