9#20 Incarnate Word FCS Football 2022 PreviewIncarnate WordCardinals smashed Lamar, 56-17. This week's trip to Nicholls should not be a problem either, but that's why they play them.11

11#13 Chattanooga FCS Football 2022 PreviewChattanoogaMocs won at East Tennessee State, 24-16. Good solid win. Home date with VMI should serve as a tune-up before playing Mercer.12
12Jackson StateTigers had a tougher than expected time at Alabama A&M, but still won by two touchdowns. This week with Bethune-Cookman should be much easier.10
13SamfordBulldogs had troubles for a second straight week. Against Furman is one thing, against Wofford is concerning. They get a bye to work it out.13

20Eastern KentuckyColonels had the week off to prepare for next week's game hosting Sam Houston.20
