    That is impossible, if NAU beats Cal Poly the Big Sky Auntomatic Bid goes to Montana State. Eastern only gets if either Cal Poly beats NAU or Montana State loses.

    Stony Brook is not getting the Automatic Big South Bid!! There is a 3 way tie in the big south that is decided on road wins despite Stony Brook leading the conference in every other staistical category they will not get the bid.
