Our own UWO Titans are off to Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon for the NCAA playoff game on Saturday, December 1st. Both teams are unbeaten! UWO has a 12-0 record after winning this last Saturday to Bethel University in Minnesota. The Titans have won 14 consecutive games for the longest active winning streak in NCAA football.
Linfield College is going to be a challenge but one that the Titans will no doubt do well with. UW-Oshkosh is appearing in postseason play for the first time in school history, while Linfield College is competing in the playoffs for the 24th time, including its ninth in the NCAA Division III Championship.
Both teams rank among the NCAA Division III statistical leaders in several categories. UW-Oshkosh ranks ninth in the country in total offense (501.2 yards), 11th in scoring (40 points) and turnover margin (+16), 12th in scoring defense (14.2), 14th in rushing offense (263.4) and 17th in rushing defense (89.7).
Saturday’s game will be the first between UW-Oshkosh and Linfield College. The winner advances to play fourth-ranked University of St. Thomas (Minn.) or seventh-ranked Hobart College (N.Y.) in a semifinal of the 32-team tournament on Dec. 8. The national championship game (Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl) is scheduled for Dec. 14 in Salem, Va.
We would like to wish our hometown team the UWO Titans good luck in your upcoming game!
