On Saturday morning, college football pundit Paul Finebaum was a guest on ESPN's SportsCenter before Week 5 of the season.

Per usual, his appearances on Saturday morning come with a few predictions.

During the course of his time on the show, the SEC analyst revealed his "Upset Special" for the week's action of games.

So, who did Finebaum put on upset alert this weekend?

He thinks Utah will have its hands full with Washington State today.

The Utes enter the game as a 6-point favorite, but lost last weekend at an unranked USC team starting its third-string quarterback. Now the Cougars' vaunted offense comes rolling into town after hanging 63 points - in a loss - to UCLA.

Utah boasts one of the best defenses in the country, but the Utes were exposed slightly last weekend.

Washington State and Utah kick off at 10:00 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on FS1.
