With more here's News8's Charlie Clifford
After an unplanned bye week last Friday night.
3-1 West Salem is back on the field tonight visiting
The other trio of 3-1 MVC teams are all on their own
tonight -- so this is an important game for both side.
We are joined by Panthers head coach Justin Jehn.
Coach -- Last week Aquinas forefits, your team gets
a week to rest up.
Does that help or hurt your team going into this tough
road test at Logan?
Well, you know we certainly at this point in the season,
you have a few nicks and injuries.
It was good to get healthier in that regard.
We would have liked to play, but we turn are eyes
to Logan this week and we had a chance to focus in
Your leaning on this
combination of juniors with quarterback
Ryan Bernie and running back Gabe Lamon.
Are you surprised with how well this offense has played?
You know we knew as with them as sophomores but we
did not get a chance to see them a lot.
Behind our solid offensive line, they've been able
to do those things.
I would not say we are surprised, we are certainly
pleased with how they have progessed so far this season.
and we are looking for big things in the last two
weeks from them.
On paper, you have the toughest path to atleast a
piece of the MVC Title.
The last 3 games: Logan, Sparta and Onalaska.
How do you mix it up with these teams and does your
team believe you can take atleast a piece of the MVC
How do you outlast these teams?
We've talked about it all year.
This is the spot we want to be in.
Certainly, you are a respectable program when you
like you are playing in big football games.
and we are now.
It is good to be in that spot and be in the conversation
We'll see where things end up in the end.
Justin appreciate the time tonight.
Good Luck at Logan.
Gregg back to you.
UW-La Crosse head coach Mike Schmidt is hoping Eagles
football can be a part of your Oktoberfest weekend
