There have been several September shockers over the last few college football seasons. Appalachian State beating Michigan in 2007 still gets a lot of talk, and there were early stunners last year with Jacksonville State blindsiding Ole Miss, Kansas losing to North Dakota State 6-3, and James Madison topping Virginia Tech in Blacksburg.
