Here at Cappers Info, we are taking a weekly look at the teams that could be ones ripe to pull off some major upsets! Check out the potentially ugly dogs that could come up and bite you in the butt in you aren't careful for the second week of college football betting action!
Florida State Seminoles (+300 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Oklahoma Sooners, Saturday, 3:30 ET: Inevitably, the Seminoles are going to need a Herculean effort just to even remotely stick around with the Sooners this week. However, just as former HC Bobby Bowden had no fear about going on the road and trying to beat any team in the country, new HC Jimbo Fisher is in dire need of a signature win to nail himself down as the true captain of the garnet and gold ship this year. If QB Christian Ponder wants to win the Heisman Trophy this year, he has to outduel fellow Heisman candidate QB Landry Jones. The Oklahoma defense looked mortal last week in a 31-24 win over Utah State. FSU might be able to catch the Sooners napping just a tad and pull a tremendous upset that could ultimately send huge shockwaves through the ACC and the rest of the college football betting world.
UCLA Bruins (+220 at Diamond Sportsbook) vs. Stanford Cardinal, Saturday, 10:30 ET: The Bruins might be a better team than we originally thought at the outset of the season. They didn't play all that poorly against Kansas State last week, and it was amazing that they stuck within nine points in spite of the fact that QB Kevin Prince only completed nine of his 26 passes. Things can only get better offensively from there. The Cardinal beat the snot out of Sacramento State last week, but who cares? It's Sacramento State. The ground game might have produced 213 yards, but no one made it past 57 last week individually. This is going to be the first real challenge for QB Andrew Luck, as the sophomore is going to be flying on the road for the first time without the services of RB Toby Gerhart behind him. This is a very, very interesting proposition for an upset, as the Bruins badly need to win this game and HC Rick Neuheisel knows it.
Michigan Wolverines (+165 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Saturday, 3:30 ET: Last week, we picked against Big Blue and got burned in a bad way. This week, we aren't being as foolish. The Wolverines looked great against a team that we still have a good feeling about in the UConn Huskies. There were no answers for QB Denard Robinson last week for the Huskies, and we tend to think that the Irish aren't going to have much more work. Robinson completed 19-of-22 passes for 186 yards and a TD and rushed for another 197 yards and a TD on 29 carries. HC Rich Rodriguez's defense played fantastic ball as well, holding Connecticut to just ten points and 343 yards. Be very, very careful Notre Dame. The Wolverines might be able to put together a fantastic effort even away from the Big House and pull off the solid upset.
South Florida Bulls (+600 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Florida Gators, Saturday, 12:20 ET: Could the Gators really be in store for yet another difficult game this week? The Bulls know that they can already go into hostile territory in the Sunshine State and walk away with a victory. Ask the Seminoles all about that from last year. As for Florida, nothing worked offensively in the first week of the post Tim Tebow era, and we don't know if that's really going to change. What we do know is that someone else needs to be snapping the football. Seven times snaps were left on the ground last week against the Miami Redhawks, resulting in two turnovers. South Florida looked good offensively last week in a hefty win over Stony Brook, but we need to remember that this is still just Stony Brook. HC Skip Holtz knows how to pull upsets in the big game, and it isn't going to get much bigger than this. QB BJ Daniels has been here and done this as well. We think that 16.5 points is a slew of points to be giving a team that could be poised to make a great run in the Swamp. Don't be shocked if this one comes down to the wire.
