Maine upsets No. 6 Delaware behind Pushaun Brown and a stellar defense.  James Madison got contributions from two backups in the running game.  William and Mary grinded out a win at Villanova thanks to its ground attack and a timely interception.  Old Dominion blocked another kick and picked up its first-ever CAA Football win.  New Hampshire outscored Holy Cross to earn the league its 18th non-conference FCS victory.  Towson competed hard against Maryland, but turnovers kept it from a victory and Rhode Island stumbled in the state's Governor's Cup battle against Brown.

All seven games Saturday showed this league is going to be one which preys on its own, and by the end of the year it will have built some battle-tested squads for the postseason.  Time will only tell which teams rise to the top.

Below is a look at each contest from yesterday as told in recaps, boxscores, photo galleries and loads of video highlights.
