2021 Division III Football Playoff Bracket, Results

Andrew Kamienski, North Central Cardinals

The North Central Cardinals will have the chance to defend their 2019 national championship, and the results of the quarterfinal round are complete. The Cardinals are still on a path toward a successful title defense with a 55-6 win over RPI.

The path to the Division II national championship game continues through the championship game, which will be held on Friday, Dec. 17, at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio.

The 2020 postseason was canceled due to COVID-19. So Division III has not crowned a national champion since the Cardinals defeated UW-Whitewater in December of 2019.

The complete bracket and results are below.

The College Football America 2021 Yearbook  features more than 900 college football teams from the United States and Canada in more than 250 striking, full-color pages. That includes every team from the NCAA (FBS, FCS, Division II and Division III), NAIA, NJCAA, CCCAA and U Sports (Canada). It also includes updates on club football, one-year postgraduate prep/sports academies and Mexican college football, along with dozens of action shots and stadium photos taken by the CFA staff.

The print edition is available online via Amazon.com and other major retailers such as Barnes & Noble.
