Every Monday after the Stats Perform FCS Top 25 is released, we will publish the resumes for the Top 10-ranked teams.
The resumes, which will paint the picture of what the playoff committee looks at before Selection Sunday (although watching the games gives the clearest picture), include overall record, record against FCS opponents, Division 1 wins, non-counter wins, FBS wins and losses, ranked wins at the time of the game, wins against teams currently ranked in the Top 25, and strength of schedule.
Top 10 Teams & Their Resumes
Teams 1-10 are via this week’s Stats Perform poll
Then-Ranked Wins are wins against ranked teams at the time of the game
Now-Ranked Wins are wins against teams currently ranked
Strength of schedule is through current games played
