Junior kicker Rodney Chenos redeemed himself for a fourth-quarter miss by nailing a 20-yard field goal (listen to it here) with one second left in the game to lift Mount Union to its fifth Division III national championship, defeating St. John's 10-7 in a memorable Stagg Bowl XXVIII. It was the second-lowest scoring output in Stagg Bowl and the Purple Raiders tied for the fewest points scored by a Stagg Bowl winner. Keith McMillan recalls a memorable weekend in Salem.
Thanks to our listeners, who made WDCV and the Stagg Bowl broadcast the No. 1 rated station on WebRadio.
