Week 9 saw three more undefeated teams (SMU, Michigan, and San Diego State) bite the dust and playoff projections continue to develop as we head down the home stretch of the 2021 season. We went a mediocre 26-13 last week and felt good about it as there were a bunch of upsets. We are now 238-79 (75%) after nine weeks into the season. We hit the Lock of the Week to run our record to 7-2 for the year. Mississippi State beat Kentucky and Fresno State knocked off San Diego State allowing us to hit both upset specials and improving our record to 9-3 in that category. Here are our win predictions in week 10 for the Top-25 and other interesting matchups. Keep in mind, these are straight up wins not involving the point spreads.
