2007 FCS Playoff Bracket

As everyone already knows, the Montana Grizzlies play the Wofford Terriers in the first round of the FCS playoffs. The Griz got the 3 seed, meaning they're not guaranteed home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. If the Griz make it to the third round, they could potentially play McNeese State in Lake Charles, LA. However, McNeese has a rough road to that game, the offensively potent EWU in the first round then one of the two teams who have won the last three National Championships: James Madison or Appalachian State.

Below is the 2007 FCS (I-AA) Playoff Bracket. This bracket comes from The Sports Network.

Griz still sit at 2nd in TSN Poll

The Griz sit in their usual spot while Montana State moved from 20th to 18th. Eastern Washington debuts in the poll at #25 and Portland State is working on climbing its way back in.

We're talking about playoffs -- Griz get #2 seed in I-AA bracket.

As long as the Griz keep winning, they will be at home all the way until they travel to Chattanooga for the I-AA National Championship.

The Griz earned the #2 seed and will face McNeese State University, who earned the automatic bid from the from the Southland Conference.

Next Saturday's Griz/Cowboys game won't be the only one played in Montana. The Bobcats will be playing host to the Furman Paladins. That is one of the weirdest sports names I've ever heard. After doing a Google image search I think a Paladin is a World of Warcraft character. Nice.

The #1 seed is first-ranked and defending champion Appalachian State.
