By Florida Tech // November 2, 2015
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – On Monday, the NCAA released the most recent edition of the Division II Football Regional Rankings, with Florida Tech moving into the eighth spot in Super Region II.
The Panthers’ position in the poll has major playoff implications as the top-7 from each super region qualify for postseason play.
Though FIT is currently one spot out of the last playoff position, one of the teams ahead of the Panthers, North Greenville, will only play seven games against D2 competition this season, eliminating the Crusaders from playoff consideration.
With the playoffs on the line, FIT faces the most important two-game stretch in program history. The Panthers will face No. 1 West Georgia on Saturday at 1 p.m. ET at Florida Tech Panther Stadium. The game marks Senior Day as well as FIT’s annual Homecoming Game.
The following week, the Panthers travel to No. 23 Valdosta State for the regular season finale. FIT will take on the Blazers at 3 p.m.
Fans can purchase tickets to Saturday’s game by visiting FloridaTechSports.com, the FIT Ticket Office Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or by calling the ticket office at 321-674-6228.
As the GSC-TV Game of the Week, presented by Florida’s Space Coast, the game will be broadcasted live on ESPN3 and the WatchESPN app.
