Can we just take a moment and talk about the epic week of upsets we had in Week 11 of college football?

Clemson fell to Pittsburgh, undefeated Washington was taken out of that category by Southern California — which topped last week’s upset watch — Michigan lost by a point to Iowa, Auburn was stunned by SEC East rival Georgia, and Ole Miss scraped by Texas A&M.

And last night – as predicted right here – Houston demolished No. 5 Louisville, 36-10.

With those six top-10 teams all taking losses in a single week it is evident that nothing is written in stone. Teams are playing with nothing to lose and others are at risk of blowing their seasons — but that’s what makes sports so great, right?

Let’s take a look at the other potential upset to watch for in Week 12 of college football:

1Washington State at Colorado
3:30 p.m. ET Saturday

Washington State is on an eight-game winning streak, which is the reason 9-1 Boise State is ahead of 10-0 Western Michigan in the CFP rankings.

The Cougars hope to move closer to a Pac-12 North title while Colorado continues an unexpected stampede toward a Pac-12 South championship.

Both quarterbacks will put on a show this Saturday as Luke Falk sits at No. 2 in FBS passing yards on the season and Sefo Liufau is completing more than 67% of his passing attempts.

It might come done to whether Washington State can overcome Colorado’s defense and possibly this:
