Heidelberg Announces 2012 Football Schedule

More news about: Heidelberg

TIFFIN, Ohio—Heidelberg University head football coach Mike Hallett has unveiled the schedule for the upcoming 2012 season, released today. The Berg will again host five games at Mayer Field and play nine Ohio Athletic Conference opponents.

The Student Princes will open the 2012 campaign with three straight games away from Tiffin, opening the season on Sept. 1 at Alma (Mich.) College, the third straight year Heidelberg will open the season against the Scots.

Following an open date, the Berg will open the OAC portion of its schedule at Ohio Northern University on Sept. 15 in the second annual Bendekovic Bowl and at Wilmington College on Sept. 22.

The Bendekovic Bowl, an annual trophy game between Heidelberg and ONU established last season by Hallett and ONU head coach Dean Paul, pays tribute to the late Ronnie and Jason Bendekovic, two great men who had immeasurable impact at both schools as coaches.

Heidelberg will close the first month of the season by hosting Marietta College in its home opener on Sept. 29.

The Student Princes open October at Capital University on Oct. 6 before playing two straight games at home, against Otterbein University in the 21st Rhine River Classic on Homecoming and Fellows' Day on Oct. 13 and Muskingum University on Oct. 20. The Berg's last away contest will take place at the University of Mount Union on Oct. 27.

November will close the season at home for the Student Princes, as they host John Carroll University on Nov. 3 and Baldwin-Wallace College on Nov. 10. B-W will by then be known as Baldwin Wallace University.

Last season, Hallett, who was OhioCollegeFootball.com's Division III coach of the year and D3football.com North Region coach of the year, led the Berg to an 8-2 overall record—the school's best mark in 18 seasons—and tied for second place in the OAC at 7-2, behind Mount Union, which advanced to the NCAA Division III national championship game.

Heidelberg posted identical 4-1 records at home and on the road in 2011. The Tri-Color was 2-1 in September, 4-1 in October and 2-0 in November.
