An FCS Team Just Upset An FBS Program

Colorado State's football stadium.

We're well into the college football season and so far we've seen our fair share of upsets. We got another one on Saturday afternoon when an FCS program took down an FBS team.

Illinois State didn't care that Colorado State was at home and is a higher-tier program. The Redbirds went into Fort Collins and dominated the Rams.

Illinois State walked out with a 35-19 win after heading into the game as a four-point underdog. The Rams were outscored 35-13 over the final three quarters of play after opening with the game's first touchdown.

Colorado State entered the game with just one win on the season, though that win came against an SEC program in Arkansas. Maybe that says more about the Razorbacks than it does the Rams.

Illinois State remains undefeated on the season, while Colorado State falls to 1-4. The Rams have struggled to put up points against quality opponents and those struggles continued on Saturday afternoon.
