The Carroll College football team and Alaska’s Noah McWilliams missed an opportunity to make NAIA history after losing the national championship game 24-20 to Saint Xavier over the weekend in Rome, Ga.

The defeat denied the Saints from matching the NAIA record of seven championships held by Texas A&I.

McWilliams, of Homer High fame, started at linebacker and record 3 tackles, including one for a loss.

Carroll College of Montana finished the season 13-2.

McWilliams helped the Saints win the NAIA title in 2010.
