2019 CFB Upset Picks and Rankings: Week 11
Week nine of our CFB rankings and Upset Picks. Our criteria is very simple, to be the man you gotta beat the man, if a lower ranked team beats a higher ranked team, then the two teams automatically swap spots regardless of prior results.
There weren't many upsets this week but there was a big matchup with Georgia taking down Florida in Florida. That win gives Georgia an outside shot for the playoffs but it will be difficult. The remaining games went as expected. But next week we get to see a 1 v 2 matchup with LSU riding into Alabama with a chance of cementing a place in the CFB Playoffs, Tua's availability will be the difference maker.
Last week, we gave you three upset picks and we fell just short. This week we give you three more. Baylor might be the most underrated team in the country due to the weakness of the BIG 12 but unfortunately their undefeated season ends this weekend. TCU only have one home loss all season and it was a close one to an SMU team that just lost for the first time all season. TCU over Baylor. Next up is another BIG 12 game with Kansas State going into Texas. Texas are a better team than 5 and 3 and should be good enough to take down Kansas State. Texas over Kansas State. Iowa over Wisconsin. This isn't much of an upset since both teams are ranked so high but Iowa will hand Wisconsin a third straight loss.
Here are our Top 25 for the week.

Other times, players come out of nowhere for breakout seasons, like CJ McCollum in 2016 and...
