College Football Upset Watch: Week 5

By Buffalo66

Another weekly edition of the upset watch! Lots of conference play getting started. Are you ready for some big plays?

Each week I get to highlight the games that have "live dogs." If they can pull off the upset, those juicy odds will fatten your wallet. Keep your eye on these games:

South Carolina at Central Florida (+235). Steve Spurrier takes the Gamecocks to face a very healthy, undefeated Knights squad in Orlando. UCF has just come off an upset road win at Penn State. The better prepared team should win this one.

Arizona (+320) at Washington. A lot of noise has been made about the powerful Huskies offense. However, the Wildcats have one of the nation's best running backs in Ka’Deem Carey. Arizona hasn't played a top tier FBS opponent yet, but they haven't been challenged either. This could be an explosive, high scoring affair.

Colorado (+300) at Oregon State. Although the Beavers boast the nation's leading passer in Sean Mannion, this is a team that cannot close anyone out defensively. They also lost to an FCS opponent at home. One good special teams play by the Buffaloes could turn the game.
