BELTON – Mary Hardin-Baylor is no longer the 2016 NCAA Division III football national champion.

The NCAA released its decision today stemming from UMHB’s self-reporting of violations during the 2016 and ’17 seasons, and the national governing body for college athletics ruled that UMHB must vacate its record from both seasons – including the Crusaders’ victory in the 2016 Stagg Bowl.
