Week 5 of the 2019 college football season is quickly approaching and there are a couple of big-time contests this weekend.

What potential upsets are in store in Week 5?

Here are the three top 25 teams on "Upset Alert" in Week 5.

No. 7 Auburn vs. Mississippi State

The Tigers got a huge win last weekend, taking down Texas A&M in College Station. However, this is still an Auburn team led by a true freshman quarterback in Bo Nix.

Mississippi State is 3-1 and starting to get a little stronger. The Bulldogs could cover the 10.5-point spread and perhaps make this one even closer.

No. 5 Ohio State at Nebraska

The Buckeyes have dominated the Huskers in recent matchups, though last year's game in Columbus was a close one.

Nebraska has the offense to put up a lot of points on Ohio State's defense, but only if Adrian Martinez can take care of the ball. The Huskers have been fumble-heavy in recent weeks and that needs to stop.

No. 10 Notre Dame vs. No. 21 Virginia

The Fighting Irish are coming off a tough road loss at Georgia. Notre Dame played the Bulldogs much tougher than expected, taking Kirby Smart's team to the wire.

Brian Kelly's team should rebound just fine against Virginia, though the Fighting Irish could have a hungover, letdown game following the Georgia loss.
