If any Week of this season has upsets just brewing to happen this is the week.  Not saying all of these will happen, but there are some big ones ripe for the November surprise this week.....

Connecticut v. Syracuse - Uconn coming off a big win.  This would be a minor upset...

Purdue v. MSU - Purdue's only strength is run D; MSU off bye week makes their mistakes when they throw the ball...big one possible here...

Wisky v. Michigan - typical Big 10...Michigan would love this one.  Wisky's O line might be too much for M defense which is c+ at best..but weird things happen to conference leaders in Ann Arbor....

NW v. Illinois at Wrigley..Cats are real...they pull this one off

Stanford v. Cal - Cal is real at home ask da ducks...Cal pulls a big one off against the Cardinal

Baylor v. Oklahoma - Bears are better than Nov has treated them.  Watch out sooners, you might get bit at Baylor

Nebraska v. Texas AM - this has got upset all over it.  Neb is limping to the finish...AM is peaking...this one could happen

Louisville v. West Virginia - Louisville will need this game at home.  WV coming off a blowout of Cincy..

SDS v. Utah - Utah couldn't have a worse FU game to TCU, ND....they lose 3 in a row....

Nine listed above....I would love to take a parlay on five of the nine...

Cal will get prison-sexed by the Tree.    Will be finding rectal splinters for years.

Five that might happen: UL, SDSU, TAMU, NU, and Michigan.

Baylor couldn't stop me, and is in an awful emotional spot.  Purdue's just not good enough, though they do seem to catch someone napping every year.  UConn would hardly surprise, though, as you note, it's not much of an upset.

MSU is getting healthy off the bye.... Purdue has a back-up QB.... MSU will be ready and will probably roll

Without Dan Persa it's a totally different NU team.  Not saying they won't win because when you play Ron Zook anything is possible, just saying it's not even close to the same offense.  Persa is one hell of a player!

As for Purdue, they are very, vey, very poor on offense.  Very Poor.  Horrid.  Just too many injuries.  Michigan turned the ball over 5x and still kept them out of the endzone (PU's only score was a pick 6).  Yes, you read that correctly.  Michigan's DEFENSE held Purdue out of the endzone (that is not a mis-print).  Imo, Purdue will have trouble covering the 20.

Michigan could pull the upset, but need some turnovers from Wisconsin, and that is if they don't turn the ball over themselves (which they have now done 10x in the last two games).  Michigan is so out-manned in the trenches, I have no idea how Wisky doesn't rush for 300+ yards. However, two reasons this could happen; (1)Senior day in AA so they should be a little pumped to play and (2) Wisky typcially plays horrible in AA.
