Concord Football Prepares for National Semifinal Matchup


Concord University continues their dream season this weekend with a Division 2 semifinal matchup.

The Mountain Lions will travel to Minnesota State-Mankato Saturday for a 3 o’clock kickoff. Concord stayed unbeaten with a 32-26 win over Bloomsburg last Saturday in Athens. 

The Mountain Lions were held to a season-low 306 yards against Bloomsburg in the Regional Final, but were still able to stay alive in the playoffs.

The game marks the first trip to the national D-2 semis for the Mountain Lions and continues the first undefeated season in school history. In the other semifinal matchup, Colorado State-Pueblo will host West Georgia. The national championship game will be held next week in Kansas City.
