COLLEGE FOOTBALL SELECTIONS (WEEK 3)



Ourlads’ Football Network host Greg DePalma and Athlon managing editor Mitch Light get together each Thursday to analyze top matchups on the week’s college football schedule and make predictions. Catch OFN College Weekly for their full exchange.

* denotes featured play

No.4 OHIO ST. (2-0) at No.15 TCU (2-0)

Kickoff: 8 p.m. Site: AT&T Stadium, Arlington, Texas

TV: ABC. Line: Ohio State by 12.

Greg: Tossup. Mitch: *Ohio St.

Mitch says: “I just think Ohio State is going to roll offensively, which is saying a lot against a Gary Patterson defense. I wouldn’t be as confident if the game were in Fort Worth, but I think Jerry World is so big, Ohio State is going to have at least 20,000 fans there.”


No.17 BOISE ST. (2-0) at No.24 OKLAHOMA ST. (2-0)

Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. Site: Boone Pickens Stadium, Stillwater, Okla.

TV: ESPN. Line: Oklahoma State by 3.

Greg: *Boise St. Mitch: Boise St.

Greg says: “This is (Bryan) Harsin’s best team without a doubt. I really like what I’ve seen from Boise State last year and from what I’ve seen so far from them this year. … Mason Rudolph’s gone (at OSU) and that is a big loss. It hasn’t shown yet, but it’s going to show in this game.”


No.22 USC (1-1) at TEXAS (1-1)

Kickoff: 8 p.m. Site: Texas Memorial Stadium, Austin, Texas

TV: FOX. Line: Texas by 3.

Greg: Texas. Mitch: Stay away.

Mitch says: “I’ve been saying I don’t want to watch it, but I want to know what happens. I’ll look at the box score and be happy to watch some highlights. But nothing from these two teams, other than the fact that they’re national brands, makes this appointment viewing.”


No.12 LSU (2-0) at No.7 AUBURN (2-0)

Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. Site: Jordan-Hare Stadium, Auburn, Ala.

TV: CBS. Line: Auburn by 9.

Greg: *Auburn. Mitch: Auburn.

Mitch says: “Auburn last year was maybe the best home team in the country. They beat Georgia, they beat Alabama, they beat some great teams at home. I know each year’s a different team and all that, but if they can continue that, I think they win this game and cover as well.”
