Pirates try to move on in Division III playoffs


Whitworth is about ready to kick off one of the Pirates (10-0) most important games in the 100 years they’ve been playing football.

As Steve Bergum points out in his advance, the Pirates opponent, Occidental College, isn’t a pushover. The Tigers are undefeated as well, and have won their last 25 regular season games.

So today’s (noon; 1230-AM) NCAA Division III game at the Pine Bowl could be a close, tough matchup.


The Idaho Vandals are out of town (2 p.m.; 1080-AM) to face fallen-on-hard-times Fresno State. But, as Jim Meehan points out in today’s story, the Vandals season has been an unpredictable one.

Check Jim’s Vandal blog after the game for a score and links to a game story.
