Could this be the start of an upset binge?
West Virginia, which got shut out last week by Maryland, has rebounded to scoring a somewhat shocking 30-21 win over No. 11 Oklahoma State.
The Mountaineers (3-2) overcame some shaky clock management in the end to get the Big 12 win in Morgantown.
Oklahoma State (3-1) is the first ranked team to fall on what you might call "Scramble Mode Saturday."
No. 12 South Carolina was not one of the early casualties, but the Gamecocks had to rally from a 10-0 halftime deficit to beat Central Florida, 28-25, in Orlando.
South Carolina scored 28 straight points to start the second half but then had to hold off a late Golden Knights rally.
Other surprising scores involving non-AQ over AQ: Northern Illinois crushed Purdue, 55-24, to give the Mid American Conference an emphatic win over the Big Ten. Eastern Carolina, from Conference USA, also handed North Carolina (ACC) an embarrassing defeat.
In other potential upset to follow, unranked Boston College is leading No. 8 Florida State, 14-3, late in the first quarter. It's the first time BC has had a lead against Florida State since 2010.
