In previous years there were some FCS teams I'd probably have picked, but not this year.

Theoretically it could happen. Think Appalachian State vs Michigan, James Madison vs Virginia Tech.

Wow, I didn't mean to offend you. Was it really that dumb of a question? Personally I'd love to see the #1 FCS team go up against the #25 FBS team and see how it turns out.

We've seen it happen before though. It is not as though FBS and FCS teams don't play each other.

It's still not likely, but it's much more common than it used to be. The talent gap between the FBS and FCS has closed considerably because the number of high school football players is increasing every year while the number of available slots at FBS schools stays essentially the same.

A top-tier FCS player today would have been an average FBS player 20 years ago.

I know that it is a different sport but every year in college basketball, a few D3 schools defeat D1 schools. The gap between these is greater than the gap between FBS and FCS football schools I imagine.
