Northwest Missouri St Crowned Kings of D2

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Long viewed as one of the most dominant football programs in Division II, Northwest Missouri State can lay claim to that honor now.
Northwest Missouri State pulled away in the second half to beat North Alabama, 29-3, in a virtual snow-globe environment Saturday night at Children’s Mercy Park.
The championship is the second in a row for Northwest and the third in four years under coach Adam Dorrel. Overall, the trophy is the sixth for Northwest and is now the most in Division II history — breaking a tie with North Dakota State.
Before the game ended, injured wide receiver Shawn Bane Jr. drew the No. 6 in the snow that covered the playing field.
Northwest posted 15-0 records in each of its past three titles and had little issues in beating North Alabama, the second-most successful Division II programs in terms of postseason wins.
More than 4,500 fans braved temperatures that were 13 degrees at the 3 p.m kickoff and with a wind chill of minus 4.
