The D2 Football playoffs are just hours away and the final 28 teams of the 2017 season are ready to get underway and fight their way towards a national title.
To take a look at each matchup in the first weekend of play, we have gathered resources from here at HERO using our comparison tools, as well as notable statistics for individual players to breakdown each game as only we at HERO can.
Super Region Two is home to a couple of teams who could easily sneak their way into the final four in the country, but there are some heavy hitters looking to take the mantle of "favorite" all the way through towards the end-game.
Who will advance into the regional semifinals? Find out below!
(2) Virginia State vs (7) West Georgia
Saturday, 1:00 p.m. ET
Virginia State benefited greatly from the CIAA moving out of SR1 into SR2 this season, and finished as the only undefeated team in the region. But their battle against West Georgia should be a tough one, as the Wolves have playoff experience over the last few years that the older players could feed on.
Not to say VSU doesn't have experience though, but a slightly new environment may cause some hiccups early. But in the end, the running attack for the Trojans will be too much for UWG to handle, and the CIAA will represent itself well with a win in the opening round and a date with either Wingate or West Florida in the week ahead.
