SALEM, Va. (AP) - Matt Behrendt threw four touchdown passes and Wisconsin-Whitewater's defense stymied Gagliardi Trophy-winner Kevin Burke and Mount Union in a 52-14 victory in the Division III championship Friday night.
Behrendt hit Jake Kumerow and Tyler Huber for two touchdowns each, and Jordan Ratliffe ran for a pair of scores as the Warhawks (15-0) continued their domination of the series between the two powerhouse programs in Division III.
Whitewater has won four straight and five of its last six meetings with Mount Union in the Stagg Bowl. The teams have met eight times in the last nine years in the division's championship game.
The Purple Raiders (14-1), national champions last season when the Warhawks failed to make the postseason, committed four second-half turnovers and suffered their worst loss since falling 48-0 to Wittenberg in 1974. That game took place before their first-year head coach, Vince Kehres, was born.
The Warhawks led 21-14 at halftime and took command in the third quarter, turning a fumble recovery into a touchdown and a defensive stand at their 5 into a field goal that made it 31-14.
