FOX Sports South's college football writers and guests offer a weekly preview of the upcoming slate. Here is the Week 3 preview, featuring the highly-touted Alabama-Texas A&M showdown: Five Matchups to Watch Alabama at Texas A&M: Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide have been looking forward to this matchup ever since the Aggies walked out of Tuscaloosa with a 29-24 win last season. Can Johnny Manziel & Co., pull it off at Kyle Field? UCLA at Nebraska: Last season, this was an offensive slugfest serving as Bruins QB Brett Hundley's signature performance. Can the star sophomore do it again in Lincoln? Ole Miss at Texas: Hugh Freeze's spread offense heads to Austin to face a team that just replaced its defensive coordinator midseason. Does that spell trouble for the Longhorns? Tennessee at Oregon: Does Butch Jones' team really stand a chance against the most explosive offense in the country? Kentucky at Louisville: Will Teddy Bridgewater's Heisman campaign continue to roll against the Cardinals' instate rivals? Star Watch T.J. Yeldon, Alabama: Can the super sophomore tailback take over the biggest game of the season to date? Braxton Miller, Ohio State: Is the preseason Heisman favorite on his last leg? Michigan State's defense: Though not an individual player, can the Spartans' D continue to carry an anemic offense? Upset Watch -- Does No. 19 Washington have a problem on its hands with 2-0 Illinois? -- Can Arizona State pull off the home upset over the new-look Wisconsin Badgers? -- Back in Columbus, is there any reason to believe Sonny Dykes can find success against the No. 4-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes?
