South Alabama getting hammered 33-0 by Memphis early in the 4Q. EDIT: Make that 40-0.

Nebraska's strength of schedule looking suspect. Very beatable.

GO NIU!

Beat Nebraska (again).

RE: Elsewhere in the MAC...
This is exactly why college football teams should not be ranked before a game has been played. Why did anyone think a Nebraska team that won four games the season before should be preseason ranked in the top 25?

Or a better question: Why are these teams not still ranked when NIU plays them? Would be nicer to beat a "ranked" Nebraska team rather than a "bad" Nebraska team, which is exactly how they will be characterized when NIU beats them tonight.

It's all bullcrap.

GO NIU!

Well, it might be because they lost last week. Just maybe.

Congrats to Eastern Michigan! They have an excellent AD and head football coach. They will be tough when we play them.

The Mac needs the NIU win today, not a great OOC run so far for the conference. Not an EMU fan, but congrats to them for embarrassing the 3rd best FBS team in Illinois today.

P.J. Starbuck survives by the skin of his teeth, at home, against Georgia Southern of the Sun Belt after needing overtime (and quite a bit of luck) last week against Fresno State and FCS South Dakota State the week before that.

IL is bad. Did not realize that bad. No line play. I thought Lovie would be better by now, don't see anything in the pipeline to a glimpse of a future.

Michigan State held scoreless in East Lansing for the first half.

Michigan State scored a total of 7 points today after scoring almost 100 last week. 03-wink

Utah took care of business today winning 31-0 and only allowing 116 total yards to FCS Idaho State. Utes are for real. Hope they go undefeated. They'll be a "quality loss" regardless.

USC lost to BYU today.

Be ause they are in the B1g.

They often begin with as many ranked teams as the SEC, then lose them as the season progresses.
