Beyond MoCo: Stagg Bowl (D-III Football Championship) To Be Played in Maryland for First Time

The 2022 NCAA Division III Football Championship Game, more commonly referred to as the 2022 Stagg Bowl or Stagg Bowl XLIX, is a postseason college football game that is scheduled to be played on December 16, 2022, at Navy–Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Maryland. This is the first time the game will be played in Maryland. It will determine a national champion in NCAA Division III for the 2022 season. The contest is scheduld to begin at 7:00 p.m. EST, and will air on ESPNU. The game will feature the two finalists of the 32-team single elimination playoff bracket- Mount Union (Alliance, Ohio) and North Central College (Naperville, Illinois).

No. 2 Mount Union advanced to the 2022 Stagg Bowl following a 34-31 win over No. 12 Wartburg in the NCAA Semifinals last Saturday at Kehres Stadium. North Central College finished as runners-up in the 2021 Stagg Bowl, and won the title in 2019, with the 2020 Stagg Bowl being canceled due to COVID-19. Mount Union and North Central College are two of just six teams to win the D-III national title in the past 20 seasons. Mount Union has the most D-III Championships in history, having won a total of 11 (1993, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2012). The championship game is named after Amos Alonzo Stagg. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as both a college football player and coach in 1951.
