      Reasons why the FCS is slumping against the FBS

      The Bison dynasty - a winner of eight of the last nine national titles - has beaten its last six FBS opponents, yet hasn't played one since 2016. The Bison were supposed to face Oregon on Sept. 5, but the game was canceled when the Pac-12 decided not to play this fall. After FCS teams averaged nine wins a season from 2010-18, they went just 3-111 (.027) last year and are off to an 0-14 start this season (Abilene Christian is a mere four-point underdog at UTEP late Saturday).

      What FCS schedules in spring may look like

      All 13 conferences postponed their conference schedules due to concerns surrounding COVID-19. Among 127 overall programs, 15 are playing at least one nonconference game this fall, and a few of them don't plan to play in the spring semester. A shorter regular season from late February to mid-April will not allow for many nonconference games.
