Division II playoffs: CSU Pueblo beats Indianapolis, advances to quarterfinals

Ronald Martinez

CSU Pueblo will play upset-minded West Texas A&M in the quarterfinals.

The second round of the Division II college football tournament is all over and what transpired has made the next round a bit more intriguing than its previous counterparts.

First, all four of the No. 1 seeds advanced, including Colorado State-Pueblo, which defeated Indianapolis, 28-7, on Saturday. Winston-Salem cruised over Shippensburg, 37-14, Valdosta St. blew out West Alabama, 49-21, and Minn. St. Mankato sneaked by Northwest Missouri St., 38-35.

But elsewhere, upsets occurred.

West Texas A&M pulled off its second upset of the tournament, knocking off Ashland, 33-28. The sixth seed now moves on to play Colorado St.-Pueblo in the quarterfinals Dec. 1.

Other upsets were Missouri Western St. beating Henderson St. and Indiana (PA) beating New Haven.

The final eight are made up of all four No. 1 seeds, a No. 2, two No. 3s and a No. 6. The final four teams will play on Dec. 8 for the right to play in the national championship game.
