No. 17 UMD football talks plans to topple once-beaten Wayne State
The now 17th ranked University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) football team hasn’t shown any major weaknesses this year, as their 5-0 record clearly indicates.
However things won’t be getting easier, as they travel to Nebraska this weekend to take on the 4-1 Wayne State College Wildcats for their homecoming. The Bulldogs, despite going into enemy territory, are confident they’ll return home with a win.
“They’ve got some dogs over there, I’ve been watching film. They got some good guys over there, but we’re going to go out there and play Bulldogs football. Get out here and get the practicing that we need and just come out there and just play our game,” DaShaun Ames said, a redshirt sophomore wide receiver.
“For us right now, if our guys aren’t motivated to be 5-0 and go have a chance to go play a very good football team, then we’re never going to be motivated. So our guys will be ready to go this weekend,” head coach Curt Wiese added.
The last time the Bulldogs started 5-0 was in 2018, a year where they went undefeated in the regular season. Kickoff from Wayne, Nebraska Saturday is set for 1 p.m..
