Noon - #2 North Alabama at #9 Valdosta State
Earned Access will likely rear its ugly head in the SE region. Valdosta let a win against Delta State slip away two weeks ago, while UNA beat them 28-17 last week.
1:00 - #21 Mesa State at #4 Chadron State
Undefeated teams face off in a game that will almost certainly decide the RMAC championship. Danny Woodhead is doubtful for the game. A one-loss Mesa State may fall out of playoff contention, while Chadron likely could weather a loss.
2:00 - #19 Abilene Christian at #10 Tarleton State
While this matchup lost a little luster with ACU's loss to WTAM last week, it certainly raised the stakes for the Wildcats. Simply put, they cannot afford another loss this season, and must close out the season against Midwestern State, which is in the same predicament. For Tarleton, the motivation is to stay unbeaten, improve its regional ranking and if they survive this week, square off against WTAM in the final week in a match of unbeatens.
Another game of interest, but not webcast is the Washburn at Northwest Missouri contest. A Washburn win would solidy their playoff chances and could drop NWMSU down several spots in the regional rankings. A win by NWMSU probably keeps them in the #2 spot (unless Mesa State wins, then they're #1), though they might get edged out if Chadron and WT/Tarleton winner is undefeated at season's end - also a NWMSU win almost certainly eliminates a 3 loss Ichabod squad. If you listen to this game, listen to the Washburn radio crew, they are good. Washburn Football Audio Link
