Montana State received the No. 4 seed in the upcoming FCS playoffs, the selection committee announced Sunday.

The Bobcats (10-1) are behind top-seeded South Dakota State, No. 2 Sacramento State and No. 3 North Dakota State. MSU was seeded fourth despite being ranked third in both the Stats Perform and coaches polls going into Saturday’s Brawl of the Wild, which it won 55-21 over rival Montana. NDSU is No. 4 in both rankings.

“Happy with the season we’ve had, happy with being seeded and being seeded in the top four,” MSU head coach Brent Vigen said Sunday, adding, “You have to be continuing to improve, and I think we have the capability of doing that.”
