FCS playoff bracket 2012: Sam Houston State draws Cal Poly for first game

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE

The Bearkats are in the FCS playoffs for another year but have a harder road to the title game this time around.

The Sam Houston State Bearkats will get another run at the FCS title starting against Cal Poly, the bracket revealed on Sunday morning.

The Bearkats (8-3) will take on the high octane offense of the 9-2 Mustangs from the Big Sky Conference. The Mustangs averaged 38.5 points a game as they finished in a three way tie for the Big Sky title with Eastern Washington and Montana State.

A win will set up a possible game against the third-seeded Montana State, assuming Montana State is able to get past their first game between the winner of Stony Brook and Villanova.

Sam Houston State has already clinched a share of the Southland Conference title with Central Arkansas University and just saw their seven game win streak snapped on Saturday with a 47-28 loss to No. 8 Texas A&M.

The Bearkats made it to the FCS championship game as a number one seed last year only to watch their offense sputter and lose 17-6 to North Dakota State.
