Projection: need to automatically qualify

Given the overall performance and the tough outings against higher-caliber opponents, early season losses to TCU and North Texas showed struggles against stiffer competition which has shadowed the team throughout the season. The setback against Lindenwood, a lowly regarded opponent, speaks volumes about consistency issues too. Despite some redeeming wins, like edging past Oral Roberts and tight games against South Dakota State, the overall resume lacks statement victories that could impress the selection committee. Close losses to teams like North Dakota State and falling to Denver in the conference play further underline the inconsistency that plagues this team. To make some noise, they must rally and secure the conference championship, proving they can rise to the occasion when the pressure is at its peak.
