This Friday evening on ESPNU, the D3 football title will be decided when Mary Hardin-Baylor and Mount Union square off. The schools have accounted for the past three championships, and last season the Purple Raiders took home the hardware over the Crusaders after grinding out a 12-0 victory. But before the 2018 championship takes place, let's take a look back at this season and vote on the D3 defensive player of the year.
The poll is open until this Friday at 1 p.m. Eastern/10 a.m. Pacific Time, so make your selection today and feel free to share with friends so they can place their vote as well. We'll tweet out the winner over the weekend.
