Week 13 Upset Picks - The FootballScoop staff weighs in

Bret Bielema

Two weeks ago marked our best week of the season, hitting two of three, and last week was our worst. Scott missed on Mississippi State over Alabama, while Doug and Zach whiffed mightily on Georgia Southern over Navy and Kentucky over Tennessee.

This season: Scott (4-8), Doug (5-7), Zach (4-8)

Scott: over 

air-force.120
san-diego-state.120

I like Air Force (a 6-point dog) to upset San Diego State. Air Force has been playing very well of late, winning their last four. San Diego State got beat up a bit at Boise last weekend. Combine that with a tough-to-prepare-for offense in Air Force, and I think this is a Falcons win.

Doug: over 

arizona.120 (1)
utah.120

My gut tells me that Arizona (a four-point underdog) is just too talented to lose this one. My gut is also the one that picked Texas A&M over Alabama (0-59) and Georgia Southern over Navy (19-52) so take that for what it's worth.

Zach:  over 

arkansas.120
ole-miss.120

It's time to ride the lightning, baby. Arkansas has played above its record the entire season - and Vegas recognizes that, installing the Hogs as just a 2.5-point dog. Ole Miss had last week off, but I like the momentum Arkansas gained from last week's at-long-last win over LSU to carry over into this week.
