Northern Colorado is the latest in the FCS to announce they are opting out of the spring season.

Most FCS schools went to play in the spring. Really, just three schools played what would be considered a full schedule; Stephen F. Austin (6-3), Central Arkansas (5-4), and Eastern Kentucky (3-6). The other 124 teams either attempted to play and played a few games or ditched the fall season completely.
