Everytime Ohio Athletic Conference rivals Otterbein and Ohio Northern play each other, it is a high-scoring affair to the end.

Last weekend at Ada, Ohio, located in the Lima area, Ohio Northern won in overtime, 34-33.

Quarterback Austin Schlosser led the Cardinals attack with 266 total yards, but he missed a two-point conversion in overtime  which cost Otterbein in the OAC opener for both teams.

Tyler Rue put the Polar Bears ahead in overtime with an 8-yard touchdown run.

After Brock Burzanko’s 7-yard TD reception, the Cardinals opted to go for the win, but Schlosser’s pass to Trey Fairchild on the two-point try was incomplete.

Ohio Northern is 2-0, 1-0 in the OAC; Otterbein is 1-1, 0-1 in the OAC.

The Cardinals return to Westerville next Saturday at 2 p.m. as they host the Heidelberg Student Princes at Memorial Stadium.

The seventh-ranked team in the country, the Wittenberg University Tigers football team has been selected to play in the NCAA Division III Tournament for the 14th time in school history.

The Tigers open their drive for a third national title since the start of the tournament in 1973 with a first round game at Ohio Northern University this Saturday at 12 noon in Ada, Ohio.

The Tigers, who won the North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) for the 10th time since joining the league in 1989, completed a perfect regular season with a 22-17 win at Wooster last Saturday, to reach the national playoffs for the second straight season. Wittenberg advanced to the national quarterfinals in 2009 before losing to eventual national champion Wisconsin-Whitewater.

Wittenberg won the inaugural NCAA Division III Tournament in 1973, added a second title in 1975 and were national runner-ups in 1978 and 1979. Wittenberg is the NCAA Division III program with the most wins in history. The Tigers have a 20-11 overall record in the tournament.

Ohio Northern finished second as was predicted in the preseason media and coaches poll in the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) with records of 9-1 overall, 8-1 in the league, losing only to league champion Mt. Union, 27-0.

The winner of the first round game between fourth-seeded Ohio Northern and fifth-seeded Wittenberg will advance to face the winner of the game between first-seeded North Central University and eighth-seeded Benedictine University. The game will be played at the home field of the highest remaining seed.
