Both teams have only 1 loss...to the same team. UNI fans once again lamenting what could've been this year.

We should try like hell to get NDSU in the MVC conference.

Things are looking great for this conference. Two teams in the championship and two teams that have struggled hire Coach Stec and Bo Pelini. Best FCS conference by a mile. Future is very bright for the MVFC.

First time in FCS history that 2 teams from the same conference have squared off in the championship game...VERY cool 8-)

Congrats out to the ISU Redbirds and 3 time defending FCS champs NDSU. Should be a crazy good game.

ROCK IT MVFC!!!!!! :dance:

Cannot wait for this game. Was just looking on Sagarin ratings and the MVC Football conference is rated better than the MAC, C-USA, and SunBelt. Maybe after the P5 break off, we can have our conference on the same footing as these conferences, since you know, we're better.

The MAC has a lot of dead weight but its top teams would likely win the FCS title. Top ranked FCS New Hampshire lost to Toledo 54-20, and Toledo was 2nd in the MAC West division. UNI beat both title game participants today and they lost to a bad Hawaii team. Last year EIU finished ranked #2 and lost to the MAC. Yes NDSU beat Iowa State but the Clones were winless in the B12.

You have to give the Bison props for winning four straight though, no matter the division. I don't usually watch lower division football, but when I do I root against the Deadbirds. :D

That was a really fun game to watch, even as someone who wanted both to lose

Crazy good FCS championship game played before a national TV audience. NDSU and the ISU Redbirds both put it all on the line with the Bison coming from behind with a minute left to pull out a wild win.

The MVFC should really well today in an exciting game. Have to love it!! :Cheers:

MVFC IS the best in FCS--and depending on the seedings--could likely land 2 teams in the title game again--NDSU had lots of seniors--but will be good again--UNI / YSU now has Nebraska's old coach) WIU will all be good again next year--and ISU was very young and will likely be a favorite to win the conference next year. Those teams would beat a LOT of FBS teams IMO--this conference is really good!!
