“This initial step along with future implementation strategies will increase the likelihood of SWAC football teams qualifying for the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) playoffs via an at-large selection if they don’t qualify to participate in the Celebration Bowl.”

Is the SWAC going to move up their championship game to before the FCS playoffs start as part of the implementation strategies?  If not then how much of a chance does the third best team in the conference have at getting an at-large bid for the playoffs?

I think that's the perfect match as said for maximizing profit for the conf. and giving schools the freedom  for OOC scheduling.

Probably slightly even more than they had a few years ago. When Prairie View just miss an at-large-bid
