FCS playoff bracket 2012: Bethune-Cookman falls to Coastal Carolina

Robert Mayer-US PRESSWIRE

The first round of the FCS playoffs took place on Saturday, with four teams moving into the next round to take on the top four seeds.

The Bethune-Cookman Wildcats' season ended on Saturday at the hands of the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, who walked out of Municipal Stadium in Daytona Beach, Fla., with a 24-14 victory.

The Wildcats fell behind, 24-0, after Johnnie Houston's 68-yard interception return at the 10:26 mark in the fourth quarter. Bethune-Cookman finally got on the board a few minutes later when quarterback Quentin Williams hooked up with receiver David Blackwell for a 74-yard touchdown strike. Isidore Jackson's 10-yard TD run with 1:22 remaining made it a 10-point game, but the Wildcats failed to get the two-point conversion, leaving themselves with an insurmountable two-score deficit.

Coastal Carolina moves on to face fourth-seeded Old Dominion in the next round.

Elsewhere, South Dakota State easily defeated Eastern Illinois, 58-10. Their reward is a meeting with top-seeded North Dakota State next week. Stony Brook and Wagner also advanced with victories on Saturday. Stony Brook has No. 3 seed Montana awaiting in the next round, while Wagner will take on second-seeded Eastern Washington.
