Just in case you're new here I think it's funny that any time – exaggerating... kind of – a team is wearing all white uniforms their social media team has to say they're "iced out." Occasionally you'll see a nice stormtrooper reference, but that's becoming more rare. Here are Week Three's rankings:

7. Texas State

Really strong showing here for the Bobcats. Love that we're photoshopping Waco to look like it's located on the ice planet Hoth. Credit for fully committing to the icing with the white helmets. Stiff competition and lack of obnoxious emoji use sets them back in the seventh spot. Nothing to be ashamed of.

🧊 Rating: 3.5/5

6. Troy

Troy, I love the thought here. We're mixing emojis in the tweet which is always going to score big with the judges. I like that we're pulling these out for the big game with College GameDay in town. Really love that we went with a video here, just felt like the execution could have been better. What's the point of going with video for the uniform reveal if the video is going to be a strobe effect the entire time with heavy shadows over the jersey? Great foundation to build on, Trojans.

🧊 Rating: 3.75/5

5. Michigan State

Cold face emoji always scores big. Love that we're tagging an actual player on the team to showcase Mr. Mosley here. Not every team does that for some reason. The private jet is a nice touch but feels like we could have gotten a better angle. Roughly one million times better than the neon green home uniforms. Please never wear those again.

🧊 Rating: 4/5

4. Ole Miss

Fantastic presentation on this one. We've got the video with music by Jeezy for a game in Atlanta. By the way, horrendous scheduling for Georgia Tech this season but that's a topic for another day. Loving the smoke machine use. Again, cold face emoji is great. I admit this ranking is a little harsh. It really is a great effort. I just think we could have been more creative with the jersey here, Ole Miss. You can mix it up a little! No need to have the same look in different colors.

🧊 Rating: 4.25/5

3. Florida State

Not the best announcement it must be said. No emoji use seems like a huge oversight. But these all-white helmets really popped. I know it's probably a new social media team at FSU, but any time they don't completely embarrass themselves by tweeting out a picture of Martin Luther King Jr. wearing some Nike Vapor Jet receiver gloves it's a W in my eyes.

🧊 Rating: 4.5/5

2. UCONN

Alright Huskies! Great graphic. Loving the snowflake emojis to demonstrate white helmets, jerseys, and pants. Really nice job. You are going to get pummeled by Michigan, but at least you're going to look good.

🧊 Rating: 4.75/5

1. South Florida

The Week Three Iciest Team Award belongs to the South Florida Bulls. Just a phenomenal look here. The "WARNING" grabbed my attention like there was an actual emergency, but no, just a college football team uniform announcement. We've already said our judges can't get enough cold face emoji. Putting out the ice advisory for a game in Gainesville, Florida is a nice touch. We don't hand these ratings out often but...

🧊 Rating: 5/5
