College football, Week 3: ESPN/ABC TV schedule

Week 3 of the college football season appears poised to be a great one, with the first top ten match up of the season between No. 2 Florida State and No. 10 Louisville highlighting the ESPN/ABC schedule.

Along with the Florida State vs. Louisville match up which will set the tone in the ACC, there are a number of important games across the nation as conference play kicks into full swing.

Opening up Week 3 on the ESPN family of networks is an AAC clash between No. 6 Houston and Cincinnati.

In Saturday’s nightcap, one of the pleasant surprises so far in 2016, the No. 11 Texas Longhorns, head to the West Coast for a meeting with an underwhelming California squad.
