College Football Picks: Expert Predictions for Every Game in Week 3

Week 3 of the 2017 college football season features a couple of key non-conference matchups and league showdowns among top 25 teams, and Athlon Sports is ready with complete predictions, preview and picks for the third weekend of action. The Week 3 slate doesn't quite have the overall high-profile matchups from last weekend's action, but Saturday night's ACC showdown between Louisville and Clemson is a must-see contest. Additionally, San Diego State hopes to knock off another Pac-12 opponent with Stanford up next, Tennessee takes on Florida in a key SEC East matchup, Texas travels to USC, and Mississippi State hosts LSU to round out some of the weekend's top games. The Week 3 schedule kicks off on Thursday night with New Mexico taking on Boise State, followed by three games on Friday, including Illinois at USF.
