(Sports Network) – FCS teams weren’t content with the big opening week of
upsets against FBS opponents.

On Saturday, three more were more added to the eight from a week ago.

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, looking to avenge its season-
opening loss to UT Martin, ran right over transitioning FBS program Georgia
State, 42-14, at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

The Mocs dominated the ground game against the Panthers, racking up 401 rushing
yards, largely from Keon Williams. The junior tailback carried the ball 20
times for 147 yards and a touchdown.

Quarterback Jacob Huesman also accounted for four touchdowns (two passing and
two rushing)

“There was a lot of running room out there,” Chattanooga coach Russ Huesman
said. “The line blocked well and give the running backs credit, they ran hard.
Keon was very physical, he delivered some shots out there. He is a load to
tackle. I’m proud of him. I thought the offensive line was really strong
today.”

Maine ran over former Colonial Athletic Association foe Massachusetts, 24-14,
at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.

After the Minutemen jumped ahead with an early touchdown, Maine ran off 24
unanswered points. It was the first loss to an FCS school for the Minutemen
since joining the FBS ranks a year ago.

Maine quarterback Marcus Wasilewski went 20-for-28 for 267 yards and moved past
Black Bears head coach Jack Cosgrove for ninth place on the school’s all-time
passing yardage list. Wasilewski was Maine’s leading rusher with 76 yards and
one touchdown, while Rickey Stevens and Zedric Joseph each rushed for 65 yards
and a touchdown.

Nicholls slipped past Western Michigan, 27-23, Saturday night in Kalamazoo.
Andrew Dolan kicked two fourth-quarter field goals and Josh Dewey intercepted a
pass at the goal line in the final minute, lifting the Colonels.

Marcus Washington scored on a pair of runs in the win.
