First Round Results
South Carolina State proved to be a tougher opponent that many, including myself, expected, but Appalachian State moved on after a 37-21 victory.
Colgate established why the Patriot is a perennial one bid league, and Villanova established why they should have received a seed during this 55-28 thrashing.
Eastern Kentucky's weak performance in a 38-10 demolition by Richmond puts an end to a season that the OVC wishes it could forget.
Turnovers threatened to undo New Hampshire, but ultimately undid host Southern Illinois 29-20, who had a 'down year' with a rookie coach.
Texas State made waves early, but ultimately Montana proved that they were way to good in their 31-13 victory.
Wofford unsurprisingly hung tough with James Madison, but the #1 seed edged into the quarterfinals with a 38-35 win.
Maine looked looked all out of sorts, indeed, like a team that should have been left out of the playoffs, in a 40-15 loss at Northern Iowa.
Cal Poly completed the self-destruction of their season, throwing more interceptions in their 49-35 loss to Weber State than they missed extra points last week.
Prediction Success this week: 7/8 (miscalled the Cal Poly/Weber State game)
Villanova gets sweet revenge for their home loss to James Madison on October 25, and the #1 seed fails to advance for the second year running.
Weber State struggles mightily to become the road warriors of this years tournament, but are undone by the weather, not to mention Montana.
Appalachian State proves to Richmond that the more things change, the more they stay the same.
New Hampshire once again fails to exorcise the Curse of the Dome, and Northern Iowa wins the catfight.
