More FCS Upsets

Last Sunday I hoped that no more FCS teams would upset FBS teams. During Week 2, four FCS schools beat FBS schools:

South Dakota 41
Minnesota 38

Gardner-Webb 38
Akron 37 (OT)

James Madison 21
No. 13 Virginia Tech 16

Liberty 27
Ball State 23

By far the worst loss was annual powerhouse Virginia Tech losing to James Madison. It is pretty obvious the Hokies were still mulling over last week's heartbreak loss to Boise State. This loss marks only the second time since the splitting of Division 1 in 1978 that a team from the lower division beat a ranked opponent from the higher division. The other occurence was back in 2007 when Appalachian State beat No. 5 Michigan in Ann Arbor 34-32.
