College Football 2011, Preweek 9

While the top two teams (LSU and Alabama) are idle this week, there are still plenty of chances for upsets. #4 (Stanford) squares off against #20 (USC), #9 (Michigan State) faces #13 (Nebraska), #10 (Kansas State) hosts #11 (Oklahoma). In addition, there are several games in which an upset is a possibility: #12 Wisconsin at Ohio State, #21 Penn State host Illinois, and (I’m hoping) #25 West Virginia will be at Rutgers.

If not mentioned, all games are on Saturday.
