WAYNE CAVADI | NCAA.COM | NOVEMBER 16, 2019
Here are the remaining undefeated DII football teams in 2019

DII FOOTBALL PLAYS OF THE WEEK
SHARE


Valdosta State was one of nine undefeated teams in the 2018 DII football championship tournament and the only one to run the table, finish 14-0 and win the title. With one day remaining until the 2019 selection show, there are nine undefeated teams looking to hear their name called for the bracket on Sunday, Nov. 17, with an unblemished record.

Let's take a look at those teams. Note, this is through Week 11, which saw Slippery Rock knock off undefeated Kutztown in the PSAC championship game. Check back for the updated list each week of the NCAA DII football championship tournament.

DII FOOTBALL RANKINGS: The top 25 heading into Selection Sunday | Final regional rankings

No. 1 Valdosta State (10-0)
Big wins: Sept. 21 vs. West Alabama, 44-27; Nov. 9 vs. West Florida, 26-21; Nov. 16 vs. West Georgia, 42-14
Toughest teams left: Nov. 16 West Georgia

The Blazers have won 24 in a row, though their Week 8 win was as close as it gets. Rogan Wells broke a 40-yard touchdown on 4th and 2 with 49 seconds left to secure the 20-15 win over North Greenville. Valdosta State is looking to match Northwest Missouri State's run in 2015 and 2016 of back-to-back undefeated national championship campaigns.


ROGAN WELLS SAVES VALDOSTA STATE'S PERFECT SEASON, RUMBLES 40 YARDS FOR GAME-WINNING SCORE
No. 2 Ferris State (10-0)
Big wins: Sept. 5 vs. Findlay, 24-23; Sept. 21 vs. Ashland, 28-13; Oct. 26 vs. Saginaw Valley State, 34-10; Nov. 9 Grand Valley State, 21-16

The Bulldogs were three points shy of becoming the first 16-0 team in DII football history last season. Jayru Campbell has had an injury-riddled 2019 but Travis Russell has played well in his stead. The Bulldogs took down Grand Valley State 21-16 in The Anchor-Bone Classic on Nov. 9 to win another GLIAC title.

No. 3 Tarleton State (11-0)
Big wins: Sept. 21 vs. West Texas A&M, 58-28; Oct. 5 vs. Angelo State, 30-13; Texas A&M-Commerce, 35-21

The Texans are rolling the competition whether it be at the FCS level or nationally-ranked opponents. Earlier this season, Tarleton State downed its second top-25 opponent of the year, both of which have come in double-digit wins.

No. 4 Minnesota State (11-0)

Big wins: Oct. 5 vs. Minnesota Duluth, 52-7; Nov. 9 Sioux Falls, 42-39

The Mavericks have owned the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference with 34-straight conference victories dating back to October of 2016. They picked up a big win in Super Region Four against Sioux Falls on Nov. 9.

No. 5 Ouachita Baptist (11-0)
Big wins: Sept. 5 vs. Harding, 16-14; Nov. 2 vs. Southern Arkansas, 38-21; Henderson State, 24-21

Once again the Tigers, are running through the Great American Conference. The Battle of the Ravine against a tough and regionally-ranked Henderson State made for a tremendous regular-season finale, as the Tigers eked out their fourth win in a row with a 24-21 victory.

No. 6 Lenoir-Rhyne (11-0)
Big wins: Sept. 14 vs. Virginia Union, 28-11; Nov. 2 vs. Wingate, 20-13

The Bears pulled through in a tremendous South Atlantic Conference matchup against nationally-ranked Wingate, winning 20-13 at Moretz Stadium. Lenoir-Rhyne has now reeled off 12-straight at home, the second-longest current streak in DII football.

No. 7 Colorado School of Mines (11-0)
Big wins: Sept. 21 vs. CSU-Pueblo, 34-14

The Orediggers have been impressive, and the emergence of freshman quarterback John Matocha has complemented the already strong offense very well. The scarier part is that the Mines pulled off back-to-back shutouts earlier this season and are a well-rounded, fine-tuned machine heading down the stretch.

No. 9 Slippery Rock (11-0)
Big wins: Oct. 12 vs. Indiana (Pa), 45-42; Nov. 2 vs. Cal (Pa), 31-28; Kutztown on Nov. 16, 37-35

The Rock is in the driver's seat and locked up the PSAC West with a last-second field goal to beat Cal (Pa) on Nov. 2. Slippery Rock hasn't lost a conference game in the regular season since 2017. The Rock won the PSAC championship defeating then-undefeated Kutztown 37-35.

DII HISTORY: Longest winning streaks | Home wins | All-time winningest teams | Most played rivalries

No. 11 Bowie State (11-0)
Big wins: Oct. 19 vs. Virginia State, 24-12; Oct. 26 vs. Virginia Union, 52-17; Nov. 16 vs. Fayetteville State, 23-7

The Bulldogs handled one of its threats to the CIAA crown in Week 7, and completely dominated Virginia Union one week later. Ja'Rome Johnson has been impressive in the post-Amir Hall era, allowing the Bulldogs to not skip a beat in remaining the cream of the crop in the CIAA.

Bowie State will host a game for sure. My prediction is Virginia State will get the #7 spot. With the new travel rules VSU will travel to Bowie and upset them in game one of the playoffs.

New rule also says they are supposed to avoid first round rematches.  Plus if VSU makes it having to travel to Wingate or LR would be well under the 600 mile flight requirement.

I'm hopeful you guys make it, but it's a waiting game to see if Miles will get in over you guys with the Earned Access rule.

My guess is you guys get the #3 seed and host Carson Newman.  Unless the new travel rule comes into play and they pull a team from SR1 and have y'all play them in the first round.

Maybe. I really didn't think the Earned Access would happen this time. Best of luck to Bowie State and Miles.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
