Biggest Money-line Upsets

Iowa (+1203) vs. Michigan 

Freshman kicker Keith Duncan made a 33-yard field goal as time expired and Iowa upended No. 3 Michigan 14-13. The loss might not hurt the Wolverines, if the team wins out it could still make the College Football Playoff.

Pittsburgh (+991) at Clemson

Deshaun Watson threw three interceptions, Pitt stuffed Clemson on fourth down at midfield and Chris Blewitt hit a 48-yard field goal with six second remaining to upset the Tigers 43-42. It was Clemson’s first loss to an unranked opponent in five seasons and ended the team’s 21 game home winning streak. 

Georgia Tech (+447) at Virginia Tech

The Hokies and their fan base were pumped for this game, the team entered with a chance to clinch the ACC’s Coastal Division. However, Georgia Tech’s backup quarterback Matthew Jordan rushed for 121 yards and two touchdowns leading the Yellow Jackets to a surprising 30-20 win. Virginia Tech committed four turnovers in the loss.

UL Monroe (+401) at Georgia State

Running back Thomas Koufie carried the ball 31 times for 201 yards and five scores as the Warhawks of Louisiana-Monroe topped Georgia State 37-23. UL Monroe was a 12.5 point underdog in the game.

Washington vs. USC

Something had to give, the Huskies were undefeated and the Trojans were on a five game winning streak. USC got the better of Washington Saturday, Sam Darnold threw for 287 yards and two touchdowns in a 26-13 upset. The Men of Troy were +284 money-line underdogs. The loss puts Washington’s chance of reaching the College Football Playoff in doubt.

USC met all the qualifications and came through for us not only covering the spread but winning the game outright.
