Here at Cappers Info, we are taking a weekly look at the teams that could be ones ripe to pull off some major upsets! Check out the potentially ugly dogs that could come up and bite you in the butt in you aren't careful for the first week of college football betting action!

Pittsburgh Panthers (+135 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Utah Utes, Thursday, 8:30 ET: The Panthers are lined at +3 in a rematch of the 2005 Fiesta Bowl in which the Utes beat them down 35-7. With RB Dion Lewis ready to rock and roll, the Panthers could be a scary pick not only to win this game, but to capture the Big East crown and potentially even the BCS National Championship as well. The Utes don't know what is about to hit them in this one. There's more on this game coming later this week…

Toledo Rockets (+500 at Diamond Sportsbook) vs. Arizona Wildcats, Friday, 8:00 ET: QB Austin Dantin is ready to prove himself as a legitimate threat to be one of the best players in the MAC in this, his sophomore season, and there would be no better way to go about that than in the opening game of the year at home against the Cats. This is a long, long road trip for HC Mike Stoops' men, and traveling across the country heading into the Glass Bowl is never a fun task. Though several key pieces are gone from last year's team, this is still an offense that averaged 437.9 yards per game last year, the 13th best mark in the land. Ask Colorado how easy it is for a West Coast school to come over to Toledo and walk out with a win in a nationally televised game… The Buffs were blown out 54-38 here last year. We'll take our chances at +500 that the Rockets can strike twice.

Connecticut Huskies (+130 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Michigan Wolverines, Saturday, 3:30 ET: Prepare for the Big House to burn! The Huskies are out to make a name for themselves and for the Big East, and they can do so by making Big Blue and their head coach Rich Rodriguez very uncomfortable with the start of their season. It appears as though Rodriguez is going to try to use both QB Tate Forcier and QB Denard Robinson to lead the Wolverines to victory in this one, but he should probably be focused in on trying to stop UConn RB Jordan Todman instead. This is a prospective 1,500+ yard rusher in the making, and Michigan's defense ranked 92nd in the land last year on the ground. Don't be shocked to find the Huskies winning this one and potentially winning it in big, big fashion.

Virginia Tech Hokies (+115 at Diamond Sportsbook) vs. Boise State Broncos, Monday, 8:00 ET: There will be plenty of discussion about this game from now until Monday night when these two behemoths kick it off at FedEx Field, but here at Cappers Info, we are promptly going to call for the upset of the boys from the Smurf Turf. Boise State has had no history whatsoever succeeding when on the East Coast, as their most recent visit against a BCS team here was at Georgia, where the Bulldogs absolutely smacked the Broncos down Between the Hedges. Virginia Tech is a big time defensive team, and with QB Tyrod Taylor playing in his senior season, this would be the biggest triumph in quite a few years for HC Frank Beamer.
