The UNH football received the news it was hoping for.

The Wildcats, who put themselves in position to qualify for the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs by tipping rival Maine 42-41 in overtime on Saturday, were rewarded one day later when selections for the 24-team field were announced. UNH, ranked 17th nationally, will host No. 21 Fordham in a first-round contest this coming Saturday at Wildcat Stadium. Kickoff is 2 p.m.
