UNI will host Monmouth to open FCS playoffs

Posted: Updated:

CEDAR FALLS, Ia. —After missing the FCS playoffs last season for the first time since 2013, Northern Iowa has returned to the tournament following a strong final six weeks. The Panthers (7-4) received an at-large bid Sunday and will host Monmouth (9-2) next Saturday at 4 p.m. in the opening round.

A win will send UNI to South Dakota State, which received the No. 5 overall seed. 

UNI Football tweeted a video of the team's reaction saying, "That feeling when you're staying at the DOME for the first round of the #FCSPlayoffs".
