Mount Union Announces 2013 Football Schedule

Mount Union Announces 2013 Football Schedule

Six home regular season home games headline the 2013 Mount Union football schedule.

Mount Union enters the season with a 67-game home field win streak and opens the season at Mount Union Stadium Saturday, Sept. 7 at 1:30 pm against Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference champion Franklin (Ind.).

The game will also be the first for new head coach Vince Kehres, who takes over after 13 years as an assistant coach and last eight as defensive coordinator.

The traditional bye week follows on Sept. 14 and the Ohio Athletic Conference opener is Sept. 21 at 1:30 pm in New Concord against Muskingum.  

The Purple Raiders have won 110 consecutive regular season games dating back to 1991.

The next two home games -- Sept. 28 against Marietta and Oct. 12 versus Wilmington -- will be night games with 7 pm kickoffs.  

In between those games is a road trip to Ohio Northern on Oct. 5 which will be the only game of the season played on natural grass.

There is a trip to Capital on Oct. 19 before Mount Union plays three of its final four games at home -- homecoming with Otterbein on Oct. 26, hall of fame day with Baldwin Wallace on Nov. 9 and the regular season finale with John Carroll on Nov. 16.

The lone road game in that run is Nov. 2 at Heidelberg.

Season and single-game ticket information will be released later in the summer and selected home games are slated to be broadcast on television on WIVM/WIVN TV (Canton/New Philadelphia) and cable sports network SportsTime Ohio.

Every game will be broadcast on the radio on WDPN 1310 AM and WRMU 91.1 FM.

The Purple Raiders enter the 2013 season winners of 21 consecutive OAC championships dating back to 1992. Mount Union is the defending national champion as the Raiders won their record 11th NCAA Division III National Championship last December.
