Round 2 Results & Round 3 Matchups
UNI downed Wofford 28-21
Montana over Central Ark. 41-14
UNI at Montana: Never find an SEC team playing in the cold blowing snow in mid-December in a Northern State. Fact is, with UNI leaving the UNI-Dome, how prepared will it be for the cold, high altitude and winds in Montana???
Montana State over UNH 26-25
Sam HOuston State 34-27 over Stony Brook.
Mont. State at Sam. HOuston St.
GPI has Sam Houston State #1 in its power rankings. That is a surprise to me. The Bobcast of Mt. State will give SHSU a rough test I imagine.
Also, Stony Brook was very competitive. New coaches are changing the landscape of FCS a bit.
Maine downs Appy State on the road 34-12 in a convincing win.
Georgia Southern ekes past newcomer Old Dominion 55-48. ODU in oly ist 3rd season in FCS is already wreaking havoc on the balance of power in Virginia and the recruiting haul that VaTech, UVA, Richmond, JMU and William & Mary always took out of Coastal Virginia. The new kid on the block will be a power in years to come.
Maine at Georgia Southern - Can the Black Bears go on the road and get another win over a traditional FCS power??
Lehigh downs Towson 40-38. Big Win for a Patriot League team over a 9-2 CAA team. Can the Fighting Iacoca's be for real??
N. Dak. St crushes James Madison 26-14. OK, maybe not crushes but as a UR fan, I really enjoyed JMU losing to a Valley team.
Lehigh at NDStU. On paper, this is a mismatch. But they don't play on paper.
