Catawba won its previous first round games, 48-17 over Fort Valley State in 1999 and 28-24 over West Georgia last season. This year, Catawba will entertain the University of Central Arkansas on Nov. 17 at Shuford Stadium. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. Catawba, 9-1 and ranked ninth in the AFCA poll, is coming off a 31-14 win over Lenoir- Rhyne to give the Indians their second straight South Atlantic Conference Championship. Central Arkansas, ranked eighth by the AFCA poll, fell in its regular season finale, 33-28 to Arkansas Tech. The Bears of the Gulf South Conference enter the playoffs with a 9-2 record.
