Wisconsin-Whitewater beats Linfield 20-14 in D-III semis, headed to Stagg Bowl

Posted: Updated:
 WHITEWATER, Wis. (AP) -- Dennis Moore scored on a 33-yard run with five minutes remaining to give defending champion Wisconsin-Whitewater a 20-14 victory over Linfield on Saturday in the Division III semifinals.

   Top-ranked Whitewater (14-0), which has won five of the last seven national titles, will face No. 3 Mount Union (14-0) next Friday night in the Stagg Bowl in Salem, Va. Mount Union, which lost to Whitewater in last year's final, advanced with a 70-21 rout of fourth-ranked Wesley.

   The victory gives Whitewater coach Lance Leipold another shot at a championship in his final game before he takes over at the University of Buffalo. Leipold is 108-6 at Whitewater, including 33-1 in the playoffs.

   Moore's run capped a nine-play, 80-yard go-ahead drive after Linfield had rallied from a 14-0 deficit to tie it 14-14.
