There has been rumors of a conference classic similar to the MWC-MVC with a like football conference. Could this be accomplished in a one game postseason format (i.e. CIT model)?

The top team in each conference not involved in FCS playoffs could host with the next best team in each conference being placed against them as a road team. To provide extra incentive for better non-conference scheduling each team selected could be required to have at least .500 overall record with only one non-DI team counting. 

An example 2017 series with the Ivy, Northeast, Patriot, and Pioneer would have looked like...
FCS PLAYOFFS: Central Connecticut State (1st Northeast), Lehigh (1st Patriot), San Diego (1st Pioneer)
IVY BOWL: Jacksonville (3rd Pioneer) @ Yale (1st Ivy)
NORTHEAST BOWL: Dartmouth (at-large) @ Bryant (2nd Northeast)
PATRIOT BOWL: Columbia (2nd Ivy) @ Colgate (2nd Patriot)
PIONEER BOWL: Duquesne (3rd Northeast) @ Drake (2nd Pioneer)
*Seeding was based on overall power rankings. The Patriot League did not have enough qualifying team, so at-large based on power rankings.

Good idea

In terms of the postseason, nothing like this is currently happening.

But could it? If our conference made an effort to work with other conferences that were one bid/no bid FCS playoff leagues.

Postseason would require a lot of legislation to pass.

Regular season? Sure, but why would anyone do that?  Ivy Leaguers haven't ever played D in football.  Hard to imagine the'll start now.
