When Northwest Missouri State plays in the NCAA Division II national semifinals tomorrow afternoon, it should feel like deja vu. Just last year, the Bearcats rolled to a semifinal victory before losing the national title game to Grand Valley.

But while the setting is familiar, the opponent is not. Bloomsburg (Penn.) is a team Northwest has never faced. Nevertheless, the Bearcats are a perfect 3-0 in national semifinal contests, winning in 1998 and 1999 on their way to back-to-back national titles, and last year.

Bloomsburg comes into this game with a record of 12-1. Northwest is a perfect 13-0.

Kickoff is set for 4:36 PM.
