RE: How many G5 over P5 upsets will there be this season?
In Week 0 and Week 1, I count 24 games in which a P5 team is favored over a G5 team, based on the early betting line. That, of course, is subject to change as G5 fans start betting heavily on their favorite teams. They are (spread in parentheses, home team in bold):

South Florida vs Wisconsin (13.5)
East Carolina vs NC State (17.5)
Tulsa vs Michigan St (20)
Houston vs Oklahoma (24.5)

Utah State vs Wake Forest (3.5)
Boise State vs Florida St (5)
Nevada vs Purdue (9)
Hawaii vs Arizona (11)
Colorado St vs Colorado (12.5)
Fresno St vs Southern Cal (13.5)
Wyoming vs Missouri (17.5)

Toledo vs Kentucky (12)
Akron vs Illinois (16.5)
Ball State vs Indiana (17)
Miami (O) vs Iowa (21.5)
Kent vs Arizona St (25)

Louisiana Tech vs Texas (21)
Florida Atlantic vs Ohio State (27)
Middle Tennessee vs Michigan (33)

Louisiana vs Mississippi St (22.5)
Georgia State vs Tennessee (25.5)
Georgia Southern vs LSU (27)
Texas State vs Texas A&M (34.5)
South Alabama vs Nebraska (35.5)

It would be a bit of a stretch to call Utah State and Boise State upsets if they were to win, at least until we see how their opponents do for the rest of the season. That leaves 22 opportunities, with the MWC appearing to have the best chance for a true upset.
