Upset alert! Upset alert!

You can bet the cry will go out among some college football sages who think the Gamecocks will be prime for an upset playing at unbeaten Central Florida.

It's easy to understand the logic.

The Knights have knocked off Akron 38-7, which in turn almost beat Michigan. Then UCF routinely trounced Florida International 38-0 and followed up with a 34-31 victory at Penn State.

Even though the victory carries an asterisk (*probation-ravaged Penn State), any victory over the Nittany Lions at their place is another notch in the belt for Central Florida, a program carrying big-time aspirations.

South Carolina is 2-1 following a season-opening victory over North Carolina, a 41-30 loss at Georgia and a 35-25 home victory against Vanderbilt.

Both teams enter following an off week.
