One of the many unique parts of the FCS playoffs is the three-week break in between the semifinals and title game. It's probably too long of a break for fans getting sick of the trash talk and coaches getting sick of combing through film to find that last edge.
One group that probably doesn't mind the break is the seniors. It's rare in football to know exactly when your last game is going to be. But for Eastern Washington and North Dakota State, their ginormous senior classes get three weeks to mentally and physically get ready for their last game as a member of their program.

The game on Jan. 5 features two of the bigger senior classes to play in the title game since the championship was held in Frisco, Texas, in 2010. Combined, it's easily the most seniors, injuries or not, to be a part of the title game.
NOTES: Champions are italicized. Senior classes are per team rosters with redshirts/injuries not taken into account.
