Well we saw the NCR D1AA quarterfinals produce a few nailbiters, and it's likely we'll see more with the semifinals.
Your NCR D1AA last four are Louisville, Boston College, Kentucky, and two-time defending champions Virginia Tech.
The GRR DIAA rankings, which include teams not in NCR, list Kentucky at #1, VT at #2, and Louisville #4 after they erased losses to Bowling Green and Western Michigan by beating both in their conference playoffs. And BC are ranked #12.
In a meeting of unbeaten teams in the Liberty DIAA Conference, UMass beat Boston College 20-13 to improve to 6-0 and drop BC to 5-1.
With the victory the Minutemen should be tops in the Liberty East which should set them up for a semifinal against Columbia, while BC will face off with Binghamton.
It's already time to think about the playoff scenarios in some conferences, and since the Liberty has multiple levels, let's look at them.
