2015 Final FCS Playoffs Projection

The field is pretty solid. North Dakota, Central Arkansas, Villanova, Western Illinois, and Towson are all bubble teams with a case. I considered only 2 real bubble spots available filled by Eastern Washington and New Hampshire. The first round match ups are based on who I believe DESERVES a home game; in reality the bidding process results in changes however I feel confident in the field.

2015 FCS Playoff Projections 11/15/15

FCS Championship

I have The Citadel, New Hampshire, and Eastern Illinois as the last three in with Eastern Washington, Central Arkansas, and Bethune Cookman as the first three out with Villanova and Towson still in play. I also have the top 4 seeds as below with Jacksonville St and McNeese St close to locks for the top 2 seeds therefore home games through the semifinals, but the rest of the bracket could shift dramatically based on the final weekend’s results.

Top Seeds

  1. Jacksonville St
  2. McNeese St
  3. William & Mary
  4. N Dakota St
