College football enters Week 3 at a crossroads. Last week, some of the top teams rolled over cupcakes while others struggled to lock down a win. Oregon and Iowa surged up the rankings while Ohio State and Iowa State tumbled. Arkansas spanked soon-to-be SEC rival Texas while Notre Dame needed late heroics to stuff Toledo.
This means Week 3 is about opportunity. The teams knocked on their heels have an opportunity to show us that they've regrouped and are ready to fight. Those surprising teams have an opportunity to show they are for real. There are also all kinds of opportunities on the schedule for teams to break out and announce their arrival.
That means there are opportunities for players to shine this week, and here are 15 to watch.
