2017 FCS Bracketology: 7.0

2017 FCS Bracketology: 7.0

The FCS Playoffs committee will release its first rankings next week, which will give us some enlightenment on what they are thinking on the first two months of the season.

I believe I have a solution to the six Valley teams dilemma. Have two play each other in the first round. With Northern Iowa’s and Illinois State’s success last week, they have played themselves into the field and they don’t play this year.

Here’s a look at my projected field. Digest. Debate. Discuss.
