NJCAA FOOTBALL’S 2011 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME SET: MATADORS VS LIONS – PLUS THE OTHER NJCAA BOWL MATCHUPS

 Three dreams came true for the Arizona Western College Matadors this year: an 11-0 season, the return of the El Toro Bowl AND they will be hosting that game, which, by the way, will be for the NJCAA  National Championship. The number 1 Matadors will face the 2nd ranked East Mississippi Lions on December 3rd in Yuma. Game time is scheduled for 2:30 pm Pacific Time.

The two teams last faced each other in post- season play just two years ago. The Lions defeated the Matadors in the 2009  Mississippi Bowl 27-24.

GRAPHIC EDGE BOWL – This Sunday, November 20th, the first NJCAA Bowl Game of the post- season will feature the Iowa Western Reivers and the Rochester (MN) Tech Yellowjackets. Kickoff is scheduled for 3pm MT. The Reivers come into the game at 8-2, the Yellowjackets a perfect 10-0.

OTHER NJCAA BOWL MATCHUPS

SALT CITY BOWL – Dec 3rd 1PM CT – The Hutchinson Blue Dragons will be taking on the Lackawanna Falcons in Hutch’s 3rd straight bowl appearance and 16th overall. The Blue Dragons are also looking for their 3rd straight Salt City Bowl victory. 

TOP OF THE MOUNTAINS BOWL – Dec 3rd TBD  –  The Eastern Arizona College Gila Monsters are making their 3rd ever Bowl appearance in this game. Their opponents will be the defending Top of the Mountains Bowl champions, the Snow College Badgers. The Badgers are playing in their 8th straight Bowl.

VALLEY OF THE SUN BOWL – Dec 3rd 1pm PT  – The NJCAA’s “Grand Daddy of Them All”, the oldest continuous Bowl in the Association’s storied history, once again features the Glendale (AZ) Gauchos. This time around the Gauchos will be playing the Dean College Bulldogs in a rematch of the 2009 Valley of the Sun Bowl. That game went to the Gauchos in a 10-9 defensive epic.         

HEART OF TEXAS BOWL – Dec 3rd 2PM CT – The New Mexico Military Institute Broncos went from being unranked in the preaseason to number 12 in the final poll. They will take on the Navarro College Bulldogs in this collision at Bulldawg (sic) Stadium.  

MISSISSIPPI BOWL – Dec 4th 2PM CT – The Blinn Buccaneers, the team for whom Cam Newton played his college ball before transferring to Auburn, will take on the Mississippi Gulf Coast Bulldogs in one of the most anticipated matchups of Bowl Season. For the first time the Mississippi Athletic Conference champion is not playing in this bowl game. The Bulldogs were runners up to East Mississippi, who will be playing in the national championship game instead.

CITIZEN’S BANK BOWL – Dec 4th 1PM CT – The Butler (KS) Grizzlies, the champions of the Jayhawk Conference and of the Region VI playoffs, will square off against the Trinity Valley Cardinals in this game. Last year the Grizzlies played in this same bowl, but for the National Championship, and wound up losing to Navarro College in a nailbiting 13-12 affair.
