Big dub for EWU as they get a 32-22 win at Davis in effectively a loser-out game. A win over Idaho and they're all but into the playoffs (which they haven't missed in consecutive years since Paul Wulff in 2002-03)

And Davidson ends San Diego's 40-game conference winning streak, meaning USD could be out of the playoffs for the first time since 2015--their last PFL loss

The Eagles are most likely back in the playoffs but a win against Idaho, who lost to Idaho St yesterday, should clinch it. Go Eags!

Semifinals on ESPN and ESPN2.

The more I think about it, the more I like an XFL season that starts after March Madness. Maybe even wait past this weekend to let the Masters pass and the novelty of baseball to wear off.

Couldn't agree more Tank! I've given up on MLB anyway and only attend our local MiLB games.

That totally looks like they've already unofficially announced half of the field, of course there will be a few teams that clinch auto bids this weekend--Weber, in their regular season finale against Idaho State (won the first matchup easily in Pocatello), being one.

TSL starts four weeks from today, let's see what that looks like. Matter of fact, seeing as (aside from the schedule release assuming it becomes a May thing from here on out) there's nothing going on even off-season wise in the NFL until camps open up this might be in fact the undiscovered country alt leagues should be looking at.

Stunner. Davidson, a week after going on the road and ending San Diego's 40-game conference win streak, takes a 29-24 L at Presbyterian. Meaning that USD might not necessarily be out of the playoffs after all depending on at-large spots. Still have to win their final two.

Monmouth is also destroying Kennesaw in the de facto Big South championship. I figure Kennesaw will still make the playoffs as an at large.

Weber clinches the Big Sky auto bid with another close win over Idaho State. They won their first game (over ISU) going away by 28, they win the other four by 18 having trailed in the second half in each. Win's a win, but Weber State's going to be playing a lot tougher teams in the playoffs than Idaho State, Southern Utah, or Northern Arizona. They could end up playing Eastern, wouldn't be the first time Eags have played Big Sky rivals in the playoffs (Montana 2014, UC Davis 2018) but both of those were rematches

Eastern should be about 6-7 by the time the field is announced next week, so they're secure
