College Football Upset Watch: Week 2

By Buffalo66

Who's ready for week 2 of college football?

Each week I get to highlight the games that have "live dogs."  If they can pull off the upset, those juicy odds will fatten your wallet.  Keep your eye on these games:

Bowling Green at Kent State (+250).  The Falcons are getting a lot of love from odds makers after putting a spanking on Tulsa.  Meanwhile, Kent State squeaked by Liberty.  However, if the Golden Flashes have a healthy Dri Archer at RB Saturday, then this game will be a lot closer than most people think.  Last season Archer led the nation with 9.0 yards per carry.

Western Kentucky (+400) at Tennessee. Bobby Petrino's Hilltoppers impressed with a 35-26 win over Kentucky.  Now they must travel to Knoxville and take on the Volunteers.  Tennessee is running an offense similar to Oregon.  However, their defense still hasn't been tested.  If WKU can get some early points and a few stops, the wheels may come off the Vols wagon.

Colorado State (+310) at Tulsa.  Both of these team are coming off of disappointing losses.  Neither team seemed prepared defensively.  But it was Tulsa who also struggled on the offensive side, only putting up 7 points.  Even though they are at home, the Hurricanes could lose to a hungrier Rams squad.
