Blinn clinched the fourth and final playoff spot in the Southwest Junior College Football Conference (SWJCFC) with a 44-34 win over Cisco College here Saturday.
The Bucs will play the Trinity Valley Cardinals, the conference champion, next Saturday on the road in Athens, Texas. Kickoff is at 3;00 and the game can be heard live on KWHI at 2:30 with Mark McLain.
Blinn (4-5, 3-3) had to beat Cisco in order to keep its playoff hopes alive, but even a win didn’t guarantee the final seed. The Bucs needed seventh-ranked Tyler to beat Kilgore, and the Apaches did just that, knocking out the Rangers 42-12.
Tyler will take on Navarro in its playoff opener.
