For the first time in history, the National Championship for Div I AA will be matching two schools from the Missouri Valley Football Conference. Illinois State Redbirds(my alma mater) at 13-1 vs North Dakota St. Bison at 14-1. ESPN 2 @ 15pm Eastern (?). FEAR THE 'BIRDS!

Screw you...LOL....I am actually a Missouri State Bear alum so it is nice to see the Valley having all the love in the title game. NDSU going for 4 in a row....lol

NDSU's run is remarkable. I don't possess a rooting interest, but it'd be cool to see the Bison win another championship. The program has built itself to the elite in the FCS. Each season since 2010, the Bison has defeated one FBS school on the road:

2014 - Iowa State (34-14)
2013 - Kansas State (24-21)
2012 - Colorado State (22-7)
2011 - Minnesota (37-24)
2010 - Kansas (6-3)

CSU is not in a Power Five Conference. But 3 Big 12 victims and 1 from the Big Ten... that's impressive. I think it's also awesome the wins are on the road. Of course, FCS schools almost never receive a return home game.

The Southern Conference used to be the power, but 3 of the better programs are now FBS.

Was a pretty great game...unfortunate though for Illinois St. NDSU 29 ISU 27. Glad that the 'Birds didn't get rolled, which I thought may happen with ND State being 3x defending champs. Hope to see this keep ISU on the upside in FCS.

Congrats to NDSU on the victory. Their continued streak of FCS National Championships is remarkable. Also hats off to ILL State on making the game very competitive and an exciting finish. :clap:
