We are less than a week away from knowing exactly who’s going where in the 2021 FCS playoffs and with only one more slate of games left to decide everything, there’s bound to be some major implications on the line come Saturday. The playoff landscape will be shaped greatly by the outcomes of the five following contests.
5. #16 South Dakota at #4 North Dakota State
Normally a Coyotes-Bison matchup to end the season wouldn’t catch much attention, but thanks to last weekend’s wild ending in Vermillion over in-state rival South Dakota State, the Coyotes (7-3) have newfound life entering the final week and suddenly this contest is a lot more interesting.
