Akron's game against Michigan was better than Bowling Green's game against Indiana. Definitely did not see that one coming.

Akron's L.T. Smith lays out for the catch at The Big House.

Bowling Green 10 - Indiana 42

A penny over 600 yards of offense can beat up just about any team, especially when your team has suffered a few recent injuries.

Akron 24 - #11 Michigan 28

I've never seen 110,000+ people more excited to beat Akron, who hasn't beaten an FBS school since November 26, 2010, in my life. The last MAC school to go to the Big House and beat Michigan: Toledo in 2008. (Fun fact: that was my first Big House experience.) AKRON!

Buffalo 26 - Stony Brook 23 (5OT)

It took Buffalo five overtimes to beat Stoney Brook. Anybody still think Buffalo is going to win the MAC East?

Northern Illinois 45 - Idaho 35

"Who'd NIU beat?"

"Idaho."

"LOLOLOLOL YEAH YOU ARE!"

Ball State 27 - North Texas 34

The Cardinals were up 20-3 after the first quarter. Zach Paul kicked for 14 points to help the Mean Green rally their way to a win. Keith Wenning threw his first two interceptions of the year in this game, too.

Ohio 34 - Marshall 31

In terms of rushing, Beau Blankenship and Tyler Tettleton had 20 carries for 19 yards. Although, Blankenship did have a pair of touchdowns on the ground and Tettleton did score through the air, which did helped the Bobcats win this game of tug--of-war against the Thundering Herd.

Central Michigan 21 - UNLV 31

Cooper Rush rushed for -11 yards, but threw his first touchdown in the second quarter to put the Chippewas ahead 21-0, but the the Rebels would then score 31 unanswered points to save themselves from an upset.

Toledo 33 - Eastern Washington 21

EWU scored 92 points in their first two games and Toledo's underrated defense held them down to 21. The Rockets held the Eagles scoreless through the second and third quarters and David Fluellen rushed for 143 yards and a pair of scores for the day.

Kent State 13 - #8 LSU 45

This year's going to be a disaster for the Golden Flashes without Dri Archer. I mean, they'd probably still fall to the Tigers, but it still doesn't seem like it's going to get any prettier than this.

Eastern Michigan 10 - Rutgers 28

Paul James rush for three touchdowns. One for 13 yards and two for over 50 yards. The best defense is a good offense, but when Bronson Hill doesn't gain any yards and Dylan Mulder goes 1-for-3 on field goal attempts, the uphill battle becomes more steep for EMU.

Western Michigan 17 - #17 Northwestern 38

Northwestern's Treyvon Green rushed for 158 yards and two touchdowns off of 20 carries. As a team, WMU had 31 carries for 143 yards and did not score on the ground. And for you sabermetricians, Van Tubbergen had a 29.0 QBR. Does anybody even know how to calculate that sort of stuff?

UMass 7 - Kansas State 37

As we continue this season's game show series of UMass Starting Quarterback Roulette, A.J. Doyle got the start against Kansas State. He threw the first touchdown of the game, but it went to the wrong player that ran to the other endzone. UMass and Miami (OH) are both tied for the least amount of point scored this season with 21.
