The UNI Panthers will try to win at least a share of the Missouri Valley Conference this weekend with a visit to Indiana State. The Panthers are 6-1 in the conference after a 42-0 win over Missouri State, a game in which the defense yielded only 81 yards the entire game.
UNI coach Mark Farley says he thought Missouri State would have to have explosive plays off scrambles and create something on special teams. Farley says the Panther continue to get better each week as the regular season heads into it’s final two weeks.
Farley says that’s the difference in this team compared to last year. He says he thought the team was starting to hit its plateau when they played Missouri State last year, but this year Farley says the team is still growing.
