College football is finally starting to heat up and we are here for it. The SEC will finally kick off in week 4 so now is the time to start doing your research and getting ready to find some winners. Remember you can always find winners withBetQL’s college football picks, but before we get started with week 4 we wanted to look back at some of our favorite games from week 3. Take a look at our recaps below and start getting ready for the biggest week of the year.
Louisiana 34, Georgia State, 31 Overtime
It’s safe to say that the Ragin’ Cajuns spent most of the week basking in the glory of last week’s upset win over Iowa State because they came out a little flat. Georgia State took full advantage by taking an early lead, ultimately leading 21-7 midway through the third quarter. However, Louisiana eventually started to hit on some big plays, scoring 21 unanswered points to take a 28-21 lead before the Panthers struck back to force overtime. After Georgia State got a field goal, Elijah Mitchell ran in the game-scoring touchdown from 12 yards out. That run was Mitchell’s second of the day and gave him 164 yards on 16 carries. Levi Lewis also threw for 279 yards and two touchdowns, overcoming a couple of interceptions to keep the Ragin’ Cajuns undefeated ahead of next week’s home opener with Georgia Southern while a showdown with Appalachian State lurks in two weeks.

Oklahoma State 16, Tulsa 7
This was not the game the Cowboys envisioned for their season opener given OSU’s high expectations this year. The Oklahoma State offense got nothing going for much of the first half and then saw quarterback Spencer Sanders leave with an injury. When backup Ethan Bullock was ineffective, the Cowboys turned to true freshman Shane Illingworth. He turned out to be just what Oklahoma State needed, leading the Cowboys on a drive that ended with a Chuba Hubbard touchdown. Of course, the Oklahoma State defense was the real hero of the day, shutting down the Tulsa offense for most of the day. With a couple of late field goals, the Cowboys managed to survive an ugly game before next week’s Big 12 opener against West Virginia.
Notre Dame 52, South Florida 0
This game more or less went according to plan for Notre Dame. One week after struggling to put away The Citadel, South Florida continued to look like a team that struggled against The Citadel. The Fighting Irish were dominant from the start, quickly taking a 14-0 lead and ultimately leading 35-0 at halftime. Ian Book threw the ball just 19 times but had no passing touchdowns. However, Book found the end zone in three of his four carries. Outside of a blocked punt that Notre Dame turned into a touchdown, all six Fighting Irish touchdowns came on the ground. It was a complete effort for Notre Dame, who hits the road for the first time next week to play Wake Forest.
