Area college preview

The Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association has been dominated by two football programs for more than two decades — Pittsburg State and Northwest Missouri State — and that doesn’t figure to change in 2012. The programs have combined to win or share all but two conference championships since 1989, and the Gorillas’ NCAA Division II title last season was the fifth between them (the Bearcats have won three) in that span.
