2019 College Football Upset Picks and Rankings: Week Seven

10/07/2019

Week seven 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. 

This week was one of the more simple ones we have had with our rankings in a while. Stanford was the only previously unranked team to join the top 25 after wrestling the number 14 spot away from Washington State despite missing virtually their entire offensive line and two quarterbacks. College football can be cruel and for Washington State there goes their College Football Playoff chances 6 weeks into the season.

Last week was the first time in a long time we went without any correct upset picks and this week we bounced back by going two for three. Cincinnati took down UCF in a game that finally ends the mini UCF dynasty. Texas Tech also held firm at home and took down Oklahoma State but Cal did fall just short of Oregon after a disappointing 4th quarter.  

This week we go for a full sweep.

Miami over Virginia. Miami is currently 2-3 on the season but while Virginia is 4 and 1, they are coming off a loss at Notre Dame and Miami University remains one of the toughest places to play. Miami uses this to avenge their loss to Virginia Tech last week. Picking Temple over Memphis is an easy one but doesn't make it any less likely. Temple is currently undefeated at home which already includes a win against a top 25 opponent. Washington State over Arizona State, the battle of the state universities. Washington State just lost a DC, are coming off two straight losses and yet this feels like a win for Washington State. Last time Arizona State was at home they lost to Colorado and the same thing will happen again. Hawaii over Boise State. Boise State is 5 and 0 but that feels generous for how good the team actually is, at some point college football corrects itself and that happens for Boise State this week. Oregon State over Utah. No real concrete reason for this one but Oregon State needs a big win to turn their season around and there's no bigger win than taking down a top 25 team.

Tune in next week to see how our upset picks pan out. In the mean time, like, follow and subscribe to get up to date content.

Considering Jeff Okudah was the third overall draft pick in 2020, his first two seasons in the NFL were quite poor to say the least. In fact, many people were already quick to throw around the word "bust" when mentioning his name. Towards the end of his rookie season, Okudah ranked dead last in yards allowed per route, and according...

Even before Chet Holmgren's season-ending injury, Banchero was the favorite to win the rookie of the year award, but I'm going to go a step further. I think Paolo Banchero will make the all-star team as a forward in the eastern conference. I am convinced he's a bonafide star. He can score, playmake, and I can tell the game is...

Once seen as one of the most promising young stars in the NBA, Washington Wizards big man Kristaps Porzingis has had injuries derail every one of his seasons since his rookie year. He had a great end to his season last year, however, after being traded to the Wizards from the Dallas Mavericks, averaging a stat line of 22/9/3. I...
