Vince Kehres has been a head coach for 30 games in his career, and part of the staff at Mount Union for 10 of its 11 national championships.
Late in the first half, after the Warhawks' Brady Grayvold intercepted Kevin Burke's pass and returned it for a touchdown, giving the Warhawks a 27-14 lead, Kehres opted to try to score with under a minute left.
Matt Behrendt threw for 365 yards and four touchdowns and Wisconsin-Whitewater (15-0) extended its winning streak to 32 games, the longest in the nation, and won its second straight national title.
Burke was 25 of 47 for 323 yards and three touchdowns, but after arriving at his final college game with 49 touchdown passes and just five interceptions, the Warhawks picked him off four times.
After falling behind, Behrendt hit Moore with a screen pass, and Moore found his blockers, cut back across the field and took it 75 yards for a touchdown, restoring the Warhawks lead to 37-31.
There the Whitewater defense dug in, chasing Burke out of bounds on a third-and-6, and Edward Ruhnke kicked a 29-yard field goal.
The two new teammates are South Florida natives who grew up Marlins fans, and they joined their favorite team as a result of deals last week.
The Marlins also acquired Dee Gordon, a Central Florida native who attended games in Miami as a youngster when his father, former major leaguer Tom Gordon, pitched against the Marlins.
Shortly after the session disbanded, the Marlins' busy front office added two more players, acquiring infielder Martin Prado and right-handed pitcher David Phelps from the New York Yankees for right-handed pitcher Nathan Eovaldi, first-baseman Garrett Jones and minor league right-handed pitcher Domingo German.
Several hours later, they were at it again, shipping NL comeback player of the year, third baseman Casey McGehee, to San Francisco for a pair of right-handed minor league pitchers, Kendry Flores and Luis Castillo.
Gordon, a leadoff hitter and All-Star second baseman, was obtained in a seven-player trade with the Dodgers.
Several people familiar with the deal say Major League Baseball and its umpires have reached agreement on a five-year labor contract.
The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because both sides still need to ratify the deal next month.
BASEBALLCOMMISSIONER'S OFFICE — Named outgoing commissioner Bud Selig commissioner emeritus, effective Jan. 25.
American LeagueBALTIMORE ORIOLES — Agreed to terms with LHP Wesley Wright on a one-year contract. Named Scott Coolbaugh hitting coach.
CLEVELAND INDIANS — Assigned RHP Bryan Price outright to Columbus (IL).
DETROIT TIGERS — Assigned RHP Melvin Mercedes outright to Toledo (IL).
There to film it all was an Egyptian television presenter, who claims she actually triggered the raid by tipping off police about alleged homosexual activity in the bathhouse.
Activists say that by cracking down on gays, the government of President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi aims to boost its credentials as a protector of morals and religious values in a competition with its rival, the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists.
Around 150 men this year have been arrested or are on trial in connection with homosexuality, the highest number in more than a decade, said Scott Long, an American activist and researcher on gay rights.
The men arrested in the bath, Long said, so far have been unable to hire lawyers since private lawyers refuse such cases and even rights groups are keeping a distance since they already fear being targeted by the government.
In Egypt — where both the Muslim majority and Christian minority are deeply conservative — homosexuality is strongly taboo, and a gay rights movement has never really been able to gain any traction.
Amid the pro-democracy atmosphere sparked by the 2011 uprising that ousted autocrat Hosni Mubarak, many gays felt cautious optimism, though they feared the rise of Islamists.
Last month, an Egyptian court sentenced eight men to three years in prison on charges of "inciting debauchery" after they appeared in a video taken during a party on a Nile boat in which they appeared to exchange rings in what prosecutors alleged was a same-sex wedding.
After coming under heavy criticism, el-Iraqi denied that homosexuality was the target of her program, saying on her Facebook page on Thursday that it meant to address "sex trafficking in a public place" and that her and the police's actions "were taken to prevent a crime that even Western countries prohibit by law."
