If thrilling football is your thing, the DII football championship semifinals certainly delivered. Notre Dame (OH) nearly tamed the beast that is the Valdosta State offense, but the Blazers held on for the 30-24 victory. Ferris State and Minnesota State headed into the half in a tight 21-19 game in the nightcap, before the Bulldogs ran away with the 42-25 victory.

The stage is set. Valdosta State, a three-time national champion, will face off against Ferris State, a team heading to the finals for the first time in program history. Let’s take a quick look at what we learned in the DII semifinals.

A perfect 2018 DII football season is on the line

Four teams entered Saturday’s semifinals with a perfect record, marking the first time in DII football history four undefeated teams remained in the hunt this late into the season. Valdosta State ended Notre Dame (OH)’s perfect run 30-21 while Ferris State ended the undefeated season of Minnesota State, 42-25.

Now, Valdosta State and Ferris State face off in the first national championship game featuring undefeated squads since 2015. That time Northwest Missouri State defeated Shepherd 34-7.
