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 Week 6 of college football betting action!

Underdog Pick #1: Florida State Seminoles (OTB at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Miami Hurricanes, Saturday, 8:00 ET: When this game opened up earlier in the week, Florida State was a 6.5 point underdog. There are still some outlets that have this game on the board, but right now, QB Jacory Harris is up in the air with a shoulder injury, and if he can't play, this line will move dramatically. We're sort of opening that Harris does play, giving us a more favorable line. The Seminoles are absolutely legit this year, and they have proved it in ACC play by blowing away both Virginia and Wake Forest. This would be the biggest win in the Jimbo Fisher era, one that badly needs to get off the ground in a hurry to live up to expectations. The Canes have been very, very impressive during this rough stretch of games, and though they aren't usually candidates to end up losing their second home game of the season, Florida State provides a significantly different challenge. The garnet and gold remember that loss suffered last year at Doak Campbell Stadium. Payback could be a you know what on Saturday night.

Underdog Pick #2: Colorado Buffaloes (+400 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Missouri Tigers, Saturday 7:00 ET: Now we'll get the chance to see whether the Buffs are real or not. HC Dan Hawkins knows that he needs to string together at least four wins in conference play this year, and this very much so a winnable fixture that could make the Big XII North race very, very interesting. Though we know that the Tigers are still undefeated and ranked, we aren't so sure that they belong there. The schedule hasn't been particularly difficult, and though there have been a few stingy teams show up, none are probably as strong as Colorado really is. If the Buffaloes hold onto the football, this is a very, very winnable game, and we'll take our chances that it will happen at least one out of five times for us to break even. Here's to QB Blaine Gabbert not choosing now to go off on one of his patented 450+ yard passing tirades.

Underdog Pick #3: Pittsburgh Panthers (+200 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Saturday, 3:30 ET: If the Panthers are legitimate contenders in the Big East this year, they certainly are underrated in this game by the oddsmakers. The more we watch Notre Dame, the more we aren't so sure of their abilities. Yes, they notched another cover last week by beating Boston College, but who doesn't beat the Eagles nowadays? U-Pitt is still feeling the effects of that beat down suffered at the hands of the Hurricanes, but in "The U" is that good, losses to Miami and Utah shouldn't cause you to shy away. QB Tino Sunseri has to be getting better just by experience, and if RB Dion Lewis comes back into the lineup, it will make the offense just that much better. Don't be overly shocked to see the Panthers come out and take care of the Golden Domers with ease, especially if that front four can really put pressure on QB Dayne Crist in the pocket.

Underdog Pick #4: USC Trojans (+300 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Stanford Cardinal, Saturday, 8:00 ET: Losing last week to the Washington Huskies will clearly do one of two things for the Trojans. They'll either wake up and remember that they still have over half of a season to play, or they'll fold up shop remembering that they don't have a bowl game to go chase after. We know that this team is good enough to win this game, just as Stanford was good enough to win back in LA last year. However, that victory could be a cause for concern for HC Jim Harbaugh's crew. The Men of Troy aren't usually ones to forget about defeats easily, though things are clearly different this year. We have to remember the psyche of the Cardinal as well. Just how well will they bounce back after they not only blew a 21-3 lead against the Oregon Ducks last week, but were ultimately obliterated? We'll take our chances that the upset very well could be in the cards, knowing that the Trojans could legitimately get their doors blown off as well.
