East Tennessee State is going to the playoffs.

The Bucs were selected to the 24-team field of the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs on Sunday and will play at Jacksonville State on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

Both teams are 8-3. ETSU won a share of the Southern Conference, while Jacksonville State, located in Jacksonville, Alabama, won the Ohio Valley Conference.

The winner plays at Maine on Dec. 1. Seventh-seeded Maine earned one of the top eight spots in the national field and a first-round bye.

Wofford, which earned the SoCon’s automatic bid, will play host to Elon in the first round.
