#13 St. John's (10-1) dominated their first round NCAA Division III playoff game against St. Scholastica (10-1) 35-7 in Collegeville, securing a second round matchup next weekend in Iowa. The Minnesota Gophers (8-3, 5-2) upset #21 Nebraska (8-3, 4-3) 28-24 in Lincoln, with only Wisconsin standing in the way of a berth in the Big Ten Championship game.

A Gophers win next Saturday at Wisconsin would set Minnesota up for a rematch against Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship game December 6th in Indianapolis. Ohio State beat the Gophers 31-24 two weeks ago in Minneapolis.

With their win, St. John's became one of sixteen remaining teams in the NCAA Division III playoffs, setting up a second round game Saturday against Warburg College (11-0) in Waverly, Iowa.

Next Saturday:


  • Saint John's at Wartburg College (12:00 PM) in Waverly, IA (Radio: AM 660 WBHR)
  • Minnesota at Wisconsin (2:30 PM) in Madison, WI (TV: BTN, Radio: AM 1390 The Fan)

Go Johnnies! Go Gophers!
