2019 CFB Upset Picks and Rankings: Week 8

10/15/2019

Week eight 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. 

The biggest move was in no doubt South Carolina moving all the way to third after taking down a Georgia team that showed no signs of such a poor performance in recent weeks. Next move was Washington moving back into the top 25 after defeating previous #18, Arizona who occupied the spot for a week. Western Michigan was the last addition to the top 25 with their victory over Ball State. 

Last week, we promised some upset picks and we delivered with 2. Miami took down Virginia and Temple took down Memphis. We have some bigger fish to fry for week 9.

Louisville over Clemson. If you've read our article on Trevor Lawrence, then you know where we stand on the Clemson season so far. This team has already had some close calls and this is week it all comes together. Next up is Temple over SMU. Temple payed off last week so why not ride the good luck for another week. SMU is a very good team but at 6 and 0 a loss is coming soon. With that we move on to Kansas over Texas. Admittedly, this falls on the side of wishful thinking but Kansas should feel confident going into a Texas team that's 3 and 2 at home. Finally, Michigan over Penn State. Michigan and Harbaugh are backed into a corner like no other and with nothing more to lose Penn State is in a venerable position.

That wraps up our upset picks for the week. Don't forget to like, follow and register to get the latest.

There are few good teams that fly under the radar quite as much as the Indiana Pacers. The team has been consistently solid for the past decade, but outside of a couple trips to the Eastern Conference Finals, they have not been seen as a serious threat come playoff time. With each of the Pacers' last five seasons ending in...
