And there you have it ladies and gentlemen. Your Hammer Tournament XII Pre-Tournament Standings. The Wild Card game between #4 Southwestern Oklahoma State and #5 Northeastern Oklahoma A&M will be posted on the Tuesday or Wednesday following the Super Bowl. This game will take place in Weatherford, OK and will be a rematch of the 2010 Wild Card game that ended with Southwestern losing to Northeastern 2 to 0. This will also be only the 2nd time these two teams have met in the Hammer Tournament.
The First Semifinal Game will be face the #2 Kansas City Chiefs against the #3 University of Central Missouri. This game will take place at Kansas City, MO and will be a rematch of the 2010 Semifinal game that ended with Kansas City losing to Central Missouri at Warrensburg, MO by the score of 17 to 5.
The winner of the Wild Card game between SWOSU and NEO will advance to play #1 Oklahoma in the second Semifinal Game. Southwestern has played Oklahoma 3 times in the Hammer Tournament. Back to back championships in 2006 and 2007 then the semifinal game in 2012. Oklahoma has never lost to Southwestern Oklahoma State in the Hammer Tournament.
The other possible match up in the second semifinal is Oklahoma Vs. Northeastern Oklahoma A&M. The Oklahoma-NEO game has had a very storied past here in the Hammer Tournament. These two teams have met a total of 10 times. Although OU has defeated NEO 9 times out of 10 (5 of the last 6) it is still a match up that always produces amazing results.
I hope everyone will check out the simulated results.
