When the Devy Breaks travels the college football landscape, keeping you up-to-date on last week’s results, previewing the big upcoming tilts, and providing updated devy rankings.One of the best things about college football is that no matter how dominant some teams look — I’m looking at you, Alabama — there’s always a chance we see upsets. Last weekend was no exception. BYU traveled to Wisconsin as 23-point underdogs but won outright 24-21, severely damaging the Badgers’ playoff hopes. LSU was a 10-point underdog at Auburn but managed a 22-21 win, altering the landscape in the SEC West. Troy won as double-digit underdogs against Nebraska in Lincoln sending new head coach Scott Frost to an 0-2 start. Oklahoma State, San Diego State, and North Texas also secured upset wins. Looking at this week, Florida State will look to stop the bleeding against an excellent Northen Illinois defense at home. Kansas State goes on the road against West Virginia in a battle of opposing offensive philosophies highlighted by Mountaineers’ quarterback Will Grier. And Oregon welcomes Stanford to Eugene for a primetime game featuring two premier talents in Bryce Love and Justin Herbert. With nearly a quarter of the regular season in the books, things are starting to come into focus.
