College football: Five teams that should be on upset alert this week

Five teams besides South Carolina that should be on upset alert this week and why.

Five other teams that should be on upset alert this week and why:

1. Texas A&M at Arkansas: The Razorbacks are vastly overmatched, but the Ags weren't a great road team last year until they got to Tuscaloosa. And Razorback fans will be jacked up for A&M's first trip to the Ozarks since 1990.

2. Stanford at Washington State: Don't look now, but Mike Leach has a defense. If he ever finds a quarterback …

3. Wisconsin at Ohio State: The Buckeyes are the Big Ten's best team, but the Badgers have created a culture of winning.

4. Ole Miss at Alabama: This once was what Bama-LSU is now. A battle for Southern supremacy. But that was almost half a century ago. Now Ole Miss is showing signs of life with an array of offensive talent.

5. Arizona at Washington: UofA is untested, but Rich Rodriguez always has an offense. The Huskies don't want to get into a shootout.
