The weekend with big upsets finally arrived!-Penn State, Washington, Georgia, West Virgnia all lose! This is what makes college football so exciting. A big shake up at the top makes it much more exciting and more likely a one loss conference champion make qualify for the college football playoff.

Seriously no love for UCF, USF, and Cincinnati?- Trust me I would love to give them more credit but I just can't! UCF should have lost to Memphis. USF almost lost to Tulsa. Cincinnati has not impressed me at all but still they have won all their games. At this point it is more likely these teams will each lose to each other and take themselves out of the college football playoff discussion. They just flat out are not as good as other teams in the country.

NC State-Clemson or Oregon-Washington State bigger game of the weekend?-I know that 'Ol Crimson has been flying at EVERY  one of the last 200 plus College Gameday's but can Washington State really beat Oregon? Again great for the city of Pullman, but I believe the Ducks have so much more talent than the Cougars. Maybe College Gameday magic can change something. As for NC State-Clemson, the Tigers have been a tough team to predict. NC State wins this game and they have a right to be discussed as a Top 5 team in the country.
