College Football Predictions 2011: TCU, Other Teams on Week 1 Upset Alert

College football officially begins this Thursday night at 6 p.m. EST with a matchup of Murray State at Louisville. 

While this may not be the most exciting matchup, it's still a starting point.

No. 11-ranked Wisconsin and No. 20-ranked Mississippi State are the only two ranked teams playing on Thursday, but do either have a chance of being upset? 

It's possible. But it's Week 1, anything is possible. That's the beauty of it. 

Highly ranked programs normally schedule "cake" games in order to get their season started correctly, so in that regard, a Week 1 upset is hard to imagine.

But because it's the first week, the first AP Poll has to be taken with a grain of salt, as the "greatness" of these teams has been measured on speculation rather than performance. 

With that in mind, Week 1 upsets seem pretty valid. So who is going to be unlucky this year? 

I've looked at the top 25 according to the AP Poll and measured the likelihood of each team's upset alert.

Let the football and speculation begin.
