Tiffin University (7-1, 5-0 GMAC) will take on Hillsdale (6-3, 4-1) in a huge conference showdown at Frost Kalnow Stadium Nov. 9 on Senior Day in a game that has important postseason implications.
A win would keep TU in line for a NCAA regional appearance as well as maintain an unbeaten GMAC record heading into its season finale at Findlay on Nov. 16. A win would also guarantee the Dragons of a possible slot in the Crossroads Bowl Dec. 7, a game featuring the runner-ups in the GMAC and GLVC.
Tiffin and Hillsdale also met near the end of last season on Nov. 3 with big postseason implications hanging in the balance as both were undefeated in conference play. TU got off to a good start with a 19-17 halftime lead on the road, but the Chargers outscored the Dragons 31-7 in the second half for a 48-26 win.
Tiffin and Hillsdale have faced off 12 times in program history, with the Chargers holding an 8-4 advantage in the series. The last four matchups have been a coin flip, with TU taking victories in 2014 and 2016 while Hillsdale won in 2015 and 2018.
