After the Owls 12-2 campaign in the 2017 season, the sports writers from around the FCS are starting to really give Kennesaw State their attention. Hero Sports writer, Sam Herder recently wrote an article called “Top 10 Way-Too-Early Favorites to Win the 2018 FCS Title. Within the article Herder gives his take on the teams in which he feels could make a run in the 2018 FCS Playoffs. There are some teams listed that seem to always be there but he adds a few new names to the list, one of those is the Kennesaw State Owls. See where he lists the Owls in the Top-10 by reading below:
The 2017 FCS season saw perhaps it’s least surprising matchup in the national championship game. Most people predicted James Madison and North Dakota State would square off. But that didn’t mean there weren’t any surprises during the playoffs. How about Kennesaw State almost making a run to the semifinals in its first playoff appearance? Or Weber State almost knocking off the defending national champs and eventual runner-ups?
ast year around this time, we did this exact same article. While the No. 1-3 teams made it to the semifinals and the top two teams played in Frisco, Texas, the rest of the list, well, wasn’t really all too close. But that’s what makes the FCS fun. The surprise teams that emerge come November and December.
So let’s do it again and predict the early favorites to win it all next season. Learning from our mistake last season, we’re going to go out on a limb on some of these and pick some potential surprises.
