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

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.
