ALLIANCE, OHIO – The Otterbein Cardinals fell to No. 2 ranked Mount Union, 42-0, Saturday at Mount Union Stadium.

The loss drops the Cardinals to 2-6 overall, 1-6 in the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC). Meanwhile, Mount Union remains the OAC leader at 7-0, 8-0 overall.

The two teams played to a scoreless tie in the first quarter. The Cardinals outgained the Purple Raiders 96-to-56 total yards, while the defense had two sacks and forced two Mount Union punts.

Junior running back Blair Skilliter sprinted for a 53-yard touchdown while junior Jeremy Murray scored on runs of four and one yard. Junior Matt Piloto connected with classmate Shannon Stewart to make the score 28-0 at the half.
