The NBA playoffs usually produce a few young stars, with the spotlight that comes from the increased pressure really pushing some players to ascend to new levels of play. Last year, Pascal Siakam became a shocking number two option on an NBA championship team. This year, it's going to be Shai Gilgeous-Alexander of the Oklahoma City Thunder who...
2019 College Football Upset Picks and Rankings: Week Two
College football is back which means our unique ranking system makes a return along with our nostradamus-like upset picks. The highlight of last season was our prediction that unranked Purdue would upset number 2 Ohio State and then follow that up with week 9 where we correctly predicted every single upset. Not to toot our own horn here but upset picks are our thing and your best bet (no pun intended) is to listen to us.
Back to the ranking, week 1 did not shake up our rankings much. The only upset of the top 25 was Auburn over Oregon which means the two teams now swap spots with Auburn jumping to 11 and Oregon dropping to 16. This next week promises some upsets which means we are here to give you an edge.
Rutgers got beat up on last week after struggling out of the gate against UMass, even though Rutgers won the game the college football world was not kind to the team that won just a single game last season. There's no football reason that makes sense for this one but Rutgers over #20 Iowa. Colorado over Nebraska. Colorado is going through a little bit of a regime change with a new coach but Mel Tucker brings with him one of the most impressive resumes in all of college football. Nebraska did not look all that impressive last week which means Colorado is in prime position to upset the number 24 team in the country. Texas over LSU. This is not much of an upset considering Texas is at home and currently the number 10 team in the country. Texas are slowly making their way back to a championship contending program and this is the next step in that process.
