College Gridiron Season 2013 Underway

The college football season always begins generally with larger programs scheduling lightweights in order to sharpen their skills for conference play.  Occasionally, the larger, or more storied programs from the Football Bowl Subdivision even drop down and play against schools that are a member of the Football Championship Subdivision. In theory, these games are supposed to be blowouts.  It doesn’t always turn out that way.  Two minor upsets and one major one of that variety occurred over the last two days (Thursday and Friday).  Towson of the Colonial Athletic Association defeated Connecticut 33-18 on the Huskies’ home field.  Although this upset comes nowhere near creating the big splash like the Appalachian State upset of Michigan (included below for the sake of walking down Memory Lane) in the Big House, it is still a nice victory for the smaller schools to relish.

Now, another FCS upset can almost approach the defeat of Michigan in the Big House, as North Dakota State came into Manhattan, Kansas and pulled off the upset over Big Twelve power Kansas State.

Another FCS win over an FBS school involved Southern Utah nipping South Alabama of the Sun Belt Conference by a score of 22-21.  Although technically members of the Football Bowl Subdivision the Sun Belt is generally regarded as one of the weaker conferences.  The South Alabama loss, in reality, was a toss-up game to begin with.
