2015 College Football Week 3 TV Schedule

What's on TV this week in college football?

John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

This post is a day earlier than normal, but that just gives you more time to prepare for the gloriousness that is college football. There wasn't much in the way of Thursday viewing last week thanks to the NFL. That changes a bit, this week.

Auburn's Week 1 opponent will be the prime time ESPN match up as Clemson travels to Louisville to take on the Cardinals. While that's the only Thursday night game, at least it's an interesting one.

Friday sees Florida State travel to Boston College, where Steve Addazio's team has been doing fairly well, albeit against two weaker teams. If you stay up late and want to watch a likely slaughter, New Mexico is playing at Arizona State at 10pm EST.

Saturday's slate sees us with some intriguing games. Air Force travels to #4 Michigan State for what's probably the best of the noon slate. That game will be on ABC. If you get the PAC 12 Network and are a fan of watching Oregon run up the score then without a doubt you need to watch Georgia State take on Oregon at 2pm EST. I don't even want to think of what the score to that one will end up at.

I know what you'll be watching at 3:30 EST, as Auburn takes on LSU, but if you're wanting to flip the channels during commercials there are some intriguing match-ups. #1 Ohio State takes on a tough MAC opponent in Northern Illinois on ABC or ESPN2. Then there's Georgia Tech at Notre Dame at 3:30pm on NBC. That game has potential to get ugly. I've spoken of it elsewhere, but Paul Johnson has been waiting since 2006 to face Brian VanGorder on the football field. He didn't take too kindly to some comments made by BVG about the triple option when BVG took the Georgia Southern job. If he gets the chance, I don't think he will let his foot off the gas. It could go the other way, of course, but it has potential to be a lot of fun if you like watching the triple option.

Miami and Nebraska are playing at 3:30pm EST, too, and no one really cares. I don't even know what college football is, anymore.

In the evening slate, South Carolina and the Head Ball Coach travel to Athens to take on Georgia on ESPN at 6pm EST. South Carolina struggling? Check. Questions about the HBC's future? Check. Playing AT Georgia? Check. Take the Gamecocks big. That just seems to be the way this one works out.

For the later games, there doesn't appear to be a whole lot that's very interesting until you get to the Ole Miss / Alabama game. That one begins at 9:15pm EST on ESPN. Wow, that's a late game. BYU at UCLA could be an interesting game, as well. That one is on FoxSports1 at 10:30pm EST.
