A pair of ranked teams collide in Seward this weekend when Concordia hosts Doane in a key Great Plains Conference game. Doane enters 6-0 and ranked sixth in the latest NAIA poll while 5-1 Concordia debuted this week at number 23.
“You want to be part of big games and you work all off season and this is what you train for is these opportunities and these types of games”, said Concordia coach Vance Winter. “Our guys are really excited. We know we are playing a very, very quality opponent but our guys are excited and we also get to play them at home.”
The Bulldogs are coming off a 41-38 overtime victory at Midland in a game they trailed 35-14.
Doane has dominated the series in recent years, winning each of the last nine meetings. Concordia’s last victory over the Tigers was back in 2005.
