Which highly ranked teams could be upset on Saturday?
Georgia at No. 2 Auburn: This is a trap game for the Tigers. With a big game against Alabama on the horizon, Auburn could look past unranked Georgia. The Tigers’ secondary is the team’s weak link, and the Bulldogs have the best wide receiver in the game in A.J. Green. Not to mention the controversy surrounding Auburn quarterback Cam Newton. This one could be closer than the experts think.
No. 10 Oklahoma State at Texas: The Longhorns are having a down year by anyone’s standards, but it’s never easy to go into Texas and hook the Horns in Austin. Can OSU handle the pressure of a top-ten ranking and a shot at the Big XII title?
No. 13 Iowa at Northwestern: The Hawkeyes must win if they have absolutely any chance of earning a share of the Big Ten title. But the Wildcats are no pushover, as they took Michigan State to the brink only a couple of weeks ago. Iowa gains nothing by winning this game, but they have everything to lose if they were to trip up in Evanston.
