The Week 3 schedule included two top-15 showdowns: No. 4 Ohio State met No. 15 TCU in Arlington, Texas at the neutral AT&T Stadium and No. 7 Auburn hosted division rival No. 12 LSU. With the dust mostly settled, one thing is for sure – the top three is safe.

No. 1 Alabama blew out Ole Miss 62-7 on the road in Oxford. No. 2 Clemson took care of business against Georgia Southern, winning 38-7. Similarly, No. 3 Georgia handled Middle Tennessee State 49-7.

Ohio State ran into some trouble against TCU trailing 13-14 at the half and 13-21 in the third quarter. The Buckeyes rallied and roared back strong, appearing to flip a switch and suddenly look like the No. 4 team. OSU began to control the game in the fourth quarter.

Wisconsin entered Saturday ranked No. 6, but will fall after losing to unranked BYU 21-24 at home.

Auburn was No. 7, but will drop some after losing to No. 12 LSU at home. Since Auburn has a top-10 win on its resume, Gus Malzahn’s squad may not fall too far.

In the Week 3 poll, Utah, Texas A&M and Boston College were the top three unranked vote-getters. With Boise State and USC likely to drop out of the rankings, look for the Aggies (2-1) and Eagles (3-0) to grab the two open spots. BYU will likely receive some votes, but the 2-1 Cougars were previously off the radar entirely.
