KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The NCAA announced Wednesday that Saturday's Division II Football national quarterfinal matchup in Maryville between No. 3 seed Northwest Missouri and No. 4 seed Central Missouri will be produced and televised live by Metro Sports.
The game can be found on Time Warner Cable channels 30 and 1030 and on Comcast channel 258 in the Kansas City area. It can also be seen in Lawrence, Kan., on Sunflower Broadband channel 37. For those who do not have any of the above listed providers, the game will be streamed live on NCAA.com. Kevin Wike will handle the play-by-play, while Stan Weber will provide the color commentary.
In their regular season meeting on Nov. 6 in Warrensburg, Central Missouri and Northwest Missouri went toe-to-toe in a classic battle for the conference crown, and the game wasn't decided until the final whistle blew. Northwest Missouri kicker Todd Adolf hit a 45-yard field goal as time expired to give the Bearcats a 17-16 victory and the MIAA title.
En route to the Super Regional Four Championship Game, Central and Northwest both had to win twice, including road games against Lone Star Conference foes in the second round.
Central Missouri got off to quick starts in its two matchups and led from start to finish in both games. The Mules routed West Texas A&M in the first round in Warrensburg, 55-35, and then knocked off top-seeded Abilene Christian in the second round in Abilene, 55-41.
Northwest Missouri used two double-digit comebacks to advance. In the first round against Missouri Western in Maryville, the Bearcats erased a 17-0 halftime deficit to defeat the Griffons, 28-24, and then came back from 10 down to defeat Texas A&M-Kingsville in the second round in Kingsville, 35-31.
Saturday's game at Bearcat Stadium will kick off at 1 p.m., CT.
KMOS-TV (Missouri PBS), will pick up the feed for Saturday's playoff game as well, adding an additional 800,000 households throughout the state of Missouri, including the cities of Warrensburg, Sedalia, Jefferson City, and Columbia
