#3 James Madison beat Southeastern Louisiana, 59-20. #6 Montana will play at JMU next weekend.

#2 North Dakota State beat Southern Illinois, 38-7.
#7 ETSU beat Kennesaw State, 32-31 in an exciting finish. ETSU was down 31-17 with under 2 minutes left in the game, but they were able to drive down for a TD, recover the onside kick, take it in for another TD, then instead of going for the XP to tie the game, they went for 2 and got it with 35 seconds left in the game. They then held on to win.
North Dakota State will host ETSU next weekend.

#1 Sam Houston beats Incarnate Word, 49-42. UIW had the ball in the red zone, got down close to the end zone, 4th and goal, QB keep, came up a couple of inches short.
#8 Montana State beat UT-Martin, 26-7, despite MSU's QB entering the transfer portal 2 days ago and not playing today.
Montana State will play at Sam Houston State next weekend.

Just an interesting note. I'm watching NDSU's game, and they are complaining about the empty seats in the stands..................

As of yesterday, Frisco tickets are still available.  That would never happen in the past.  I almost pulled the trigger for a pair.  Went several years in a row regardless of who was playing.  Might do it this year.
 
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

Granted, even their "small" crowds dwarf ours, but I just found the perspective interesting. We're not the only ones with crowd problems, apparently.
