Four AICUO Members in NCAA Football Tournaments


In first-round NCAA Division III football tournament play this weekend, undefeated Mount Union, last year’s national runner-up, hosts Christopher Newport (Va.), while two AICUO members face off in the battle of the Bergs as Wittenberg travels to Heidelberg. Both games begin at noon.

By the way, there will not be an eighth consecutive Mount Union-Wisconsin-Whitewater final, as UWW lost three games during the season and did not qualify for the tournament.

Undefeated Ashland earned a bye in the first round of the NCAA Division II football tournament, and will await the winner of this weekend’s Chadron State-West Texas A&M game for a Nov. 24 second-round contest.
