Last year New Hampshire lost 4 the record was 7-4 why did they get a playoff spot?

I believe the issue with UNH was that nobody else in FCS had 8 Division I wins except ineligible teams and teams from the non-schollie conferences. We may see more 4 loss participants when the playoffs expand.

Umass should take Maine at home. It is the New Hampshire Game that will decide if we go to the "Big Dance".
