On this episode, Sam goes through the Top 10-ranked FCS teams and their path to get one of the eight playoff seeds. He dives into resumes, remaining games, how many ranked wins these teams could have, and where they could land in the playoff seeding. How high could a team be seeded if they win out? Or if a team drops a game, how far could they fall?
