Saturday's area Division II, III football playoff games

UMD is the nation's top-ranked Division II team, but was pushed to overtime last week before downing St. Cloud State 20-17. Augustana was more impressive, defeating No. 6 Grand Valley State 38-6. Minnesota Duluth needed a 19-yard field goal by David Nadeau as time expired in regulation, then won it on a 24-yarder by Nadeau in overtime. The question is whether the Bulldogs have enough offensive punch without All-America running back Isaac Odim, lost for the season because of a knee injury in mid-October. Chase Vogler rushed for a career-high 109 yards and one TD and completed 12 of 16 passes for 132 yards against St. Cloud State. Augustana forced six Grand Valley turnovers and scored the game's first 31 points in winning the school's first playoff game. Tyler Schulte had three touchdown catches vs. GVSU, giving him a school-record 17 for the season.
