Can Bucknell and Lehigh Get NCAA Bids?

Is this the year that the Patriot League gets 2 bids? Both Lehigh and Bucknell are looking good.

Re: Can Bucknell and Lehigh Get NCAA Bids?

Lehigh's chances of an at-large are close to nil. They have a relatively weak OOC schedule and have no more chances to get a "signature" win. Bucknell has a chance, but I think would have to go 14-2 (a win @ Missouri might even be necessary) and then come close to running the table in conference. If they ended up 26-4 in the regular season, losing to Lehigh in the championship game, then there is a chance the PL could get two. But that's a tough row to hoe for the Bison.

Unlikely. LU only gets in via auto. BU a slight chance as at large. Small small window.
If LU beats VCU and N.Texas, they could squeeze in if they run the table but lose final Champ. Game to BU.

Lehigh found out how difficult it is to schedule non conference teams right after a big season. An NCAA win can screw a mid-major team in the years that follow.
