College Football Upset Picks: Ole Miss over Bama?
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 6 College Football Picks of the campaign.
UPSET #1: Nebraska +9 @ Michigan State
Nebraska has the last of the undefeated teams this year in the Big Ten, but most aren’t giving it much of a shot in East Lansing this week. Michigan State really only has one blemish on its resume to date, that being the fact that it had the fortitude to go on the road to take on the Oregon Ducks at Autzen Stadium. That said, the Cornhuskers have looked really good this year as well against a schedule that isn’t as bad as it might seem.
Sure, that game against the McNeese State Cowboys still stands out as a potential red flag, and Head Coach Bo Pelini doesn’t exactly have the best track record in games like these, but the best player on the field could be RB Ameer Abdullah. If he can take over this game as we have seen RB Mark Langford do for the Spartans time and time again, this one could end up being a lot closer than most think.

UPSET #2: LSU Tigers +8.5 @ Auburn Tigers
Never count out “The Hat”. Head Coach Les Miles has his back up against the wall after already losing one game this year in the SEC West to the Mississippi State Bulldogs. He’s got a young team led by a young quarterback, and he’s going against an experienced team which was a breakdown on special teams and a defense falling apart in the final 15 minutes away from winning the National Championship a year ago on the road. It’s the first road game of the year for the Bayou Bengals, and they aren’t being given a fighting chance. But to that, we ask what Auburn has done of late!
Auburn did go on the road and beat Kansas State, but the Wildcats aren’t one of the best 20 teams in the game in all likelihood. LSU still has a tremendous amount of talent, and if there’s a man who can figure this one out on the road in hostile territory, it’s Les Miles, the one man who beat Auburn last year in the regular season.

UPSET #3: Ole Miss Rebels +6.5 vs. Alabama Crimson Tide
We’ve already seen the state of Mississippi rise up once this year when the aforementioned Bulldogs went on the road and beat LSU. Can lightning strike twice? We really aren’t all that sure whether the Crimson Tide are one of the best teams in the nation this year or not, but we’re going to find out on Saturday if they can play on the road with the big boys.
We really feel as though the Rebels have one of the best 10 teams in America right now, and they could be set to pull off the shock of all shocks. QB Bo Wallace could turn himself into a Heisman Trophy frontrunner if he and the Rebs can pull off a giant upset in Oxford, and we aren’t counting out the possibility.
