The dream of an undefeated season is no longer for the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) football team after a 28-18 loss against Wayne State College last Saturday.

For any team a loss is disappointing, but for head coach Curt Wiese there might be some good to come out of it for his team.

“Hoping last week was a lesson for us. You know, we went out on the road. We didn’t play super confident. We didn’t play with an edge in the loss. So we’re hoping that can trickle into our guys heads and mentality here throughout the regular season,” Wiese said.

The Bulldog defense wasn’t a problem for them this week, or this season so far, but rather it was some of the missed opportunities on offense that bogged them down on Saturday. Fifth year defensive back Marcus Glodowski says there’s no reason to panic, and that there’s a lot of season left.

“Just take it every week, week by week and treating every week the same. So we lost, it sucks. But we’re going to come here. We’re going to do what we do every week and get to work, and the sweatpants are out. So our boys are a little excited too,” Glodowski said, referring to the now chilly weather.

UMD is excited for their next opponent, the 0-6 University of Mary Marauders. Kickoff at Malosky Stadium is Saturday at Noon.
