    In week 1...I think that's gotta be James Madison "upsetting" East Carolina. I almost wouldn't even call that an upset though, although technically by division level, it is.

    Other "decent chances" at an upset:
    Fordham @ Army
    Eastern Washington @ Texas Tech
    Cal Poly @ San Jose State
    Northern Iowa @ Iowa State
    Youngstown State @ Pitt
    Albany @ Old Dominion

    I don't think any of these would "blow my mind" if the upsets happened.

    Ivy League Football: Since the latter half of the 20th century, slowly self-destructing to become irrelevant in the scene that they used to dominate, not too many fans among the younger generations, rusting their potentials in the process.
    Before, I liked a lot about Harvard football. Now, not so much. They are the main perpetrators of why Ivy League football has lost its popularity and it may never go back to what it used to be.

    In the meantime, Go Stony Brook Seawolves!

    7:10 PM - Central Arkansas at (#18 FBS) Kansas State

    As much as I'd like to say we are going to beat them, its not likely. I would like to beat them then have the pigs of UA-fayetteville play them in a bowl game and lose. Would be delicious in-state justice.

    If you were playing KU, an "upset" would be a lot more likely.

    But would it really be an upset if it were KU?

    Probably not, although KU won't be the worst team in the Big 12 this year.
    The only untenable situation is the one you are in right now. Support the dissolution of football at Missouri State University.
