2012 FCS playoff bracket: Final 16 set as Eastern Washington readies for Wagner

William Mancebo

No. 2 Eastern Washington will take on Wagner in the Round of 16 after the Seahawks bested Colgate this weekend.

The 2012 FCS Tournament got underway with four play-in games on Saturday, whittling the field down its final 16 combatants, with the No. 2 Eastern Washington Eagles learning that the Wagner Seahawks would be their opponent in the second round of the tourney.

The Seahawks topped the Colgate Raiders on Saturday, 31-20, to move on to face the Eagles in the second round, which will take place on Dec. 1 from Roos Field in Cheney, Wash. The 2012 Big Sky champions will be tested against the 9-3 Seahawks, which topped the NEC standings in 2012.

In other action from around the FCS tournament, another slot in the final 16 was filled by South Dakota State with its dominating victory over Eastern Illinois. South Dakota State will now be faced with the tourney's overall No. 1 seed, the North Dakota State Bison.

Stony Brook bested Villanova, 20-10 to move on to face No. 3 Montana State and Bethune-Cookman beat Coastal Carolina, 24-14, to get to face off against No. 4 Old Dominion next weekend.
