Benedictine to Host Tabor in First Round

The eighth-ranked Ravens will play the first round of the NAIA playoffs at Larry Wilcox Stadium
(ATCHISON, Kan.) No. 8 Benedictine will host Tabor College in the first round of the NAIA playoffs this Saturday at 1 p.m. at Larry Wilcox Stadium in Athcison, Kan.

This is the second trip to the postseason in three years for the Ravens and their 12th appearance in the NAIA FCS in the modern era.  It's also the first home game to start the playoffs for Benedictine since 2001.

The Ravens (10-1, 8-1) gathered on campus Sunday to find out their postseason seeding via the NAIA Selection Show. Benedictine wrapped up a share of the Heart of America Athletic Conference Championship with a 38-24 win over Evangel on Saturday.

The conference title, shared with Baker and Missouri Valley, marks the sixth championship in program history for the Ravens and the third tri-championship in HAAC history.

11th-ranked Tabor (9-2, 7-2) finished second in the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference. Benedictine leads the all-time series with the Bluejays 4-0, with the last meeting coming in 1977.

"The guys accomplished winning the conference, being ranked in the top ten in the nation, and being able to host a game," head coach Larry Wilcox said. "To have that for our fans here and our family here at Benedictine is a great thing."
