2018 CFB Upset Picks and Rankings: Week Twelve

Lucky number 13. Last week's Oklahoma State victory over West Virginia made it twelve straight weeks with an upset pick for the zone and this week we go for thirteen straight.

This week we have Florida State with the upset over Florida, Florida State has been awful all season while Florida has exceled but records go out the window when it comes to a rivalry game like this. Florida State is at home and should take this game. Next up we have West Virginia over Oklahoma, not much of an upset considering West Virginia is ranked 13th and playing at home. Oklahoma is awful defensively and West Virginia is hungry for a big win after last week's letdown. Kansas State over Iowa State in Iowa, there is no clear reason to favor KSU in this game especially going away from home but we have a good feeling about their chances.

We have a lot of gripes to hold against the CFP top 25 but they are the rule of the land. Our top 25 continues to operate the same way, to be the man you gotta beat the man. Tune in next week to see our upset picks and how everything shakes up.

But we are headed for a new era that is going to flip the script altogether. A new era of parity, an era where the talent is spread evenly across the country. ...
