Men's DII Semifinal: Furman v Minnesota-Duluth
This is the final Men's DII rankings for the 2016-17 season.
The time finally came, and in fact the time came with just a few minutes left in the first half.
This was the Men’s DII College final, and leading into halftime Wisconsin-Whitewater was leading 7-3. Only 7-3.
Furman University pulled off quite the upset Saturday, winning their Men’s National DII semifinal over three-time defending champs Minnesota-Duluth 32-29.
Bolstered by a vocal home crowd - the semis were held at Furman - the Paladins played some sterling defense and torched the Fighting Penguins for three key first-half tries that proved the difference.
