The Vanderbilt Commodores are walloping the Mississippi Rebels 30-0 right now. That sounds like an upset, doesn't it? Vandy's the kid the SEC copies its test answers from, while Ole Miss is the big school in a football-insane state. But Vandy frequently beats the Rebels -- four times in the past six years, in fact -- though Ole Miss blog Red Cup Rebellion attributes the phenomenon largely to scheduling.
Elsewhere in Scores That Sound Like Upsets But Probably Aren't:
Defending national champion and No. 21 Auburn is behind by nine points to the unranked Clemson Tigers. But Clemson came one fluke play short of taking Auburn to double-overtime last year. (And Cam Newton's gone.)
The West Virginia Mountaineers are up, 34-31, on the Maryland Terrapins. That might sound like an upset to true believers in the power of Under Armour. It's not. A Terps win wouldn't really be that big of an upset either, even though WVU is ranked. /watering on every parade
The early afternoon's only true upset alerts: Penn State is down, 10-7, to Temple, and TCU is in an early 17-14 shootout with Louisiana-Monroe.
