SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Coming into Sunday’s NCAA Division II football championship selection show, the Savannah State football players and staff felt like they had a good chance of hearing their name called.
The Tigers entered the weekend ranked No. 8 in the Super Region Two bracket but, with No. 6 Mars Hill losing to Wingate, Savannah State was hopeful they’d be able to jump into the Top-7 and earn a spot in the playoff field.
Instead, it was No. 9 Lenoir-Rhyne jumping Savannah State to earn the region’s seventh and final playoff berth.
Savannah State ends the season at 8-2, with the two losses coming on the road to 1-seed Valdosta State and 4-seed Albany State.
WSAV is expecting to get Savannah State head football coach Shawn Quinn thoughts on the committee’s decision to leave his team out during Sunday’s season finale of “Kickin’ It With Quinn.” You can check out the full conversation with Quinn Sunday night right here on the WSAV Sports page.
