An increase in the number of FCS playoff seeds is in the works with hopes it can be implemented by the upcoming season.
The current FCS playoff structure has been in place since the field expanded in 2013 — 24 teams with eight seeds. How the bracket is formed and the criteria the playoff committee needs to follow has been scrutinized for years. But it hit its peak last season, resulting in perhaps the biggest push for changes to be made by fans, media, and administrators at FCS schools/conferences.
A pivotal change has been presented to the NCAA this offseason, and that is to seed 12 or 16 teams in the bracket.
