Written by Mike Kelly

The Mountaineers, the No.1 seed in the Football Championship Series Division I playoffs, begin their quest for a fourth national championship Saturday afternoon at Kidd Brewer Stadium.

The Mountaineers (9-2 overall) open post-season play with a second-round game against Western Illinois in the first meeting ever between the schools. Western Illinois (8-4), which only won one game last fall (1-10 last season) finished in second place with a 5-3 record in the Missouri Valley Conference. And quarterback Matt Barr of the Leathernecks, a Walter Payton Award candidate, was named the Missouri Valley Conference Offensive Player of the Year.
Barr, who scored the game-winning touchdown in last Saturday's wildcard game against Coastal Carolina, led the league in passing efficiency, total offense, passing yards, touchdown passes and touchdowns accounted for.
The Mountaineers are ranked third in this week's FCS Coaches Top 25 Poll. The Mountaineers did receive 12 first-place votes. The Leathernecks are ranked 24th. Eastern Washington is No.1 with 13 first-place votes, and Stephen F. Austin, a possible second-round opponent for ASU, is No.2 with one-first place vote. William & Mary  and Delaware round out the top five.
Wofford is sixth, Jacksonville State, which plays the Terriers at home on Saturday is ninth. The Gamecocks also received one first-place vote; Georgia Southern, which blew out South Carolina State on Saturday and plays at William & Mary in a second-round game on Saturday, is ranked 22nd.
The Mountaineers are 3-0 lifetime against the Missouri Valley Conference. Saturday's second-round game with WIU begins are 12 noon. Our coverage begins at 10 am on AM 1450, WATA.
The Sports Network did not release a new poll this week. ASU was ranked second in last week's poll and received 39 first-place votes; Eastern Washington was No.1 and received 64 first-place votes.
