2011 As 1981: Week Three

Week One
Week Two

We move to Week Three of Alternate 2011 ... after a couple more of these, I'll start posting full standings as well. But this will do for now.

College Gameday Location: Lincoln.

Boise State-Oregon is the biggest game of a week that features three ranked-vs-ranked games, but do you really see Gameday missing the opportunity to go to Florida State-Nebraska? I think not.

RANKED VS RANKED
No. 3 Oregon 34, No. 5 Boise State 32 (in Eugene)
No. 10 Nebraska 27, No. 4 Florida State 25 (in Lincoln)
No. 15 Michigan State 10, No. 16 Ohio State 7 (in Columbus)

The home team wins in each of the two biggest games of the week, with Oregon holding off a Boise State team playing at its best and a slightly overrated Nebraska team taking out an overrated Florida State team. But in week three, we don't exactly know who's overrated, do we?

MAJOR CONFERENCE VS MAJOR CONFERENCE
No. 1 LSU 29, Oregon State 11 (in Baton Rouge)
No. 6 Alabama 39, Kentucky 15 (in Lexington)
No. 7 Texas A&M 34, Boston College 21 (in College Station)
No. 11 South Carolina 34, Duke 21 (in Columbia)
No. 12 Wisconsin 44, UCLA 19 (in Madison)
No. 14 Georgia 32, Clemson 16 (in Clemson)
No. 17 Mississippi State 24, Vanderbilt 21 (in Starkville)
No. 18 Auburn 29, Wake Forest 17 (in Auburn)
Georgia Tech 38, No. 20 Florida (in Gainesville)
Michigan 35, No. 21 Notre Dame 31 (in Ann Arbor)
No. 23 West Virginia 37, Maryland 31 (in College Park)
No. 24 Arkansas 30, Northwestern 27 (in Little Rock)
California 28, Arizona 10 (in Berkeley)
Cincinnati 26, Pittsburgh 23 (in Pittsburgh)
Illinois 30, Syracuse 24 (in Champaign)
Iowa State 44, Iowa 41 (in Ames)
Kansas State 36, Washington 35 (in Seattle)
Purdue 42, Minnesota 21 (in Minneapolis)
USC 39, Indiana 30 (in Bloomington)
Virginia 27, Rutgers 25 (in East Rutherford)
Washington State 31, Colorado 27 (in Boulder)

LSU continues to plow through major conference teams, while No. 2 Oklahoma goes through Bye Week No. 2. The most interesting results are in bold -- Georgia Tech follows up a strong showing versus Alabama with an "upset" of Florida, Michigan still takes out Notre Dame late into the evening, Arkansas continues its slow start with a near-miss against Northwestern, and even when those cold, impersonal numbers are involved, K-State figures out how to win close games.
