This Saturday's Southern Utah-Weber State football game will feature more than 30 returned Mormon missionaries.

In connection with this Big Sky Conference matchup, here is a list of returned missionaries who play for college teams in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS), as well as other classifications outside the Football Bowl Subdivison (FBS).

In addition to players at SUU and Weber State, the list includes returned missionaries from Butler, Cal Poly, Florida A&M, Idaho State, Montana, Northern Arizona, Fort Lewis College, Dixie State, Southern Virginia and Snow College.

If you know of an FCS college football player we have missed, please send an email to ttoone@deseretnews.com with the name of the player, his team and where he served his mission.

I cannot stand the Deseret News and their lists. Do they really think anyone is going to click 84 times to see everyone on this list?

Ktar! Yes! I would do that! Thanks Deseret News.


KTAR, here's a novel idea, don't read the lists. Problem solved. BTW, I like information that some of these lists provide.

Thanks for the FCS List. Technically SVU, Dixie State, Fort Lewis, etc are not FCS, but Division II/III.

Gannon Conway, starting D-lineman, for Arizona State. We can verify he is a starter because he had a sack and a tackle-for-loss on the first two plays of yesterday's game against Utah.
