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 7 of college football betting action!

Underdog Pick #1: Army Black Knights (+230 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Rutgers Scarlet Knights, Saturday, 2:00 ET: The Black Knights know that they need at least one more victory to make it to a bowl game for the first time in seemingly forever, and this seems like a prototypical spot for that. Rutgers has already lost one game it had no business losing this year when it dropped to the Tulane Green Wave at home. The Scarlet Knights are going with QB Chas Dodd under center this week, which could be a hassle against one of the better pass defenses in the country. Rutgers' defense is getting worse and worse every week, and RB Jordan Todman rumbled for 123 yards on the ground last week in a win against the Connecticut Huskies. The Black Knights are averaging 32.3 points per game and are putting together 274.3 yards per game on the ground. No one really cares in this triple option offense whether anyone can throw the ball or not, as demonstrated by the dead last ranked passing game in the country at just 68.0 yards per game. Still, this is a favorable matchup for a team that has already won three road games this year, including one against that same Tulane squad that won in Piscataway the week before. Don't be shocked if Army takes care of this knightly battle in East Rutherford.

Underdog Pick #2: Kentucky Wildcats (+180 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ South Carolina Gamecocks, Saturday 6:00 ET: It's not that we really believe that the Wildcats have the better team, but we know that this is the worst potential scheduling spot in the world for the Gamecocks. South Carolina is coming off of the biggest win in the school's history, an upset of the No. 1 team in the country, the Alabama Crimson Tide. Now, it has to go on the road against a Kentucky team that it has beaten about a million straight times. The Wildcats played a whale of a game last week against the Auburn Tigers and nearly took down a Top 10 team in the process. HC Joker Phillips really has this team playing hard right now, and Kentucky has a bowl game in its sights this year. A win over South Carolina wouldn't just send the Cats one step closer to a bowl, but could keep it in the race in the SEC East to boot. Also, take notice of this line… Auburn beat South Carolina by the narrowest of margins at home, then turned around and nearly lost to the Wildcats last week… Yet the line is a tad shorter this week than it was last week… Does someone know something that we don't know? The Cats are going to scratch in this game.

Underdog Pick #3: Virginia Cavaliers (+200 at Diamond Sportsbook) vs. North Carolina Tar Heels, Saturday, 6:00 ET: The Tar Heels are starting to get their acts together, but unfortunately for them, so are the Cavvies. UVA had a great second half against the Florida State Seminoles two weeks ago at home and ended up playing reasonably well against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets last week. North Carolina hasn't allowed more than 17 points in a game in its L/3, but we think that changes on Saturday. QB Marc Verica might need to play the game of his life to get the job done, but it is a very distinct possibility, especially without a win against an FBS teams on the season, that the Cavs pull off a tremendous upset to shake the ACC.

Underdog Pick #4: Arkansas Razorbacks (+150 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Auburn Tigers, Saturday, 3:30 ET: We've saved the absolutely best for last. The Tigers have just narrowly survived defeats in the past, and we think that these cats are running out of lives. Auburn is a relatively two dimensional team. QB Cam Newton does most of his damage from outside the pocket, and when he does that, he has the ability to rocket the ball down the field. RB Michael Dyer and RB Onterio McCalebb makes up for the other dimension of this squad. Arkansas isn't going to just get run over, which was demonstrated by the fact that it hung tough with the Alabama Crimson Tide three weeks ago. The pass defense for Auburn has been iffy this year at best, ranking No. 91 in the nation at 239.2 yards per game. QB Ryan Mallett must be licking his chops. He has the ability to come on the road and redeem himself for throwing those three picks against Alabama. Don't be shocked if he makes it to the 350 yard barrier, and if he does that, the Hogs are going to be very capable of pulling off this upset.
