The Program: West Virginia, Texas and Georgia Are on Upset Alert

Michael FelderNational CFB Lead WriterJune 18, 2016

Last week's upset alert saw a flawless effort as Notre Dame, USC and Oregon all staved off upset bids in solid fashion. This week we're heading to the Big 12 and SEC to put some teams in the Top 25 on notice.

West Virginia, Texas and the Georgia Bulldogs draw the eye of the "Upset Alert" as we head into Week 5.

The Mountaineers are facing their first Big 12 test, and it's a barely ranked Baylor squad led by Nick Florence. We'll find out a little about the West Virginia offense, but more importantly we'll see how well their defense is prepared. Can Baylor score enough points to upset Dana Holgorsen's squad?

Our only road team on upset alert, the Longhorns are headed to Stillwater to take on Oklahoma State. The Pokes have put up points, and now we'll see if Texas' newly revamped approach to football can thwart the offensive onslaught Mike Gundy wants to throw at them.

Down in the SEC, the East battle is heating up, and Tennessee is trying to claw their way back into it by getting a win at Georgia this weekend. Tyler Bray and his receivers are the weapons, but will they be enough to beat out the Dawgs' aggressive defense and stout run game?

Like we do every Wednesday here on The Program, we'll take a look at three teams that are on Upset Alert.
