With three of their last four games at home an unbeaten season is possible for top ranked UNI but the Panthers have a difficult test when they host a Youngstown State team that needs a win. Panther coach Mark Farley says Youngstown State will play with a lot of fire as they have a lot to play with and need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive.
After running at will against Western Illinois last week the Panther offense will need another good effort. Farley says Youngstown State will be very aggressive on defense and will come after the quarterback with everything they have.
This would be a big win for Youngstown State, as Farley says they can go to the "top of the pile" with a win. UNI is 7-0.
