2019 FCS Playoff Bracket

Post by J.J. »

Selection show on ESPNU at 12:30

Central Connecticut moved up 1 spot in the FCS STATS Poll to #17.

Other regional teams in poll: James Madison (#2), Villanova (#8), Monmouth (#14), Dartmouth (#21), Yale (#22), Albany (#25)

Holy Cross is the Patriot League Champion and auto qualifier, and of course the Ivy League doesn't participant in the playoffs

Any predictions on matchups?

Note, that Monmouth beat Albany in the regular season, so they won't be paired against each other in the First Round.

Probably. But going to Albany or Monmouth isn't awful.

I'm much more interested to see who we might face in the Second Round. It would be great if we were fed into Seeds 5-8.

Don't want to go to JMU in Second Round.

As expected, CCSU heads to Albany. Winner to play at #5 Montana State.

I like the matchup, but again absolutely no respect for the NEC.

We were 11-1, nearly beat a FBS team and we still have to go on the road to a CAA team.

Nova plays at SE Louisiana?

Looks like Monmouth gets the respect and gets to host Holy Cross. They do get fed to #2 JMU.

Other than not getting a home game (which I knew was a long shot), we've got a nice bracket.

First Round:
at Albany
We matchup well vs. the Danes. UA has some good wins, but is also very beatable. They lost to Monmouth, Richmond, and Maine, but finished strong winning their last 3 (Delaware, New Hampshire, and Stony Brook) to play their way into the playoffs.

Second Round:
at #5 Montana State
Closed the season with a nice win vs. arch-rival Montana, but this team is a step below NDSU/JMU. If we can make the trip out there, it will be huge for the program. Nothing to lose and everything to win.

I better see a lot of blue at Ford Field! It’s a very doable drive from New Britain.
