CFB Week 3: What Twitter Had To Say

The college football slate is now 3-0.

NCAA Football: Colorado State at Colorado Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Over the weekend, Penn State football improved to 3-0, and so did the college football slate.

A slew of rivalry games, close matchups, and lack of domination from many presumed powerhouse teams made for an exciting Saturday...and early Sunday morning.

First, let’s start with the main event: No. 18 Colorado 43 — Colorado State 35. This matchup lived up to and exceeded the hype, mostly thanks to the Rams punching above their pay grade. A College GameDay-fueled overtime thriller. What’s better than this?

The trend of dirty hits and bad blood continued in the swamp with Florida 29 — No. 11 Tennessee 16. After the Vols struggled with Austin Peay last week, it looks like the wheels are starting to come off. But, the 2-1 Gators are ranked now. That’s fun.

While the Backyard Brawl may have been the rivalry with the most traditionally bad blood on this week’s slate, West Virginia 17 — Pitt 6 didn’t feature much beyond ugly football. Our in-state friends played especially poorly. p.s. — ESP means “Eat Shit, Pitt”

The Crimson Tide are out of the Top 10 for the first time since the Christian Hackenberg era. While inclement weather played a factor, No. 10 Alabama 17 — South Florida 3 was a stinker all the way through.

Just when you thought Florida State had a chance to emerge as a clear No. 1, especially amid Georgia struggling with South Carolina, the Seminoles stumbled. No. 3 Florida State 31 — Boston College 29 featured a comeback effort by the Eagles that was just too late.

Let’s do it all again next week, shall we? Happy White Out week, folks.
