Week 2 is in the books, and man was it a wild week for Group of Five football. In the MAC we saw Toledo get smacked by Missouri at home, While Bowling Green and NIU both won. Ball State put up a hell of a fight at Iowa, but fell late in the game.

Elsewhere around the land of Underdogs football, BYU pummeled Texas, but teams such as Boise State got back to business, but teams such as UTSA, LA-Lafayette and Temple got beat at home by Navy. How did this impact the Underdogs Poll? We'll find out later today. But for now you can check out the ballots Keith Scheessele and myself submitted for this week's poll.
