Coyote Defense Looks For Big Effort At Weber State
22nd Ranked Coyotes At 11th Ranked Wildcats Saturday
VERMILLION, S.D. — One of the biggest early games in the FCS could have big postseason implications later in the season as the 22nd ranked Coyotes visit 11th ranked Weber State.
The last time these two met in 2016 it was one for the ages at the Dakota Dome when USD rallied from 21 down to win 52-49 in double overtime.
A lot has changed in the two years since with both teams making the FCS Playoffs a year ago, making this a key resume builder for both teams this year. Most notably since that shootout in 2016, the Wildcats have become one of the top defensive teams in the country.
That means the Coyotes defense will need to be up to matching their counterparts, and they say practicing against their own high octane offense every day will help them do that.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7 PM.
