College football schedule, games 2022: What to watch in Week 3, TV channels, Saturday kickoff times

Week 3 of the 2022 college football season is in full swing, and Saturday sees more than a few compelling matchups overwriting another wild week of action for fans. On CBS, No. 22 Penn State will be the first Big Ten team to play Auburn at Jordan-Hare Stadium when the two tee off Saturday afternoon. In this Big Ten-SEC showdown, the Tigers seek revenge at home after a 28-20 loss to the Nittany Lions at Happy Valley last season.

Elsewhere, Oklahoma No. 6 will rekindle its rivalry with Nebraska and Miami No. 13 will travel to College Station, Texas to take on No. 24 Texas A&M. All sorts of chaos erupted during a wild Week 2 this past weekend, including at College Station, where Appalachian State outplayed the Aggies in a stunning upset.

Saturday’s drama should be in abundance, and below we’ve provided a handy viewer’s guide to help you navigate all the action. All times east.

The best games

No. 6 Oklahoma in Nebraska – Noon on Fox, fuboTV (Try it for free): Mickey Joseph will lead the Cornhuskers out of the tunnel and into the post-Scott Frost era after the legendary former Cornhuskers quarterback was fired on Sunday. He’ll see old Big 12 rivals Oklahoma on the other sidelines, and there’s no doubt that a win over one of the most enduring programs of the last decade would ease tensions at Lincoln.

No. 24 Penn State in Auburn — 3:30 p.m. on CBS,, CBS Sports App (Free): This is a crucial game for an Auburn team that not only struggled against San Jose State last weekend but has a coach in Bryan Harsin who almost got fired in February. This could be a linchpin for aligning the program against a Nittany Lions team that would like to make a big statement in SEC country.

#12 BYU in #25 Oregon — 3:30 p.m. on Fox, fuboTV (Try it for free): The college football world seemingly wrote the Ducks off after they were smoked by Georgia in Week 1, but freshman coach Dan Lanning erased that disappointment with a win over a Cougars team Baylor starred in last week’s thriller won two overtime hours. If you haven’t watched Cougars quarterback Jaren Hall film, watch him.

No. 11 Michigan State in Washington – 7:30 p.m. on ABC, fuboTV (Try it for free): The Huskies lead the Pac-12 in passing, and the Spartans’ passing defense was their Achilles’ heel despite beating Pittsburgh in the Peach Bowl last year. We will know a lot about both teams after we should have a fun atmosphere at Husky Stadium.

No. 13 Miami at No. 24 Texas A&M – 9 p.m. on ESPN, fuboTV (Try it for free): This game was already dripping with intrigue due to the Aggies’ desperation after losing to Appalachian State last week, and the Hurricanes could make a statement with a win in SEC-land. Coach Jimbo Fisher has reportedly made a quarterback move from Haynes King to Max Johnson, fueling interest even further.
