In this last projection, I will go through what I think the committee will do. I see the last spot the one up for the most debate and we will see several 8 win teams not get in the field this year.
The following are the automatic bids in alphabetical order:
Coastal Carolina--Big South
Eastern Illinois--IOhio Valley
Eastern Washington--Big Sky
We are down to the last week of games and still we have a number of possibilities for several autobids and a number of at-large spots. Based on the GPI right now, this is what the playoff field will be.
After the games this Saturday, I will place my final projections before the playoff field for this year is announced on Sunday afternoon.
This week's projections are in bold.
1. N Dakota St (9) (1.00) MVFC #1
2. Montana St (2.29) Big Sky #2
With two weeks left, we are really starting to see what teams we will be watching in postseason play. In fact, Central Arkansas clinched the Southland autobid this past week so we have one team for sure in the playoffs. After this weekend, it will be even more clear but we still have a lot of teams on the fringe so wins are needed.
Here is this week's projections based on the Gridiron Power Index (GPI). Teams in the playoff field by this week's projections are in bold.
