SVSU football team hosts improving Hillsdale – Midland Daily News

After dropping its annual Axe Bowl game to rival Northwood University for the first time since 2010, Saginaw Valley State will look to regroup Saturday at home against Hillsdale in GLIAC football.

Kickoff is at 7 p.m. at Wickes Stadium.

A victory would lift the Cardinals (1-6 GLIAC, 1-7 overall) out of sole possession of last place in the GLIAC North, and into a tie with Hillsdale.

But that won’t be easy in light of the Chargers’ 38-24 upset of Tiffin last weekend.

“They got their offense going. They made a switch at quarterback, which seems to be working out,” said SVSU coach Jim Collins of the Chargers. “They’ve got a new guy playing running back and he had a big game against Tiffin. They were very explosive on offense and made a lot of big plays.”

Hillsdale is 2-5 in GLIAC play and 2-6 overall. What made the victory impressive is that Tiffin came into the game at 5-2 — which included a 40-0 win over SVSU in the second week of the season.
