Charlie StrongJohn Sommers II/Icon SMILouisville should be on upset alert this weekend against Pittsburgh.

I had a 2-2 split with my bold predictions last week. While Georgia and Texas, in particular, disappointed me, Florida beat LSU to improve my toss-up game record to 5-1, and the struggling Oklahoma offense proved me right by putting up 380 yards and 41 points against the NCAA's No. 1 defense (statistically) in the country.

Here are my bold predictions for Week 7:

1. Pittsburgh will upset undefeated Louisville
The 5-0 Louisville Cardinals travel to play the 2-3 Pittsburgh Panthers this week to compete in their first Big East conference game of the season. While the Cardinals have their eyes set on a possible undefeated season and Orange Bowl bid, they may have started to feel the pressure that comes with such high expectations, as they have won each of their past three games by seven points or fewer.
