FCS team rankings: 31st-128th

The Savvy Index uses a review of coaches, returning production of players, and trends for college football programs to project preseason rankings for all FCS college football teams.

Preseason rankings are the basis for the Index to predict the results of football games in the early season, so accuracy is vital.

Today, we are listing teams in the FCS that Savvy has ranked from 31st to 128th.  Although we won’t be providing detailed analyses of those teams, we will follow this list with Savvy’s top 30 teams as well as a preview of the Big Sky Conference and for those, we will provide analyses.

There will be some modifications to these rankings as teams begin practicing and more information is known but for now, here is Savvy’s projections for teams ranked from 31 to 128:
