FCS first-round playoff review

(STATS) - The regionalization of the FCS playoffs isn't the most popular aspect of the postseason, but it's led to some terrific matchups following Saturday's exciting first round.

There will be four second-round games that match conference opponents and the natural nonconference matchup between Jacksonville State and Kennesaw State, which are separated by 90 miles, will get started a year ahead of next year's scheduled meeting.

Here's a quick review of the first-round games and a schedule for Round 2 (all games Dec. 2):
