Well, we finally made it.
The 2020 FCS Jersey Countdown reached its conclusion, navigating its way through a pandemic, conference postponements, players heading to the transfer portal in rapid fashion and a website transition that saw some hiccups.
The full 99-1 countdown can be found right here. You’ll notice some of the articles don’t have links to them (they were lost in the transition). You’ll also notice some of these players are no longer on their team’s rosters. We decided not to go back and change a jersey number every time a player transferred.
Here are the teams and conferences with the most players named on the 2020 FCS Jersey Countdown.
