So the Pac 12 is going to be all by themselves in not playing?

I think they're scrambling now, but I'm not sure they were as far along as the Big 10 was in terms of being able to reverse course. I think they'll try, but if they can't match the Big 10 and start by the end of October then they won't be playoff eligible and probably won't play. I think they're 50/50 right now.

NDSU attendance for the UCA Game is expected to be around 8400. Nearly half the season ticket holders said they would not go. We got our tickets reserved, my brother will be going.

Yesterday:
NCAA Council approves plan for FCS football championship in spring, playoff field trimmed to 16 teams

The FCS playoffs will be reduced from 24 teams to 16 teams and played April 18 through May 15, according to a proposal adopted by the NCAA Division I Council on Wednesday. The plan will need to be approved by the Division I Board of Directors next week.

Under the proposal, teams would be allowed to play a maximum of eight regular-season games during a period of 13 weeks leading into the beginning of the playoffs. Teams will be allowed practice and can have up to 12 hours of "countable athletics activity" between Sept. 21 and Dec. 31.

"The intent of the model is to allow maximum flexibility for conferences and schools, with an overarching goal of returning to the normal calendar for the 2021-22 academic year," read an NCAA statement on the proposal.

Only a handful of FCS programs are playing games this fall after several conferences postponed their seasons amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Once the fall cancellation mark reached 50% for FCS teams, NCAA president Mark Emmert asserted there would be no fall championships for NCAA-sponsored postseasons in fall sports. But FCS teams that are playing in the fall will have their fall games considered when the field for the FCS playoffs is determined under the proposal approved by the Division I Council on Wednesday.

MSN mock draft has Trey Lance #2. I better watch him in Green and Yellow while I can.

link

That’s not a problem in the latest projection from Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller, who indeed has Lawrence in the top spot for the Jacksonville Jaguars, but throws a huge curveball at the No. 2 selection.

Miller has the Washington Football team passing on Sewell, and even Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields, in favor of North Dakota State quarterback Trey Lance. Miller broke down his reasoning for plugging Lance in at such a high spot:

Much like the Jacksonville Jaguars, if the Washington Football Team is selecting at No. 2 overall, it likely means they would move on from second-year quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr.

But again, this is not a shot at Haskins, who is a talented and capable quarterback. It’s more a reflection of where the Super Bowl odds have this team and what direction it would go in this scenario.

So, how about Trey Lance? In his 2019 breakout campaign, he was responsible for 42 touchdowns and no interceptions—28 passing and 14 rushing. Turning on his film, you’ll think it’s a highlight breakdown instead of his full games. He’s athletic and strong-armed, and he gives you a Deshaun Watson-at-Clemson vibe. It’s exciting.

It’s hard to argue with much of what Miller says here, including the fact that if Washington is picking this high, it wouldn’t be a shock to see them move on from Haskins despite having recently invested a first-round pick in him. That said, Lance is still a huge projection at this point, and unlike his fellow Bison alum Carson Wentz, the redshirt sophomore won’t get the benefit of the Senior Bowl to prove himself against top talent and improve his stock.

Haskins would have to crater this year for Washington to spend a first round pick, at #2, on a QB like Lance. I'm not sure I see Washington picking at #2 anyway - they'll be top 10, but top 2 is rarefied air. Lance will go first round, and likely top 15, but he's still an unknown when it comes to NFL talent and expectation.

:nod: Lance is winner but the Watson comparisons are over the top. Lance has 1 year of results that are excellent, Watson had 3 years of success at Clemson and the NC games against Alabama demonstrated his grit, skills and leadership more than anything Lance has done.

CBS Sports has 3 mocks with Lance at 20, 12, 12 and Dillon Radunz at 18, 32, 13. Would be great if that happened, to get 2 Bison into the first round. Maybe sneak Cox in there by draft time for 3.

He does, but he also played for NDSU. North Carolina St claims Russell Wilson as a NFL Alum.

One of the first things he did during the post-game interview last night was to give condolences to his former Badger teammate James White.
