A tough stretch of the schedule continues for the Peru State football team. Off to a 3-1 start and receiving votes in the latest NAIA Poll the Bobcats host 22nd ranked MidAmerica Nazarene in Heart of America Conference action. Senior quarterback Travis Carnahan leads a Peru State triple option attack that is averaging 378 yards per game.
“Travis is a competitor and he is physically and mentally tough”, said Peru State coach Steve Schneider. “He makes good decisions and gets the ball where it needs to go in our option attack.”
Peru State leads the Heart of America Conference in total defense by giving up only 286 yards per game but Schneider says that unit will be tested on Saturday.
“Defensively is actually the strength of our football team”, added Schneider. “MidAmerica is pretty versatile and has good balance as well as a big play capability.”
