The Spun 2016 College Football Staff Picks: Week 3

The Spun staff makes its picks for College Football Week 3 games.

Last weekend didn't have a ton of hype heading into Saturday, but we still had some very fun games.

Central Michigan pulled off an amazing Hail Mary lateral-spawned upset of Oklahoma State that, as it turns out, shouldn't have happened. Doesn't mean it wasn't crazy to watch though.

Arkansas shook the September monkey off of its back with an overtime win at Big 12 power TCU.

Georgia came ridiculously close to losing to Nicholls. Nicholls!

It wasn't quite Week 1, but things pick up in a big way this weekend. Houston kicks things off on Thursday night, traveling to Cincinnati where it will attempt to keep its College Football Playoff hopes alive. College GameDay heads to Louisville for a huge ACC Atlantic battle between the Cardinals and Florida State Seminoles. Oklahoma will look to land a big non-conference win to offset its Houston loss, with Ohio State heading to Norman.

Make sure to get your errands done early on Saturday. There are great games all day long.

Here are our staff picks for every Power Five and Top 25 game for College Football Week 3.
