Best Answer

The Football Championship Subdivision is the former division 1-AA schools. They are so named because they advance through a playoff format and a championship game to determine their champion, unlike the Football Bowl Subdivision, the old division 1-A, which relies on Bowls, Polls, and the BS-BCS to "crown" a champion.
