My opinion:
1. The Div. III team.
2. The FCS team.

The level between high school and college is a pretty big difference. They train in high school but nothing like that in college. The college team would win easily.

As far as worst FCS vs best FBS, the worst FCS team is Western Kentucky who just moved up from FCS. Now if you take that they didn't win the FBS championship in years past I would say the FBS had a pretty good shot at a win.

FCS is formerly D1AA. I think their best team could beat the worst Div. 1 team. Things like that happen all the time. App. St./Michigan.

I'd say there are plenty of FCS teams (not just the best) who could beat FBS teams.

I think that the best high school team in the nation could wipe the floor with the worst Division III college team.

Look at it this way: Every football player goes through high school. However, the best ones all go to Division I and maybe Division II colleges. Only a handful of great high school players make it only to Division III. There isn't a huge difference in the talent level. Division III colleges aren't exactly high profile.

When you put it like that it seems to me that it could may well be possible.

but probably many of the players on the best highschool team will never play even division 3 football. The high school team may have a few d1 prospects and a handful of d2, but most of the team will probably never play football again.
I think the d3 team wins, though not a blowout if the high school team has a few d1 stars. The d3 team would wear them down though as their line would probably be much bigger and stronger
