Northern Arizona Lumberjacks (7-5)


FCS playoff attendance up over 10 percent

(STATS) - Attendance increased over 10 percent in the 2017 NCAA Division I FCS playoffs, led by the two most successful teams, national champion North Dakota State and runner-up James Madison.

The 23 playoff games drew 222,424 fans, up from 199,945 last year.

After Saturday's championship game, the NCAA incorrectly announced a total that would have been an all-time record, but it was corrected on Tuesday. The record remains 258,066 in 2015.
