Nov 4, 2023 by Joe Harrington

Susquehanna Football clinched at least a share of the Landmark Football Conference title when they beat Moravian University 33-14 in Week 9.

At 5-0 in conference play with just one game left on Nov. 11, the River Hawks can win an outright title with losses by Moravian and Lycoming College in the final weeks. 

Those two schools play each other in Week 10, which will eliminate one from the conference title race. Susquehanna ends the season hosting Lycoming College. 

Now Susquehanna can look at the bigger picture. They stayed ranked at No. 12 after the win in the NCAA Division III Coaches Poll for Week 10.

How Many Teams Make The NCAA Division III Football Playoffs?

Division III plays its football postseason—officially called the NCAA Division III Football Championship – in a 32-team, single-elimination tournament, a number of teams that has remained the same since 2005. 

All qualified teams are competing to move on and advance far enough for the right to play in the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl, the division’s national title game, held every December (with the exception of 2020’s pandemic-canceled game) since 1973, the first season of the NCAA’s current three-division system.

Which Teams Qualify For The NCAA Division III Football Playoffs?

There are very specific requirements in order to earn a bid to the Division III playoffs, and if you don’t earn an automatic bid … well, you might just be out of luck. 

Of the 32 bids awarded, 28 are automatically given out to conference winners, up from 27, as the Landmark Conference (mostly featuring schools in eastern Pennsylvania) will begin sponsoring football this season. 

The other four bids – down from five because of the Landmark’s new auto-bid—to be handed out this season are at-large bids, with the amount available to different teams fitting different criteria (more on that later in this piece) having the potential to vary year by year. 

Winning your league, therefore, arguably is more important in Division III than any other level of football in the NCAA, as it’s truly the only surefire way to ensure you’ll be playing postseason football.
