The Valley City State Vikings were eliminated in the first round of FCS action in Helena, Mont., Saturday afternoon by the No. 2 ranked Carroll College Fighting Saints. Offensive miscues plagued the Vikings early on, and they could not regain their composure against a forceful Carroll team on the road. The Vikings went into the playoffs ranked No. 12 in the NAIA, and exit with an overall record of 9-2.

It was a chilly preview of the the not-so-warm welcome they are apt to receive from the Carroll College Fighting Saints on Saturday.
On a blustery Wednesday afternoon practice at Shelly Ellig Field, the VCSU Vikings sported sweats under their practice jerseys and athletic tape over the ear holes of their helmets to keep the cold at bay. General griping arose about the frozen water coolers, and the lightly frozen turf crackled crisply underfoot.
VCSU Vikings Football swept the Dakota Athletic Conference Postseason Awards, with LeTheo Proctor garnering the conference MVP award, Jordan Maher snagging Most Valuable Senior, and Head Coach Dennis McCulloch earning DAC Coach of the Year honors.

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.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) â€” Going into Monday night's game against the Minnesota Vikings, the feeling is becoming familiar for the Green Bay Packers: Another week, another win, another uneasy feeling about the state of the defense.
The reigning Super Bowl champions are the NFL's only undefeated team at 8-0 and have won a franchise-record 14 straight games going back to last season, including playoffs. It has been so long since the Packers actually lost a game that defensive players now seem to be stewing about substandard performances in victories the same way they might after a loss.
FARGO, N.D. (AP) â€” Four North Dakota high school football champions are being crowned at the Fargodome on Friday.
