College Football Rollup Week 10

After a bye last week the College Football Rollup makes it long awaited return! Did you miss us? One thing is for sure, even with us taking a bye week off the upsets that have plagued favorites this season have yet to take a single week off. The upset bug was alive and well as two top 10 teams fell to unranked teams and another 3 ranked teams fell to unranked opponents. Most of my picks from Saturday’s games hit, so I am feeling great knowing that my upsets came through. With that said, let’s get into this week’s CFR (week 10 edition)!

Down goes Michigan State!!! Down goes Michigan State!! I like some other folks saw this top 10 upset coming from miles away. Purdue has been playing great football and though Michigan State came in undefeated, you just knew that Purdue would have a great game plan to execute, and they did it to perfection. Aidan O’Connell lit up the Spartan with 536 yards passing and three touchdown passes. Purdue now has two top 10 upsets this season and the most of all time as an unranked underdog. Impressive for the Boilermakers to say the least.

Georgia State gave another ranked opponent a scare. They almost pulled off the unthinkable against Auburn earlier in the season and they almost did it again on Saturday but almost doesn’t count. The Ragin’ Cajuns of Louisiana held on to win on Thursday night.

Arkansas wins over the #17 ranked Bulldogs of Mississippi State in dramatic fashion! The Razorbacks are officially bowl eligible and the bookies of the Vegas sports books must have known something because they had Arkansas as the favorite to win this game in spite of Miss State’s AP poll ranking.

Pittsburgh returned to its winning ways after falling to the Miami Hurricanes last week by a 25-point beatdown of Duke in an ACC matchup.

UTSA knocks out UTEP much like Canelo Alvarez did Caleb Plant. This one ended up being a one-sided affair of Conference USA Texan rivals.

Liberty tried it’s best to stay in the game but lost by 13 to Ole Miss. Lane Kiffin’s offense has been held below its scoring average the last few weeks. Trend or no?

Wake Forest is no longer the only undefeated team in the ACC as UNC staged a big-time comeback to win in a 58-55 thriller which featured no defense. You see scores like this in college basketball in March. This one was one of my upset specials that I felt very sure about.

Picture the Georgia Bulldogs still rolling through the SEC. Undefeated and defensively dominating everyone in their path. On Saturday Bulldogs were better than Tigers.

Ohio State won their matchup with Nebraska comfortably, but the scoring margin was right about where you would expect. It wasn’t a blowout but Nebraska was never really in it either.

BYU Idaho State beatdown.

Notre Dame played the Midshipmen of the Naval academy as we get closer to Veterans Day. The Fighting Irish tied their largest margin of victory this season in the win.

TCU Felled Baylor by 2 points. This is one of the few picks that I got wrong. I took Baylor due to their ranking and the fact that TCU had just fired their head man, but my gut was telling me that TCU and Baylor were similar teams in terms of talent.

Wisconsin destroyed Rutgers like they weren’t even on the field with them. 52-3? Sheesh. The New Jersey High School Athletic Association may be calling soon to ask if Rutgers would like to join one of their competitive districts.

Penn State easily won over Maryland. Maryland needs some new direction. Not really sure where the Terps are headed at this point.

Oklahoma State beats the Mountaineers by 3 touchdowns.

Texas A&M defensively dominated Auburn in a matchup of top ten ranked SEC rivals. It was a predictable outcome in my opinion though. The Aggies have earned their climb back into the top 11. Auburn’s results have left me feeling not so confident about their ability to beat top tier teams.

Cincinnati takes care of Tulsa in a game that felt more decisive than the final score would have you believe. For now Cincinnati is still in the College Football playoffs but they need to start blowing out teams of this caliber to keep themselves in the good graces of the committee.

NC State gets back in the win column after losing to Miami 2 weeks ago by beating Miami rival FSU by 2 touchdowns. The Seminoles have been trending in the right direction lately but they need to start winning games more consistently or risk not making a bowl game.

Coastal Carolina beats up on Georgia Southern and Iowa holds on to win against Northwestern.

Alabama wins a close won over LSU. Starting to wonder if Alabama is as good as we think? They have not put teams away and have been in many close games this season. It feels like another giant slaying could be on the horizon for them from another game scrappy underdog SEC team.

Tennessee pulls off a big upset that I saw coming over the Wildcats of Kentucky. It was a fun game that saw UK convert an amazing 4th and 24 to keep the game going but the Volunteers held on for the win after that. Josh Heupel has the Tenn program headed in the right direction.

Houston wins a shootout over the Bulls of South Florida and the Oregon Ducks overcome some early struggles to win on the road against the Huskies of Washington. Oregon is another one of those top ranked team living on the edge with these survive and advance results. They cannot afford another loss if they want to keep their outside shot of making the college football playoffs.

Boise State decisively knocks off Fresno State that was trying to hold onto its fringe top 25 ranking but let’s face it, we all knew Boise was going to take Fresno to the woodshed and get medieval on that. Boise Broncos in a blowout!
