Week 7 of the 2019 college football season started off with an absolute beatdown, as No. 4 Ohio State rolled over Northwestern despite playing on the road.

After last night's 52-3 win, the Buckeyes made sure not to become a victim of the dreaded upset.

Other teams might not be so lucky.

ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum has one top team on "upset alert" heading into this afternoon. He thinks the Ole Miss Rebels have what it takes to knock off Texas A&M this afternoon.

"Ole Miss is an underdog at home, but Texas A&M has really struggled on the road," Finebaum said.

The Aggies roll into Oxford, MS as a 6-point favorite. After a long stint at home, Texas A&M might have forgotten what happened last time it went on the road - a loss to Clemson.

Sure, Ole Miss isn't as talented as Clemson, but no SEC contest is easy.
