#14 in new STATS ranking

Sanity has returned!! We're right back where we should be.

I think our highest ever ranking was #6 heading into the final weekend of the regular season in 2012. I can't see us getting that high, but top 10 isn't out of the question if we win out.

If we win rest, think we will host the first round? That would be immense.

We'd definitely host it, but I'm thinking bigger. If we win out, we're 9-2 in the CAA with at least a tie for 2nd place. Assuming an Elon loss to JMU and what happens elsewhere, we could wind up in the playoff committee's top 8, get a bye, and then host a second round game at Lavalle first weekend of December. We'd need quite a bit to happen in order to get that though. Namely teams ahead of us like Wofford, UCA, Elon, Eastern Washington, South Dakota St. Illinois St. etc. to lose games so we can get high enough in the committee's mind to be worthy of a seed. There's a chance though. Alot of those MVFC teams still have games against each other plus NDSU.

More likely if we win out (or even lose one, doesn't really change much) we'd host a playoff game. Given how the seeds have a geographic component to it, we'd likely play one of the Auto-bids from the NEC(Duquesne), Patriot(Colgate), or Big South(Kennesaw St./Monmouth). We could also potentially get another CAA team or an MVFC team depending on how many get in which is yet to be seen. We could be looking at a Northern Iowa, Villanova or maybe even a Richmond rematch here at Lavalle.
