Nicholls Colonels (8-4)


A sneak peek to FCS 2018

(STATS) - If you're looking for something new in the FCS, it's a good thing they don't play the games on paper.

Following North Dakota State's 17-13 win over James Madison in the national championship game last Saturday, they remain the two programs best-suited to be playing next Jan. 5 in Frisco, Texas. But the Bison are the clear favorites to add a seventh FCS title, which would break their tie with Georgia Southern for the most all-time.

At least one CAA or Missouri Valley team has appeared in every title game since 2002, and the two top conferences in the FCS have combined for 12 of the 16 national titles in that period.
