The Week 7 slate is so full of great matchups, the best upset alerts also happen to be the best games of the college football weekend.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get much better, college football decided to outdo itself this week.

The beauty of Week 7 is in the many great matchups between relatively evenly-matched teams.

To be honest, that means true upsets may be hard to find. In fact, there are multiple matchups this week with the higher-ranked team coming in as an underdog. However, oddsmakers’ lines aren’t the end-all-be-all.

So, these are the five teams on alert:

Red Flags: 5 college football teams on upset alert in Week 7

No. 8 Oklahoma State vs. No. 13 TCU

As previously said, there are matchups in the Top 25 this week with a higher-ranked underdog. That’s the case with Oklahoma State and TCU with the Horned Frogs favored at home.

Even so, it would be an upset for TCU to unseat the No. 8 team in the country.

While the Cowboys came into the season with expectations to compete for the Big 12 title, TCU has been a surprise in the conference. They’re 5-0, they’ve got Max Duggan playing like a dark horse Heisman candidate and they’re coming off a win over even-bigger-surprise Kansas.

SP+ has this as a literal toss-up. Both sides have a 50 percent win probability. It’s that close.
