Bethel, St. Scholastica to play indoors

Mall of America Field

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Metrodome is about to host what will likely be the last college football game played under the Teflon-topped stadium.

Bethel (Minn.) will play St. Scholastica at the downtown venue now known as Mall of America Field on Saturday afternoon in the first round of the NCAA Division III playoffs. The game was moved inside this week because of a weather forecast calling for a high of about 15 degrees and a wind chill around zero.

Bethel received one of the top four seeds in the 32-team tournament. The Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference champion Royals are 10-0.

The Saints won the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference for the third consecutive year. They are 9-1.
