Half way through the FCIAC football season and there are currently 5 unbeaten teams at the top of the standings. The good thing about this year as opposed to years past is the unbeaten teams all play at least one other unbeaten before the year is out, making the possibility of more than one team finishing unbeaten unlikely.
By the time the FCIAC championship game rolls around, current one loss teams Darien and Ridgefield could be in play for a spot in the final.
Of the 5 unbeatens, McMahon is the only one that plays just one other unbeaten, though they do face Ridgefield.
Below is a list of the 5 teams left unscathed, so far, with their home and away games listed. The games in bold, italic are the Thanksgiving games which are played after the championship game.
Next to the record are the team’s power points.
