The Nebraska Wesleyan Prairie Wolves host Briar Cliff this Saturday. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. from Abel Stadium. Nebraska Wesleyan is 2-4 on the season while Briar Cliff is 2-5.
NWU wide receiver Mike Colgrove caught two touchdown passes in the last game for NWU, marking the first time a NWU receiver has caught two touchdown passes since 2006. Colgrove has become the big-play receiver as he had three catches of +25 yards in the last game.
NWU had their best overall performance two weeks ago in the upset over #25 Dakota Wesleyan two weeks ago. They had a bye week last Saturday to heal up some injuries. The Prairie Wolves defense will be put to the test against one of the top passing attacks in the GPAC in Briar Cliff. NWU has returned four interceptions for TDs this year, and the Briar Cliff quarterback has thrown 13 interceptions this season so the Prairie Wolves will look to capitalize on a big turnover.
