About the playoffs

Super Region One consists of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC), Mountain East Conference (MEC), Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) and Northeast-10 Conference (NE-10).

The top seven teams in the final regional rankings receive at-large bids to the NCAA Playoffs. As the top seed, Cal U received a bye into the second round.

In the other first-round Super Region One games, second-seeded LIU Post (Brookville, N.Y.) will face seventh-seeded Winston-Salem State (N.C.), and third-seeded Shepherd (W.Va.) hosts sixth-seeded Assumption (Mass.).

A victory on Nov. 26 would move the Vulcans into the regional championship game on Dec. 3.

Cal U is making its sixth NCAA Division II Football Playoff appearance. The Vulcans made five consecutive post-season trips to the playoffs from 2007-2011.
