UW-W Football Earns NCAA Bid, Will Host Monmouth Saturday

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater football team will compete in the NCAA Division III Championship for the 13th time in the last 15 years and 16th time in program history starting this Saturday, Nov. 23, as it hosts Monmouth (Ill.) in the first round at Perkins Stadium.
 
Saturday’s game will kick off at 12 p.m.
 
The Warhawks (9-1 overall) earned one of five Pool C, or at-large, spots in the 32-team national tournament. The team claimed a share of the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference championship, the program’s league-leading 37th conference title.
 
UW-Whitewater was ranked first in the NCAA West Region and third in the nation by both D3football.com and the American Football Coaches Association last week.
 
Monmouth (7-2) was named a Pool A, or automatic, qualifier after winning the Midwest Conference championship with a 10-7 victory over St. Norbert on Saturday. The Fighting Scots are making their third appearance in the NCAA Playoffs in the last five years.
