Hawk Wings LogoPresident Michael Driscoll has declared this Friday, November 16, Crimson Hawks Day! Everyone is encouraged to wear their IUP gear in a show of team spirit for the Hawks as they head into the NCAA Division II Super Region 1 Football Championships on Saturday.

The Hawks host the Shepherd University Rams here at George P. Miller Stadium. Kick-off is at noon.

IUP enters the NCAAs seeded third, fresh from their 41–10 win over Shippensburg in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference championship game on November 10.

It's the first time IUP has won the PSAC title since 1987. (The PSAC discontinued the championship game from 1988 through 2008.)

The Rams are seeded sixth.
