Upper Iowa Ready For Road Test At Northern State [Audio]
The Upper Iowa Peacocks are on the road for their week three game, facing the Wolves of Northern State on Saturday (Sept. 16, 2017). Kick-off is set for 1 p.m. from Swisher Field in Aberdeen, S.D.
The Peacocks (1-1) are coming off a 33-21 loss to No. 21 Minnesota-Duluth in their home opener last week, while Northern State (1-1) was held to two rushing yards in a 37-7 by No. 9 Sioux Falls on the road.
Upper Iowa is 4-2 all-time against the Wolves and is seeking its fifth-straight win in the series. The Peacocks played Northern State four times from 2006-09, but the teams have met only twice in the last seven seasons. Upper Iowa won the most-recent meeting, 17-6, in the 2015 season-opener in Fayette.
