Hora, an honorable mention pick in 2011, posted a perfect 8-0 record and a 4.16 earned run average in 62.2 innings of work. The left-hander was second on the team with 51 strikeouts and tied for second with one complete game.

Mount Union Announces 2012 Football Schedule

Six regular season road games including a non-conference game against an in-region opponent for the first time in 11 years headline the 2012 Mount Union football schedule.

The Purple Raiders like the road as they have not lost a regular season road contest in 103 games dating back to 1991 and have won 63 consecutive regular season games dating back to 2005.

Mount Union starts the season on the road with a September 1 game at Franklin (Ind.). Franklin is the first NCAA North Region team to play the Raiders since Allegheny (Pa.) in 2001 -- meaning all 10 regular season games will be "in-region" games for NCAA Championship consideration.

The traditional bye week returns on September 8 as Mount Union has played 10-straight regular games each of the last two seasons.

The home and Ohio Athletic Conference opener is a night game at 7 pm on September 15 against Muskingum. Mount Union has won 58-straight home games dating back to the 2005 season.

Mount Union goes back on the road with another night game the following week with a 7 pm kickoff in Marietta on September 29 before returning home to host Ohio Northern on September 29.

October features road games at Wilmington (Oct. 6) and at Otterbein (Oct. 20) with home games against Capital for homecoming (Oct. 13) and hall of fame day against Heidelberg (Oct. 27).

Back-to-back trips to greater Cleveland close out the regular season with games at Baldwin Wallace on November 3 and John Carroll on November 10.

Season and single-game ticket information will be released later in the summer and all four home games are slated to be broadcast on television on WIVM/WIVN TV (Canton/New Philadelphia) and cable sports network SportsTime Ohio.

The Purple Raiders enter the 2012 season winners of 20 consecutive OAC championships dating back to 1992. Mount Union has played in each of the last seven Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowls (NCAA Division III National title game) and the Raiders have a record 10 NCAA Division III National Championships. This coming season also marks Larry Kehres' 27th as head coach at Mount Union and he enters the campaign with a 317-24-3 (.925) record.
