It’s chilly out and there is snow in the air. Leaves are pretty much all on the ground at this point. It kind of ushers in the back half of the football season.

College football season is almost over. In fact, for some it is over this week.

The Division II, III, and NAIA regular seasons are already over. You can check out their post seasons playoff brackets here, here, and here. The Wayne State Wildcats made the Division II bracket. For most every other team, your season is already over.

This is the last week for Ivy League football. They start later than most and end before everyone else. They only play ten games a year and they decided years ago to not participate in the FCS playoffs. So, enjoy what you can this weekend. The big game, Harvard vs. Yale, is this Saturday on ESPNU. The rest play on ESPN+.

HBCU’s will also be playing some end of season football for most of these teams this weekend. Like the Ivy, they also do not participate in the FCS Playoffs. However, a handful do play an extra game through Thanksgiving weekend. If you’re lucky, you can see a few of those games on ESPN3 and ESPN+.

This is the last week for regular season FCS football. After this weekend we have the FCS playoffs that will last through December. Where North Dakota State will most likely be champion once again...I kid, I kid...I do recommend watching the Brawl in the Wild between Montana and Montana State this weekend. Big Sky football is some of the best in the nation if you haven’t seen any of it. As a Big Sky school grad myself, I recommend it.

So, please enjoy this cold college football weekend. I’ll be happily freezing my butt off in Memorial Stadium. Hoping for the Huskers to pull off another win this season against a Wisconsin team that actually has a quarterback.
