2019 CFB Upset Picks and Rankings: Week 9

10/22/2019

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. 

The biggest change this week came at the hand of the biggest upset with Illinois topping Wisconsin. That catapults Illinois to 7th and Wisconsin outside of our top 25. Speaking of upset picks we have some for you.

Last week's upset picks did not go as expected, the closest we came was Kansas in a heartbreaking loss to Texas with no time left on the clock. That was last week and this week we bounce back.

Northwestern over Iowa. Don't let last week's beatdown at the hands of Ohio State fool you, Northwestern is still a very tough place to place. Iowa hasn't won a game by more than 6 in three weeks which means this one will be close, Northwestern pulls through. Next we have TCU over Texas, TCU is currently on a two game losing streak while Texas won a close one against Kansas. TCU are in desperate need of a big win for their bowl game prospects and that means they come out swinging. Next up we have The BIG 10 is good for an upset pick every week and this week Michigan State defends the fort against Penn State. Penn State are undefeated but are 3 and 0 in games that are decided by 7 points or less, at some point that luck runs out. Michigan State over Penn State.

And their replacement, Jesse Marsch, was hired into a nearly impossible situation. Leed had just...

I did my worst fanbases earlier in the week, so it's only fair that I do my best fanbases. No bias or anything here; this is as objective and fair of a list as you'll find based on my soccer knowledge. in my humble opinion, these are the best fanbases to play for. And again, if you don't agree, don't forget to write your local congressman or woman....
