Pick This Year's Appy State

We all know the story: Appalachian State 34, Michigan 32. First win by a FCS program over a ranked BCS team, yada yada yada. Can it happen again? That was rhetorical; in an infinite universe not only CAN it happen again, it MUST come to pass over and over and over again (this is a theory embraced by conference doormats, who hope only to live long enough to witness the inevitable Vandy-Duke title game.) Will it happen THIS year? Probably not, but if it does the pant-shitting will likely occur in the first week, as seven ranked squads will be snacking on yummy, yummy FCS cupcakes.

So the question I pose to my fellow fans of forecasting fail, which of the following matchups is the most likely to be "Appalachian'd?"

 

Florida A&M @ #13 Miami

Youngstown State @ #4 Penn State

Samford @ #20 Florida State

Eastern Illinois @ #9 Iowa

South Carolina State @ #16 Georgia Tech

Coastal Carolina @ #25 West Virginia

Tennessee Tech @ #17 Arkansas

 

Actually PREDICTING an upset grants you eternal boasting rights here at EDSBS, as well as years of hate mail and burning bags of dog crap from otherwise civilized alums (note: does not, obviously, apply to fervent Miami fans, as even in an infinite universe some things do NOT exist.)
