Inside college football upset picks
With that also comes the opportunity for upsets.No teams ranked in the top 25 of the initial college football rankings play one another in Week 2 but that doesn't mean there isn't upset potential.After all, this is an offseason that's been unlike any other with the effects of covid-19.Subsequently, the preparation for this season has been changed, which could be seen in on-field performance.Of course, the potential for upsets in several games that top 25 teams are playing this week really isn't there.The Oklahoma Sooners are going to boat-race Missouri State and the Texas Longhorns will likely do the same to utep.
