Stony Brook, N.Y. – The Stony Brook football team will host Villanova on November 24 in a first-round game at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium, the Division I Football Championship committee announced on Sunday. The Seawolves (9-2, 5-1 Big South) received one of 10 at-large berths to the 20-team playoff and their first-ever Division I at-large bid in any sport.

Saturday’s game is scheduled for 3 p.m. and will be televised live on ESPN3 and the WatchESPN app.

Stony Brook tied for the Big South title, its fourth consecutive conference championship, but based on conference road wins, Coastal Carolina received the conference’s automatic bid.

The Seawolves have wins over Army and fellow playoff teams Colgate and Coastal Carolina.

Villanova (8-3, 6-2 CAA) shared the conference title with New Hampshire, Richmond and Towson, but received the automatic bid based on a tiebreaker. Saturday’s match-up will be the first meeting between the two schools, but not the last. Stony Brook will move to the CAA after this season is complete. The Wildcats won the national championship in 2009.

The winner will travel to face No. 3 seed Montana State on December 1.
