Sam Houston State Bearkats (7-5)


Four FCS playoff staples seek a return in 2020

(Stats Perform) - The past decade was so good for Sam Houston State that it's been unusual for the Bearkats to fall short of making the FCS playoffs the last two seasons.

Maybe the new decade will begin in the way it looked for much of the 2010s, when Sam Houston collected seven straight appearances in the 2011-17 playoffs, reaching the national title game twice and at least the quarterfinals four other times.

It's easy to get that impression when listening to how seventh-year coach K.C. Keeler felt about last year's 7-5 squad, which tied for third place in the Southland Conference.
