Two more classic Mount Union football games are on tap to be broadcast by WIVM-TV in Canton and simulcast online Saturday, April 25.

WIVM-TV is on channel 39 over the air, channel 989 on Spectrum cable in Stark County and online at WIVMTV.com. Fans can also add the LiveStream app on their smart TV and search for WIVM.

At 2 p.m., the station will broadcast the 1997 NCAA playoff game between Mount Union and Allegheny at Mount Union Stadium. The Raiders were undefeated and defending national champs taking on an Allegheny team that was 9-1 with eight-straight wins.

At 8 p.m., the station will broadcast a 2014 regular season matchup between Mount Union and John Carroll in Alliance, Ohio. The Ohio Athletic Conference title was on the line as it was the final regular season game of the season and both teams were nationally ranked as Mount Union was No. 3 along with No. 6 ranked John Carroll.

Joe Tait, Jeff Shreve and Harry Paidas are on the call for both games produced by Image Video, which operates WIVM-TV

In between the two Mount Union games, WIVM will broadcast the 2011 version of the nation's top high school football rivalry -- Massillon vs. McKinley.
