Playing in frigid conditions and wind gusts of 30 miles an hour, Mount Union trailed, 24-21, entering the final stanza. It was the first time all season the Purple Raiders trailed entering the final quarter.

In the final frame, Mount Union put together a pair of championship-caliber drives en route to a 34-24 win over the Profs in front of 7,304 fans who packed Salem Stadium.

It was the first Stagg Bowl played in the stadium which now has been home to the event for more than two decades.

"Give them credit, Mount Union made the plays when they had to in the fourth quarter," said Profs' head coach K.C. Keeler. "Mount Union is deserving of the national title."

"This is a great win for everyone associated with our college," Mount Union coach Larry Kehres said.
