2019 College Football Upset Picks and Rankings: Week Five

09/23/2019

Week four 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 shock this week was UCLA moving all the way to 23rd with their first win of the season in a shocking upset of Washington State. Chip Kelly back? Idk time will tell. Wisconsin also moved up 12 spots in their demolition of Michigan. USC, Pittsburgh, Colorado, Buffalo, UCLA, Boise State and Washington. 

Moving on to our upset picks, we got one right and that result was SMU over TCU. Not a stellar week but it does extend our streak. This next week is full of surefire upset picks.

Maryland over Penn State. Penn State just isn't a good football team and will be tasked with a trip to Maryland for their first away trip of the season. Maryland owe their fans a big result after their debacle at Temple (which we predicted). Next up is Indiana over Michigan State. The bad week for Michigan football teams continue with Indiana coming out of Lansing with a victory. Bo Nix has been exceptional in the clutch for Auburn so far this season but at some point that luck runs out. That point is this week as Auburn hosts a Mississippi State team that is always solid defensively. Mississippi State over Auburn.

Tune in next week to see how our upset picks pan out and for new upset picks.

The Oklahoma City Thunder won the draft. This was the first year in my Thunder fandom where I was nervous about the draft. This was going to be the make-or-break it for the rebuild. For Thunder fans in the last ten years, the draft meant drafting raw athletic long-term projects with later picks. Players like Josh Huestis, Terrance Ferguson, and...

It's draft day! The time of year when we welcome the next wave of talent into our league. Outside of the top 3-5 players, this is the first time most fans hear the names of their next favorite player. Admittedly, I only started paying attention to college prospects during March Madness, and that's only through the view of the...

The Chicago Bulls surprised everyone last year by making the biggest splash in free agency, signing Demar Derozan, Alex Caruso, and Lonzo Ball to pair with Zach Lavine and Nikola Vucevic. Safe to say, the Bulls exceed expectations. Before the season, it was unclear how Lavine and Derozan would fit next to each other. They put those conversations to...
