NDSU, SDSU, EWU and remember McNeese, who beat Tarleton, all lost.
JMU struggled with Robert Morris.

The McNeese State score, losing at home to Incarnate Word by 28, was a shocker. McNeese is a quasi- FCS power and were favored by 11 points, and got shellacked at home.

FWIW, McNeese State, located in southwest Louisiana, suffered significant damage during Hurricane Laura just six months ago. The football field, which is set in to the ground, was flooded with about 4 feet of water, and several facilities at the stadium, including the goal posts and artificial turf field, were destroyed and had to be replaced. The stadium lighting system is still out, so all their home games this spring will be played during the day. So it's something that they were able to even host the game. Also, LSU coach Ed Orgeron's son is the McNeese starting QB.

I think quasi-power is accurate quo, so long as that definition is “frequent playoff participant”. Fits McNeese well currently & acknowledges their historical success.
