FBS stands for Football Bowl Subdivision, formerly called Division I-A. This is in contrast to the FCS, or Football Championship Subdivision, formerly known as Division I-AA. The "Bowl" vs "Championship" refers to how the 2 divisions play their post-season, with the former Division I-A teams playing in bowl games and the former Division I-AA teams playing in a playoff series culminating with a true national championship game.

When your blood pressure result is FBS 98 what does it means?

FBS = fasting blood sugar, which is not a measure of blood pressure. It is a measure of your blood sugar level after fasting. Since your FBS is less than 100 mg / dL, you are not showing signs of diabetes. This is a good FBS.
