I'm moving now! Kudos to Dasyboja for getting on the board as well, and Brabel for jumping into the tie for the lead!

8 points - HuskerFaithful, Spiffy, Brabel

7 points - Me

6 points - CornHuskers

5 points - Prozach, Go Utes

3 points - BigK3, Top, Dasyboja

The rules are simple. Obviously you can only pick the underdog; I use Rivals.com for my spreads. An underdog by 3 1/2 points or less is worth 1 point if they win, 4-8 points is worth 2, and 8 1/2 or more is worth 3.

Give me Georgia over Auburn for 3.

I thought last week about taking La Mon over S Alabama last week and didn't.  I'll take the Warhawks this week over Ga St for 3 and make up for overlooking them.

Did you pick Pittsburgh to defeat Clemson? If so, pat yourself on the back (or some other self-celebrating). I couldn't believe the Pittsburgh Panthers went into Clemson and stunned the Clemson Tigers.  The College Football Playoff rankings are going to be shaken up like an earthquake.  Check in on Tuesday for the latest CFP rankings and how far Clemson will fall.

 


There was also a stunner as Georgia Tech went to #14 Virginia Tech and slapped around VT 30-20. GT beat VT.

 


Now for an upset of a different kind, and I'm doing this because I love you all here on Fans25 and want to offer a little diversity. If you're an NCAA Division 3 football fan, Mount Union's streak of regular season wins came to an end when the Blue Streaks of John Carroll University defeated the Purple Raiders of the University of Mount Union by a score of 31-28. The difference maker was a game-winning field goal by JCU with six seconds left in the game. Mount Union won as many as 112 straight games until this fail today. If that isn't deflating enough, John Carroll won the Ohio Athletic Conference title with this win.

 


Any other upset winners from this week's games... congratulations!

More chaos.  You're a winner if you called Michigan, Washington, and/or Texas A&M to lose their respective games.  This is the first time since October 19, 1985 that #2, #3, and #4 in the nation all lost on the same day in the regular season.  Some of us here on Fans25 were born on or AFTER this day.  Got to love college sports chaos (let alone college football chaos)!
