College Football 2003 Week Three - September 11-13
After a ton of exciting action in Week Two that included Miami's come-from-behind win over Florida and Notre Dame's thrilling comeback victory in overtime against Washington State, there are plenty of top matchups around the country this weekend. There is one game each on Thursday and Friday evening on ESPN, the first a PAC 10/Mountain West battle between Cal and Utah, and the second a MAC showdown between Toledo and Marshall.
Saturday's action kicks off with College GameDay on ESPN at 9:30 AM CDT before the full slate of games kicks off at 11:00 AM CDT.
