Mount Union Off to Hot Start

 

 The Mount Union (Ohio) Purple Raiders are off to another strong start in 2015, winning their first three games by a combined score of 164-0. They’re not alone in the pursuit of top dog Wisconsin-Whitewater, though, as Mary Hardin-Baylor (Texas), Linfield (Ore.) and Wesley (Del.) round out the Top 5 with their own impressive starts. 

After a weekend that saw 10 teams in the Poll on a bye-week, this weekend will see action across the board, with a couple of top matchups. The games are headlined by Wisconsin-Whitewater hosting No. 12 Wisconsin-Platteville, while No. 13 Washington & Jefferson (Pa.) will travel to Kentucky to face No. 14 Thomas More in an important early-season President’s Athletic Conference game.
