Conference Championship Week is here, and just two days remain until the field is set for the 2022 College Football Playoff. But for some teams currently in the top four, they first have to take care of business in their respective conference title game to leave no doubt. Otherwise, fierce debates and perhaps even heartbreak could be in store for some teams at the finish line.
247Sports’ Upset Alert is back for one more time this season, and we only have four games as opposed to the traditional five this time provided the slate of games is smaller than a typical weekend. But a reduced lineup of games doesn’t take away from the fact that a handful of favorites can expect to be in a full-blown dogfight Saturday with the stakes higher than ever. It includes two teams who are in the thick of the playoff race.
A reminder: These are not outright projections — they are games in which an upset can reasonably occur should proper conditions arise. Upsets are also defined by betting odds, not rankings, though it happens the higher-ranked team is the betting favorite in the games we highlight this weekend.
Let’s find out who is on upset alert this weekend. All odds are courtesy of Caesars.
