It's Never Too Early To Talk Upsets!

Turn on the sirens, we've got an upset watch! Sure, college football is months away(ugh, it feels more like centuries), but it's never too early to talk about the upcoming season. Hell, we even do it during the season, saying things like "just wait until next season, they'll be better(re: Florida's secondary)". Anyway, in taking a quick look at some of the schedules out there one game pops out. It's mostly because of what happened last year, and that might dimish the upset factor a bit, but it still would be an upset in our book(no, not the one with the Tongue Tornado, the other one).

Last year:

Upcoming season:

Yes, that's right, to kick off the 2008 season the defending FBS champs, LSU, will host the defending FCS champs, Appalachian State. We all saw what App State did to Michigan last year, so we know that they can play with the big boys. However, LSU's program is a little ahead of Michigan at this point in time so it will be interesting to see how this game pans out. It's a great upset scenario because it's early in the season, and the Mountaineers will be extremely motivated to knock off another FBS powerhouse. It should be a good game, though a lot can happen between now and then.
