I heard a joke on the radio today that made me giggle.

Q: How many batteries does it take to shock a Michigan Wolverine?

A: 1 AA.

Hardee har har.

With that joke, I’m laughing all the way up to this week’s matchup of defeated powerhouses Michigan and Notre Dame. But more on that game later.

This Saturday will tell us a lot more about the college football landscape. It will weed out the pretenders from the contenders to borrow a line from ESPN. Here are the intriguing games of Week 3.

#10 Ohio State vs Washington. Are the Washington Huskies as dominant as they seem? They beat a wretched Syracuse team on the road in week 1 and a Boise State team that’s a shell of their former selves at home last week. The Ohio State Buckeyes have also beaten opponents that were far inferior. They also have a 15-game winning streak of unranked opponents.

I smell all the makings of an upset here. Husky redshirt freshman quarterback Jake Locker carries himself like a senior and is clearly making a case for Washington to be a football powerhouse once again. Although the Buckeyes boast the nation’s best defense, something inside me thinks the Husky spread offense can handle the barrage. Washington over Ohio St. 31-28.
