Top-seeded South Dakota State takes on No. 2 seed Sam Houston on Sunday, guaranteeing that one of the Football Championship Subdivision playoff regulars will become a first-time champion. This is the 43rd title game in the division formerly known as I-AA.

The unusual delay in play comes as a result of Covid-19 but there is some speculation this could become the norm.

BetOnline analysts tell Gambling911.com "There is a lot of talk among the 'powers that be' that some are considering permanently moving the FCS season to the Spring at some point down the road, which would provide us year-round football."

Music to the ears of bookies across North America for sure.

But ratings, while solid, have not been strong enough to push for a permanent spring move.

A different Dakota is in Frisco with eight-time champion North Dakota State not there from Fargo for only the second time in 10 seasons. Sam Houston (9-0) has a shot at a perfect season while K.C. Keeler can become the winningest coach in FCS playoff history and the first to win titles at multiple schools.

Delaware grad Keeler won a championship in 2003 at his alma mater, which is what South Dakota State alumnus John Stiegelmeier is now attempting in his 24th season coaching the Jackrabbits (8-1).
