Prospect Preview: Small School Weekendpalooza!

With almost every FBS team on a bye this week as they prepare for the start of the bowl season there is still football this weekend. All three of the lower divisions of the NCAA are in the middle of their playoffs as the FCS enters the quarterfinal round and both Division II and Division III are in the semi-finals. In addition to these eight playoff games there is also a SWAC championship game. The SWAC does not chose to participate in the FCS playoffs which is why they have their title game in the middle of the playoffs.

    No players from Montana Grizzlies? What about Trumaine Johnson? Others?

  2. D Hawk says:

    If Akpla could learn some discipline in his route-running he could possibly be a really good WR. Nice list…
