M+ J's College Football Week 3 Upset Watch/Picks

It has been a crazy few weeks which caused a delay for our 1st post of the season. Good thing , the first couple weeks were pretty uneventful with predictable results for the most part. Will there finally be some surprises today?


Syracuse over Florida State
FSU almost lost to Samford last week after getting handled by Virginia Tech. This doesn't appear to be a very good Seminoles team this season. A trip to the Carrier Dome against Eric Dungey and Co. seems like an obvious choice for an upset.

Toledo over Miami (FL)
Miami started with an unimpressive opener against LSU and now have a potential trap game at Toledo, where the Rockets could cause fits for the Hurricanes.

North Texas over Arkansas
Arkansas fell to a 0-2 Colorado State last week showing that they could likely find themselves at the bottom of the SEC. An improved and undefeated North Texas team comes to town to try to turn the Hogs to ham on their home field.

Ohio over Virginia
Each year, Virginia is unpredictable, so it is hard to predict them being upset. However, the past shows that they have blown games like this before especially after losing to Indiana last week.

Wofford over Wyoming
There are not too many FCS vs FBS games that seem like potential upsets. This one seems to have the best chance since Wofford is pretty good for an FCS team and Wyoming has not shown well so far.

TCU over Ohio State
Ohio State is traveling to TCU with lots of talk about a scandal looming over them. Will this distract them in this early big test on the road?

URI over UConn
UConn had been bad in both loses and URI comes in at 2-0 and almost defeating a FBS team last season. The Rams almost certainly will be ready to take down their rival from their border state. Will the Huskies be ready?
