As usual, Mount Union is the team to beat in Ohio Athletic Conference

Austintown, OH – Mount Union, under the direction of fifth-year Head Coach Vince Kehres, was picked in both the preseason media and coaches’ polls to win the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) football title in 2017. The preseason polls were released today at the OAC Football Media Preview, held at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

Mount Union received 26 of 36 first place votes (354 points) in the media poll and eight of 10 first place votes (80 points) in the coaches’ poll. Head coaches do not vote for their own teams in the balloting.

The Purple Raiders return 14 starters and 52 letterwinners from 2016 and will look to contend for the OAC title and use the experience gained as the program made its 22nd straight trip to the national semifinals.

“We appreciate the respect that coaches and the media in the OAC have for our program,” commented fifth-year head coach Vince Kehres. “We also know that playing in this conference is a tremendous challenge week in and week out.” The Raiders play three of their first four games at home and six regular season home game starting September 2 against North Carolina Wesleyan.
