UW-Whitewater Warhawk logoThe UW-Whitewater Warhawks are in familiar territory, just one win shy of a trip to the NCAA Division 3 National Championship game.

The Warhawks are very familiar with their opponent, Mount Union, but their meetings usually come in the title game.  The two teams have met in the National Championship Stagg Bowl game nine times in the last ten years.  The Warhawks have won the last five.

Today, the two teams meet in the semifinal round, on Mount Union’s home field in Alliance, Ohio.

The Purple Raiders are undefeated and ranked number-one in the nation coming in.  Their powerful offense is averaging 55 points a game.

The Warhawks advanced by beating WIAC rival Oshkosh 31-29 last Saturday in Oshkosh.

The winner heads to the Stagg Bowl championship game in Salem, Virginia next week.
