College Football Week 13 -Rivalry Week

UPSET WATCH- Teams that could get upset

Iowa over Nebraska
The Hawkeyes host the Huskers in the new Corn Bowl Rivalry. Iowa is still riding high with the upset win over Michigan. Expect a defensive battle where whoever makes more plays on defense wins. The home crowd will be loud with their A-I-O-W chant. Which defense makes more plays?

Arizona over Arizona State
The Duel in the Desert. Both teams on losing streaks. ASU has lost 5 in a row and Arizona has lost 8 in a row. The Sun Devils have a chance to become bowl eligible and to keep the Wildcats winless in conference play. The Wildcats can prevent the Sun Devils from a .500 season and bowl eligibility. Who will be more motivated to claim the Territorial Cup?

Vanderbilt over Tennessee
The Commodores are coming off a big road win over Ole Miss and have a chance to win bragging rights of the state of Tennessee. The Vols seemed to find things offensively last week against Missouri. Vanderbilt can become bowl eligible with a win. Commodores or Volunteers? Will Tennessee start strong? Does the Vanderbilt defense shut down the Volunteer offense?

New Mexico over Wyoming
The Lobos are 1 game behind the Cowboys and the Broncos. Wyoming can win the Mountain division over Boise State with a win. The pressure is on the Cowboys who travel to Albuquerque. New Mexico, with a win can also create a three way tie in first if Boise State loses to Air Force. Can the Cowboys survive the road challenge?

Iowa State over West Virginia
The Cyclones finally had a breakout performance last weekend against Texas Tech. Will the Cyclones be twisting strong in Morgantown? West Virginia was eliminated from the Big 12 Championship race last week. Will they be motivated against a suddenly red hot Iowa State team?
