#4 Sabercats @ #1 Warriors - #3 Invaders @ #2 Pioneers

#1 Minneapolis Warriors (10-0) vs #4 Twin Cities Sabercats (3-7), 4pm

  • June 5, Warriors 48-6
  • July 24, Warriors 56-0

Warriors have been dominant all season, led by QB Ja'Vonte Johnson & DE Brandon Tamsett.  Sabercats will have to play a flawless game while capitalizing on Warrior errors if they want a chance to pull-off this upset. 

Prediction: Warriors continue their undefeated season with a big win on their way to the Championship game.

#2 St Paul Pioneers (8-2) vs #3 Fargo Invaders (6-4), 7:30pm

  • June 5, Pioneers 26-14
  • July 24, Pioneers 14-7

Fargo has never won at Sea Foam Stadium, and have dropped both their games against St Paul this season. The Invaders are defending Champions but have taken a step back this year with inconsistent play.  The Pioneers have shifted to Ray Guyton at QB and have seen an added dimension teams have to prepare for as Guyton has 9 passing TD, 3 rushing TD & 3 receiving TD; Ray & the Pioneers almost knocked off the Warriors in the final regular season game.  Travis Griffin was successful vs Fargo last time these teams played, so look for a heavy dose of the run game in this matchup. 

Prediction: St Paul is coming together at the right time & looking to get back to the Elite Bowl for the first time since 2016.  Balanced offensive attack and a strong defense will punch their ticket.
