Almost every team plays one, very bad idea.It is a disgrace. I hope more teams take up the action and DO NOT play those teams. Only 3 of the 124+ FBS teams have not played a FCS team since the division was made those 3 are UCLA, Southern Cal, and Notre Dame.

I think this is all related to strength of schedule and concerns that a 12-1 or 11-2 Big 10 team would get squeezed out of a 4 team playoff, particularly adding traditional weak football programs in MD and Rutgers.Some of the ranking evaluates both your strength of schedule, but also the strength of schedule of your opponents. If there is a cluster around the top 2 to 8 teams in the polls, the rankings could influence the committee to take a #5 Ohio State over a #4 Stanford or #3 Oklahoma, if its computer rankings are higher.Getting a team regularly in the playoffs can only be a good thing for the Big 10 and the BTN as it tries to expand.
