FRISCO, Texas -- The teams are getting settled in Frisco on Thursday as North Dakota State eyes a fifth consecutive FCS championship. But, Jacksonville State stands in the way of that. The Gamecocks enter the title game riding a 12-game winning streak, the longest active streak in the FCS.
Jacksonville State’s head coach John Grass says his team is relaxed headed into the championship.
“We don't look at stuff as pressures. We go out and have fun and play ball, if there's any pressure, it would be [North Dakota State.] They've won four in a row. So to lose a streak, I'd hate to be the team that loses the streak. So this is our first rodeo.”
Early Thursday morning, Grass’ guys were relaxed, whooping and hollering as soon as team pictures ended.
On the count of the three – everyone say cheese!
