Davenport made it official with an 85-10 defeat of Michigan State, Saturday, finishing their Midwest-East College D1AA league season 6-0 and securing a place at the national playoffs.
The Michigan college finished with an average league game score of 67-9.
They will be joined by Wisconsin, which has already clinched the Midwest-West, and is expected t win their final match this weekend against UW-Stout.
It's distinctly possible that more than one team from these divisions will make the playoffs, as there are some at-large bids available. Minnesota (5-1 in the West) and Bowling Green are in with a strong shot to claim one of those spots.
Bowling Green, for their part, edged Miami of Ohio in a barnburner 43-28.
The key moment for BGSU was at the beginning of the second half, when they ran in two quick converted tries. That gave the Falcons a cushion that they needed, as the two teams traded tries from then on. Miami scored last, but weren't able to close the gap all the way.
"We have a knack for letting teams back into games," said BGSU head Coach Tony Mazzarella. "We have had, I think, an up and down year. We needed to be more consistent. But it was good to win."
The big piece of news for BGSU is that they may have found a goalkicker, as prop forward Dane Szente emerged as a reliable points-producer, kicking 4/5 conversions.
