  • Army will play its second consecutive FCS opponent this Saturday when it hosts FCS Colgate at noon ET on CBSSN.
  • Colgate, the No. 6 FCS team, boasts a defense that only allows 1.87 yards per rush, which leads all FBS and FCS teams.
  • At least one streak will end this weekend: Army's twelve game home winning streak or Colgate's perfect 9-0 record.

While all of you figure out if Alabama will beat Citadel by 50, 60 or 70, I’m more focused on another FBS-FCS matchup: Army vs. Colgate — and not for the ferry ride you can take to the game or the official Colgate polka band.

The Raiders (that’s Colgate’s mascot) are by far the best FCS team playing an FBS opponent this weekend. They will arrive in West Point as the No. 6 ranked FCS team, sporting a perfect 9-0 record — thanks to an absolutely dominant defense.

Let’s dig into these eye-popping numbers before getting into which side (or total) I would recommend for those that dabble in the FCS betting market.
