CFB 24 700 Upset Watch: Week 1 30124154 Upset Watch: Week 1 Upset+Watch%3A+Week+1 CFB

Anyone else REALLY tired of previewing the season? Well, let's get after it. After what could easily be called the most destructive offseason in college football history, the games couldn't get here soon enough. In the first edition of Upset Watch for the 2011 season, I have a feeling that a pair of Texas powers could have some struggles. It will be fun to see how it plays out. -- PETE STELLA (@PeteStellaFOX).

Note: I do not base these rankings on the spread, just location and gut feelings.

CFB 24 700 Upset Watch: Week 1 30124152 No. 14 TCU at Baylor, Friday, 8 p.m. ET No.+14+TCU+at+Baylor%2C+Friday%2C+8+p.m.+ET CFB

TCU won the Rose Bowl last season, then lost a ton of talent. While there are still plenty of good players on the roster, the Horned Frogs are replacing starting QB Andy Dalton and six starters off a very good defense. Baylor, on the other hand, has one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in Robert Griffin III (pictured), several capable receivers and, with the addition of defensive coordinator Phil Bennett from Pitt, a hopefully improved defense from 2010.

CFB 24 700 Upset Watch: Week 1 30126225 Miami (Ohio) at No. 21 Missouri, Saturday, noon ET Miami+%28Ohio%29+at+No.+21+Missouri%2C+Saturday%2C+noon+ET CFB

The Tigers could be a sleeper in the Big 12 this season, but they won't like the way they start the season. While breaking in a new QB, Missouri hosts Mid-American Conference contender Miami. QB Zac Dysert (pictured) is healthy after missing the final four games of 2010 and the Redhawks are itching for some payback after last season's 51-13 blowout in Columbia. After the loss, Miami won eight of its last ten games.

CFB 24 700 Upset Watch: Week 1 30124153 South Florida at No. 16 Notre Dame, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET South+Florida+at+No.+16+Notre+Dame%2C+Saturday%2C+3%3A30+p.m.+ET CFB

Is Notre Dame back or will this just be another season of failed BCS bowl hopes? The Irish welcome in Big East title contender South Florida and coach Skip Holtz, son of Lou, the last ND coach to win a national championship. But the Bulls will give the Irish a season-opening headache under the watch of Touchdown Jesus. QB B.J. Daniels will hurt Notre Dame with his arms and legs and the defense will force Dayne Crist into several critical mistakes.

CFB 24 700 Upset Watch: Week 1 30120986 SMU at No. 8 Texas A&M, Sunday, 7:30 p.m. ET SMU+at+No.+8+Texas+A%26amp%3BM%2C+Sunday%2C+7%3A30+p.m.+ET CFB

The Aggies are leaving, no wait, they are staying, no, really, they have submitted a letter to leave the Big 12 and join a new conference after this academic year. While that is fine and good, Texas A&M still has a season to play and while talented, the Aggies could be distracted by the back-and-forth news cycle. While the offense is loaded, the defense lost all-everything LB Von Miller. And SMU is no pushover, with veteran coach June Jones at the helm and QB Kyle Padron throwing all over the field to the likes of Cole Beasley (pictured, No. 11).
