DAVIDSON, N.C. – For the third consecutive season, Davidson will represent the Pioneer Football League in the FCS Playoffs, as the Wildcats will travel to Richmond for a 2 p.m. kickoff Nov. 26.

The ‘Cats, now 8-3 overall, punched their ticket with a dramatic victory in the regular season finale over Dayton and wrapped up conference play 6-2, securing the league’s automatic postseason bid. League champion St. Thomas is ineligible for postseason play.

Davidson, which made appearances each of the previous two seasons by virtue of back-to-back PFL titles, enters as the nation’s top rushing team, averaging 350.5 yards per game.

The Spiders, who are out of the Colonial Athletic Association, enter 8-3 overall, highlighted by three wins over Top-25 foes. Richmond entered the final week of the regular season No. 11 in the national rankings.

General public tickets will go on sale Wednesday and are being handled by the Richmond ticket office here.

The Davidson-Richmond winner will advance to take on No. 2 seed Sacramento State.
