2019 College Football Upset Picks and Rankings: Week Four

09/16/2019

Week two 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 the biggest mover was Arizona State going from previously unranked all the way to 18th. Temple, Air Force and BYU wrap up the rest of the newcomers in the top 25.

Last week we went one for three on upset picks and this week was better. Houston fell short in a nail bitter to Washington State but BYU and Temple assured the rest of our predictions were spot on. BYU defeated USC and freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis in overtime and elsewhere Temple took down Maryland once again. That makes it 3 for 6 for the season as we go into the next week.

For week 4 Oklahoma State over Texas. This makes sense if you consider how prone Texas is to big losses at the worst time. Texas was a little unlucky to lose to LSU and another loss means they are completely out of the college football playoff race. Oklahoma State is coming off a dominant away win against an underrated Tulsa team and that means confidence going into Texas. Stanford over Oregon. The truth is Oregon aren't a very good team and Stanford needs to turn their season around fast. It's desperation time in California and that doesn't bode well for a visiting Oregon team. Our last upset pick of the week is SMU over TCU. SMU will go to TCU but with both team from the same state, it's not much of an away game. This will be a close game and SMU should pull through.

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

This particular prediction is about the best freshman in college basketball this season, Cade Cunningham. It could even be argued that he is the best player in all of college basketball. He is the reason I believe the Oklahoma State Cowboys will win their first BIG 12 Basketball Championship since 2004.

This is perhaps one of the most frustrating myths that currently exists in the NBA, the idea that Joel Embiid is a lazy player. This is despite the fact that both current and ex-teammates and coaches regularly speak of his high work ethic, not to mention his incredible on-court performances.

No team has been more actively trading than the Oklahoma City Thunder. With all the trades they've been making, one thing has certainly been prioritized: collecting future draft picks. Normally collecting such a large amount of 1st round picks would be seen as a good thing, but that may not end up being the case for the Thunder. Oklahoma City...
