The NAIA has announced the postseason football pairings. No. 1 Georgetown College (10-0) will host No. 18 Bethel University (8-3) in the NAIA Football Championship Series First Round. The two Mid-South Conference foes were the league's respective divisional champions and played back on Sept. 29. Georgetown picked up the 63-21 win.

Kickoff is set for 3:30 pm Saturday at Toyota Stadium on iHigh Field. Fox College Sports will broadcast the game.

Tickets will be sold Tuesday-Friday outside the cafeteria from 11 am-1:30 pm for regular season prices - $15 for chair backs, $12 for bleacher backs and $10 for general admission. General public can purchase tickets at the same price through Thursday, but the price doubles on Friday. Day of the game, prices will double for everyone.

Present a G-Card and purchase general admission tickets for a discounted rate of $5.

GC is 7-0 against the Wildcats all-time. The win this season marked coaches Bill Cronin's, Craig Mullins', Bruce Owens', Steve Hill's and Marty Park's 150th with the Orange & Black.

"Bethel is a very good team," Cronin said. "They started the season as No. 11 in the nation, went 2-2 early on trying to find a rhythm under first-year head coach Chris Elliot. They left here 2-3 and finished the season on six-straight wins.

"I expect it to be a great game and a tough first round matchup."

In those six games, BU beat Faulkner - which jumped in and out of the rankings this season - and Cumberland University - which finished rank No. 20 and just on the outside of being a fourth MSC playoff team.

No. 7 University of the Cumberlands (9-1) will host MidAmerica Nazarene (8-2) in a noon contest.
