The CAA Is The Best Conference In The Championship Subdivision

The Colonial Athletic Association is the best conference in the Football Championship Subdivision—and it may not even really be close.

Now, we know what you might be thinking. Yes, we recently partnered with the CAA to stream 50ish games per season live on FloFootball beginning this fall. And, yes, North Dakota State has been the undisputed kings of the FCS since 2011.

But, this isn’t about an ulterior motive for propping up the league and it’s really not about the Bison, either. It’s about math and the respective FCS conferences in their entirety.

Since the CAA was formed in 2007, 51 teams have won their way into the FCS Playoffs. The conference with the second most playoff appearances in that time period? The Missouri Valley with just 38 appearances. Three different CAA teams have won a national title (Richmond in ’08, Villanova in ’09 and James Madison most recently in ’16). No other conference has had more than one program win a national title over that span.

All told, the CAA has had five different representatives reach the national championship game over the past 12 seasons (Delaware in ’07 and ’10, Towson in ’13 and James Madison in ’18). No other league has produced more than half that many finalists.

Last season, a record six teams from the CAA made the now 24-team playoff, led by seventh-seeded Maine, who bowed out to Eastern Washington in the national semifinals. It was the fourth time since ’07 that the conference has placed at least five teams in the bracket. Only the Missouri Valley Conference has had five—twice, in ’14 and ’15.

Needless to say, the quality of the conference has not been lost on professional scouts, either.

The CAA has had 38 players selected in the past dozen NFL Drafts, including Joe Flacco (Delaware), Tim Hightower (Richmond), Terrance West (Towson), Tanoh Kpassagnon (Villanova) and Nasir Adderley (Delaware).

In others words, for those of you interested in locking in on the cream of the FCS crop for the foreseeable future, we have excellent news. FloFootball is the home of just that—and, thus, the perfect place for you.

C’mon, you knew that was coming.
