Mercer has never made an appearance in the FCS Playoffs but a win in the finale could do quite a bit to push them even closer to this year’s field. The field, which is usually 24 teams, has been reduced to 16 this year due to COVID, or else Mercer would absolutely like their chances to get in. Regardless of the playoff picture, Mercer would love nothing more than to finish the season with a win and aim towards the future.
Mercer surprisingly still has their eyes set on a postseason appearance in the FCS Playoffs and there’s really no reason to think they can’t finish their schedule strong and potentially make it happen. Who will finish off the regular season slate with a win?
