2019 College Football Upset Picks and Rankings: Week Two

09/03/2019

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. 

Make sure you tune in next week to see how our upset picks pan out along with our updated top 25. Make sure to follow us on facebook and on twitter for updates on our latest predictions.

Here at the ICT Zone, our power rankings are based on a very simple philosophy. "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 results from prior weeks.

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...
