UW-Whitewater (5-1, 3-0 WIAC) is the three-time defending NCAA Division III champion. The Warhawks have also won the past seven WIAC titles. UW-Whitewater is led by senior running back Desmin Ward and junior linebacker Kyle Wismer. The Warhawks have won four straight games since dropping a 7-6 contest to Buffalo State (N.Y.) on Sept. 15.
UW Oshkosh (6-0, 3-0 WIAC) is led by by senior quarterback Nate Wara and senior linebacker Taylor Goodman. The Titans have won their last eight games, scoring 34-plus points in six of those contests. UW Oshkosh’s unbeaten start to the 2012 season is its best since 1923.
Saturday’s contest is the 104th between the two teams. Last season, the Titans led late in the third quarter before the Warhawks pulled out a 20-17 victory.
UW Oshkosh will be playing in front of their largest television audience in 30 years. The Titans were on CBS Sports for a regionally-televised game at UW-Stout during the 1982 season.
