The West teams host and I have them in all capitals as I believe we will see our third straight season of two West of the Mississippi schools meeting in Frisco.

An interesting fact is that both of these two teams hosted the semi-finals last year and it is the first time that the same two schools host the semi-finals in the history of the FCS playoffs.

It is odd that the two road teams are from the CAA and both won last week on the road to get to this point but I think their run of road victories will both end this week.

The Big Sky, Missouri Valley, and CAA proved in their victories last week that those three conferences are top ones. I know that the Ohio Valley and Southland both were rated higher than the Big Sky in the final regular season GPI but EWU proved with its win over OVC member Jacksonville State that it might be a little better than its #5 rating.

I think the Eagles will prove it again this week.

For the New Hampshire against NDSU game, I think the only way the Bison fall at home is to lose the turnover margin.

But we shall see. This will be a fun weekend. I have my tickets in hand to fly to Frisco so I can't wait to see my third national title game in a couple of weeks!!!
