Exxedera’s FCS Top 25 Following #UpsetSaturday (Week 3)

What a wild Saturday it was for FCS Football. We watched just about half of the top 25 lose their games this weekend, has that ever happened before at any level? The headliner of all the upsets was #1 ranked North Dakota State was upset by previously unranked Southern Illinois 38-14, making it the Bison’s first loss since 2017 and their biggest loss since 2005.

#2 South Dakota State and #6 Furman then both proceeded to lose their games in heartbreaking fashion, already hurting their conference title hopes early into the young season. The other 25 teams to lose were Illinois State, Elon, McNeese State, Eastern Washington, Southeastern Louisiana and Tarleton State. Yikes.. Let’s look ahead to this week’s top 25 rankings.
