Week 3’s slate took center stage, with Vegas moving swiftly to set the line for next weekend’s marquee matchup. After a chaotic second week of college football, the oddsmakers are taking a break from work trying to cut through all the noise.

Week 3 has two ranked matches, with No. 13 Miami facing the first Test against No. 24 Texas A&M and No. 12 BYU looking to move 3-0 against No. 25 Oregon. is. But No. 1 Georgia also Spencer he puts up an interesting battle with Rattler and South Carolina, while No. 6 Oklahoma moves to Nebraska. Scott Frost firing.

Elsewhere, many teams that have experienced upsets have a chance to bounce back with a big line to cover. No. 17 Baylor will host Texas State on the line clearing his 30 points, while No. 14 Utah will face his FBS opponent for the first time since losing to Florida in the opener. No. 23 Pittsburgh travels to face West Michigan after losing to Tennessee. Meanwhile, No. 22 Penn State wants to close its doors to Auburn.

Below are the odds provided by Caesars Sportsbook and some of the biggest spreads to watch for week 3.

6. Oklahoma (-15) Nebraska: This has got to be one of the wackiest games of the weekend. The Cornhuskers have just fired their coach and are welcoming rival Sooners to his program (Brent his Venables), who have just hired from the outside for the first time since 1999. A longtime rival at Lincoln since 2009, when Venables was still the Sooners’ defensive coordinator. This matchup between his two teams at Norman last season was decided by just seven points.

No. 12 BYU (+3.5) No. 25 Oregon: The Cougars are fresh off a signing win over Baylor, but this week’s trip to Oregon hasn’t calmed things down. Underdogs BYU will have the best of the weekend if the Cougars pair receivers Puka Naqua and Gunner Romney back with quarterback Jalen Hall. It could be a value play.

No. 11 Washington, Michigan (PK): It ranks among my most bedridden non-conference games of the season, and Washington’s early performance is intriguing. In week 2 we noticed their groove rushing the ball against Akron. The Indiana transferring quarterback has scored 682 passing yards and his six touchdowns in his first two games. Huskies can win this game and make a national statement.

No. 13 Miami (+6.5) No. 24 Texas A&M: Neither of these teams looked good against their Sun Belt opponents last weekend, but the Hurricanes pulled away against the Southern Miss. Meanwhile, the Aggies suffered one of his worst losses in program history to Appalachia State. Texas A&M hasn’t produced a sustained offense in his first two games, including 186 total yards against the Mountaineers. Hurricane isn’t perfect, but it can get the ball moving. The Aggies get too much respect from Vegas.

Fresno State (+14) No. 7 USC: The Trojan Horse is one of the biggest buzzwords in college football thanks to the arrival of Lincoln Riley, but Fresno State is the big killer. The Bulldogs dominated Oregon State last season, and he defeated both UCLA and San Diego State in thrilling games. USC’s early return is off the charts after he took a 35-14 halftime lead away from Stanford in a 41-28 victory. However, Bulldog is a much more difficult test. This is a long queue.
