College Football Upset Picks: KSU over Oklahoma?
We’re into the nitty-gritty of the season in college football betting action, and we’re starting to get a bit of a feeling for who all of these teams really are. Join us for our teams that are on upset alert for Week 8 College Football Picks of the campaign.
UPSET #1: Kansas State (+240 ML) @ Oklahoma Sooners
The Wildcats were bigger dogs than this two years ago when they came to Norman and pulled off the upset, and we think that these Sooners are a lot more fragile right now than those Sooners were at that point in the season in 2012. The Wildcats would be a Top 5 team in the land if not for the fact that they were held down by a good Auburn Tigers team to 14 points early in the season. This defense though, is legit for KSU.
This is a lot of points to be giving a Head Coach Bill Snyder team, and any time we have a shot to take the Wildcats at anything better than 2 to 1, we at least have to consider taking the chance. These two teams are a lot closer than you probably think in terms of raw talent, and the little guys from the “Little Apple” could pull off an upset that is anything but little.

UPSET #2: Arizona State (+140 ML) vs. Stanford Cardinal
Stanford’s offense just flat out stinks. Sure, the Cardinal could win this one by putting together a heck of a defensive effort, but in this day and age, we just don’t trust teams like this one, especially on the road, and definitely when you’re talking about a team that has all of the offensive weapons that the Sun Devils do. Remember that this ASU team had the guns, even without QB Taylor Kelly, to beat the USC Trojans, albeit on a Hail Mary at the end of the game.
However, just to be in that position was a heck of an accomplishment, and it is one that we have not overlooked. The Cardinal could be in a lot of trouble here.

UPSET #3: Washington Huskies (+800 ML) @ Oregon Ducks
A few weeks ago, the Ducks were knocked from the ranks of the unbeatens here at Autzen Stadium when they were beaten by the Arizona Wildcats. Now, they’re in a relatively similar spot against the Huskies. This is the type of team that really could frustrate the heck out of Oregon. The Huskies have a really good defensive line that can get after the passer, and we all know by now that the Ducks have tremendous problems along their offensive line.
U-Dub doesn’t turn the ball over, and it doesn’t shoot itself in the foot all that often. That’s the recipe for a game to stay close all the way until the end. If that’s the case, the Huskies could be very live dogs, even on the road at night at Autzen Stadium, which is notoriously one of the toughest places to go play in the Pac-12.
