Upsets in College Football Today

Tis the season for upsets in college football. Just when you thought you had college football playoff contenders and major bowl game prospects figured out, upsets happen. This is one of the greatest things about college football. No one loves an upset like college football fans around the world. Today was a tricky day, and some teams were absolutely surprised. As I am writing this three ranked teams were knocked off, several are currently losing, and a few barely survived. So let’s take a look at the upsets in college football today.

Ranked Teams that took the “L” Today

#13 North Carolina 17 Georgia Tech 21

Imagine your fanbase coming into the stadium thinking you had a very slim outside shot of the college football playoffs and then losing to 4-6 Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets entered the game starting their third string QB and down several offensive lineman. Everything looked according to plan at halftime until the Yellow Jackets took control of the second half outscoring the Tar Heels 14-0. At least UNC fans can still dream about an Orange Bowl. Georgia Tech is now 5-6 and looking to their instate rivals #1 Georgia next week.

#20 UCF 14 Navy 17

Navy entered the game only beating one ranked team ever in the College Football Playoff. They exited the game with now two wins versus ranked CFP teams. All week UCF fans were telling Twitter they were in competition for the G5 New Years Six Bowl.

#24 North Carolina State 10 Louisville 25

North Carolina State has not been the same since Devin Leary went out. They were already barely hanging on in the Top 25. What was a promising season has went downhill at this point.
