M+ J's College Football Week 13 Upset Watch/Picks

UPSET WATCH

Virginia Tech over Virginia
The Hokies need this one to keep their bowl hopes alive. It is a rivalry game, so anything can happen here.

Florida State over Florida
Florida has been inconsistent and Florida State hasn't been great. With a win, the Seminoles continue their bowl streak. However, the Gators have a chance to be the ones that end it.

Miami (FL) over Pittsburgh
Pitt has been doing well lately and has not lost in a while. A trip to Miami could be a trap as Pitt looks on to next week's ACC Championship game.

West Virginia over Oklahoma

West Virginia is at home in this showdown, and the Sooners seem like they are bound to be beaten again this season.
North Carolina over NC State
NC State has shown to not be as good as their record. Maybe, the Tar Heels will prove this and pull the upset.

M+ J's College Football Week 12 Upset Watch/Picks

UPSET WATCH

Nebraska over Michigan State
Nebraska is playing better and a vulnerable Spartans team is coming to town. This sounds like an upset..

Wake Forest over Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh has been good lately and leads the Coastal division. This looks like a trap game where Wake can be the spoiler. In the Coastal Division, anything can happen.

Syracuse over Notre Dame
Syracuse almost won at Clemson, so they definitely could win this neutral field meeting. The Irish are playing for the playoffs. Can the Orange ruin this for the Irish?

UCLA over USC

USC has lost consecutive home games and now travels a short distance to their arch rival. The pressure is on for Clay and a loss could seal his fate. 
Florida State over Boston College
The Seminoles need this one to keep their bowl hopes alive. Maybe, they will have enough today to pull the upset.

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.
