Week 6 of FCS action resulted in some shuffling of top-10 teams with Elon’s upset of James Madison and Weber State’s stunning loss to unranked Northern Arizona.
Now halfway through the season, the conference races begin to heat up and each game has increasingly more significance for those teams that might be on the bubble for an at-large bid into the postseason.
Here are the FCS games to watch in Week 7.
No. 3 Eastern Washington at No. 13 Weber State, 6:05 p.m. ET
Had Weber State (3-2, 1-1 Big Sky) won last week, this would likely be one of the top games of the season. Even with the loss, the Wildcats have a huge opportunity against the third-ranked Eagles (5-1, 3-0 Big Sky) at home to regain their footing in the Big Sky.
Weber State has struggled in the passing game this year, especially last week with three interceptions and just 115 yards. However, their defense is best in the Big Sky, allowing 374 yards per game, and they have racked up 17 sacks and 18 turnovers in five games. Senior All-American linebacker LeGrand Toia leads the defense with seven tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks.
