It's the college football off-season and we are taking a look back at the 2013 season. Earlier, we took a trip down memory lane as we relived weeks one and two. Now, let's go back in our time machine and remember what happened in the third week of the 2013 college football season….

UCLA 41 Nebraska 21

Playing on the road, Jim Mora and his Bruins fell down 18 points but then dominated the Huskers in the second half as they outscored them 31-0 for a huge come from behind win.


Ole Miss 44 Texas 23

This was a defining game for Texas and the end of the Mack Brown era. After taking it on the chin at BYU in week two, the Longhorns came home and got destroyed by Ole Miss. The Rebels outscored the Horns 27-0 in the second half and moved to 3-0 on the season, while the Horns fell to 1-2.

Alabama 49 Texas A&M 42

This was the re-match from what some called the "Game of the Year" in 2012. After a back and forth game early, Bama cruised in the middle portion of the game and withstood a furious comeback from A&M late in the game….

Vinnie Sunseri intercepted the ball and took it back for a TD to give the Tide a 21 point third quarter lead…
