The most prominent upset of week one was obviously BYU's 14-13 victory over #3 Oklahoma in the Cowboy Classic. BYU was physical, and Bob Stoops was out-coached by Bronco Mendenhall.
"Punch-gate" notwithstanding, Boise State's victory over Oregon also took place on national TV, and although Oregon looked to be vastly over-rated, the game still has people talking Bronco BCS Busting.
Colorado State also took out Big XII team Colorado on the road in a game where the Rams dominated from start to finish. (Luckily the Big XII escaped more upset as Kansas State squeaked by UMass 21-17).
The Upset would also like to take this time to point out the hypocrisy of the media. A ranked Iowa team trailed Northern Iowa for most of the second half, and needed two blocked field goals to escape with a 17-16 win. Had this been against an MWC or WAC team, invariably it would have been said that "we see that these conferences just aren't that strong or deep." But all that was said is "Iowa comes away with the victory." Doesn't anybody remember that BYU beat No. Iowa 41-17 last season? Why didn't the Big Ten take more crap for this???
And while The Upset is dedicated to football in the MWC and WAC, we would be remissed if we didn't call out the ACC who had 2 losses to FCS teams. Virginia fell at home to William & Mary 26-14, and Duke fell to FCS power Richmond 24-16, also at home. We aren't sure why Duke ever scheduled that game, and wonder if Virginia will ever again be legitimate.
