Sure, it's only April. But that isn't stopping some college football prognosticators from thinking the Idaho-Eastern Washington game on Aug. 30 could have "upset" written all over it.

Craig Haley of The Sports Network published a piece looking at the early season matchups between FCS and FBS teams and put the Vandals-Eagles game at the top of his list as far as the Big Sky Conference goes.

"Eastern Washington's offensive weapons will be enhanced by the carpet inside the Kibbie Dome. And the host Vandals won't be mistaken for Boise State. " - The Sports Network

He also said don't over look UC Davis, a team playing its first year as a member of the BSC. The Aggies play at San Jose State on Sept. 8 – a team they beat last year 14-13.
