    The Division I Football Championship matchup strikes a chord with fans.

    A college football champion will be crowned this weekend -- without any chants of "Geaux Tigers" or "Roll Tide."

    The NCAA Division I Football Championship game pits North Dakota State's Bison against Sam Houston State's Bearkats in Frisco's Pizza Hut on Saturday.

    Unlike the major college ranks, which are still debating whether a Alabama deserves a second shot at LSU, the Bison and Bearkats have earned their title shot the old-fashioned way -- through a playoff.

    Frisco is already a winner. The game is a sellout, and the residual impact of tourism, national TV exposure and social media equals a multimillion-dollar bonanza for one of the fastest-growing cities in North Texas.

    The Division I Football Championship matchup strikes a chord with fans.

    The game kicks off at noon on Saturday, and while there may not be as much NFL talent on the field, there will be great football -- and a champion decided by the play on the field and, hopefully, nothing else.
