FCS title game set for Jan. 5 in Frisco
From the news release:
A sellout crowd of 20,586 attended last year’s game, which was won 17-6 by North Dakota State over Sam Houston State. This was the first year of the game being played on Saturday after historically being played on a Friday night, including 2011 in Frisco. Eastern Washington defeated Delaware 20-19 in that game, which was the first of three scheduled championship games in Frisco.
The championship game will again be hosted by the locally based Southland Conference, the City of Frisco and the Hunt Sports Group.
The Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) is comprised of the conferences and institutions that compete in the NCAA Division I Football Championship – Big Sky, Big South, Colonial Athletic Association, Ivy League, Mid-Eastern Athletic, Missouri Valley Football, Northeast, Ohio Valley, Patriot League, Pioneer, Southern, Southland and the Southwestern Athletic. The Ivy League and Southwestern Athletic Conference choose not to participate in the football championship. The FCS embodies a tradition of excellence through high level competition, student-athlete character and sportsmanship throughout the regular season and the championship experience.
