Erin Andrews' Week 3 thoughts

Erin Andrews (@ErinAndrews) shares her thoughts on what she is most looking forward to in Week 3:

USC’s first real test

And you can see it on FOX! With the status of injured USC center Khaled Holmes up in the air, how much will that affect the Trojans’ passing game? The big key here is how Matt Barkley responds to the Stanford defense at The Farm.

Notre Dame-Michigan State at night


While these two teams don’t dislike each other the way Notre Dame and its other rivals do, make no mistake, East Lansing will be rocking. I’m curious to see how QB Everett Golson responds after being replaced by Tommy Rees during the final drive last week vs. Purdue. Irish coach Brian Kelly says its Golson’s job, but will the freshman look over his shoulder?

Tennessee-Florida means something again

With the Volunteers ranked in the AP poll for the first time since 2008, this great rivalry is finally important again. But just how close is Tennessee to being "back?" This game should tell us plenty. The SEC East has missed this as a big matchup — and it’s good to have it back.

Song of the week

‘Let it roll’ by Flo Rida
— It’s been on repeat, all week long.
