Instead of making many threads about FCS teams beating or coming close to beating FBS teams, I will make one thread. As of right now Liberty is beating Kent State 10-7 late in the 3rd quarter. Also, Illinois State is beating Ball State 21-9 late in the 2nd quarter.

Presbyterian was up on Wake Forest 7-3 early on, but Wake has responded, and took the lead at 24-7 last time I checked.

Thanks for making this thread. :cheers:

I'm watching the Towson-UConn game on ESPN3 and Towson just converted a 3rd and 13 with 7:30 left in the game. Nice deep pass to get them into the RZ. Towson will win this game.

Urb Gruber

And on 4th and 1, Towson punches the ball in for a TD. 26-10 with 5:14 left.

UConn gets a TD and 2 point conversion back to make it 26-18 with 3:30 left. I might have just gone Black Cat on Towson :rotf:

UConn forces a three and out against Towson after they burn all 3 TO's. UConn muffs the punt and Towson recovers on the UConn 30.

08-29-2013, 10:47 PM
Towson beats UConn 33-18 and Southern Utah beat South Alabama 22-21. South Alabama is a full fledged member of the FBS and Sun Belt.

The Towson win over UConn is a shocker. I know Towson is ranked in the FCS, but for UConn to go down like that... wow. That's really embarrassing.

The loss of Optimus Klein cannot be understated. It shows when I look at the box score. Kansas State had 40 yards rushing on 23 carries and only converted 2 of 10 3rd downs (and 1 of 2 4th downs). Waters played a good game tonight, but K State just could not run the ball. That really hurt the Kansas State defense because of how much time they spent on the field. Congrats to NDSU on an excellent game and excellent execution.

I don't consider the upset of KSU by North Dakota State to be very shocking. NDSU won the FCS National Championship last year. They have a great team and a great program. I don't think Kansas State had any large expectations this year. They weren't picked to contend for the Big 12 Championship. Anyway, it's great to see an upset here!

Very true. Even when one team appears superior to the others, there is no guarantee they will beat them. Iowa has also had problems with ISU recently. Seems like they either win by a narrow margin or are upset.
