Josh D. Weiss-US PRESSWIRE

The FCS college football selection show will air on Sunday, and Illinois State and Eastern Illinois could make their way into the playoff bracket.

The FCS college football selection show will air on ESPNU at 1:30 p.m. ET Sunday, and two schools from the state of Illinois could make their way into the 20-team playoff bracket. The Illinois State Redbirds and Eastern Illinois Panthers are both hoping for bids.

Illinois State is ranked No. 16 after a 38-20 loss to second-ranked North Dakota State this weekend, according to The Sports Network. Meanwhile, Eastern Illinois is on the outside looking in and ranked No. 25 after falling to No. 8 overall Central Arkansas.

In Craig Haley's projections of last week, both teams snuck into the bracket. The Redbirds had a first-round bye and were set up to play Appalachian State in the second round. Haley projected that the Panthers would play now-No.15 Towson in the first round with the chance to play Eastern Washington in the second round.
