College Football Week 9

UPSET WATCH- Teams that could get upset

Oklahoma State over West Virginia
Oklahoma State has a controversial loss and without it would only have 1 loss. The Mountaineers come to town for a game that will be their most difficult of the season so far. This could be a trap for West Virginia.

Oregon over Arizona State
The Ducks are a win away from winning every game against the Sun Devils for an entire decade. Arizona State always struggles on the road, and Oregon is looking to win their first Pac-12 game. It feels like the Ducks dominance could continue here.

Iowa State over Kansas State
Iowa State almost beat Baylor when the Bears came to town. Kansas State is not as good as Baylor which is why an upset is possible here.

Texas over Baylor
Charlie Strong needs a big win. They came very close against Oklahoma and at Kansas State. An undefeated Baylor team goes to town that seems ripe for an upset. For a 3-4 team, Texas has shown pretty well, so something could give for them here. Will this be the game that helps put Charlie Strong and the Longhorns on track?

Georgia over Florida
Georgia has struggled lately but has played a much tougher schedule than the Gators. Florida has looked very lackluster at times this year just like last season and seems bound to be upset at some point. The Bulldogs are looking to get back on track, and this rivalry game could the one that does.

Notre Dame over Miami(FL)
Miami(FL) has lost 3 in a row and now travel to Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish defense has been much improved lately. This could be the Irish's chance to finally get another win. The Hurricanes are in the middle of a collapse and seem to be in free fall with no signs of stopping.

Florida State over Clemson
Clemson has had 2 close calls where luck was on their side. The Seminoles are out for revenge from last year's loss. They get the Tigers at home this year, which could be a major road block for Dabo's boys.

Wisconsin over Nebraska
The Badgers barely lost to Michigan and Ohio State and have looked like a Top 10 team all year. Nebraska has not played anyone this good yet, and they have to go to Madison too. This seems like an obvious pick.
