The 2015 season saw another battle of purple teams and another Stagg Bowl rematch, but this was not one of the long string of UW-Whitewater/Mount Union championship games. Instead, it was one of the shorter string of Mount Union-St. Thomas Stagg Bowls, and the Purple Raiders came away with a 49-35 win to win their 12th Division III football national title.
St. Thomas took an early 14-0 lead, but with the wind a factor, Mount Union made it a non-issue, scoring 21 in the third quarter and holding on as St. Thomas got a couple of key bounces to get back into the game.
