College football is the only sport that divides Division I into subcategories known as FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) and FCS (Football Championship Subdivision). Teams in the FBS, previously known as Division I-A, are usually found in larger colleges with bigger budgets because they must meet certain attendance numbers to retain their FBS status. At the end of the season, the two highest ranking teams will compete in the BCS National Championship Game. In contrast, FCS teams (previously known as Division I-AA) must win four or five playoff games.
