Welcome once again to the upset watch! With lots of mismatches this week we'll spend a lot of time looking at the sidelines.
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:
Louisiana Tech (+325) at Kansas. Quite honestly, both of these teams are horrible. Kansas just lost to Rice while Tech lost to Tulane. The Jayhawks are -10 at home but I believe whichever team wants the win bad enough will take it.
Michigan State (+175) at Notre Dame. The Irish defense got exposed again last week by a frisky Purdue offense. The Spartans are coming off three straight cupcake victories and might have fresher legs for this one. If they can hold ND under 30 they have a shot.
Utah State (+230) at USC. The Trojans have a great run defense but they are about to face one of the best pistol offenses in the land. Aggies QB Chuckie Keeton would be a heisman contender at a bigger school. USC coach Lane Kiffin loves to go for 2 point conversion often. Someday that's going to backfire on him.
