Northland #2 seed in MCAC Football Playoffs.

Northland is set to face of against North Dakota School of Science on Sunday, October 29th at 1:30 PM at Swenson Field in Thief River Falls, MN.

Northland is averaging 450.9 yards a game on offense, over 360 of which comes in the air. NDSCS will look to improve on their third-down conversion rate against Northland in their second match-up, as they were able to convert only four of 11 offensive third downs in the first encounter between the teams. The Wildcats will need to keep the nation's leading passing quarterback, Shannon Patrick, off the field as much as possible to stymie the Pioneers. NDSCS quarterback Malik Gaillard is third in passing touchdowns in the MCAC with 17 scoring throws, behind only Patrick and Minnesota West signal caller Peyton Kendrick. Not surprisingly, both squads have receivers in the top five in receiving touchdowns, with Malik Willams second at 11 and Kyle Fowlkeswith 7, good for fourth in the MCAC.

Admission for the game is $6 for Adults and $4 for Students.
