The Pioneers lost their first game of the year last week to Willamette and although it was also a Northwest Conference loss can still walk away with the automatic bid into the NCAA playoffs if they can get past Linfield today.
The 'Cats won, 47-14 and claimed the outright Northwest Conference title. Along with that comes the automatic bid into the playoffs.
The wait for the official seeding will last until Sunday afternoon. Then they find out who and where they will play in the first round. It's almost certain that they will be home for their first game but the opponent is open to pretty wild speculation.
