The college football season is back in full swing and the FCS has returned to action this fall after playing in the spring due to the coronavirus-delayed season just months ago. Ahead of the upcoming week, we get a look at how each team stacks up against the competition.
On Monday, the AFCA Coaches Poll for Week 12 was announced.
Sam Houston and James Madison continue to hang on to the top two spots, while North Dakota State jumped into the top three after a win over No. 16 South Dakota. Rounding out the top five is Kennesaw State, Montana, and Eastern Washington.
Sam Houston is the lone undefeated team in the country, while seven other teams earned a bye week as the FCS playoffs prepare to kick off.
