2018 FCS Bracketology: 8.0

2018 FCS Bracketology: 8.0

I have caved. After holding out as long as possible, I have added North Carolina A&T to the field. The Aggies have a 7-2 record, an FBS win, a nice win over Jacksonville State, but with a head to head loss to Florida A&M, the Rattlers would go to the Celebration Bowl and send A&T to the playoffs.

I mentioned earlier this week about the Colonial getting six teams into the playoffs. I don’t see it happening though, Towson has two tough games to end the season with a roadie at Elon and then host James Madison. They split and they make it at 7-4. Lose both and they’re home.

Some may wonder why SDSU is so high. Think the Jacks are playing well, I don’t see SIU or USD slowing them down, that they finish 8-2 and the committee puts them on the opposite side of NDSU. Or at least they better.

Digest. Debate. Discuss.

    Interesting that Craig Haley puts Madison into the NDSU side of the bracket. I do think you have picked the best teams from the bubble to make the cut.
    Also, didn’t 9/11 prevent a previous Bison vs. Maine game?

    8 or 9 teams in this bracket have visited the Fargodome, only two on the Bison side and they could play each other early leaving the chance to only see one previous dome opponent (JSU played the Bison at the other “home field” – Frisco), if my recollections are correct. This should make those wanting to see new teams happy. On the flip side, you probably have 11 teams not so thrilled with that prospect.
