Week 10 of the college football season features plenty of compelling matchups, but which teams are poised for upsets? Here are this weekend’s picks and predictions:

No. 8 Georgia vs. No. 6 Florida: Georgia 24-21

The Bulldogs haven’t shown much bite this season. It’s now or never.

Miami at Florida State: Miami 20-16

Neither of these former powers can be counted on, but Miami has the better defense.

No. 22 Kansas State at Kansas: Kansas State 34-21

Les Miles got his first Big 12 win at Kansas last week, but the Jayhawks will be humbled again.

Texas Christian at Oklahoma State: Oklahoma State 35-31

The Horned Frogs and Cowboys won big games last weekend and will battle until the end.

USC star receiver Michael Pittman Jr. will be on the same field Saturday with his younger brother Mycah when No. 7 Oregon comes to the Coliseum.

No. 9 Utah at Washington: Washington 23-20

The Huskies had Oregon on the ropes two weeks ago and couldn’t finish. They’ll figure out a way this time.

Oregon State at Arizona: Oregon State 38-31

The Wildcats are going in the wrong direction, and the Beavers are spunky enough to surprise.

Virginia at North Carolina: Virginia 20-17

Nobody has played more tight games than North Carolina. This will end in more heartbreak.

No. 15 Southern Methodist at No. 24 Memphis: Memphis 42-34

With the nation watching, the Tigers will take a step toward a New Year’s Six bowl.

No. 7 Oregon at USC: USC 31-27

The Trojans’ march toward the Pac-12 championship game continues in Clay Helton’s finest hour.

Colorado at UCLA: UCLA 35-23

The Bruins will keep momentum going and can now feasibly make a bowl game.

Last week: 6-4; Season: 60-30
