The Lunas, who won the first game 28-7 on Sept. 13, haven't beaten the Bears twice in a season since 2001 when they won a league title game 26-14 to take two of three from Baldwin. A Bears win would set up the third shared overall MIL title between these two since 2009 - the two teams have combined to win every league crown since 2001.
