Postseason football is coming back to Ken White Field, as Reinhardt will host Indiana’s Marian University on Saturday in the first round of the NAIA playoffs.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m.

Reinhardt (8-0), the five-time defending Mid-South Conference Appalachian Division champion, finished the season at No. 8 in the final NAIA Top 25 poll announced last Sunday.

Reinhardt will face Marian (5-1), which was ninth in the national rankings, for the second straight time in the first round of the playoffs.

In 2019, the Knights opened the playoffs that season with a 17-7 win over Reinhardt before advancing to the NAIA title game, where they fell 40-38 to Morningside.

Reinhardt was the NAIA national runner-up in 2017.

Saturday’s game could be a shootout as Reinhardt will come into the game averaging 43.5 points per game, while Marian is averaging 36.8.

Tickets can be purchased at www.reinhardteagles.com. Tickets can be printed at home or scanned from a mobile device at the gate.

All attendees must wear masks and are asked to socially distance unless traveling together.
