The matchup is set for Fantasy Bowl XXV. The 25th consecutive championship game in our fantasy league will feature the #1 seed MassIll Mud facing off against the #4 seed Dallas Armadillos.
MassIll owner Ronnie Feldman — who was able to choose his opponent between Miami and Dallas for Week 15 — chose wisely. The Mud won a tight 50-46 contest over the Miami Muffdivers. Both teams fell short of their projected scores, but the Mud advance and improve their record to a league-best 12-1 going into the final.
Dallas improves to 10-4 and confidently advances to the final with a 80-49 win over second-seeded New Chester. The Thorobreds fell far short of their projected scored (68) while Dallas easily exceeded their projection (62). Dallas’ 80 points ties the team’s 3rd-highest single week score of the season. (Dallas also notably extends it’s lead in the overall points race, which was 1 point over NCT coming into this week.)
The Mud makes their first trip to the championship game in 12 years, and 4th overall trip to the Fantasy Bowl. They have a 1-2 record in previous appearances. The Graynbald Mud won Fantasy Bowl VII in 1998, and lost title games in both 2002 and 2004.
Dallas is making it’s 3rd trip to the Fantasy Bowl — all within the past 4 seasons. Dallas lost the title game in 2013, but returned and won Fantasy Bowl XXIII in 2014.
