Division I FCS football season

The 2014 NCAA Division I FCS football season, part of college football in the United States, is organized by the National Collegiate Athletic Association at the Division I Football Championship Subdivision level.

Notable changes

Under a standard provision of NCAA rules, all FCS programs were allowed to play 12 regular-season games (not counting conference title games) in 2014. In years when the period starting with the Thursday before Labor Day and ending with the final Saturday in November contains 14 Saturdays, FCS programs may play 12 games instead of the regular 11. After this season, the next season in which 12-game seasons are allowed will be 2019.[1]

Conference changes and new programs

Several teams changed conferences from the 2013 season, with all moves officially taking effect on July 1, 2014.
