(Stats Perform) - Many FCS programs are preparing to play the majority if not all of their 2020 schedule during the spring semester.
Not all schools are participating in the first spring season, but some "firsts" are set to draw added attention. Few FCS coaching hires have drawn as much attention as Deion Sanders at Jackson State. A banner crowd might fill Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium in a normal season, but a 25 percent restriction on capacity still won't limit the excitement on Feb. 21 when the Tigers kick off their spring season against Edward Waters in the W.C. Gorden Classic.
Former Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops, Heisman Trophy winner Carson Palmer of USC, Clemson running back C.J. Spiller and Eastern Illinois star Tony Romo headline the 2021 College Football Hall of Fame class announced Monday. Kansas State's Darren Sproles, who still holds 21 school and Big 12 records, and Tennessee linebacker Al Wilson, a team captain and the only All-American on the 13-0 Vols team that won the 1998 BCS National Championship, also were selected.
