M+ J's College Football Week 11 Upset Watch/Picks

UPSET WATCH

Michigan State over Ohio State
Ohio State barely slithered by lowly Nebraska last week. Now, they head to East Lansing for a much tougher game against the Spartans.

Northwestern over Iowa
Northwestern has been good in conference, so as an underdog, an upset is definitely possible.

Texas Tech over Texas
Texas has not shown as well lately and now, they visit Lubbock to take on the Red Raiders. It seems like Texas Tech will take this one.

Boston College over Clemson

Clemson has got better throughout the season but has to go to Boston College where it will be cold. The Eagles have also been pretty good themselves. A possible trap for the Tigers? Maybe.
UMass over BYU
BYU has struggled on offense again this season especially lately. UMass is better than people think and can really score at time. The Cougars better watch it.

M+ J's College Football Week 10 Upset Watch/Picks

UPSET WATCH

Auburn over Texas A&M
This game is pretty even. Gus really needs it to show he is Auburn's guy. The war eagles are at home, so they the home crowd could help knock off a ranked opponent here.

Purdue over Iowa
Purdue has beat Ohio State and lost to Eastern Michigan this season at home. Iowa comes to town. If the Boilermakers that showed up against the Buckeyes play today, the Hawkeyes will be toast.

LSU over Alabama
If Alabama loses in the regular season, this game might be their only chance. The Crimson Tide have been dominant but really haven't played the greatest schedule. Their toughest game so far has been a home game with Texas A&M, which was 22 point win. Could LSU pull off this monumental upset?

Texas Tech over Oklahoma

Texas Tech is at home and the Sooners are coming to town. Oklahoma has not been too dominate, so an upset is possible.
Virginia Tech over Boston College
The Hokies were bad last week against Georgia Tech, so they will be out to get back on track. A vulnerable ranked Boston College team comes to Blacksburg.

M+ J's College Football Week 9 Upset Watch/Picks

UPSET WATCH

Houston over South Florida
South Florida struggled to stay unbeaten when lowly UConn came to town. A trip to Houston almost certainly feels like their first loss is coming.

Pittsburgh over Duke
Not much of an upset here, but Pitt has been trending slightly upward while the Fighting Coach K's have been falling. Maybe the Panthers defend their home field and take the W.

Old Dominion over Middle Tennessee
Old Dominion won an extremely odd fashion last week at Western Kentucky. Now, the Blue Raiders come to town. The Monarchs could ride this momentum into a 2 game winning streak.

Missouri over Kentucky
Kentucky has shown that they can struggle inferior opponents like last week when Vandy came in and took them to the wire. A road trip to a hungry Missouri team looking for their 1st SEC wins could be a trap for Kentucky.
Syracuse over NC State
Syracuse has shown to be better this season, so an upset here seems obvious.

Mississippi State over Texas A&M
Texas A&M is on the road here and they are not as good as the other ranked SEC teams. An upset should also be an obvious one.

San Jose State over UNLV
Can the Spartans get their first win? After taking San Diego State to the wire on the road, UNLV comes in without a MWC win. This might be the day, San Jose State wins a game.

M+ J's College Football Week 8 Upset Watch/Picks

UPSET WATCH

Temple over Cincinnati
After starting 0-2, Temple has won 4 of 5. The Bearcats take their ranking and undefeated season to Temple, and this seems like a trap for them.

NC State over Clemson
Clemson has problems with Syracuse as shown the last two meetings. They also are usually challenged by the Wolfpack. NC State is a little better than the Orange, so maybe they can upset Clemson here.

Tulsa over Arkansas
Both teams have been bad. Tulsa almost upset Oklahoma and USF, so if the Razorbacks take them lightly, Tulsa might come out with a win here.

TCU over Oklahoma
TCU has under performed this season, but you can never count Gary Patterson out. Oklahoma is still trying to figure out their defense. The Horned Frogs may surprise the Sooners today.
Maryland over Iowa
Maryland is consistently one of the most random teams each season. They have beaten Texas and lost to Temple already this season. Therefore, anything is possible here. A blowout loss or even a blowout win is possible.

M+ J's College Football Week 7 Upset Watch/Picks

UPSET WATCH

South Carolina over Texas A&M
South Carolina hosts a ranked Texas A&M that found them in the Top 25 after a win over Kentucky. The Aggies have already lost twice, so they could get beat again.

North Carolina over Virginia Tech
Virginia Tech lost at Old Dominion, so they have shown they can struggle on the road even against weaker competition. Therefore, the Tar Heels could us this blue print to their advantage.

Virginia over Miami (FL)
Virginia is always unpredictable, so it is never a sure thing. However, being the underdog helps when you are, which is why an upset is possible.

USC over Colorado
USC is the favorite here, but Colorado is ranked. It would be an upset in terms of rank.

M+ J's College Football Week 6 Upset Watch/Picks

UPSET WATCH

Boston College over NC State
Boston College is pretty good this year. NC State is undefeated and in the Top 25. Will the nerves get to the Wolfpack?

Arizona State over Colorado
When you dissect Colorado's resume for an undefeated ranked team, it does not sound as good as it originally seemed since road victories over Nebraska and Colorado State are nothing special this season. The Sun Devils have played a tough schedule and are ready for this challenge.

Texas A&M over Kentucky
Texas A&M is at home and hosting a Kentucky team that has its highest ranking since 2007. The pressure is on here for the Wildcats where it seems a choke is possible.

Arizona over California
Not many potential upsets again this week, so this is potential minor one. Since Arizona is at home, a victory might happen over the golden bears.

M+ J's College Football Week 5 Upset Watch/Picks

UPSET WATCH

Syracuse over Clemson
Syracuse upset Clemson last season and are much improved this season. Clemson is not going to overlook them this time. However, the Tigers have shown some vulnerability so far.

Texas Tech over West Virginia
Texas Tech's high scoring offense has shown to be a more complete team than past years. West Virginia can score a lot too. This game should be high scoring and should come down to whoever plays better defense.

Penn State over Ohio State
A whiteout in Happy Valley is what the Buckeyes will be playing in front of. Many college football fans are hoping Penn State can pull it off. It happened last time Ohio State came to town.

Arizona over USC
This is the disappointment bowl. Arizona has looked better their last couple games, and BYU has shown to be a pretty good team. USC has been disappointing, and it could continue on the road today. However, Clay Helton teams tend to start slow and finish strong, so this could be when they begin to turn the corner.
