Looks like you just decided to list all FCS vs FBS games, without bothering to think about whether the FCS team has a snowball's chance in a particular game.

I only added schools that had a history of upsets. Sorry, Charleston Southern do not have a history in beating a FBS team. The ones I listed are ones who had.

Tennesse State Vs Middle Tennessee State is a renew rivalry game from OVC days. This would be a bragging rights of shorts.

Far more important than having a "history of upsets" is who you are playing. E.g., I agree that South Dakota State is a good FCS team and probably could beat a couple dozen FBS teams. Maybe 30 - 40 of them.

But they aren't beating Oklahoma.

So you have to look at who is being played, because "FBS" means everything from Clemson to Eastern Michigan, and that's a whopping difference.

To be fair, the headline is possible upsets, not probable. You can throw anything up there and see if it sticks.

USD could beat OU? Come on now.
The only games in that list worth watching for upsets are Maine @ Ga Southern and SIU @ UMass. You could have put #7 Kennesaw St. vs. a bad Kent State, which is a legitimately rough matchup for the FBS school, too.

I don't see any happen except Indiana. B1G schools are known to lose to FCS.

Many things can happen, but you tell us to 'watch' certain games for upsets, you must mean that they have a reasonable chance of happening.

Oklahoma is #4. No team ranked that high has ever lost to an FCS team.

So that would probably qualify as a game that we don't need to watch for an upset, eh?

FCS App State beat #5 ranked Michigan in 2007. Not much difference between 4 and 5.


No, I do not believe they'll beat OU, but just pointing out that it's early in the season and rankings aren't solidified yet (like for Michigan that year).

RE: Possible FCS Wins Over FBS Week 2
Kinda surprised that this wasn't listed:


Eastern Kentucky at Louisville



-- Eastern Kentucky returns something like 50+ lettermen off a 7 and 4 team.

-- Eastern has a dozen or so kids from the Louisville area, who will be inspired to play their best on a big stage in front of family and friends.

-- Louisville has tied a school record for consecutive losses at home, at 6 (the other 6 home game losing streak dates back to the 60's).

-- Louisville played Monday night, so have a VERY quick turn around.

-- Louisville's last win was almost exactly one year ago.

-- Given the coaching change, and transfer exodus that commonly occurs with that, and the extremely shortened recruiting period for the new staff, Louisville's normal roster advantage over an FCS program is practically non-existent.




If Oklahoma could lose, than Louisville could DEFINITELY lose.

I'm worried as hell about this game tomorrow.

This should be on the original list.

NoCo has barely had a pulse since joining D1 in 2004, their best season has been 6-5 twice. Eleven seasons of 3 wins or less. They have lost by 20 points and as many as 60 points in every FBS game except one.

Just kidding. ODU could never beat VT 03-tired

Edit - ODU is FBS. Still feel like FCS I guess.

Clearly, the most likely FCS over FBS candidate would be Furman over Ga State.

Idea: A thread where the OP bets on these games and posts copies of his betting slips here on the board, to show how much money he put behind his own upset picks. 07-coffee3
