It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? We’ve been down for about a month now on our website, and we’re getting it back up and going. We’re so close to the playoffs. We can almost taste it and are so excited for it. But here, this week – rivalry week – we have so many good games to go over.

Think about this week. Morningside and Northwestern. Lindsey Wilson and Cumberlands. Concordia and Indiana Wesleyan. Baker and Evangel. This weekend has been circled on my calendar since early October. You know it has – we’ve talked about it every week on the show. And it’s arrived. The playoffs are just around the corner, and the brackets will either cement or get busted depending on what happens on Saturday.

Just a few notes – all times Eastern. Rankings are from the media poll and are not indicative of any team’s spot in the playoffs. Let’s get to the gettin’.
