HOW SEEDS ARE DETERMINED

Here’s the point system that determines the tournament seedings:

Six points for a win over a Division 1 team,

Four points for a win over a Division 2 team,

Three points for a tie against a Division 1 team,

Two points for a tie against a Division 2 team,

One point for a loss to a Division 1 team,

One bonus point for each opponent that wins seven or eight games during the regular season,

One bonus point for each opponent that wins nine or 10 games during the regular season.

In case of a tie in the points standings, the first tie breaker is the team that won in head-to-head competition during the regular season if the tied teams played each other.

The next tie breaker is the number of victories by a team’s opponents in the regular season.

The third tie breaker goes to the team whose opponents had the fewest losses.

If the teams are still tied, then the football tournament selection committee votes which team will play in the tournament.
