You might be thinking, Elon Musk? JMwho? Yes, these are real schools with real football programs on the east coast. These are D1 schools are in the FCS, not to be confused with the FBS, with more known schools like Alabama, Clemson, and Texas. BIG things happened last week and let me tell you why this upset is not to be ignored.

JM sucks to be U
2. This was JMU's first loss at home in 18 gamesGiphy
Sorry not sorry.

A top 10 match up for the ages.

27-24: A score that will go down in history. Ok, maybe not history, but this was a big win for Elon and a huge loss for JMU so God bless American and roll Phoenix. #WeWantBama #WeWantCollegeGameDay
