Playoff hopes still alive for UMD football entering regular season finale

On Saturday, October 12th, The University of Minnesota at Duluth football team will kick off their final game of the regular season.

The Bulldogs will trek to Northern State with a 7-3 record, still clinging onto a shot at a national tournament berth. They will be needing this road win to keep their playoff hopes alive.

“We have put ourselves in a position where we still have an opportunity to be in the national playoffs with a win. Probably not the ideal position we want to be in heading into the last week, but we still do have an opportunity. Our guys understand this is a big game for us,” said Head Coach Curt Wiese.

Graduate Tight End Zach Ojile shared, “I’ve been really blessed to spend my time here and have a successful career, and it’s just been a blast. I am looking forward to Saturday and seeing what could happen.”

A Bemidji State loss to The University of Mary would also help the Bulldogs with a shot at the national tournament berth. UMD kicks off at Northern State (6-4) on Saturday at 1 pm.
