Cougars' football season cut short
Due to wet heavy snow and unplayable field conditions, the football game scheduled for Satruday between the University of Minnesota, Morris and Crown was cancelled.
The coaches decided that the game would not be made up, as snow was expected to continue. The NCAA playoffs begin this weekend and an NCAA waiver would have been requied to play a game after Sunday.
The Cougars and Storm each wrap up the season with idential 4-2 Upper MIdwest Athletic Conference records, leaving them in a second place tie behind Greenville, who has locked up the UMAC title with an unbeaten league record.
UMM finshed the season with a 5-4 overall mark, tying for the second best season since 1989, behind only the Cougars' 7-3 tally in the conference championship season of 2006.
The Cougars logged UMAC wins over MacMurray, Wesminster, Eureka, and Northwestern, as well as a non-conference win over Trinity Bible in the home and season finale on Nov. 2
