College Football: Who is on Upset Alert in Week Six?
Every week going forward in the college football season, I will provide three teams that should be on Upset Alert going into their game.
Last week, my upsets were 2-1 against the spread, 1-2 straight up. I successfully predicted an Iowa State cover against TCU and a Florida win over Mississippi State. Nebraska is in worse shape than I thought.
So who is on high alert this week? Let’s find out!
COLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEK SIX UPSET ALERT
Old Dominion @ FLORIDA ATLANTIC (-14.5)
The Lane Train has de-railed this season. One could write off the loss to Oklahoma as being out-talented. One cannot overlook a loss to Middle Tennessee.
Old Dominion started 0-3 before shocking Virginia Tech. They narrowly fell to East Carolina last week 37-35. The Monarchs have a potential Top-100 prospect at edge rusher in Oshane Ximines. WR Jonathan Duhart is also a solid NFL prospect.
I think the Monarchs keep this one close with the Owls squeaking by.
IOWA (-6) @ Minnesota
Both teams enter the battle for the Floyd of Rosedale coming off of a bye week. Both teams are also rebounding from a loss.
Golden Gophers true freshman starting QB Zack Annexstad has played well this season. I am still waiting for that true breakout game.
I feel the same way about Hawkeyes junior QB Nathan Stanley.
In a game between rivals, one that feels pretty equal, give me the home team to at least cover.
Uab @ LOUISIANA TECH (-9)
The UAB Blazers have been all over the place during their 3-1 start. Wins over Charlotte and Tulane but a loss to Coastal Carolina.
La Tech is also 3-1 with their only loss to LSU. The Bulldogs feature tremendous edge rusher Jaylon Ferguson. Ferguson is coming off of a four-sack performance against North Texas. UAB has only allowed three sacks this season. The Blazers must protect QB A.J. Erdely.
I may be crazy but give me UAB outright.
Who do you think should be on Upset Alert this week? Let us know in the comments!
