SDSU Football (@GoJacksFB) will be held on September 17, 2022.

The Bulldogs haven't faced an FCS team yet this season, nor have they faced a team the caliber of the Jackrabbits. In their season opener, SDSU pushed Iowa to the brink, which would have easily made for one of the greatest FCS-FBS upsets of the season.

Iowa won 7-3 with two safeties, and the Hawkeyes' elite defense contained a high-octane Jackrabbits offense. After coming up short in the 2021 spring championship game and falling short in the FCS semifinals for the fall season, this years SDSU team has FCS national championship dreams.

SDSU played much better against California-Davis, scoring 24 points, but the Jackrabbits won the game 24-22. UC-Davis is playing in one of the toughest leagues in the FCS, and the Aggies started the season with a Pac-12 Conference team in California.

Butler participates in the Pioneer League, a non-scholarship conference, and the winner of the conference rarely advances to the FCS playoffs. The Bulldogs will need to find a way to slow down the Jackrabbits' biggest playmakers, running back Isaiah Davis and wide receiver Jaxon Janke.

Davis has 162 yards rushing on 43 carries thus far, and he is able to make plays from the backfield. He has three catches for 33 yards this season.

Janke is the leading receiver for the Jackrabbits with five receptions for 60 yards, an average of 12 yards per catch. His brother, Jadon, is also a playmaking threat with an average of 11 yards per catch.

Butler Football (@ButlerUFootball) is scheduled to air on September 12, 2022.

Butler gained confidence in offense after two outstanding performances against lesser-known schools in recent weeks. Bulldogs quarterback Bret Bushka has 426 yards passing and five touchdowns versus two interceptions. He also has 140 yards rushing and a touchdown.

The Bulldogs will have to find a way to defeat the Jackrabbits' defense, which shut down a Big Ten Conference team in Iowa. Plus, they will have to contend with a large crowd of more than 10,000 at Dana J. Dykhouse Stadium.
