Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

The second round of the Division II college football tournament begins on Saturday as the 16 remaining teams play for the right to move on to the quarterfinals which will be held on Dec. 1.

All four No. 1-seeds will be in action including the Colorado St.-Pueblo Thunderwolves. They are undefeated at 11-0 and face the No. 4-seed in their region, 10-2 Indianapolis.

The other three top seeds are Valdosta St., Winston-Salem and Northwest Missouri St. The only region not to have their top four seeds advance is the one with CSU-Pueblo as the top seed. West Texas A&M upset Chadron St., 38-30, in the first round to move on to play No. 2-seed Ashland.

The Thunderwolves average 38.6 points behind a balanced offense while only giving up 18.9 points per game. They've held seven of their last eight opponents to 21 points or less, including holding Western State to three points in their last game of the regular season.
