FCS National Championship: Montana State vs. North Dakota State

12 p.m. on ESPN – Toyota Stadium (Frisco, Texas)

Why You Should Watch: Alabama is going for back-to-back national titles (and fourth in seven years) on Monday, but consider the dynasty North Dakota State has built in the FCS. In the last 10 seasons, the Bison have won the FCS national title eight times. All of these victories have come in Frisco, where Saturday's title tilt with Montana State will take place. The Bobcats are playing for their first national title since winning it way back in 1984. Both teams are similar in that they prefer to run the ball and get after you on defense. Don't let the initials fool you, this year's FCS title game should be a good one.
