A trip down the AGS Poll is next up as usual to see who should be where and how the voters did this week...according to these two soothsayers.
Next up Lance & Kris go over some things they think we all learned this week including...
Conference title and especially auto-bid races are looking to getting exciting while a few appear to be all but clinched including MVFC, Southland, & Patriot.
Northern Iowa hates letting their fans feel comfortable in November.
The OVC may very well be a 2 bid league.
Colgate’s defense is nasty good.

TOPIC 1: Games
Maine 55 Jacksonville State 27
Weber State 48 Southeast Missouri State 23
North Dakota State 52 Montana State 10
Colgate 23 James Madison 20
South Dakota State 51 Duquesne 6
Kennesaw State 13 Wofford 10
Eastern Washington 42 Nicholls State 21
UC Davis 23 Northern Iowa 16
Topic 2: What did we learn?
1) Maine and Weber have offenses
2) The Playoff Commitee got the seeds right
3) Less rationalization can mean two conferences get 5 teams in the quarters. Is that a bad thing?
Rank #4: The FCS Wedge – 2018-0919 - Week 4 PREVIEW
Samford @ Chattanooga
The Bulldogs need this game more than the Mocs do, will that make a difference?
Sacramento State @ Montana
Montana is giving up less than 70 yards rushing per game but the Hornet’s Kevin Thompson is a very capable passer averaging around 300 yards per game so far this year.
Sam Houston State @ Nicholls State
Is this a must win game for either team?
Richmond @ Stony Brook
Seems like this could be a very good, close game in the CAA this week.
Idaho @ UC-Davis This is the first Big Sky game for Idaho since 1995 when they beat Boise State University in both teams final game in the BSC before their move to FBS.
Casey Kasem visited me in a dream and asked me to include that the #1 song that week was...
How will cancelled games affect the rest of the season and potential playoff selections?
A discussion on some slow starts.

3. After a roller coaster year, Maine needs to win 1 home game to be sole CAA conference champions.

Near the end of the show Lance & Kris go over the three big questions for the first week of the FCS season!
1) What will be the best shots at FCS over FBS upsets?
2) Give me one team out of the top 10 that will earn a seed this year.
3) Give me one team in the current top 10 that will miss the playoffs all together.
Lance has more that one so this ought to be interesting.
