Michigan Tech gets spot in NCAA Playoffs
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — For the second time in school history, the Michigan Tech football team is headed to the NCAA Playoffs. The Huskies earned the No. 3 seed in Super Region 4 and will host Angelo State from San Angelo, Texas, this Saturday (Nov. 22) at noon.
“It’s a huge accomplishment for the university and our program,” said Tech coach Tom Kearly. “This team has worked very hard and is very deserving of it.”
Tech finished its regular season at 9-1, compiling nine wins for just the fourth time in the 92-year history of the program.
The Huskies are one of three teams from the GLIAC to earn a playoff berth. Ferris State (11-0) earned the region’s top seed. It will play the winner of No. 4 seed Colorado Mines (Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) and No. 5 Ohio Dominican (GLIAC). The Tech-Angelo State winner will take on No. 2-seeded Colorado Pueblo (RMAC). The higher seed will be the host site for all games.
Angelo State (8-2) is a member of the Lone Star Conference and won two LSC playoff games to play their way into the NCAA Playoffs.
Michigan Tech’s last playoff appearance came in 2004, when the Huskies earned the No. 1 seed and a first-round bye. Tech lost to North Dakota in the second round at Sherman Field.
