College Football Week 3 Early Slate Watch Guide: A Slugfest At Soldier Field

The early slate in the world of college football is headlined by what should be one of the grossest games of the year. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Wisconsin Badgers are headed to Chicago for a neutral site game at Wrigley Field that will pit two tough, physical, hard-nosed teams against one another. Elsewhere, the SEC’s headliner this week is a fun one, as the perpetually on the cusp of breaking out Texas A+M Aggies are on the way to Fayetteville for a matchup with one of the more surprising teams of the season thus far, Arkansas.
