After two straight blowout victories the schedule now becomes much for difficult for UNI. Ranked 12th in 1-AA the Panthers visit an Iowa team that will be looking to bounce back from a loss at Iowa State. Coach Mark Farley says they’re “up against a humongous task.” Farley says while it is a tough challenge it is also a big opportunity for his team. He says they’re going into a great college atmosphere, what college football is all about.”Quarterback Eric Sanders is off to a quick start for the Panthers. The sophomore has completed more than 80-percent of his passes and has six touchdown strikes after two games. Farley says Sanders is finding the open receiver and the receivers are making the catches for him. Farley says they haven’t played the competition they’ll see against Iowa and in the conference, but he says thus far Sanders has done a good job. Terrance Freeney has led a trio of running backs that Farley says has bolstered the run game. Farley says Freeney was healthy for the first time this season and got off to a good start. He says David Horn is doing a good job too and Cory Lewis is also ready if something happens to the first two.
