The No. 5 ranked University of Wisconsin-Whitewater football team posted more than 500 yards of total offense for the fourth time in its last five games and forced three turnovers Saturday in a 54-21 triumph over St. Norbert in the second round of the NCAA Division III Championship at Perkins Stadium.
The Warhawks (12-0 overall), who own the second-longest active winning streak in Division III at 18 games, advance to next Saturday’s quarterfinal, where they’ll face No. 11 Bethel (Minn.). The Royals advanced past No. 9 North Central (Ill.) with a 27-24 victory.
Next Saturday’s game time and location will be announced Sunday. Next Saturday’s game against Bethel is the first-ever meeting between the Royals and Warhawks.
