By Kimberly Johnson, 07/14/16, 11:30PM CDT


St. Paul, Mn  There is a lot at stake this weekend as the Twin Cities Sabercats football team hosts the South Metro Patriots in their second meeting.  In their first match up in Burnsville, MN, the game came down to the very last plays and the Sabercats were able to come out on top with the W.

The Sabercats and the Patriots were battling hard in a defensive dog fight with several 4th quarter turnovers by both teams. 

The game this Saturday will kick off at 2pm and fans will be witness to the #2 Sabercats looking to clinch the Division Title.  If they win this weekend, the Director of the Northern States Football League {NSFL} will present the Division Trophy to the Team following the game. 

The South Metro Patriots do have a chance to take this title from the Sabercats as well.  The Sabercats and Patriots have extremely similar records and if the Patriots manage to split the series, the Division title will be decided by the final regular season game.

Not only the Division title on the line, there is also a race to see who will take the first round bye and the host the first round of the playoffs; scheduled for July 30. 

Who will come out on top this weekend?
