Welcome to another wonderful Saturday of postseason college football! The NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) playoffs are down to their semi-finals today. The defending champions, the CC Fighting Saints, welcome fellow traditional football power the Georgetown (KY) Tigers while the other semi-final matchup brings us a rematch. Just a few weeks ago the St Xavier University Cougars and the Marian University Knights were ranked one and two in the nation, respectively, when the Knights brought down Mike Feminis’ Cougars. Now the two teams play again in Marian’s house for the right to advance to the NAIA Championship Game in Rome, GA.
The NJCAA Championship Game will be played today in the El Toro Bowl and will pit the Arizona Western College Matadors against the East Mississippi Lions. Kickoff is at 2:30pm PT.
Quarter-final games will be played in NCAA Division 2 and in Division 3 where there is still a chance for a seventh consecutive title game between the Whitewater Warhawks, the reigning champs, and the other dominant D3 football dynasty, the Mt Union Purple Raiders. In addition there will be Bowl games in the NJCAA and D2. And now links to updating scoreboards in the divisions of college football covered by Balladeer’s Blog:
