Top story lines of the 2016 FCS season

(STATS) - The 2016 FCS season kicked off with a terrific game in August, but, oh, does it need an even better one in the national championship game on Jan. 7.

In between, there's been yet another memorable season of story lines. But one of the bigger ones isn't positive as the two finalists with a national championship history - Youngstown State and James Madison - will be without players due to recent suspensions.

Following is a countdown of top story lines. We've made it an unlucky 13 because of the awkward finish to the season.
