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.
