CPD Semifinal Matchups Set

by Ted Hardy

The College Premier Division is down to the final four teams left in the competition. A season that began with 31 teams in four conferences is now down to four teams. Just three games remain to play in which to decide the CPD’s first-ever champion.

Utah came away as the only underdog to claim victory in the quarterfinals with Cal, BYU, and Arkansas State all advancing with home victories.

The semifinals this coming weekend will be broadcast on ESPN3 with delayed broadcast on ESPU.
