College Hoops Shockers: Ranking The Upsets of The New Year

Although we are only a few weeks into the year 2011, there have already been plenty of major upsets in college basketball.

Upsets are expected in any sport but to see so many happen in such a short period of time is amazing. In fact there have been 17 games since January 1 that have resulted in the un-ranked or lower ranked team winning.

To rank the upsets, I mixed in the margin of victory, where the game was being played, and most importantly, the ranking differential between the team that won and the team that got upset. This list will not include games in which neither team was ranked.

There will certainly be many more upsets to come in this college basketball season, one that has already proven itself to be very unpredictable. For now, I present the biggest upsets of the young year.
