    Upsets for week 3

    Before Saturday I would have picked Syracuse but no way that will happen.

    Iowa State over Iowa - I think Syracuse ruined Gameday's plans and now they are at this game.

    Kentucky over Florida - I changed my mind again and going with the upset

    I saw a tweet that said this is the first week since October 12, 2017 that features no ranked matchups. These are the weeks struggle wins and upsets happen.

    Interesting possibilities:

    Ohio State @ Indiana (11am kick) - Early game on the road, Indiana has given OSU problems occasionally.

    Florida @ Kentucky (6pm kick) - Kentucky ought not be good but Florida might not be all that great either.

    Re: Upsets for week 3

    I feel pretty good about Houston pulling the upset against #20 Wazzu on Friday night. Game in Houston, Cougs have already been tested once in Norman. I’ll take the Cougs with a big night from D’Eriq King.

    I’d give my right arm to see Stanford go on the road and beat UCF, but I don’t see it happening. Between a struggle win at home against Northwestern and then getting their doors blown off by USC, seems like Stanford is too far gone. Expect a lot of crowing out of UCF about how they own the PAC-12 and then they’ll treat beating a mediocre team as the win that legitimizes whatever garbage schedule they have the rest of the way.

    Also I wouldn’t call for an upset, but I would consider taking the under on New Mexico @ Notre Dame. Haven’t seen the betting line yet, but ND will likely be looking past them and focusing on UGA all week. ND also has recent history of struggling at home against bad teams. I figure this will be a lower scoring game early with ND pulling away late, so if the line is 40+ I’d take NM.

    You have to admit this has been a very lackluster season thus far. That will change though. There have been no surprises except for LSU's sudden offensive surge. But in reality, I think this has been a bit overenthusiastic because LSU's offense has been very much non-existent for the last few years.

    Keep in mind when pulling for the KY upset that they lost their QB for the year to injury.

    I don't feel strong about either of these. I am almost inclined to pick no upsets.

    I don't think Kentucky will beat Florida. I just saw that Kentucky's starting QB is out for the season after tearing his patella tendon.

    I might need to make a change. Did not know that.

    Plus....IMHO, any SEC road game is never a gimme.

    Kentucky is a very good team....but with their QB out for the season, things got a little easier for Florida.

    Plus look at Franks' numbers from yesterday's game:

    Passing: 25/27 for 270 yards, 2 TD's, and no interceptions

    Florida's defense is fairly salty this year.....leading the conference in sacks with 15.

    That said...I'm not doing any boasting about the next game with Kentucky....I don't want to vex the dang thing! Just sharing some info, that's all.

    Maybe The Quarterback Whisperer has done his thing. Franks has been a bit of a disappointment so far. Big guy and athletic, but lacking something. Maybe he has turned the corner and will play up to the potential always had.
    And the Gator defense is salty.

    I truly hope so, TW. Personally, I don't think Franks has "it" but would love to be proven wrong. He does seem to be improving so we'll see what happens. This week will tell us even more, I guess.
