The UMaine Black Bears, ranked 20th in the sports network poll, have been selected to play in the FCS Playoffs. The chances were thought long at best, as a loss to UNH yesterday looked like it put the Bears out of the running, but apparently the selection committee was impressed with UMaine's schedule. Coach Jack Cosgrove was asked after the game Saturday if the officiating cost his team a playoff spot, and he said,"I believe these things balance out, it always does." Well, it balanced out today. UMaine will play 10-2 Northern Iowa on Saturday Novemeber 29th at 5:05 P.M.
