College football analyst Ralph Russo dropped his score predictions for the weekend's slate of games. The Associated Press analyst predicted a few upsets, but one stood out above the others.

Russo thinks a top-five team will lose this weekend. In his score predictions, Russo tabbed LSU as the top-five team that will lose this weekend.

The Tigers host the Rebels' high-flying offense in Baton rouge on Saturday night and if Russo is right, they'll be walking out with their first loss.

Here's Russo's prediction for the game:

Two FBS quarterbacks with at least 100 attempts have yet to throw an interception and LSU's Joe Burrow is one of them (Boise State's Brett Rypien is the other) ... OLE MISS 31-28.

LSU enters as a 12-point favorite in the game.

A three-point win for the Rebels would be huge for the team's resume. Ole Miss sits at 3-1 on the season with the team's only loss coming at the hands of the Crimson Tide - Alabama won 62-7.

Can the Rebels pull the upset?
