Is there another Appalachian State hiding in the FCS Coaches Poll preseason top 25, released Tuesday?

Probably not -- the only 2013 FBS opponent for the current version of 2007's Mountaineers, two-time defending national champion and No. 1 North Dakota State, is unranked Kansas State. But any FBS team facing any of the teams listed below should consider itself warned. Via the NCAA's official site:

Here's the others receiving votes: Wagner (87), Colgate (67), Tennessee State (52), Harvard (48), Delaware (47), The Citadel (39), Liberty (39), Arkansas Pine-Bluff (35), Indiana State (27), Stephen F. Austin (19), McNeese State (16), Penn (13), Alcorn State (12), Jacksonville State (11), Samford (10), Norfolk State (7), Alabama State (7), UC Davis (7), Southern Illinois (6), Maine (5), Albany (5), Tennessee Tech (5), UT Martin (4), Gardner Webb (4), Sacramento State (3), Hampton (3), San Diego (2), Jackson State (1), Missouri State (1), Brown (1).

And since you're wondering, here's the FBS opponents for each of the top 10 schools above (all games on the road, of course):

1. North Dakota State: Kansas State (Fri., Aug. 30)

2. Montana State: SMU (Sept. 7)

3. Eastern Washington: Oregon State (Aug. 31), Toledo (Sept. 14)

4. Sam Houston State: Texas A&M (Sept. 7)
