The Bears (7-5) will visit the Spiders (8-4) at 1 p.m. Saturday. The winner of that game will play at No. 7-seeded Coastal Carolina on Dec. 6.
Morgan State blew out Delaware State, 69-7, on Saturday to finish with a 6-2 record in the MEAC.
The Bears finished in a five-way tie for first place with Bethune-Cookman, North Carolina A&T State, North Carolina Central and South Carolina State, marking the first time in conference history that five teams earned a share of the title. The Bears earned the conference's lone playoff berth via tiebreaker.
"I'm very happy for our team and our community. It's been a long time since they had a MEAC championship and the first time ever going to the playoffs," first-year Morgan State coach Lee Hull said Saturday. "I'm ecstatic, and I'm happy for the whole program and the university."
The MEAC's representative in the FCS playoffs hasn't won a game in the tournament since 1999.
