College Football Upset Watch: Week 8

By Buffalo66
Buffalo, NY

The upset watch is back after a short vacation.  Let's try to stay classy, fans!

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:

BYU at Houston (+310).  This is a classic match-up of a great defense against a high powered offense.  Undefeated Houston averages just under 40 points per game.  Perhaps the freshman QB John O'Korn can keep his composure and notch the win.

TCU (+260) at Oklahoma State.  Both of these teams had high expectations but have already tasted defeat.  The Frogs have played a killer schedule to date and may be better prepared for battle.  The Cowboys seem to struggle playing from behind. 

UCLA (+175) at Stanford.  Utah upset Stanford last week to break the 2nd longest FBS winning streak.  The Bruins come into town undefeated.  This game should come down to the play of the two quarterbacks.  If Brett Hundley can get some good runs, the UCLA passing game should open up.
