Reasons why the FCS is slumping against the FBS

(Stats Perform) - The FCS level could sure use a North Dakota State matchup against an FBS program.

The Bison dynasty - a winner of eight of the last nine national titles - has beaten its last six FBS opponents, yet hasn't played one since 2016. The Bison were supposed to face Oregon on Sept. 5, but the game was canceled when the Pac-12 decided not to play this fall.

North Dakota State has played the largest role in the FCS' success against FBS programs in the last 10 years, but the lower half of Division I is no longer sneaking up on the upper half. After FCS teams averaged nine wins a season from 2010-18, they went just 3-111 (.027) last year and are off to an 0-15 start this season.
