For the first time in history
The Sun Belt Conference picked up 3 P5 Wins on the same weekend. Technically, we had already pulled this at two, the third win just makes it sweeter.

Congrats to everyone, another huge sign of improvement as a league.

The networks and talking heads had to spotlight the SBC. Great weekend.

The SBC certainly capitalized on the opportunities for positive exposure that were presented yesterday!

RE: For the first time in history
Another first for the league (almost surely a first) is 5 consecutive seasons with a P5 win.

2016: South over Miss State
2017: Troy over LSU
2018: Troy over Nebraska
2019: App over UNC & USC, Coastal over Kansas, Georgia State over Tennessee
2020: UL over Iowa State, StAte over Kansas State, Coastal over Kansas

We've also got to be the first non-power league to go undefeated against the P5 in a season, but granted it helps with the small number of games.

There's one P5 game left, right?

Ugly win minus 40% of your roster = win IMO.

I would have said the same thing, but as Campbell lined up for their 4th different onside kick attempt in the final 15 seconds, I realized there was no other way to classify this than ugly.

Hey Old Yeller,

Not meant as disrespect to your team but any team losing as many as y’all did makes the game ugly before it even started. Y’all won and that’s all that matters in the end...but you have to admit it was ugly. Normally y’all would have crushed them but kudos to the Eagles for pulling it out regardless.
