The UNI Panthers host Missouri State in their regular season home finale. The Panthers have a share of the Missouri Valley lead and coach Mark Farley says while Missouri State has been inconsistent, the 3-5 Bears are dangerous.

Farley says they are also athletic and talented enough to line up and beat anybody. While the Panthers have put themselves in a good position Farley says there is plenty of work remaining. He says it would be easy to look ahead right now, but doing so would set them up for failure. Farley says if you look ahead three weeks from now, you might not see three weeks from now and be done with your season.

This is the third time that former UNI coach and quarterback Terry Allen has gone up against his alma mater and Farley says his familiarity with the program effects the game plan.
