UMaine Football #5 Seed, First-Round Bye 

The UMaine Football team a little down in the dumps after Saturday’s loss against New Hampshire.

But no worries, their spirits were back on top Sunday morning.

The Black Bears earned the number 5 seed for the 2013 NCAA FCS tournament.

They received a first round bye and will host the winner from the New Hampshire/Lafayette game.

Fans and players attended a viewing party for the selection show Sunday morning.

This will be the first time Maine football has hosted a home playoff game in its 121 year history.

Tickets for that December 7th game in Orono will be available at the black bear ticket office starting Monday morning.
