A titanic MVFC matchup and Coach Prime's team on national television highlight the Week 6 slate

There are 26 games on tap today, including potentially the game of the year — or at least the spring. Looking suddenly mortal, North Dakota State will have to defend its claim as the best team in the state, let alone the FCS, when it faces North Dakota. Coach Prime also will finally be on national television when Deion Sanders' Jackson State team travels to face Alabama State on ESPN2.
So if you're wondering "What college football games are on today?" know this: There are 26 involving FCS teams scheduled for today, Saturday, March 20.

Best College Football Games on TV Today
North Dakota at North Dakota State, 3:30 p.m. on NBC ND/MidCoSN/ESPN+
In the latest Athlon Sports FCS Power Poll, the Fighting Hawks overtook the Bison as the top-ranked team in the rugged Missouri Valley Football Conference. That can be debated either way, but these teams will finally be able to settle it on the football field Saturday afternoon. North Dakota State has yet to get its offense going and will face a tough challenge in UND, which gets after the quarterback well.
Jackson State at Alabama State, 4 p.m. on ESPN2
Jackson State may not have posted a winning season in six years, but Deion Sanders has the Tigers off to a 3-0 start in his first season as a head coach. The Tigers have the No. 4 scoring offense and No. 10 total offense in FCS, which will be put to the test against a tough Hornets defense.
