(Stats Perform) - More than four-dozen former FCS players, including All-Americans from recent national championship-winning programs North Dakota State and James Madison, were part of the eight XFL rosters that were finalized on Monday.

Former North Dakota State linebacker Nick DeLuca will play for the New York Guardians while James Madison has running back Khalid Abdullah on the DC Defenders and defensive end Andrew Ankrah with the St. Louis Battlehawks.

The XFL, which played a single season in 2001, is returning with a 10-game regular season and playoffs, beginning Feb. 8-9. Each franchise has a 52-player roster.
