The last 24 hours in football have been a whirlwind of outcry, complaints, memes, jokes, vibes, and protests about the state of the sport in the aftermath of the announcement of the European Super League. Unfortunately, at the root of this movement is a whole lot of misinformation that make the league seem far worse than it actually is.
2019 CFB Upset Picks and Rankings: Week 13
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.
This week was another boring one for college football. The biggest addition to our top 25 was in the state of Iowa with Iowa State moving to 4th and Iowa University sliding in at 15th after handing Minnesota their first loss. The most eventful moment was the unfortunate loss of Tua to a season ending injury. Praying that he can make a full recovery ahead of the NFL draft.
Last week, we gave you a variety of upset picks but unfortunately we fell short. Illinois over Iowa. Illinois are one of the hottest teams in all of college football with 4 straight wins including wins over Michigan State and Wisconsin. West Virginia over Oklahoma State. This was an easy one to choose, West Virginia upset Kansas State in Kansas last week and there's no reason they won't do it again this week especially at home. Next up is SMU over Navy. SMU fully deserve a spot in the top 25 and they will prove it this weekend by going to Navy and coming home with a victory.
Tune in next week to see our rankings and upset picks.
