FBS stands for Football Bowl Subdivision. FBS was formerly known as the division I-A. It majorly conducts sort of bowl in their post seasonal games. Its games are not very much organized. FCS is the abbreviated form of Football Championship Subdivision; this division focuses on some sort of playoffs that will, in the end, result in a championship grand game finale. Sixteen teams normally battle their way through the process of knock out or elimination phase.

FCS was formerly known as Division I-AA. Though both FCS and FBS are contained within the scope and jurisdiction of the National College Athletic Association (NCAA), the FCS has the committee of the I-AA for the play 0ff selection; the committee determines the team ranking who will participate in the playoffs. FBS is governed by another body, which is the Bowl Championship Series. FBS gives scholarships to 85 qualifies players, while FCS gives scholarships to 63 players.
