Madison women's football team headed to playoffs

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Madison Blaze are headed to Utah for the playoffs. 

This is the furthest the back-to-back conference champs have gotten in the playoffs without having a bye week on their side. 

They paved the way by beating Houston, a team they've got a long history with. Historically, Houston has taken down the Blaze... but not this year. 

No matter how they play this weekend, the Blaze are haeded to the national championships two weeks later. There, they'll either play for the national title, or a bowl game to place third or fourth in the league. 

The team is funded by the players, donations, and whatever money the team manages to make. All that travel can really add up. If you'd like to help the Blaze by donating to the travel fund, click here.
