North Dakota Fighting Hawks (9-3)


Wealth of QBs returning to FCS leaders

(STATS) - Jeremiah Briscoe and Gage Gubrud, there is company - plenty of starting quarterbacks who will return to many of the nation's better FCS programs next season.

Let's put it this way, more of the season-ending top 20-ranked teams will have new head coaches than new signal-callers in 2017.

The only Top 20 team that is losing its starting quarterback is No. 7 Jacksonville State - Eli Jenkins, a 3 1/2-year starter.
