For the fourth year in-a-row and fifth time ever, CAA Football will make up half the final four squads in the NCAA Division I Football Championship. Delaware advanced to the semifinals with a 16-3 win over CAA Football foe New Hampshire Friday evening. Villanova then went on the road to top Appalachian State, 42-24, at The Rock.
Game times will be announced later today as the semfinals are now set in regards to matchups. Delaware will host Georgia Southern and Villanova will travel to Eastern Washington. Previous NCAA and ESPN programming schedules indicated that one of the semifinal games would be an 8 p.m. (ET) kickoff, Friday, Dec. 17 on ESPN2HD, while the second semifinal would kick at noon (ET), Saturday, Dec. 18 on ESPNU. Once we know you will be able to find out that information on our schedule/results page on CAASports.com and by following us on Twitter.
Thanks to the 55 voters in our fan poll which asked which of the four quarterfinal contests was the most intriguing. Turns out North Dakota State/Eastern Washington might have been the most competitive after it went into overtime and the final result came after a video replay review. Keep an eye out here at the blog and we will have a new poll posted later this week.

Due to NCAA regulations teams are limited in what can be shot and used on websites in the way of video…thus we are limited in the video content we provide here on the blog. Please accept our apologies. Feel free to hit up The CAA Football Pressbox for updated stats and more.
