UNI coach Mark Farley feels his Panthers are finally settling into a rhythm. After recording their first win of the season against Northern Colorado the Panthers get set for a visit from Tennessee Tech.
“We’re in the mode right now that you are playing 9 games in 9 weeks and your in a rhythm right now, there’s no more open days, there’s no more holidays, there’s no more trips to Hawaii, it’s get ready for the next week..This is the first official week that we are in a routine that will be sustained through November and December,” Farley says.
Tennessee Tech enters to game with a record of 1-2. Farley says they have dual quarterbacks with a wide open running spread offense that will run more than throw. It is a rare matchup for the Panthers against a team from the Ohio Valley Conference. “I think it’s a good thing playing inter-conference games, because it measures conferences as well…I think that’s important for our league instead of saying we are a good conference, we’ve got to prove we are a good conference,” Farley says.
UNI is 1-2.
