In the middle of one of the biggest betting weekends of the year in horse racing, I still find some time to make college football upset picks. Of course, with the first CFP Poll out and season altering games such as Alabama-LSU, Notre Dame-Northwestern, Georgia-Kentucky, and Michigan-Penn State, this is a weekend to sit down and just enjoy all the action. Here are my five upsets of the Saturday card:
It is amazing that we are already a month into the College Football Season. We have seen thrilling last second victories, comebacks, collapses, and upsets abound. Already we have seen great games in the forms of LSU-Auburn, Stanford-Oregon, and Ohio State-Penn State, with many more not named and so many more to come. But, with all of the polls that come out each week, the movement in each is nearly meaningless. The only thing that matters is what the College Football Playoff Committee decides in just four weeks. A lot can happen in these next few weeks, from the top teams going down to surprising upstart teams rolling in. Let’s see how these next four weeks could play out.
White. Nothing like it. Pure, clean, loud, busy, random, raucous, 31-10, 4OT, super reliable from inside 40. Moments that can only be described by two words: White Out.
This Saturday, one team steps into a house where every thought is blocked out by white noise. Where ever fan is clad in one color, a sea – no an ocean – of white. A place where the team from Columbus was the first victim to go down under the lights of white at Beaver Stadium in 2005. A place where they were rocked from No. 2 just two years ago.
