Hillsdale College Release
Sept. 9, 2009 – Coming off a well-played, dramatic victory over Michigan Tech inits home opener last week, the Hillsdale College football team knows it can’t take anything for granted in its week 3 matchup with the Northwood University Timberwolves.
The two teams will meet on the Hantz Stadium grass for the first time in nearly four years starting at noon Saturday. Andy Brown and Jim Eckhardt from WCSR 92.1-FM will have the radio call and all the action live from Midland. Live stats and webcasting of the game will also be available.
Hillsdale comes into the game with a 2-0 record, having scored 37 points in each of its first two games. While the Chargers’ point total has been the same in the first two games, the margin of victory has been very different. Hillsdale wiped out St. Joseph’s College 37-7 in the season opener, shutting out the Pumas over the game’s final 50 minutes.
But last week, Hillsdale needed to recover an onsides kick in the game’s final minute to preserve a 37-35 win over a very tough Michigan Tech team. The win was not only significant because of the quality of opponent, but was the 100th in the head coaching career of Keith Otterbein. This week, Coach Otterbein and his troops travel to a stadium where they’ve had very little success over the years.
