Hardly 'Transfer U,' Towson ready for LSU

BATON ROUGE, La. -- Like a lot of powerhouse programs in the FCS, Towson has a roster dotted with transfers from big-time programs.

It's a little advantage FCS schools -- which play with 22 fewer scholarships than their FBS counterparts and have a playoff to determine a national champion -- have over smaller FBS programs. Transferring to the FCS allows a player exiting a major program to play right away instead of sitting out a year at another FBS school. Conversely, FCS schools can fill holes with "free agent" transfers.

Towson (2-1), which visits No. 3 LSU (4-0) Saturday, has 13 FBS transfers. Considering they came to Towson from places like Georgia, South Carolina and Virginia Tech, one would expect most to be starters.
