Florida State blew a massive lead to fall to Boise State 36-31, getting shut out in the second half in the process.Georgia State logged the upset of the weekend, knocking off Tennessee at Neyland Stadium and setting the stage for a rough weekend for the SEC East. South Carolina lost to North Carolina as a double-digit favorite, blowing a 20-9 fourth quarter lead, and Missouri lost in a strange road trip to Wyoming.
