(STATS) -- As the college football season moves into the conference schedules of October this weekend, the FCS departs September with 10 wins over FBS programs. Nike Air Max Tn Uomo .Its not as many as the record 16 in 2013, but reaching double figures is significant. Its one more win than last season and there are some more matchups ahead.But while most of the FCS-over-FBS wins are considered upsets, are they really surprising?This season, theres been the perfect storm of quality FCS teams facing struggling FBS teams. Nine of the 10 FCS teams to beat FBS opponents are nationally ranked, and the exception, Central Arkansas, is 3-1 and in the 33rd spot. Only Iowa has a winning record out of the FBS 10, which are a combined 9-29.Heres a ranking of the least surprising win to the most surprising:10. Northern Iowa 25, Iowa State 20 (Sept. 3) -- Its not like the Panthers were in foreign territory. They were making their fifth trip to Ames this decade, and they won there in 2013 and lost by a point in 2011.9. Richmond 37, Virginia 20 (Sept. 3) -- Considering their previous game was at the Fargodome and most of that starting lineup was back, the question was more, How much are the Spiders going to win by?8. Western Illinois 28, Northern Illinois 23 (Sept. 24) -- This was Western Illinois seventh all-time win over both an FBS and Mid-American Conference program, and five are against NIU.7. Eastern Illinois 21, Miami of Ohio 17 (Sept. 10) -- There was some surprise because EIU third-year coach Kim Dameron had yet to beat a team outside the Ohio Valley Conference. But this was Miami of Ohio -- a doormat in the MAC. Thank you, Cinderella, for wiping off the slippers.6. Central Arkansas 28, Arkansas State 23 (Sept. 24) -- After holding their own against Colorado, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State the last three years, the Bears were not too fazed by playing a winless Sun Belt team.5. North Dakota State 23, Iowa 21 (Sept. 17) -- Sorry, but not buying this was a shocker, even with Iowa entering at No. 13. The Bison had beaten five straight FBS opponents and won the last five FCS national titles. They didnt go to Iowa City to lose.4. Eastern Washington 45, Washington State 42 (Sept. 3) -- The high-flying Eagles had a quarterback (Gage Gubrud) starting for the first time behind an entirely new offensive line, and against the 2015 Sun Bowl champs. Oh, yes, they also had the best player on the field in wide receiver Cooper Kupp.3. North Carolina A&T 39, Kent State 36, 4 OTs (Sept. 10) -- A&T had lost to its three prior FBS opponents by an average of 39.7 points. If you knew beforehand the Aggies would need to go four overtimes with a third-string quarterback running the offense, even realizing they have a veteran roster wouldnt have swayed you into thinking upset.2. Illinois State 9, Northwestern 7 (Sept. 10) -- After Illinois State lost its two former FBS-level talents in the backfield -- quarterback Tre Roberson and running back Marshaun Coprich -- this didnt seem to be the year to beat a Big Ten opponent. It sure helped to have a defense that limited Northwestern to 277 yards.1. Albany 22, Buffalo 16 (Sept. 2) -- With Buffalo pounding Albany 51-14 last year in the Great Danes first-ever game against an FBS opponent, it was hard to see this one coming. The Danes were a mere 3-8 a year ago. Then again, Buffalo coach Lance Leipolds old teams at Division III Wisconsin-Whitewater could probably beat the Bulls as well. Nike Tn Grigie . He was followed closely by David Clarkson, donning red, seconds later. Clarksons actions one night earlier, leaping off the bench in defence of Kessel during a pre-season game against the Buffalo Sabres, will cost him the first 10 games of the regular season. Nike Tn Bianche .com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins placed forward James Neal on injured reserve Tuesday. . Arsenal failed to take full advantage of its main rivals stumbles on Saturday as substitute Gerard Deulofeu levelled with a hard shot from a tight angle in the 84th minute to give Everton a deserved point. Ahead of a crucial fortnight that will see them play against Napoli in the Champions League, Manchester City and Chelsea, Arsenal leads by five points ahead of Liverpool and Chelsea. HELSINKI -- Amid last-minute confusion about which players are eligible to play for Kosovo, soccers newest national team started its first World Cup qualifier convincingly with a 1-1 draw against Finland, which has tried to reach the finals 18 times before.They pressed hard from the beginning on the Finns home turf with nifty footwork and quick passes in front of a capacity crowd in the southwestern city of Turku.Bernard Berisha had Kosovos first attempt on goal, six minutes into the game and Leart Paqarada hit the post three minutes later.But it was Finland which scored first, when forward Paulus Arajuuri was left unmarked to turn in a corner in the 17th minute.Kosovo kept up the pressure, eventually equalizing on the hour mark with Valon Berisha striking a penalty past Luka Hradecky, Eintracht Frankfurts goalkeeper.Mehmet Hetemaj, a naturalized Finn of Kosovar Albanian descent, who has played on Finlands national team, described the Kosovans as hungrier.They really wanted to win. They were there to win, he said.Kosovan President Hashim Thaci, who watched the game from the Turku grounds, said the team felt like winners.You are the best. You will win. You are the new heroes of Kosovo, he said.The buildup to the evenings game was wrought with confusion as FIFA kept the Kosovo team guessing about who would be allowed to represent the tiny country in its World Cup debut. Less than five hours before the 9:45 p.m. (1845 GMT) kickoff, FIFA finally approved six players who were already with the squad in Turku. Head coach Albert Bunjaki could sigh with relief -- he had a full team to choose from.Five of the siix players, including goalkeeper Samir Ujkani, had formerly represented Albania, which borders Kosovo. Air Max 97 Gold Uomo. The case of Berisha, who played for Norway before Kosovo gained FIFA and UEFA membership in May, was the last to be resolved.FIFAs players status committee had been evaluating requests to switch allegiance of Kosovo-eligible players who had represented other countries at youth or senior level while their home country was not recognized in international soccer.Kosovo team spokesman Fazli Berisha told The Associated Press the federation welcomed FIFAs decision. All our demands were taken into consideration.Kosovos assistant coach, Tord Grip, said the confusion was unsettling.Maybe its both the Kosovo federation and FIFA that have messed this up. I dont know all the details, Grip, a former longtime assistant to Sven-Goran Eriksson, told Swedish radio on Monday.Kosovos entry into FIFA membership has tested the rules on switching allegiance. Created to regulate typical cases in which players had nationality of two existing FIFA member federations, the rules have struggled to cope with a new national team like Kosovo.FIFA had in recent months approved requests from nine Kosovo players who had represented six different European countries, including Albania, Germany and Switzerland.Kosovos qualifying group also includes Croatia, Iceland, Turkey and Ukraine.--Llazar Semini in Tirana, Albania, Karl Ritter in Stockholm and Graham Dunbar in Geneva contributed to this story. Discount NFL Jerseys China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store China Jerseys Cheap Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '
