Here at, we are taking a weekly look at the teams that could be ones ripe to pull off some major upsets! Before making your college football picks this week, check out some of these potentially ugly underdogs.  This group of dogs could come up and bite you in the butt in you aren't careful in the third week of college football betting action!

Underdog Pick #1: Nevada Wolfpack (+120 at Diamond Sportsbook) vs. California Golden Bears, Friday 10:00 ET: The second Friday night college football affair of this week is going to feature two very high powered offenses. The Wolfpack have a real chance to make a name for themselves and their screwy Pistol offense in the final year for QB Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick has the ability to run for 200 yards and throw for 300 yards in the same game, even against a bunch of Golden Bears that are coming out of the Pac-10. Nevada won't be playing a heck of a lot of defense in this one, but we have to remember that this is a team that is 26-12 in its L/38 home games. Needless to say, MacKay Field really screws up its opponents. Last year, HC Jeff Tedford's team was taken out by the Utah Utes in the Poinsettia Bowl. This year could be a significantly tougher challenge going on the road against a team that could be every bit as good, if not better. Nevada has the NCAA football trends on its side in this one and could pull the outright upset.

Underdog Pick #2: Arizona Wildcats (+110 at Diamond Sportsbook) vs. Iowa Hawkeyes, Saturday, 10:30 ET: The Hawkeyes did a fantastic job last year of getting off to a good start, and they ultimately nearly ended up winning the Big Ten for it. Last year, one of their signature wins came against these Wildcats, though the game was in Kinnick Stadium. Now, Iowa has to return the favor to Arizona, in what could be the biggest game in the HC Mike Stoops era. Remember last year when the Wildcats nearly trumped the Oregon Ducks at home in what could've sent them to the Rose Bowl? It is fairly clear that this is a team that isn't screwing around this year either. Winning by a combined score of 93-8 this season has been phenomenal for 'Zona, but this is going to be a significantly different challenge. QB Ricky Stanzi isn't easy to beat, as the Hawkeyes went undefeated last year when he finished a game he started. However, Arizona is definitely capable of pulling this upset and should be on your radar.

Underdog Pick #3: Tulsa Golden Hurricane (+250 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Oklahoma State Cowboys, Saturday, 7:00 ET: Tulsa really could be a 2-0 team right now, and if not for the Hail Mary that connected for the East Carolina Pirates, the perception of this game would be totally different. The Golden Hurricane aren't afraid to go on the road and take it to some big boy opponents. QB GJ Kinne is one of two men in the country that have thrown for at least 350 yards in each of his first two games of the year. Oklahoma State might have wins over Troy and Washington State this year, but neither victory has us jumping for joy. The Trojans nearly pulled the upset here in Stillwater last week in a 41-38 defeat. The truth of the matter is that the Golden Hurricane are significantly better than the Trojans are, and if that holds true, the upset really could be in the cards. Either way, grabbing the seven points really isn't a bad idea for one of the best teams in Conference USA.

Underdog Pick #4: Temple Owls (+220 at Diamond Sportsbook) vs. Connecticut Huskies, Saturday, 12:00 ET: Though the Owls haven't looked great this season and the Huskies are coming off of one of the biggest wins in terms of margin of victory in school history, we tend to believe that this is going to be a fantastic home pup sitting there for the taking on Saturday afternoon. Temple has all the talent in the world to finish as a Top 25 team this year, and a win against a fellow Top 25 contender in UConn would be huge. The City of Brotherly Love is going to be beaming for this one, as there aren't many more chances for the Owls to impress like this. Temple found a way to beat the Central Michigan Chippewas last week, and they should be up for this challenge as well. If they can slow down RB Jordan Todman, even just a tad, they could be ripe for the pickings.
