USF isn’t the only team who gets a home game with a Power 5 school this week.

(DISCLAIMER: This contest is for entertainment purposes only. No actual money is being wagered.)

In addition to Florida State@USF, this week features several other games where a Group of 5 school hosts a Power 5 school: Texas Christian-SMU; Syracuse-UConn; Mississippi State-UMass; and Louisville-Marshall. In addition, NY6 contender Houston is at Texas State. And Central Michigan is actually favored on the road against woeful ACC school Virginia.

There's also a very good matchup nobody's talking about: Georgia Southern is at Western Michigan. The winner of that game could go undefeated, and become a contender for the Group of 5's (and by extension’ the AAC champion’s) bid in a major bowl game. Especially if the winner is WMU, which has already beaten two Big Ten teams, and is getting national buzz.
