College football doesn’t tend to produce upsets early in the season, but several underdogs bucked that trend in Week 2.

Appalachian State, Marshall and Georgia Southern had odds at +700 or greater with double digit points spreads on Caesars Sportsbook, but this Sun Belt trio all delivered with victories over Power Five schools.

Georgia Southern was the longest shot of them all at +1450 to win, but they delivered against Nebraska and rewarded an Illinois bettor that wagered $500 on the money line with a $7,250 payday.

That wasn’t the biggest win, however, as a New Jersey bettor live bet a money line parlay of Marshall (+1050), App State (+700) and Washington State (+650) that paid out a whopping $34,450 on $50.

Washington State delivered the upset over Wisconsin, with Kansas also pulling off a significant upset over West Virginia at +400 odds.

Marshall and App State upset a pair of top 10-ranked teams, as App defeated No. 6 Texas A&M, and Marshall defeated No. 8 Notre Dame.

A $10 bet on all five of these underdogs parlayed together would have paid out an estimated $534,740.
