With Georgia, Ohio State and Alabama looking like the clear top three in the country, Week 3 gave us some clues as to who could challenge that triumvirate atop the college football world.

In a change from previous seasons, the Pac-12 Conference is supplying a couple of candidates: No. 7 USC, which moved to 3-0 with a late-night rout of Fresno State; and No. 18 Washington, also 3-0 after thumping then-No. 11 Michigan State in Seattle.

There are more expected contenders, too: No. 4 Michigan, No. 5 Clemson and No. 6 Oklahoma have yet to be challenged. This week, Clemson has the toughest test with a trip to No. 21 Wake Forest. The Tigers are 7-point favorites at Caesars Sportsbook.

And in the SEC, could either Georgia or Alabama succumb before conference championship weekend? No. 8 Kentucky certainly is one candidate to rise up, and four others play one another this week: No. 10 Arkansas vs. No. 23 Texas A&M (-2½) in Arlington, Texas, and No. 11 Tennessee (-8½) hosting No. 20 Florida.

Here’s a complete schedule and list of the available Week 4 point spreads and over/under totals at Caesars Sportsbook:
