Football teams that compete on the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) level are supposed to be the cream of the crop. That reputation absorbed a hit this past weekend. Six FBS schools suffered losses to programs from the Fooball Championship Subdivision (FCS) level. Towson's 33-18 defeat of Connecticut Thursday night got the ball rolling for the FCS. To be fair, the majority of the FBS teams that played against FCS opponents this past weekend exerted their might. Still, Tigers coach Rob Ambrose agreed with the notion that the talent gap between FBS and FCS schools has been narrowing since FBS programs were limited to distributing 85 scholarships.

When Towson athletic director Mike Waddell broached the idea with Rob Ambrose of taking his football team down to play LSU in Baton Rouge for the fourth game of the 2012 season, the Tigers' coach was decidedly lukewarm. The initial discussion took place two summers ago before the athletic department's annual crab feast in Ocean City . At the time, Towson was coming off a 1-10 season in 2010 after going 2-9 in Ambrose's first year at his alma mater. Their turnaround 9-3 season in 2011 was still months away.

Towson has faced some of the top offenses in the Football Championship Subdivision and slowed high-powered opponents like Delaware, New Hampshire and Richmond en route to victories. But Saturday's second-round game of the NCAA tournament at Johnny Unitas Stadium may bring a different challenge. Fordham (12-1) ranks first in the FBS in completion percentage (70.4) and fourth in average yards (358.3). The aerial attack has helped the Rams rank 12th in scoring, averaging 38.3 points per game.

Maryland's game against Old Dominion on Saturday marks the beginning of the end of an era. The Terps plan to phase out games against Football Championship Subdivision opponents in the coming years. But Maryland (1-0, 0-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) knows better than to relax against the Monarchs. The Terps ' own history - and recent upsets of other major-conference teams by FCS schools - show them why it's not a good idea to overlook Old Dominion. Last week, eight FCS schools upset Football Bowl Subdivision squads, including Towson over Connecticut, 33-18; Eastern Washington over Oregon State, 49-46; and North Dakota State over Kansas State, 24-21.
