No NAIA football games today. Their championship game between the Sioux Falls Cougars and the CC Fighting Saints will be held next Saturday in good old Rome, GA of course.
NCAA DIVISION 3 SEMIFINALS
Whitewater Warhawks … Wesley Wolverines … Why, what wonders we will witness, won’t we? – Alliteration aside, the Wolverines try to do what no other D3 football team has been able to accomplish in the past 5 years – break the half-decade stranglehold that the Warhawks and the Purple Raiders have had on the title game. As a one seed Wesley has the home field advantage. Will they make the most of it?
The Bethel (MN) Royals have been the Road Warriors of this year’s playoffs, winning their games in all three previous rounds on the road. Today, however, they face the daunting task of beating the Mt Union Purple Raiders in their Alliance, OH home. The Purple Raiders and the Warhawks are fighting to make this the sixth straight year that they face each other in the D3 championship game.

NCAA DIVISION 2 SEMIFINALS
It’s a matchup of the 2009 and 2008 D2 champs as the Northwest Missouri Bearcats travel to take on the Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs. Mel Tjeerdsma’s Bearcats look for payback against the Bulldogs, who defeated them in the 2008 title game. NW Missouri is led by QB “Blademaster” Blake Bolles, who is still in the running for the Harlon Hill Trophy, D2’s equivalent of the Heisman which will no doubt get turned back in by or stripped away from Cam “The Scam” Newton in the next four or five years.
The Delta State Statesmen are out to win their first national championship since the year 2000. These boys from the Gulf South Conference, AKA The SEC Of D2, will be hosting the Shepherd Rams, fresh off their upset of the Mercyhurst Lakers last Saturday afternoon.
