The St. Ambrose football team has moved into the nation’s top ten and gets set to host St. Francis of Indiana in an early season showdown. The Fighting Bees are 2-0 and ranked ninth in the latest N-A-I-A poll and big plays on defense have been a major factor. The St. Ambrose defense has generated 12 turnovers in the first two games.
Coach Mike Magistrelli says they’ve done a good job of forcing turnovers and they hope to continue that trend. He says the defense is doing a good job up front and getting pressure on the quarterback. This weekend St. Ambrose will host fourth ranked Saint Francis of Indiana.
Magistrelli says they are one of the best teams you face at this level, but says they look forward to the challenge. They played a year ago and says his team played a poor game and got embarrassed and the team is looking forward to having a better showing.
