The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) football team is looking for a bounce-back game against Upper Iowa this week after falling short in Saturday’s road opener at MSU-Mankato.

UMD’s offense only registered 61 passing yards in the 17-10 loss. Due to the injury of one of their more prominent targets.

“Losing Armani Carmickle early in the game, you know, it hurt us. He becomes a big factor for us with a downfield presence. That being taken away against a team like Mankato, we need to be able to grind out a win, and we weren’t able to do that. This is a great week for us to be able to bounce back, understanding what’s on the line for us from here on out is winning one week at a time,” said head coach Curt Wiese.

Defensively however UMD played well enough to lead the game in tackles 55-49.

Senior Marcus Glodowski was a big factor in the game tallying nine tackles, six of which were for loss.

“We’re just looking at get some takeaways. That’s the one thing we didn’t do last week, looking to take the ball away, whether that’s interceptions or strip sacks or fumbles. That’s definitely an area we got to improve. If our offense struggles, we got to be there for them and make up for it,” said Glodowski.

The Bulldogs will be back at home against Upper Iowa this Saturday at 6:00 p.m. for their Military Appreciation Night.
