34. Week 1 recap | Huskies pull off ACC upset | MAC champs get FCS scare

September 6, 2021

EPISODE 34

Way to go Huskies!

NIU pulled off a Power 5 upset over Georgia Tech which was sealed by a gutsy 2-point conversion in the final seconds of regulation to avoid overtime. It's the first big win of Thomas Hammock's career, and gives his many, many freshmen a memory that they'll always be able to look back on.

No other MAC team pulled off a P5 upset in Week 1, and nobody had the embarrassing loss to a visiting FCS team. But Ball State almost became that embarrassed team against Western Illinois.

Week 1 final scores:

  • Buffalo 69, Wagner 7
  • Ball State 31, WIU 21
  • Tennessee 38, BGSU 6
  • EMU 35, St. Francis 15
  • Michigan 47, WMU 14
  • Cincinnati 49, Miami 14
  • Toledo 49, Norfolk State 10
  • Syracuse 29, Ohio 9
  • Auburn 60, Akron 10
  • Missouri 34, CMU 24
  • Northern Illinois 22, Georgia Tech 21
  • Texas A&M 41, Kent State 10
