Wayne State University Warriors scouting report

2010 Record: 3-1 Overall, 2-1 GLIAC 2009 Record: 6-5 Overall, 5-5 GLIAC

Last game: W 17-7 vs Ohio Dominican

Players to watch: Wayne State: junior Josh Renel RB, freshman Toney Davis RB, junior Nick Thomas LB, junior Joe Long OT NMU: junior Nathan Linsmeier RT, senior Ricky Neaves FS, junior Rockne Belmonte PK, senior Eric Wells LB

Key matchup: 2010 Wildcats vs. 2009 Wildcats. So far in this 2010 season, the Warriors seemed to steal more than a few pages from NMU’s 2009 playbook. Wayne State has a pair of talented runningbacks, an improved defense that swarms toward the ball carrier and play very well at home. However, just like last year’s Wildcats, Wayne State has yet to play a quality opponent besides their 24-7 road loss to Michigan Tech.

Key stat: It will be a tough game for either team to move the ball, as Northern Michigan and Wayne State are first and second respectively in total defense for the GLIAC and ninth and 15th nationally.

Prediction: The ’Cats will be having déjà vu this week, as they will play in Wayne State’s homecoming this week. However, the results will not turn out well for the home team, as NMU will take the game 27-20.
