The West Virginia Mountaineers have an unfamiliar opponent on Sept. 15 at FedEx Field. 

The James Madison Dukes have knocked off a top team in the past.  In fact, JMU was only the second FCS team to knock off a nationally ranked team. 

Of course that game was against No. 13 Virginia Tech on September 11, 2010. 

Any team is capable of an upset each week, but the Mountaineers will be the heavy favorite going into the neutral territory of Landover, Md.

With the game against JMU, West Virginia is guaranteed $2.3 million.  Both schools gain great opportunities from the game—whether it's a monetary advantage or the chance for national spotlight.

Here's a look at the keys to the game for the Mountaineers.
