Week 3 in the NCAA's 2015 football campaign saw a myriad of upsets, such as Ole Miss' second consecutive win over the Crimson Tide.
Stanford went down to USC and beat the Trojans once again – but this time the Trojans were ranked #6 in the nation. Northern Illinois almost came back and beat #1 Ohio State, another lesson that you can't fall asleep against any opposition.
Week 4 only features two tilts between top 25 teams, but there are still a number of juicy matchups that will help determine conference leads – and could feature some big upsets. Let's look at the top games this week.
#22 BYU at Michigan (12 pm ET, Saturday 9/26) – take BYU to win
Central Michigan at #2 Michigan State (12 pm ET, Saturday 9/26) – take Michigan State as long as the line isn't more than 25
#8 LSU at Syracuse (12 pm ET, Saturday 9/26) – pick LSU to win
#20 Georgia Tech at Duke (12 pm ET, Saturday 9/26) – pick Duke if you see a line higher than 14 favoring Tech
Southern at #7 Georgia (12 pm ET, Saturday 9/26) – pick Georgia to win
Rice at #5 Baylor (3 pm ET, Saturday 9/26) – pick Baylor to win if the line is 30 or less.
#24 Oklahoma State at Texas (3:30 pm ET, Saturday 9/26) – pick Texas to cover if the line is 12 or more.
Western Michigan at #1 Ohio State (3:30 pm ET, Saturday 9/26) – pick Ohio State to win
Massachusetts at #6 Notre Dame (3:30 pm ET, Saturday 9/26) – pick the Irish to win

Let's take a look at that tilt between TCU and Texas Tech. You wouldn't think that the #3 team in the nation would have this much intrigue to it. However, TCU is coming off a matchup with SMU in which the unranked (and almost FCS-quality in 2014) Mustangs came back to trail the Horned Frogs by five points in the fourth quarter.
The SMU offense threw the ball all over the field against TCU and gave the Frogs everything they wanted. On the other side, Texas Tech just got back from delivering a whipping to Arkansas up in Fayettevile, 35-24. Lubbock is always a difficult place to play for the visiting side, and the Red Raiders crowd will be raucous this year as the Horned Frogs come to town. TCU's hopes for the College Football Playoff remain alive, but they can't suffer many more stretches like they had during the third and some of the fourth quarters against SMU.
The Frogs were up 42-17 in the third quarter before surrendering 20 straight points. TCU did score the last 14 points, but Tech has a passing offense that is better than SMU's, led by Patrick Mahomes. Neither team has a good secondary, so this could definitely resemble a video game in its scoring.
