None of these matches were "upsets". Pretty obvious from their struggles in earlier matches that Georgia and Alabama were overseeded, and also obvious that Stanford and UCLA are underseeded. Pretty useless ranking system when the top 4 teams lose in the quarters and none would be considered upsets by knowledgable observers.
