Any Selection Sunday seeding questions for the Bison were answered on Saturday with their convincing 42-0 win over South Dakota. The shutout propelled them to 11-0 and locked up the number one overall postseason seed, ensuring home field advantage throughout the FCS playoffs.
The FCS Selection Committee picked 24 schools Sunday to fill out the playoff bracket and, with the bye, the Bison don't play until Saturday December 7th--against the winner of Saturday November 30th's South Carolina State vs. Furman match up. Also in NDSU's bracket, the 8th seeded Montana Grizzlies. The top 8 teams get a bye so Montana will await the winner of Bethune Cookman vs. Coastal Carolina.
