CHAD PELTIER was raised in Georgia by Ohio State Buckeye parents. He graduated from the University of Georgia where he developed a love for Athens, a respect for “Run the damn ball, Bobo!”, and serious confusion over how to feel about Urban Meyer. In addition to writing biweekly college football columns for Football Outsiders, he also contributes to the SB Nation blogs Football Study Hall and Land Grant Holy Land. He currently lives in New Haven, Connecticut, but misses SEC country.
While mostly inconsequential for the top playoff contenders, Week 3 was pretty strange the deeper you get into each conference. There were two groups of teams -- impressive teams that underwhelmed, and (probably) bad teams that scored surprising wins.

The Tennessee Volunteers, favored more than three touchdowns, lost at home to Georgia State. Missouri and South Carolina were also upset. Is the Southeastern Conference no longer the best in the nation?

Even though Alabama was more efficient on a per play basis, Clemson stalled Alabama's drives in the red zone, converted third downs, and made more explosive plays to create a game that looks lopsided on the scoreboard.

It seemed etched in stone that Alabama and Clemson, the preseason two top teams in the F/+ projections, would meet in the national title game following dominant wins over Oklahoma and Notre Dame in the semifinals. But there's still a lot to enjoy about that upcoming game (including Tigers receiver Justyn Ross), and the season as a whole.
