2012 FCS Championship Schedule: Sam Houston State Books Ticket To Jan. 7 Matchup

One half of the 2012 FCS Championship is set after Sam Houston State's win on Friday night. But the last game of the FCS season is a ways off, with the championship set for Jan. 7, 2012.

After battling through the FCS playoff bracket, Sam Houston State has three weeks to rest and get healthy before taking the field one last time this season. The Bearkats remained perfect on the year with a 31-28 win over Montana on Friday night in the FCS semifinals, and will face the winner of Saturday's matchup between Georgia Southern and North Dakota State.

The FCS Championship is a ways off, though. It will be played at a neutral site, in Frisco, Texas, on Jan. 7, giving both teams three weeks to prepare. The championship game is a bit of a curveball, as the rest of the playoff rounds were played one week after another, all the way through the semifinals.

If you're looking to get a head-start on the FCS Championship, here's the information.

Date: Jan. 7, 2012

Time: 1 p.m. Eastern

Place: Pizza Hut Park, Frisco Texas
