Coastal Carolina holds the top spot for the second consecutive week after an easy road win at intrastate foe South Carolina State, 41-14, at Oliver C. Dawson Stadium in Orangeburg, SC. Joe Moglia’s Chanticleers (2-0, 0-0 Big South) opened a 32-0 halftime lead behind Alex Ross’ 195 passing yards and two touchdown strikes while De’Angelo Henderson bulled his way to 136 rushing yards and a score. Coastal Carolina’s defense held the Bulldogs (1-1, 0-0 MEAC) to 234 yards of offense, including, only, 51 on the ground and forced three turnovers.

New Hampshire remains on the heels of Coastal Carolina after dispatching Colgate 26-8 at Andy Kerr Stadium in Hamilton, NY. The running back tandem of Dalton Crossan and Trevon Bryant led the Wildcats (1-1, 0-0 CAA) with 166 rushing yards and two touchdowns and Sean Goldrich passed for 166 yards and a 12-yard TD pass to Jared Allison shortly before halftime. The Raiders (0-2, 0-0 Patriot) avoided  the home shutout early in the fourth quarter on Jake Melville’s 13-yard scoring pass to Alex Greenawalt and a 2-point conversion strike to John Quazza.

Tre Robertson threw for 259 yards and four touchdowns on 9-of-13 passing and Marshaun Coprich rushed for 130 yards and three scores as third-ranked Illinois State bludgeoned Morgan State 67-14 at Hancock Stadium in Normal, IL. The Redbirds (1-1, 0-0 MVFC) vaulted to a 36-7 halftime advantage courtesy of a pair of Sean Slattery field goals, a safety, two touchdown passes from Robertson and a pair of scoring runs by Coprich. The Bears (0-2, 0-0 MEAC) scored early in the second quarter on a 2-yard run by Orlando Johnson and 17-yard touchdown pass from Seth Higgins to Brian Gentry near the end of the third quarter.

North Dakota State advances one notch to fourth after their 41-14 win over Weber State at the Fargodome in Fargo, ND. Carson Wentz led the Bison (1-1, 0-0 MVFC) with 281 yards passing and three touchdowns, two to Chase Morlock. Wentz and King Frazier, each. rushed for scores as Chris Klieman’s defense allowed, only, 206 yards to the visiting Wildcats (0-2, 0-0 Big Sky). Weber State’s highlight of the day was a 100-yard kickoff return by Eric Wilkes with 13:44 to play following a 37-yard field goal from North Dakota State’s Cam Pederson.

Villanova jumps two spots into the top-five after a hard-fought 14-7 win over then-12th ranked Fordham at a wet and slippery Jack Coffey Field in The Bronx, NY. John Robertson passed for a touchdown and ran for another in the first 18 minutes of the game as the Wildcats (1-1, 0-0 CAA) limited the Rams (1-1, 0-0 Patriot) to 182 yards of offense, including a 20-yard touchdown pass from Kevin Anderson to Corey Caddle with less than four minutes remaining in the opening half that ended the day’s scoring.

In other games of note, Northern Iowa held off Eastern Washington 38-35 at the UNI-Dome, moving the Panthers (1-1, 0-0 MVFC) into the top-ten and dropping the Eagles (0-2, 0-0 Big Sky) one spot behind, at #11.

Jacksonville State, nearly, pulled off the biggest upset in college football since Appalachian State’s 2007 defeat of Michigan, but fell to FBS #6 Auburn 27-20 in overtime at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Despite the loss, the Gamecocks (1-1, 0-0 OVC) move up two spots to 7th.

Cal Poly, who upset Montana last week, fell to Arizona State 35-21 at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, AZ. The Mustangs (1-1, 0-0 Big Sky) entered the final quarter tied at 21 with the host Sun Devils, but gave up a pair of touchdowns in the final eight minutes of the contest.
