South Dakota State Jackrabbits (9-3)


FCS playoffs review: Quarterfinals

(STATS) - There's an intruder in the FCS national semifinals, but unseeded Youngstown State has proven it belongs.

Top-seeded North Dakota State, second-seeded Eastern Washington and fourth-seeded James Madison - all 12-1 conference champs - have done their part to keep the 24-team bracket to form.

The exception is the No. 3 seed, Jacksonville State, fell to Youngstown State last week, and the surging Penguins (11-3) kept the momentum going in the national quarterfinals this weekend.
