First round NAIA playoff match-ups were announced Sunday afternoon, with the No. 12-ranked VCSU Vikings pitted against the No. 2 Carroll College Fighting Saints.
The Vikings will have to be on their toes against an experienced Saints team that will come into the match-up as the defending NAIA National Champion, and 10-1 on the season.
Saturday's game will be VCSU's first playoff appearance since 2001, when they were defeated by Carroll and Coach Mike Van Diest, who holds an .880 career win percentage in his 13-year tenure.
