4 College Football Teams on Upset Alert in Week 4

After successfully predicting four Top 25 upsets from Week 2 and Week 3 of the college football season, we're going to keep the ball rolling by highlighting four more teams that need to be on upset alert in Week 4 of the 2018-19 college football season. 


4. No. 14 Mississippi State Bulldogs @ Kentucky Wildcats (+10)

Kentucky has already pulled off an SEC upset as double-digit underdogs on the road against then-No. 20 Florida, so why can't they do it again at home this weekend? Mississippi State's offense led by rising star quarterback Nick Fitzgerald can put up some points, but Kentucky is probably the best unranked team out there. Watch out for the Wildcats, especially to cover. 

3. No. 18 Wisconsin Badgers @ Iowa Hawkeyes (+3)

Wisconsin was exposed by BYU in the comfort of their own home last week, and paid the price by dropping 12 spots in the Week 4 AP Top 25 Poll. The Hawkeyes are one of the few Big Ten West teams that have had kept it interesting with Wisconsin lately, and the series is a dead-even split at 7-7 over the past 14 games. Not to mention it's been 10 years since Iowa beat the Badgers at home in Kinnick, meaning they might be due for one Saturday. 

2. No. 9 Stanford Cardinal @ No. 20 Oregon Ducks (+2)

Something's gotta give in Eugene this Saturday. Oregon's offense has been scoring on low-level opponents by an average of more than 51 points per game, while the Stanford defense has allowed just a little more than 7 points per game through Week 3. The Cardinal's have had Oregon's number lately, but this year's Ducks team looks like the best we've seen since Marcus Mariota was there in 2015. 



1. No. 8 Notre Dame Fighting Irish @ Wake Forest (+7.5)

Notre Dame has been flat out unimpressive this season, especially if you're holding the Fighting Irish to their Top-10 potential. Last time I checked, Top-10 teams that mess around and barely escape opponents like Ball State and Vanderbilt at home don't fair too well against improved competition on the road. Don't be surprised if this game comes down to a last-second field goal in either team's favor.
