Mount Union Football

The University of Mount Union football team is preparing to play for its 14th national title in school history. The No. 1 ranked Purple Raiders (14-0) play No. 2 ranked University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (14-0) in the Division III national championship Stagg Bowl Friday night. Mount Union is in the title game for the 21st time since 1993. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says their success lies in the Kehres family.
