The Colorado State University-Pueblo football team has earned a bid to the 2018 NCAA Division II Championships as the No. 5 seed in Super Region Four and will travel to play No. 4-seed Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado Nov. 17.
This is the seventh overall postseason appearance (1982 NAIA) for the program and sixth appearance in the NCAA Division II postseason (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015*, 2017, 2018 - 2015 appearance was removed from NCAA records due to self-reported violation of ineligible players).
