I called Washington losing to UCLA already - here are 4 more ranked teams that could go down this weekend.

No. 4 Michigan at Iowa

Yes, the Hawkeyes are about as anemic on offense as anyone in the country. But they can defend with the best of them, and they're insanely effective against Top 5 opponents at home - they've won seven of their last eight against opponents ranking in the top five in Kinnick.

Texas A&M at Mississippi State

We've seen the Aggies struggle offensively this season at times, but it is going to be critical that they pick it up in Starkville. Everybody knows that if Will Rogers and Mike Leach's offense can find a rhythm, they're hard to keep up with.

No. 25 Kansas State vs. Texas Tech

The Wildcats can ill-afford to rest on their laurels after their upset victory in Norman last weekend, as they've got a dangerous Texas Tech team coming into the Little Apple this weekend. We just saw the Red Raiders take down Texas, so it's going to be incumbent upon Adrian Martinez to not turn the ball over and give them extra opportunities to score.

No. 18 Oklahoma at TCU

I think this is the least likely of the matchups to turn into an upset as the Sooners are going to be chomping at the bit to get back out after their loss to Kansas State. But TCU can put up some points and have the best wide receiver that Oklahoma has faced all season in Quentin Johnston.
