Week three provided us with some upsets and thrills that we associate with college football. This past weekend number three provided us with some interesting scores and developments.

Exhibit A

This reporter just a week ago posed the question would Louisville in their first year be dominant in the ACC in their first year. The Cardinals had beaten my Hurricanes and just pulverized Murray St. Louisville had won seven straight road games and were traveling to Charlottesville to face Virginia (2-) who had their share of problems especially against ranked teams. Final score Virginia 23-Louisville 21.

Cardinals on the road this weekend to face respected BYU.

Exhibit B

USC (2-1) coming off a big win over PAC-12 rival Stanford traveled to Boston to face ACC Boston College who not beaten a ranked team since 2004. That streak is over as the Eagles stun the Trojans 37-31 rushing for 452 yards. Huh ? No one saw this coming as the Eagles threw five passes for the game !

Exhibit C

Not surprising Virginia Tech is involved in this scenario they are every year its just a matter of who it will be and when it will happen.

East Carolina quarterback Shane Carden (23-47-427yds.-4tds.) had his own private party inviting the Hokie secondary to attend.

Exhibit D

Don’t know how much of an upset you would call this but it was definitely a derailment in the Georgia Bulldog season as they took one on the chin to South Carolina 52-28. The Bulldogs had just beaten Clemson and the Gamecocks were still reeling from their beating at the hands of Texas A&M.
