    12 FCS vs FBS potential upsets

    https://athlonsports.com/college-foo...ps-upsets-2019

    Nice to see Maine is picked as a potential upset winner over GSU. I see Maine having a good year but have no idea if this is a 10-3 GSU team like last year or a 2-10 team like they were in 2017. Historically we have only beat FBS teams when they have been down.

    Air Force will beat Colgate by 3+ TD's. The Raiders are a fringe Top 25 team at best in 2019. Playing the Falcons in the dry heat at 7k feet is a recipe for a butt kicking.

    I think Georgia Southern should beat Maine rather easily too. The Eagles seem headed back in the right direction.

    All of these games feature G-5 FBS schools. Interesting.

    Nicholls St over Texas State isnít a bad shout for an upset. Nicholls has played FBS schools tough the last few years.

    Not mentioned, but we play Colorado State this year. CSU went 3-9 last year including a 16-point loss to Illinois State.
    Depending on the direction they're trending, our game with them could be competitive.

    Interesting. Three SLC teams. I want to predict UCA over Hawaii but man I know us getting that paycheck THERE every few years does wonders for recruiting. I don't think invites come with losses.

    Air Force did beat a pretty solid Stony Brook team 38-0 last year. It's just a really tough place to play for a FCS team. Especially one without redshirts and compromised depth thanks to the PL.

    Colgate was dealt a thorough but not embarrassing beating in 2013 when they lost 38-13. I think something along those lines will take place this season.

    This...and also Air Force is a super disciplined team that runs the **** out of the ball and does not beat themselves. Pretty much the anti recipe for an FCS upset bid.

    ISUb plays Kansas. I think that has some potential. They were worried enough they stole our OC
