Dom’s 2018 FCS Poll – Week 1

Dom’s 2018 FCS Poll – Week 1

The first weekend of the FCS season is in the books and the division had an impressive weekend. Five schools knocked off their big brothers from the FBS, including one Power Five win, with Nicholls beating Kansas. Losses by Jacksonville State, New Hampshire and Delaware were headscratchers, while North Carolina A&T is clearly the early story of the season with road wins over Jacksonville State and FBS East Carolina.

James Madison’s loss to North Carolina State doesn’t hurt them in my poll, the Dukes played a solid game and could have won if they got a couple of stops. The teams that won FBS games moved up in my poll.
