College Football Week 1 Upset Watch/Picks

Houston over Oklahoma
I picked Houston to beat Florida State last year and believe they can carry momentum into this season and start the fall off win a huge win over the Sooners, which would look really good on a resume for a Group of 5 team not only trying to crash the Playoff but making their case for a spot in the Big 12. The game is in Houston. Should be a great one.

South Carolina State over UCF
UCF was winless last year. The pressure is on the Golden Knights to start this season off with a win.

Southern Miss over Kentucky
Last year the Golden Eagles were much improved playing with decent showings against Mississippi State, Nebraska, and Washington. Kentucky started strong last year, but really struggled down the stretch. The pressure is on Mark Stoops and the Wildcats to win this game. 
Northern Iowa over Iowa State
The Panthers are a solid FCS team and have knocked off FBS teams before. They have nothing to lose as the pressure is on the Cyclones to beat their instate rival. 
Ole Miss over Florida State
The Seminoles were arguably the most overrated team in college football last season. They start the season against the Rebels in Orlando and need to prove they are worth their number #4 ranking. Chad Kelly and company will be ready for the challenge.
