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

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

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE

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.
