Potential St. John's-St. Thomas rematch in D3 playoffs; Minn. St. starts D2 tourney at home


ST. PAUL, Minnesota — St. Thomas and St. John's are again on track for a postseason rematch.

The MIAC rivals would meet in the second round of the NCAA Division III football playoffs, if they both win their first games. The 32-team bracket was set late Sunday. St. Thomas will host the University of La Verne from California this weekend, and St. John's will host the University of Dubuque from Iowa.

The Tommies beat the Johnnies 35-14 in September.

UMAC champion St. Scholastica will play at Wisconsin-Oshkosh in the first round.

In Division II, Minnesota State will host Emporia State of Kansas in Mankato Saturday afternoon. The Mavericks reached the national championship game last season.
