Upsets are the best part of college sports. The college game takes unpredictability to a different level.

It is tough to think that your team is going to go into each Saturday and always survive without an upset scare.

Here are three teams that guarantee upsets this weekend.


Texas vs. Oklahoma

Oklahoma certainly looks like a better team but Texas is surging and can never be counted out.

The Longhorns look like they are surging right now. Case McCoy has stepped into the starting role and looks fully capable of leading this Texas team.

There is something nostalgic seeing McCoy and Shipley connect. Those names were meant to be wearing Texas colors and leading the team to big wins.

The rivalry showdown in Dallas will be a huge upset to Oklahoma but will make everyone believers in Texas.


Uconn vs. WVU

West Virginia just appears overrated this season. The second big factor is that Uconn was the team that upset WVU last season.

WVU had a very ugly loss to Uconn and will be brought back down to earth once again by the Huskies.

Uconn will be behind the strong running of freshman Lyle McCombs.

The Huskies day will start and end with the run. They will look to humble the Mountaineers and take them from their high horse.


Missouri vs. Kansas State

Kansas State enters this week with a surprising No. 20 ranking. This game really will not be too much of an upset though.

Missouri is a very strong team and only appears to be finding their true groove now.

Mizzou has the eighth-best running game in the nation and when teamed up with the maturing play of James Franklin they will have all they need to push KSU back on their heels.

Mizzou has two losses on the season but they have been to very quality teams. They will now dish out Kansas State their first loss.
