The #1 seed South Dakota State (7-1) champions of Missouri Valley Football Conference (MVFC) takes on Delaware (7-0), the champions of the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA)! The Game is @ home game for South Dakota State played @ Coughlin Alumni Stadium in Brookings, SD.
The #2 seed, Sam Houston State (8-0), champions of Southland Conference (SLC) takes on the #3 seed, a 7-0 James Madison, from the CAA! The higher seed is awarded home field advantage, as a result, this game will be played in Huntsville, TX, @ Bowers Stadium!
Both Delaware & James Madison were/are undefeated thus far in the 2020 season (played in 2021), yet Delaware was declared the champion of the Colonial, based on the strength of having played one more conference game! The fighting Hens finished the regular season @ 4-0, while the Dukes ended their Colonial schedule @ 3-0! This in-balance was do to Covid 19 interruptions.
That said, the FCS selection committee thought that JM was the better team and seeded them 3rd of the 4 teams that they ranked. An unseeded Delaware, defeated the team that was rated 4th b the committee, Jacksonville State, this passed Sunday (5/2/21) 20-14!
