SALT LAKE CITY — If the previous two weeks taught us anything, Week 3 should be another fun weekend of college football. There's no shortage of great games this week.

And with the games comes the KSL.com College Football Pick'em, which is back for another season. If you've already signed up then you know the drill; if not, this is an opportunity to guess the score for five games each week to see if you're the closest.

It's a chance to follow the three FBS teams in the state as well as a few national teams. It's also an opportunity for bragging rights ... and maybe a gift card, too.

Last week, only five participants went a perfect 5-0 in their picks. Will we see more chaos in the games or will there be a little more consistency with the favored teams winning every game?

We vote chaos!

Each week's first-, second- and third-place winners will get a $100, $70 and $30 Visa gift card, respectively, courtesy of Goldenwest Credit Union. The overall winners of Pick'em will receive a $500 gift card for first place, a $250 gift card for second place and a $100 gift card for third place.

Each week, we'll release the KSL.com sports staff picks for you to see. Can you do a better job than us? Probably, but that's the fun of it all.

This week's games are as follows:

  • No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 11 Florida (Sept. 18, 1:30 p.m MT, CBS)
  • Utah vs. San Diego State (Sept. 18, 5 p.m. MT, CBSSN)
  • No. 22 Auburn vs. No. 10 Penn State (Sept. 18, 5:30 p.m. MT, ABC)
  • Utah State vs. Air Force (Sept. 18, 5:30 p.m. MT, FS2)
  • No. 19 Arizona State vs. No. 23 BYU (Sept. 18, 8:15 p.m. MT, ESPN)

So head on over to KSL.com Pick'em and fill out your weekly ballot.
