    A few years ago, Pat Devlin and Bo Levi Mitchell went to college dreaming of leading teams to a BCS bowl, hoping the computers might even land them in the national championship game.

    Well, they made it to the title game -- of the Football Championship Subdivision.

    Formerly known as Division I-AA, and best known as the highest level of college football decided through a playoff, the FCS will determine its champion Friday night when Devlin leads perennial Delaware against Mitchell and first-time finalist Eastern Washington.

    Mitchell's college career began at SMU, about 20 miles from the suburban Dallas stadium hosting the game.

    Devlin transferred from Penn State to Delaware. Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco led the Blue Hens to the FCS title game three years ago; they won it in 2003.

    The FCS is Friday night at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco. Kickoff is at 6:03 p.m.
