Week 7’s college football upset picks are low, but Georgia, Oklahoma State, and others are still on the bubble.
In the 2021 college football season, even Alabama is vulnerable to upsets. Call it arrogance, but I didn’t even put Alabama on upset watch last week since Texas A&M didn’t have a chance. Well, thanks to a remarkable Zach Calzada performance, the Aggies were able to end a number of Bama’s winning streaks. Week 7 has arrived.
With seven teams rated in the Top 25 not in action, the Week 7 slate is admittedly thin in terms of Top 25 action. However, none of these clubs are immune to being placed on upset watch this week.
With some strong hitters in danger of losing to an unranked or lower-ranked club on Saturday, we’re making our Week 7 college football upset picks. Also, congratulations to Oklahoma (against. TCU), Ole Miss (vs. Tennessee), and NC State (vs. Boston College) for just missing out on this list.

College football upset pick Week 7, No. 5: Oklahoma State Cowboys
It almost feels like a cheat to put Oklahoma State on upset alert for their trip to Austin. After all, Texas is a 5.5-point favorite in this game at home. As a result, the lower-ranked side is expected to win this game, according to the oddsmakers. However, this qualifies as an upset choice based on the criteria of a lower-ranked team winning.
As far as it is concerned, this should still be a fascinating game. For one thing, it will be interesting to see how the Longhorns respond under Steve Sarkisian after blowing a huge lead in the Red River Showdown. Furthermore, this may be a stylistically engaging battle.

Texas’ offensive has been known for preaching “all throttle, no brakes,” and they have the horses to back it up with Bijan Robinson and Xavier Worthy. Oklahoma State, on the other hand, has quietly been one of the finest defensive teams in college football. With an offense that still appears to be finding its feet (though playing the Longhorns may help), this might be an intriguing battle of strengths.
The Longhorns, on the other hand, have a good chance to win this game on Saturday if they can regroup and get the better of the Cowboys’ defense. They have a superior offensive and, quite honestly, superior talent. But, as is so frequently the case in Texas, it’s all about execution in these crucial times.
