College Football Picks Week 10: Predicting the Biggest Upsets of the Week

0 of 3

    This week may be dominated by LSU vs. Alabama but there are plenty of other great games on the schedule.

    Unfortunately for those who enjoy the upsets, there doesn’t appear to be many opportunities for the underdog to come out with a win.

    The following upset picks are the most likely out of all of the games this weekend, but it’s not a guarantee that any of them will actually happen.

No. 15 Michigan vs. Iowa

1 of 3

    Iowa’s three losses are all on the road and come by a combined 14 points. Michigan has only played two road games this season and they lost one and were down at the half in the other.

    The Hawkeyes have won the last two series between the teams and their offense should put up a lot of yards against a pretty porous Wolverine defense with Marcus Coker and Marvin McNutt.

    Iowa always seems to have an upset in them and even though they lost to Minnesota last week, they could surprise a lot of people and come out with a big win.

Texas Tech vs. No. 21 Texas

2 of 3

    So the Red Raiders lost to Iowa State last week, but they are still the football team that ended Oklahoma’s home winning streak by dominating nearly every facet of the game.

    Texas’ best win is a one-point home victory over BYU and their defense is giving up 21 points per game, which means the Longhorns may have to put up big numbers to out-score Texas Tech.

    Vegas has Texas as the 14 point favorites but Tech should at least cover and if they can get some turnovers, they could win this game.

Northwestern vs. No. 10 Nebraska

3 of 3

    The Huskers have had trouble with running quarterbacks all year long and Dan Persa can move with the ball and is also incredibly efficient, completing over 75 percent of his passes.

    Northwestern’s defense has been really atrocious all year and Rex Burkhead and Taylor Martinez should both have big games, but the Wildcats are another one of those teams waiting for their time to strike. It will be tough though, as this game will be played in the Sea of Red.
