In the always tough position of choosing FCS games of the week before the season begins I made a 2013 list. So many great games happening in the same week makes it even more difficult.
It is regrettable that some conferences were edged out by other games, notably the SWAC, Patriot League, Pioneer Football League and Northeast Conference. I also did not include any teams that are transitioning out of the FCS. These are games of teams competing for the NCAA Division I title. I noted
College Sporting News is pleased to use this one day to celebrate the choices, dreams and aspirations of these fine football student-athletes and the institutions that provide the opportunity.
It is a big day for the student-athletes signifying their intent to participate in the football programs at the schools and conferences of the Division I Football Championship Subdivision.
Of course all the conference and schools do not announce their lists at the same time so the
Games over and the D-I champ game will be a rematch of 2011. NDSU vs. SHSU!
Only four playoff games as we get down to the nitty gritty of the D-I Championships. Add in the SWAC Champ game and we have a nice weekend spread over two days.
