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.
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.
