Hillsdale College Release
September 5, 2007 – The new season couldn’t have gotten off to a much better start for the Hillsdale College football team. Now, it will look to continue that start this weekend on its longest road trip of the season.
The Chargers will make the trek to Marquette to face the Northern Michigan University Wildcats at 4 p.m. Saturday in the second game of the 2007 season for each team. The game will be played at the Superior Dome, on the campus of Northern Michigan University.
The Chargers come into the game with a 1-0 record, fresh off one of the most lopsided victories in its 116-year history of football. Hillsdale defeated Gannon University 59-3 on Sept. 1, the biggest margin of victory in a game for Hillsdale since 1968. The 59 points scored by the Chargers are the most since a 68-25 win over Northwood in the 1968 season.
Northern Michigan made an even longer trip south than the northern trip Hillsdale faces this week, in the first week of the season. The Wildcats hung tough, but lost at the University of Indianapolis, 24-22 last Saturday. NMU scored a late touchdown, and went for the game-tying two-point conversion, but were not able to convert, giving the Greyhounds a tight victory.
