CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- Late Sunday morning, the UTC Mocs learned they will face the Fordham University Rams this Saturday afternoon at Finley Stadium in the first round of the FCS playoffs.
Chattanooga was chosen as the 9th seed in the field of 24, one place shy of earning a bye week.
The team's reaction to the pairing was mixed, their disappointment obvious as they watched the selection show live in The University Center's auditorium.
Mocs Head Coach Russ Huesman said he agreed with the selection's committee's top eight seeds with the exception of Richmond, which garnered a 7th seed.
Huesman downplayed any disappointment amongst his team and said they look forward to hosting a first round playoff game.
Fordham's Rams (9-2) of the Patriot League, earned an at-large bid and will play UTC Saturday, November 28th at 1pm.
Ticket information on Saturday's game is expected to be released later Sunday.
