Upset Picks

Time to check in with how my "Upsets of the Day" are going...

My primary one was Missouri to lose at Texas Tech. Unfortunately, Missouri leads 17-3 midway through the second quarter. Still plenty of time left, no worries. Surprising to see the TT offense so bottled up, but the Mizzu defense has garnered tons of praise in 2010.

One of the two I listed as secondary was Washington State to beat Cal. The Bears came out of Pullman with a 20-13 victory. Washington State was impressive in the first half, but very mediocre in the second half, at best. Brock Mansion was pretty bad in his first star for Cal at quarterback, but Washington State's 194 total offensive yards led to their demise. Credit to Cal's defense for stepping up on a very unpredictable day for the Cal offense.

Next up was Texas A&M to beat Oklahoma. It appears for now that Texas A&M leads 19-10, but had been leading 19-0 after returning the second half kickoff for a touchdown. It appears the Sooners are finding their way now. Could/should be a great finish.
