What's your Week 5 upset pick? The FootballScoop staff weighs in

Tommy Tuberville

My oh my would it be entertaining if these upsets came through this week, especially Scott's pick.

This season: Scott (2-2), Doug (1-3), Zach (1-3)

Scott: Cincinnati over Ohio State


Fifteen point dog, on the road, at night in the 'Shoe. Crazy to think Ohio State could lose twice, at home, under the lights...right? We'll here comes Tubs, and his 2-0 record vs Urban. I think it will take forcing (and capitalizing on) some turnovers and a little of Tubs' magic sauce; but crazier things have happened. For Urban's sanity, it better not (Ohio State hasn't lost to an in-state opponent in nearly 100 years).

Zach: Duke at Miami


Not only is Duke 4-0 this season, David Cutcliffe's Devils have won eight regular season games in a row. That streak will end at some point, but let's ride it out one more week. I'll take Duke as a bet against Miami and its 65th-ranked pass efficiency defense and 65th ranked rush defense.

Doug: Missouri over South Carolina


Missouri is coming off a shootout loss to Indiana, and we really haven't seen which South Carolina team is going to show up week to week. Which team does Spurrier have; the one that got thumped by Texas A&M, or the one that beat Georgia? Mizzou will be hungrier for a win than the Gamecocks will this weekend. Considering our cumulative records up until this point, a smart man would have waited to see Scott's pick and then piggy back off that, but I'm fairly confident in my pick
