The Old Dominion football team will be the No. 4 seed in the FCS Tournament, the NCAA announced on Sunday.

Old Dominion finished the 2012 season with a 10-1 record. Their 7-1 record in the Colonial Athletic Association was the best mark in the conference.

New Hampshire, which finished the season with an 8-3 (6-2) record, is also in the FCS Tournament.

Old Dominion will play Saturday, Dec. 1, against an opponent to be determined. The Monarchs will play either Bethune-Cookman or Coastal Carolina. Those two teams will play each other Saturday, Nov. 24, at 2 p.m. to decide who will advance to play Old Dominion.

The Wildcats will also open play on Dec. 1. New Hampshire will be on the road to play Wofford in Spartansburg, S.C. Wofford also went 8-3 this year.

If New Hampshire wins, it will likely play No. 1 seed North Dakota State the following weekend. North Dakota State will play the winner of South Dakota State and Eastern Illinois on Dec. 1.

Old Dominion will play either No. 5 Georgia Southern or Central Arkansas on Dec. 7-8 weekend if the Monarchs come away with a win.
