Another classic Mount Union football game is scheduled to be broadcast by WIVM-TV in Canton and simulcast online Saturday, August 8.
At 8 p.m., the station will broadcast a 2006 Ohio Athletic Conference matchup between Mount Union and Ohio Northern. The Purple Raiders won the 2005 national title with a 14-1 record -- that lone loss was a 21-14 home defeat to Ohio Northern -- and the Polar Bears were back in Alliance in 2006.
That day the Raider defense was led by current Avon Lake head coach Matt Kostelnik while future NFL wide reciever Pierre Garcon was on offense for Mount Union.
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.
