We’re down to the round of eight in the NCAA Division II football championship and the winner of this Saturday’s SR1 final will advance to the national semi-finals, with an invitation to the national championship game on the line. Shepherd, the number 1 seed, will host the event after a bye in round one and a victory over two-time defending SR 1 Champ Winston-Salem State in round 2.

After a relatively disappointing first round of the championship tournament a week ago, Super Region 1 delivered a pair of very exciting, down-to-the-last seconds battles on Saturday.
