The University of Maine Black Bears football team knows a few things after its 32-21 win over UMass Saturday afternoon.
Maine (8-2) has clinched an NCAA Berth (no, that is not official; but a Colonial Athletic Association team with eight wins is going to get into the NCAA's).
With a 6-1 CAA record, the Black Bears are tied for first place with Towson, which out-gunned New Hampshire Saturday, 56-42.
Maine plays at UNH next Saturday. Towson plays Rhode Island.
In NCAA Division III tournament competitions Saturday:
Bowdoin field hockey beat Keen State 4-0 in the second round.
UMass-Boston volleyball beat Bowdoin in a thriller - 23-25, 25-15, 17-25, 25-18, 15-7 - in the second round.
Trinity men's soccer topped St. Joseph's 1-0 in the first round.
