December 12, 2017

Stagg BowlSALEM, Virginia – The University of Mount Union Purple Raider football team is seeking its 13th Division III National Championship against the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor on Friday, December 15 at 7 p.m. in the 2017 Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl.

There will be a number of fans traveling down for the game at Salem Stadium in Salem, Virginia, as this will be the final year the game is hosted in Salem. For those traveling down to Virginia, there are changes to the location for the traditional Mount Union festivities. 

Due to lodging and accommodations changes mandated by the organizers of the Stagg Bowl, the post-game gathering will now be held next door at the Holiday Inn Valley View, located at 3315 Ordway Dr., Roanoke, VA 24017. Because of this conflict, Mount Union fans are being asked to relocate hotels from the Sheraton Roanoke located on Hershberger Road to another nearby hotel.

Some of the nearby hotel options include:

  • Courtyard by Marriott Roanoke Airport, 3301 Ordway Dr. NW, Roanoke, VA 24017
  • Hyatt Place Roanoke Airport/Valley View Mall, 5040 Valley View Blvd. NW, Roanoke, VA 24012

All of the options listed above are within one mile of the Sheraton Roanoke, though there are a number of other options available to Mount Union fans in the area.

Ticket information can be found at or by calling (330) 823-6093. Fans interested in traveling on the bus with the Office of Alumni Engagement can contact the office at or (330) 823-2030.
