The U.N.I. Panthers have been impressive early in the season and they hope to maintain momentum this weekend at home against Saint Francis of Pennsylvania. After nearly pulling off an upset at Iowa the Panthers opened their home schedule by pounding South Dakota 66-7.

U.N.I. coach Mark Farley says a letdown happens to everyone sooner or later, and they try to coach every day to avoid that. Senior quarterback Pat Grace has played well and passed for 455 yards in last week’s victory. Farley says Grace’s experience is showing. He says Grace might have gotten too aggressive in the offense in the previous year, but now he is operating the offense with more poise because of his experience.

Farley says Saint Francis played a good game against New Hampshire and got the shut out last week, so he says they will have to be prepared for them.
