#NECFB Game of the Week on ESPN3 Carries Serious Title Implications


Two weeks to go. Three teams are alive.

Such is the race for the NEC’s automatic bid to the Division I FCS playoffs summed up in eight words.

Sacred Heart (8-2, 4-1), Bryant (8-1, 4-0) and Wagner (5-4, 3-1) are the three lucky ones left standing and here’s how each of them can acquire a bid to the Dance…

Sacred Heart – The Pioneers need a win over Bryant in Week 12 and they’ll be dancing for the second year in a row.

Bryant – The Bulldogs needs wins in their final two games – Week 12 at Sacred Heart; Week 13 vs. Wagner. Bryant could secure the playoff bid in Week 12 by defeating Sacred Heart coupled with a Wagner loss to Duquesne.

Wagner – The Seahawks need two more wins and a little help to secure their second NCAA FCS playoff bid in three years. Wagner needs to defeat Duquesne in Week 12 coupled with a Bryant victory over Sacred Heart. Those results would set the table for a head-to-head winner-take-all matchup between Wagner and Bryant in Week 13.
