Last week the true upsets calmed down and we had a relatively low total for our weekly winner.
Syracuse should have beaten Clemson but did not. Are there any good upset candidates this week? True upsets are when one team is at least 300 points higher than the other, and this week does not offer many realistic opportunities. However, this week has more even matchups than any previous week! So it should be harder to get all 5 of your games correct. Continue reading
I said NO WAY and it happened again! ODU was a 28 point underdog, but VTech’s QB went down, and their offense was already dysfunctional. Their defense also forgot to show up and a historic upset occurred. Once again a ranked team with a mediocre or poor offense went down.

Michigan State looked bad last week and Arizona State looked better. Stanford was beaten twice by USC last year but has generally been successful running on USC in the past five years.
