WAVERLY (KWWL) -

The 5th ranked Wartburg football team will open the 2014 postseason at home facing #20 St. Thomas (Minn) on Saturday.

The Knights capped off a perfect 10-0 regular season with an 81-21 thrashing of Loras. Wartburg earned the Iowa Conference's automatic bid into the bracket and was the only conference school invited in to the field of 32. This is the 11th playoff berth under head coach Rick Willis.

St. Thomas (8-2) earned an at-large bid after tying for second in the MIAC conference.

Despite their close proximity, the Knights and Thommies have never previously met on the football field.
