(STATS) -- As the college football season moves into the conference schedules of October this weekend, the FCS departs September with 10 wins over FBS programs. Camo Bears Jerseys .Its not as many as the record 16 in 2013, but reaching double figures is significant. Its one more win than last season and there are some more matchups ahead.But while most of the FCS-over-FBS wins are considered upsets, are they really surprising?This season, theres been the perfect storm of quality FCS teams facing struggling FBS teams. Nine of the 10 FCS teams to beat FBS opponents are nationally ranked, and the exception, Central Arkansas, is 3-1 and in the 33rd spot. Only Iowa has a winning record out of the FBS 10, which are a combined 9-29.Heres a ranking of the least surprising win to the most surprising:10. Northern Iowa 25, Iowa State 20 (Sept. 3) -- Its not like the Panthers were in foreign territory. They were making their fifth trip to Ames this decade, and they won there in 2013 and lost by a point in 2011.9. Richmond 37, Virginia 20 (Sept. 3) -- Considering their previous game was at the Fargodome and most of that starting lineup was back, the question was more, How much are the Spiders going to win by?8. Western Illinois 28, Northern Illinois 23 (Sept. 24) -- This was Western Illinois seventh all-time win over both an FBS and Mid-American Conference program, and five are against NIU.7. Eastern Illinois 21, Miami of Ohio 17 (Sept. 10) -- There was some surprise because EIU third-year coach Kim Dameron had yet to beat a team outside the Ohio Valley Conference. But this was Miami of Ohio -- a doormat in the MAC. Thank you, Cinderella, for wiping off the slippers.6. Central Arkansas 28, Arkansas State 23 (Sept. 24) -- After holding their own against Colorado, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State the last three years, the Bears were not too fazed by playing a winless Sun Belt team.5. North Dakota State 23, Iowa 21 (Sept. 17) -- Sorry, but not buying this was a shocker, even with Iowa entering at No. 13. The Bison had beaten five straight FBS opponents and won the last five FCS national titles. They didnt go to Iowa City to lose.4. Eastern Washington 45, Washington State 42 (Sept. 3) -- The high-flying Eagles had a quarterback (Gage Gubrud) starting for the first time behind an entirely new offensive line, and against the 2015 Sun Bowl champs. Oh, yes, they also had the best player on the field in wide receiver Cooper Kupp.3. North Carolina A&T 39, Kent State 36, 4 OTs (Sept. 10) -- A&T had lost to its three prior FBS opponents by an average of 39.7 points. If you knew beforehand the Aggies would need to go four overtimes with a third-string quarterback running the offense, even realizing they have a veteran roster wouldnt have swayed you into thinking upset.2. Illinois State 9, Northwestern 7 (Sept. 10) -- After Illinois State lost its two former FBS-level talents in the backfield -- quarterback Tre Roberson and running back Marshaun Coprich -- this didnt seem to be the year to beat a Big Ten opponent. It sure helped to have a defense that limited Northwestern to 277 yards.1. Albany 22, Buffalo 16 (Sept. 2) -- With Buffalo pounding Albany 51-14 last year in the Great Danes first-ever game against an FBS opponent, it was hard to see this one coming. The Danes were a mere 3-8 a year ago. Then again, Buffalo coach Lance Leipolds old teams at Division III Wisconsin-Whitewater could probably beat the Bulls as well. Throwback Bears Jerseys . Canada is now down to its 22-player limit, although but players wont be registered until Christmas Day. Changes could still be made as a result of a suspension or injury. Black Bears Jerseys . -- Aldon Smith believes he is on the path to being sober for good. . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human.CALGARY -- The Calgary Stampeders quarterback carousel has turned again, stopping on backup Kevin Glenn as the starter for Fridays game against the undefeated Saskatchewan Roughriders. The Stampeders (4-1) emerged from their bye week with the expectation Drew Tate had overcome a strained right forearm that sidelined him for two games. But Tates arm flared up again after practice earlier this week. Glenn will start against the Riders (5-0) with Bo Levi Mitchell his backup at McMahon Stadium. Tate left in the fourth quarter of a 36-21 road loss to Saskatchewan on July 6. He was subsequently diagnosed with a strained forearm muscle and hasnt played since although his latest setback has been called an elbow injury. "Hell probably be not throwing for five, six, seven days," Calgary head coach/GM John Hufnagel said Wednesday. "It depends on how it responds to injections." Tates string of injuries extends back to the second game of last season when he separated his shoulder. He returned later in the year but broke a bone in his arm in a playoff game. The 28-year-old Texan hasnt been able to get a sustained run of starts since Hufnagel declared him the starter prior to last season. Glenn, 34, did admirable work to get Calgary to last seasons Grey Cup game. But the emergence of Mitchell this year has further crowded the quarterback situation. Mitchell finished a come-from-behind win against Montreal on July 20 when Glenn suffered a right elbow injury. Mitchell, 23, of Katy, Texas, then went the distance in a 37-24 victory over Winnipeg on July 27. He threw for 376 yards and three TDs and was named the CFLs offensive player of the week. "You always expect to go out and play great," Mitchell said. "Thats always the mindset. "Sometimes that doesnt happen. Fortunately for me last time it did. Obviously its going to help your confidence." Glenn admits Calgary has a unique quarterback situation. "The biggest thing about the situation is all three guys have played," he acknowledged. "You dont usually get a situation where that has happened. "Its usually the first-string guy goes down, the second-string guy plays and then it gives the No. 1 guy time to recover and he comes back to hiis starting spot. Pink Bears Jerseys. "That No. 3 guy, Ive been in that situation before where you really had to, I dont want to say pray because youre praying for somebody else to get hurt, but you really had to go through some stuff to actually get onto the field." Glenn had four touchdown passes in a 41-38 win and another two in a 17-10 victory against Saskatchewan last season. Glenn said his arm is healthy and hes looking forward to facing the CFLs only unbeaten team. "Its a team that beat us last time out and its the only loss we have this year, so theres a lot of added incentive," he said. "Ive got some good relationships with guys on that team, so it would be good to have bragging rights. "This is a team that nobody has been able to beat so far and theyre coming into our house and we have a very good opportunity to beat them. All that plays a part in the preparation and taking advantage of the opportunity." Despite having had three different starters, Calgarys offence is averaging a solid 32.4 points per game, second only to Saskatchewan (36.6). The unit is also third in TDs with 16, behind the Riders (19) and Toronto Argonauts (18). "Weve managed to win football games," Hufnagel said. "The quarterbacks have taken care of the football, weve been able to get first downs. "Theyve done a good job managing the game . . . and the receivers and the offensive line are tuned into the quarterback thats on the field. Thats important because everyone has a little bit of a different snap count and timing of the cadence and how the plays are called in the huddle and things like that." Calgary kicker Rene Paredes has also been automatic, having made a CFL-record 34 straight field goals dating back to last year. Hes also leading the league in scoring with 62 points, having accounted for more than a third of 162 points the Stampeders have scored so far. Tate was scheduled to be examined by doctors Wednesday and wasnt sure if his present situation was related to the forearm strain or something new. "I dont know really," he said. "I think I got misdiagnosed to be honest with you. "Well find out. Were going to find out (Wednesday), I think, what it is."
