Here at the ICT Zone, we rely on a satirical and unconventional ranking system. No analysis, no subjectivity, if a lower-ranked team defeats a higher-ranked team, then the two teams automatically switch rankings. After all, you're only as good as your last game.
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.

The 2021 NWSL draft was a monumental moment in the progression of soccer in the United States, particularly when it comes to young black girls and women. Five days before MLK day, not only were 2 of the top 3 picks black women but, the six black women selected in the first ten picks set a new NWSL record.
Although there is no denying the Kansas City Chiefs are the overwhelming favorites for the Super Bowl, as they should be, I believe the Cleveland Browns will defeat them on route to the AFC Championship.
