The 2024 FCS 12 game schedule trend continues… Is it possible we could see this become permanent after 2025 if most schools embrace the ’24 and ’25 calendars allowing for the possibility for a 12 game schedule?

FCS schools can only play 12 games in years when the period starting with the Thursday before Labor Day and ending with the final Saturday in November contains 14 Saturdays. The next time the calendar will allow 12 regular-season games is 2024 and again in 2025. FCS teams will go back to 11 games in 2026.

After the Trust 6 Conferences lobbied their Sidekick ,the NCAA, in 2005 to allow a 12th game vs a 63 Scholarship program > 2005 to count = to an 85 Scholarship Team the Dilution of conference regular season meaning accelerated.
In My Researched Opinion, the Trust 4 & Dependent 5 Conferences need to delete the official 12th Game to not counting toward 85 Scholarship Programs post season qualifying Mark.
63 Scholarship Programs have a 24 Team Playoff qualifying Standard of 11 Games which weeds out All the pretenders by the 1st week of the Playoff.
