Per WIAC.com, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, winner of 12 of the last 15 titles, is the favorite to secure the 2021 Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) football championship, according to a preseason poll conducted by the league’s head coaches and sports information directors.
The 2020 season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic for all eight WIAC teams.
The Warhawks, ranked second nationally in a preseason poll by Lindy’s Sports and fourth by both D3football.com and College Football America, have claimed a league-best 37 conference titles. UW-Whitewater brings back nine starters on offense and three starters on defense from the 2019 campaign. The defensive unit will be led by defensive lineman Mackenzie Balanganayi, who was chosen the 2019 WIAC Defensive Player of the Year.
