(STATS) - They're all in.

If the Montana Grizzlies football program didn't quite know what it had in a new head coach stepping up from the Division II level, everybody must be believing after Bob Stitt and the 13th-ranked Grizzlies upset four-time defending FCS champion North Dakota State, 38-35, in the FCS Kickoff which opened the college football season Saturday.

Joey Counts scored from 1 yard on 4th-and-goal with 2 seconds remaining to lift Montana before a record crowd of 26,472 at Washington-Grizzly Stadium in Missoula.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) A week before the start of the football season, a difficult summer for the University of Illinois became chaotic as coach Tim Beckman was fired after an investigation found he tried to influence medical decisions and pressure players to play with injuries.
