Catch heard 'round two brackets

The upset alert had gone out a few minutes earlier and Mount Union was trying to make it go away with a drive in the closing minutes of its home game against Baldwin-Wallace.

The Play of the Week is sponsored by the City of Salem, hosts of Stagg Bowl XXXIX.

Joe Tait and Harry Paidas on the call.

We solicit video of top plays from every Division III football program and this was our top clip. 

Week 10 Play of the Week finalists

  • Union senior wide receiver Justin Gallo turns a sure interception by Merchant Marine into a touchdown as the Dutchmen started to pull away in the second quarter of a 33-14 win. Follow the spot shadow. Watch
  • Susquehanna's Jalon Scott returns a punt almost all the way for a touchdown after picking up the ball, bouncing away from him. Watch.
  • Delaware Valley freshman quarterback Aaron Wilmer scores on a draw with seconds left in a win at Lycoming, keeping the Aggies in line for a high playoff seed. Watch

You can see all of the nominated plays on our Week 10 highlights playlist below, and even more top plays on the D3sports.com YouTube channel.
