The NCAA is sending the Husson Eagles to Western New England University in Springfield, Massachusetts for the first round of the Division III playoffs.

It will be the Eagles second trip to the NCAA playoffs in the last three years.

Husson will travel to WNE with their ECFC conference championship and a 9-1 record.

The Golden Bears of WNE are 10-0 and champions of the New England Football Conference. The NEFC is the conference Maine Maritime Academy plays in and the same conference that MIT plays in. The Eagles lost to MIT in overtime in the NCAA playoffs two years ago.

The game will be next Saturday with a gametime TBA.
