MADISON -

For the first time since 2008, two teams will represent the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) in the NCAA Division III Football Championship after University of Wisconsin-Platteville and UW-Whitewater earned bids into this year's 32-team field.

The Pioneers received one of eight available at-large invitations, while the Warhawks earned an automatic bid by winning the WIAC championship. Both teams will host first round contests on Nov. 23.

UW-Platteville (9-1) will make its first-ever NCAA Division III postseason showing and face Concordia University (Wis.) (8-2), while UW-Whitewater (10-0) will meet St. Norbert College (Wis.) (8-2).

The Warhawks are appearing in the event for the 11th time in program history - and eighth in the last nine seasons - and won national titles in 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011.
