The dust has settled on the first week of FCS play and if the STATS FCS Top 25 poll is correct the UMaine Black Bears have one tough schedule ahead.

After playing FBS Toledo this week, it's on to FCS play and 7 of the 9 teams on the Maine schedule are listed in the week one Top-25/also receiving votes.

The only teams not on the list but on the Black Bear schedule - Bryant University(Oct.1) and Rhode Island(Oct.22).

Maine lost a 24-21 game at UConn last Thursday night to start the season.

Here's the week one STATS national poll.
