The FCS season got off to a solid start last night with a couple of good games, including the first FCS over FBS upset as Tennessee State knocked off Georgia State. The Missouri Valley posted a 2-1 record as SDSU and Western Illinois both won, while Indiana State lost with three seconds left to Eastern Illinois. New Hampshire edged out rival Maine 24-23, while Samford waited out a three hour lightning delay to beat Kennesaw State.
