Top-ranked Fort Scott Community College announced Tuesday that it will play No. 2 Blinn (Texas) on Dec. 6 in the Citizens Bank Bowl at Pittsburg for the NJCAA football championship.
"What else was there?" Fort Scott coach Jeff Sims said. "It had to be 1 vs. 2 or it wouldn't have been a real national championship game."
Blinn (10-1), champion of the Southwest Junior College Football Conference, made its way to the national title game by beating then-No. 1 Navarro 45-34 in the league title game. The win avenged Blinn's only loss of the season.
Fort Scott (11-0) won the 1970 national title and sealed its spot in this year's title game by defeating two-time defending national champion Butler twice over the last three weeks of the season.
