NCAA Football Championship: 6 Players to Watch

At long last the FCS Championship field has been narrowed down from 16 to two. And, these two surely won't disappoint in the championship game today in Frisco, Tex.

This is the North Dakota State Bison's fifth trip to the championship game in as many years, and, each time they've left Frisco, they've left with a trophy. If they win today they will set a new FCS record for consecutive national championships.

Meanwhile, the Jacksonville State Gamecocks may not have an impressive championship pedigree like the Bison, but 2015 was certainly a red-letter year for them. Their sole loss came against the FBS' Auburn Tigers, and they were even able to force overtime in that contest. Since that disappointing loss, the Gamecocks haven't lost another game, the best win-streak in the FCS.

So, with mere hours before these two football titans clash at Toyota Stadium, take a look at six players you'll definitely want to keep an eye on during the game.
