Fisher Earns At-Large Bid to NCAA Championship

11/20/2013


The season will continue for the St. John Fisher College football team, as the nationally ranked Cardinals were one of five teams to receive an at-large bid into the 2013 NCAA Division III Football Championship.

The No. 25 Cardinals (8-2) will take on No. 9 John Carroll University (9-1) at 12 p.m. on Saturday, November 23, at JCU's Don Shula Stadium.  Fans can listen live on SportsRadio950-ESPN with the Northwestern Mutual Pre-Game Show starting at 11:30 a.m.

Sunday's selection marks the fifth time the Cardinals will appear in the NCAA Championship and first time since the 2011 season.  That year, Fisher earned an at-large bid as well and knocked off previously-undefeated Johns Hopkins University and Delaware Valley College, before bowing out in the national quarterfinals to St. Thomas.

John Carroll, who was 9-0 with just 33 points allowed on the year before losing to Mount Union 42-34 last Saturday, has one common opponent with Fisher.  Both the Cardinals and the Blue Streaks blanked Otterbein 28-0 in week one and week three, respectively.

The winner will advance to the second round where it will face the winner of Hobart vs. Gallaudet.
