Playoff fact: The 10-team league has teams in D-II, Region 7 (Piqua, Sidney, Troy), D-II, Region 8 (Fairborn, Stebbins, West Carrollton and Xenia) and D-III, Region 12 (Butler, Greenville and Tippecanoe). All these teams jumped from the GWOC to revive a second version of the MVL this season.
Who's in: Troy has clinched but needs to beat Piqua to secure a first-round home game. Xenia also has clinched and will secure the No. 4 spot in Region 8 by beating Fairborn, which would give the Bucs a first-round home game. That's significant, because Xenia has never qualified for the postseason.

Win and in: Piqua's game at Troy essentially is a D-II, Region 7 play-in game for the Indians. Troy would still make it with a loss, but not Piqua.
Bubble team: Greenville must defeat Sidney for a slim shot at cracking the D-III, Region 12 field. At best the Green Wave would be a No. 8 seed, meaning its reward would be at a top seed.
Who's out: Butler (2-7), Fairborn (3-6), Sidney (3-6), Stebbins (2-6), Tippecanoe (3-6) and West Carrollton (2-7).
