College Football 2023: 5 Headlines To Follow Entering Week 3

BOULDER, CO -10 MAY 2019- View of the Folsom Field football stadium on the college campus of the University of Colorado Boulder (CU Boulder).


Week 2 of the college football season brought a little meat to a party that felt like it was being thrown by a vegetarian after Week 1. Week 2 brought matchups that felt more important compared to seeing Goliath Tech vs. Cupcake State.

As fans prepare for Week 3, certain teams and college football media members need to be brought to the spotlight.

Here are five headlines to follow before the start of Week 3 in the college football season.

5. RG3 Is Must See TV

College football as a product has long seen success when the companies running the production give fans actual personalities on their screen. ESPN is home to the king of the sport in Lee Corso, as well as the new face of everything, Pat McAfee. N

ow, the company has a star calling the games in Robert Griffin III.

RG3 has already split his pants and made a joke about Kyle Lowry being thicc, and most teams haven’t even played three games.

Give us more Griffin, please.

4. Pac-12 DominanceΒ 

In what is the final year of the Pac-12 that we have all come to know and love, the conference is looking to leave on a high note.

The Pac-12 currently owns the best overall record in the 2023 season against Power 5 opponents. A conference that has been pulled apart by dollar signs is now showing that it actually can be competitive once again.

Maybe one day, fans can watch a restructured Pac-12 on ESPN++++ West Coast Division for $36.99 per month and think back to a simpler time.

3. Jimbo Looking Donezo?

Even when Jimbo Fisher took over the Texas A&M program, it felt like a step down from a program like Florida State that had been in national relevancy more often than the Aggies.

Now, six years later, the Aggies are still mid, and the Seminoles are looking like a top 10 program.

Fisher’s guaranteed 10-year, nearly one hundred million dollar contract isn’t looking like the investment that A&M was hoping for, but taking care of an inferior program this week could save Jimbo another week.

2. Colorado Is Set For Prime Time

The start of Deion Sanders’s tenure as head coach of Colorado could not have started any sweeter. A massive upset over TCU in week one, followed by a week two victory over hated rival Nebraska, the Buffaloes are already enjoying the cherry on top of a sundae that no one expected to be made this early.

The Buffaloes have the pleasure of hosting ESPN’s College GameDay this weekend before their matchup with Colorado State.

The Prime Time era is exploding, and we’re not even close to its heights.

1. They’re Actually Back

One of the longest-running jokes on college football social media is the fake reclaiming that the Texas football program is “back.”

The Longhorns went to Tuscaloosa this past Saturday and proved, without a doubt, that they are a better program than Alabama currently. However, sometimes, a team has a difficult time following such a dominant performance.

Texas can’t allow a victory hangover to occur when they meet Wyoming this weekend, a team that already owns a Power 5 victory over Texas Tech.
