FCS Team Records Versus FBS

Since the Division I split into I-A and I-AA (now called FBS and FCS), there have been 3,099 games played between FBS and FCS teams through the spring 2021 season. Teams have come and gone and even come back again at the FCS level.

Below is a list of FCS versus FBS records for each team that has played in the FCS since 1978. This list includes teams that were previously part of the FCS and have now moved to the FBS. For example, Akron was an FCS team from 1980 through 1986 and moved to the FBS starting in 1987. Akron’s record (and all teams shown on the list) only reflects their time as an FCS team against FBS opponents.

The records for all FBS teams against FCS opponents since 1978 can be found here.

All records are current through the 2020-21 season and only include teams classified as FCS from 1978 through the spring of 2021. Ties were a possible outcome prior to the 1996 season. The records below are based on this spreadsheet that we cultivated from historical records. A list of all FCS over FBS victories can be found here.

The below table is current through games as of March 7, 2021.
