It is the first and only night game of the season for Nebraska Wesleyan as kickoff between the Prairie Wolves and Cougars is set for 6 p.m., at the Sanford Sports Complex (Bob Young Field) in Sioux Falls, S.D.
NWU got its first victory of the season last week with a 21-0 shutout over Dordt to improve to 1-3 on the year. The top-ranked Cougars are 4-0 after knocking of then #22 Hastings College, 34-10 last Saturday.
Sioux Falls has defeated NWU ten straight times dating back to the 1999 season. The Cougars are riding the longest winning streak in all of college football at 33 consecutive victories. They have won 87 of their last 88 GPAC games. The strong Prairie Wolves defense, which has scored four touchdowns this season, will attempt to slow down the high-powered Cougar offense.
