CAT | Game day live
Watch the game on ESPNU, listen to it on http://d3football.com/videolink/stagg-bowl, and interact with us here as Mount Union takes on St. Thomas in Stagg Bowl XL. The Purple Raiders are seeking their 11th national championship and first since 2008. The Tommies are making their first appearance in Salem.
Two of the nation’s top defenses will try to slow two sophomore quarterbacks who have been playing beyond their years in this postseason. How will the Tommies’ handle their first championship game? Will the Purple Raiders seniors play tense, knowing this is their last chance to avoid becoming the first Mount Union class without a ring since the 1989 freshmen?
Let us know your thoughts on the game and interact with us throughout the night.
Alright, here we go. Pat and Keith are heading to the tailgate shortly and will greet the early arrivals! Meanwhile, join us in the live chat below as well, or tweet with the #d3fb hashtag.
If you want to keep UW-Whitewater and Mount Union from meeting in Stagg Bowl XXXIX, your options are down to one pair of games on Saturday: Wesley has the last shot at Mount Union and St. Thomas has the last chance to take down UW-Whitewater. In the preseason D3football.com Top 25, UW-Whitewater was No. 1, Mount Union No. 2, Wesley No. 3 and St. Thomas was No. 5, so these matchups are four months in the making.
Join us on the live chat. Watch the games on television if you’re in one of the local markets, or on ESPN3.com via links on the D3football.com scoreboard. Use the #d3fb hashtag. Send up smoke signals, I don’t care. It’s game day!
Mike Asiedu and the Wesley defense face a potent UMHB offense.

We have two interesting cross-region quarterfinals, where two East teams can give the region some long-awaited credibility with games against West Region opponents. We also have a 2002 quarterfinal rematch and a multiple-time rematch in the South. You’ve already seen our picks, and thanks to those who have weighed in there as well.
We’ll be following along all day with our live chat below, and you can join in the chat window or by using the #d3fb hashtag on Twitter. Just one noon game and three 1 p.m. games, so Mount Union-Wabash gets center stage to start off.
Not that you can watch it.
This could be McMurry’s last formal day as a Division III football team.
