anyone see the line on this yet?  I use a local and don't have access to the line on this game at the moment.  Being a Whitewater Alum, I am definately biased in my opinion...but I think the Warhawks are due this year. 
 
GO HAWKS!

I heard from someone the line came out at -14 and had moved all the way to -23..that doesn't sound right to me considering this is a championship game..but I don't follow Div III and I've heard Mt. Union is the Patriots of Div III.

Line is 21.5 at the Hilton. 
 
This might be Mount's best team. They should be illigal at this level of football. The closest game this year was 24 points. I live 20 minutes from Mount so I get local coverage. They were up 28-0 after the first quarter in the semi's. Went on to win 62-14.

GabbyJizzy said it best, this might be their best team in quite a while. I graduated from a D3 school who has Mount in their conference(OAC), and they're the real deal, EVERY YEAR. Don't see this game being close at all.

it definitely opened at -14 at 5dimes sunday night or at least that was the first line i saw. it then moved to 17 by around 3am when i went to sleep & then to 23 by monday night. it stands at 21 at the moment at 5d. i really wish i would have taken it when i first saw it at 14 but i never thought it would move like this. although i did think 14 was low considering mt. union's dominance of div 3. 9 points is one hell of a middle opportunity. suprised the books left themselves open to that prospect unless they have very good reason to believe it will be a total annihalation or a very close game with not much chance of it hitting in between. they usually know what their doing. i know whitewater has played mt union in the last 2 stagg bowls but can't remember the scores. anyone have a clue where last years boxscore can be found?

Mt Union beat Whitewater by 7 in 2005, and 19 in 2006.  Although, this might be the best Whitewater team to come to the table.  Their one loss was to a DII school, and they crushed the (then #2 DIII team in the country) Mary Hardin 41-14 and beat them again last week.  Mt Union has been here several times, but after the third matchup, UWW will be prepared for them....certainly a closer game than the line predicts.

I like to bet on college as much as the next guy but please... how in the world can you cap this game.  It is like betting on pre-season NFL or the Cactus league.  GL what ever you decide.

Who's posting a line other than 5dimes?  I'm on the Greek.  Any hope of getting it there?  
I'll be in Salem tomorrow for the game.  No doubt about Mount's excellence, but -23 seem outrageous.

actually, this is the third matchup of these two teams.  both teams have reached this bowl for the third year in a row.  Whitewater is only here, again, because they are a solid DIII team...one of the best.  There is no reason that a spread should be that high in a championship game where the teams know each other.
