Alcorn State Braves (5-3)


Five takeaways from FCS Week 8

(STATS) - So you know the inevitable Warriors-Cavaliers showdown in the NBA Finals that we waited for throughout last season and may do again this winter, well, the FCS seems to have it with James Madison and North Dakota State.

OK, that's overstating it because there are other talented teams capable of beating the nation's two best squads in the one-and-done playoffs. But the difference-maker for both would be having home-field advantage through the semifinals, and neither 7-0 team has done anything close to squandering that opportunity

Here are five takeaways from Week 8 of the FCS season:
