CFB 24 8 Upset Watch: Week 5 31338419 No. 25 Baylor at No. 9 West Virginia, Saturday, 12 p.m. ET (on FX) No.+25+Baylor+at+No.+9+West+Virginia%2C+Saturday%2C+12+p.m.+ET+%28on+FX%29 CFB

The scoreboard at Mountaineer Field better be ready for this one. West Virginia (3-0) is a sharp squad led by QB Geno Smith (at left), but this team has yet to face a real test. Enter Baylor (3-0) and we've got ourselves one great Big 12 opener that really could go either way. I like West Virginia, but it won't be an easy victory. CHANCE FOR UPSET: 3

PETE STELLA (@PeteStellaFOX). NOTE: Picks are based on AP rankings from matchups including Top 25 teams and graded on a 0-5 scale, 5 being a game with the greatest chance of an upset. I do not use the spread, just experience and gut feelings.

CFB 24 8 Upset Watch: Week 5 31338420 Tennessee at No. 5 Georgia, Saturday, 12:30 p.m. ET Tennessee+at+No.+5+Georgia%2C+Saturday%2C+12%3A30+p.m.+ET CFB

Will the Vols (3-1) catch the host Bulldogs (4-0) looking ahead to next week's showdown with South Carolina? Georgia is another top team that has yet to be really challenged so far this season, and Tennessee has the skill and speed to take an early lead in Athens. But do the Vols have the horses to finish strong in this SEC race? CHANCE FOR UPSET: 2

CFB 24 8 Upset Watch: Week 5 31338421 No. 14 Ohio State at No. 20 Michigan State, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET No.+14+Ohio+State+at+No.+20+Michigan+State%2C+Saturday%2C+3%3A30+p.m.+ET CFB

Finally, a real (and road) test for the Buckeyes (4-0). Michigan State (3-1) will be ready for Braxton Miller (pictured), and make no mistake, if Ohio State struggles in East Lansing, the Spartans could turn this game into a blowout. Le'Veon Bell will be a huge test for the Buckeyes' defense as these teams battle in hopes of bringing some street cred back to the Big Ten. CHANCE FOR UPSET: 5

CFB 24 8 Upset Watch: Week 5 31336783 No. 15 TCU at SMU, Saturday, 7 p.m. ET No.+15+TCU+at+SMU%2C+Saturday%2C+7+p.m.+ET CFB

Is this a stretch? Of course, but any given team can win on any given Saturday! TCU (3-0) has exhibited flashes of greatness, and on paper should not struggle much with SMU (1-2). But the Mustangs get this one at home — watch out for a big special-teams play to swing the momentum (blocked kick anyone?) — and that in itself should help SMU stay alive, at least, for a little bit, in this hard-hitting matchup. CHANCE FOR UPSET: 4

CFB 24 8 Upset Watch: Week 5 31338424 No. 12 Texas at Oklahoma State, Saturday, 7 p.m. ET (on FOX) No.+12+Texas+at+Oklahoma+State%2C+Saturday%2C+7+p.m.+ET+%28on+FOX%29 CFB

Will Texas (3-0) suffer the same fate as Nebraska, USC and Oklahoma as high-ranking teams that have been upset on the FOX Game of the Week? Malcolm Brown (pictured) and the Longhorns are sure to be tested by Oklahoma State (2-1), but with the uncertainties at quarterback, will the Cowboys be able to hang with Texas once the first-half jitters go away? This should be a fun one to watch. CHANCE FOR UPSET: 4

CFB 24 8 Upset Watch: Week 5 31340520 No. 18 Oregon State at Arizona, Saturday, 10 p.m. ET No.+18+Oregon+State+at+Arizona%2C+Saturday%2C+10+p.m.+ET CFB

Oregon State has two wins on the season, and both are upsets. The Beavers (2-0) are back in the AP Top 25, and as a reward, get to face Rich Rodriguez's wounded Arizona (3-1) team fresh off a beatdown from Oregon. QB Sean Mannion (pictured) and Oregon State may not have the firepower to score at will like the Ducks do, but the Wildcats need to be ready for one of the nation's hottest teams. CHANCE FOR UPSET: 2
