After losing this weekend in the conference championship game 42-38, it was unclear whether or not they would be headed to the playoffs. During the announcement on Sunday, they made it as the 5 seed, and will be playing WInston Salem next week.
From the article "The Rock were the No. 5 seed in the six-team NCAA Division II Super Region 1 field announced Sunday afternoon by the NCAA office via a videoconference on www.ncaa.com.
As a result, the Green and White, who earned their first NCAA tournament berth since 1999, travel to fourth-seeded Winston-Salem State University for a first-round game Saturday."
Winston Salem was the runner up last year and has a 9-1 record this season.
For the season, Slippery Rock scored 500 points, and averaged 45.5/game. Senior QB Nigel Barksdale threw for over 4000 yards and had 36 TD's on the season.
An impressive season, and hopefully they can get the win on Saturday to advance.
