John Carroll ends Mount Union's championship streak 31-28

ALLIANCE, OHIO - For the first time in 25 years, the Ohio Athletic Conference has a champion other than Mount Union as the Purple Raiders fell today 31-28 to John Carroll, giving the Blue Streaks only their second league title in history, according to Deadspin.

The Associated Press reported that Anthony Moeglin threw a 24-yard, go-ahead touchdown pass to William Woods with 39 seconds left, lifting John Carroll to a 31-28 win over the Purple Raiders on Saturday.

The Division III powerhouse hadn't lost since Oct. 22, 2005, when a setback to Ohio Northern ended a 110-game winning streak that also lasted longer than a decade.

John Carroll (9-1, 9-0 Ohio Athletic Conference) earned an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III playoffs by winning its first conference title since 1994. Moeglin threw three TD passes without an interception.

Mount Union (9-1, 8-1) will likely get an at-large bid to the playoffs and a chance to defend the school's 12th national title.

And JCU took over the Twitterverse.
