College football picks, schedule: Predictions against the spread, odds for top 25 games in Week 3
Following the chaos last week that effectively turned the 2022 college football season on its head, top-25 teams who are big favorites in Week 3 will perhaps be a little more cautious Saturday.Most notable Saturday is the nightcap as No. 13 Miami visits No. 24 Texas A&M with the Aggies fresh off one of those aforementioned upset losses to Appalachian State.The Storms are hoping to flex under first-year mentor Mario Cristobal, while Aggies mentor Jimbo Fisher is planning to hold his seat back from turning out to be excessively hot. Talking about Cristobal, his previous group is highlighted in that other top 25 confrontation as No. 25 Oregon has No. 12 BYU. The Cougars are feeling themselves after a gigantic home win over Baylor, while the Ducks are as yet expecting to return from an unpleasant appearance against Georgia in Week 1.
Also on the slate are No. 6 Oklahoma welcoming rival Nebraska fresh off the Cornhuskers’ firing of coach Scott Frost, newly minted No. 1 Georgia visiting SEC East rival South Carolina and Auburn welcoming a tough nonconference test from No. 22 Penn State in the featured game on CBS. In other words, there will be no shortage of storylines to chew on before Saturday is out.
Make certain to stay with CBS Sports over the course of the day for school football inclusion from the initial opening shot ahead. We should investigate our master picks for the best games in Week 3.
Noon | Fox, fuboTV (Try for free) — Oklahoma has not faced a Power Five foe under new coach Brent Venables. In fact, its two wins were against teams ranked No. 95 and No. 108 in the CBS Sports 131 Rankings. While Nebraska is struggling, the talent jump — along with a new coaching direction — makes this game slightly trickier than early results would assume.A more regrettable Nebraska group played a superior Oklahoma group inside seven focuses last season. With the game being held in Lincoln, Nebraska, don’t anticipate that things should go crazy.
