Nebraska Wesleyan takes to the road this Saturday (Sept. 22) as they travel to Crete, Neb., to face their arch rival Doane College in a GPAC Football rivalry game. Kickoff between the Prairie Wolves and Tigers is set for 1 pm at Simon Field.
NWU will look to even the all-time series with Doane as the Tigers now hold a one game 46-45-6 advantage in the series after winning last season. NWU has won seven of the last nine games between the two teams.
The Prairie Wolves (1-2, 0-2 GPAC) are going for their first conference victory of the 2012 season while the Tigers (2-1, 1-1 GPAC) will try to bounce back after their first loss of the season last week at Northwestern.
Doane is ranked #23 in this week's NAIA Top 25 poll and is the second of three straight ranked opponents that the Prairie Wolves will face.
