Can a deviated septum be at least part of the cause of upper airway resistance syndrome?

In brief: Only slightly

Blockage of the upper airway includes, the tonsils, the base of the tongue, the shape of the epiglottis, the mobility of the vocal folds and the nasal airway.
Although I have never hear of "upper airway resistance syndrome, the major factor in obstructing the upper air way is the base of the tongue. A deviated nasal septum plays a small role.
