Scott Cunningham

The Eagles face the Monarchs in the quarterfinals of the FCS playoffs.

The FCS playoffs resume on Friday, but the Georgia Southern Eagles will wait until Saturday to face the Old Dominion Monarchs in the quarterfinals.

The Eagles finished the season 9-3. and 6-2 in the Southern Conference with losses to the Citadel and Appalachian State. They'll face a very tough test when they face off against Old Dominion. The Monarchs won a strong Colonial Athletic Association conference and finished 11-1 on the year, dropping just one conference game to the Villanova Wildcats.

Both teams have already played once in the FCS playoffs. Georgia Southern snuck past Central Arkansas, 24-16, while Old Dominion throttled Coastal Carolina, 63-35.

The winner of this game will advance to the semifinals, where a likely date with the No. 1 overall seed, the North Dakota State Bison awaits. They play the Wofford Terriers at 3:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, a game you can catch on WatchESPN.
