FCS Playoffs 2011 Quarterfinals TV Schedule: UNI-Montana Opens Round

The 2011 FCS playoffs -- a college football postseason championship tournament, which features more than two teams -- continues Friday, entering the quarterfinals round.

The 2011 FCS Playoffs tournament, which began as a showcase for the mighty CAA, is turning into a showcase of teams from ... well, Canadian border states. The Montana Grizzlies and Montana St. Bobcats are an upset and a home stand away from a Big Sky rematch, the North Dakota St. Bison advanced to welcome the Lehigh Mountain Hawks, and the Maine Black Bears are the last CAA rep on the board.

The Northern Iowa Panthers are downright southern by comparison. We just talked about FCS geography. How was it?

Montana State, which squeaked past New Hampshire last week, has the toughest task: the Sam Houston St. Bearkats at Bowers Stadium. Though SHSU got a scare from Stony Brook last week, they're still the only unbeaten team left. The winner of that game will draw the winner of Montana-UNI, the Friday nighter.

The Georgia Southern Eagles welcome Maine after outgunning Old Dominion. Whoever emerges from Statesboro gets the Lehigh-NDSU victor in the semis.

Also, you'll have the Army-Navy Game at 2:30 p.m. ET on CBS and the SWAC championship between Alabama A&M and Grambling State on ESPNU at 1 p.m. ET.
