Postseason door open for UMD football – Duluth News Tribune

DULUTH – The penultimate Super Region 4 ranking for NCAA Division II football was released on Monday and with it an open door for a three-loser Minnesota Duluth team to enter.

The Bulldogs (7-3) entered this week’s rankings in 9th place, with the top seven receiving entry into the NCAA playoffs.

Angelo State is the only team in the region with fewer than two losses in the final week of the regular season, and the three teams that have won the Bulldogs so far this year are all ranked above them this week: Minnesota State Mankato (3), State of Bemidji (4) and Sioux Falls (7).

A season-ending win for Minnesota Duluth on Saturday at Northern State is required, but games to watch elsewhere include No. 5 Winona State at No. 3 Minnesota State Mankato, No. 6 Wayne State vs Minnesota State Moorhead and No. 7 Sioux Falls in Upper Iowa. A victory for the Mavericks or defeat for the Dragons or Peacocks could help UMD enter the top seven.

The NCAA tournament field will be announced Sunday afternoon.
