4 Upsets That Will Happen in College Football This Week

College football is one of the least predicable sports, and anyone has a chance to pull off an upset in any game. Teams that seem unstoppable, often times aren't and that is what makes college football fun. More unpredictability could happen this week, so here is our attempt to predict the unpredictable, and put some top teams on upset alert.

4. SMU over No. 20 TCU

TCU has been on a roll early with two easy victories over Jackson State and Arkansas, but this week might not be as easy. SMU has also had a hot start putting up over 50 points against Stephen F. Austin and North Texas. Quarterback Ben Hicks was outstanding in the Mustangs' last game throwing for 312 yards and four touchdowns. SMU's hot offense will have to keep it up though to make the upset happen, as TCU has only given up a combined seven points in their first two games. 

3. Mississippi State over No. 12 LSU

Any game in the SEC can be won by either side, and Saturday's showdown between Mississippi State and LSU should prove that. Both teams are off to good starts and they are both 2-0. It should be a defensive battle like most SEC games, and it could come down to home field advantage. The game will be played in Mississippi, so advantage Bulldogs there. SEC conference games are officially back, and this one could go either way.

2. Pittsburgh over No. 9 Oklahoma State

Pittsburgh is coming off of a tough loss to Penn State, and their schedule does not get any easier. This week they will take on Oklahoma State, but they will get to do it in the comfort of their own home. Pitt was a tough test for Penn State and that should be the same for the Cowboys. Max Browne is still trying to get comfortable in Pittsburgh's offense after transferring from USC, and this could be the week he puts it together. Mason Rudolph and Oklahoma State have been great, but the Panthers might be able to come away with the upset.

1. No. 14 Louisville over No. 3 Clemson

Clemson is coming off of a hard fought win against Auburn, and they turn right around and head to Louisville. Clemson's defense was fantastic against Auburn, but this week they will have to deal with reigning Heisman winner Lamar Jackson. Louisville has looked unstoppable this year and that is due to Jackson, who has been just as good and if not better then he was last year. In just two games he has already been responsible for over 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns himself. If he can figure out Clemson's defense, then Louisville may be able to pull of the upset.
