Another week and another top ten opponent for Northern Iowa. After falling at second ranked North Dakota State the Panthers return home to host sixth ranked South Dakota. The Coyotes are 7-1 overall and tied for second place in the Missouri Valley.
That’s Panther coach Mark Farley who says South Dakota’s fast break style of offense is averaging nearly 530 yards per game.
Farley says the Coyotes present a big challenge for the Panther defense.
Despite a 4-4 record Farley says the Panthers still control their own playoff destiny. UNI’s schedule is ranked as the toughest in all of FCS.
