Youngstown State football team misses playoffs

The Youngstown State football team will not be in the playoffs.

The Penguins (7-4) were not among the 10 at-large teams selected on Sunday despite ending the year with a three-game win streak and opening the season with a win over Big East-member Pitt.

The Missouri Valley Football Conference had three teams advance: conference champion North Dakota State (the defending champions and No. 1 overall seed), South Dakota State and Illinois State. All three teams defeated the Penguins.
