..Mark: Yeah and we held them to 14 in the first half and we led 21-14 and that was very important going into the second half.

Rick: talk about how your team made great strides from the first week...in terms of improvement.

Mark: Well we made huge strides we didn't play that well at Iowa State but I felt like we really came together in the second week-special teams was much better our offense was productive and our defense was actually really good..

Rick Defense was good--they put 42 against Oregon the week before and your offense played really well in the critical times you needed them

Mark: Yes, Aaron Bailey started off the game with 150 yards rushing and Sawyer Kollmorgen really gave a burst of energy late in the fourth quarter and we scored twice there to win the game--both quarterbacks contributed and I thought the offense was good.

Rick : Good ole Panther one-two punch..and you'll get a 1-2 punch from the Big Sky Conference with Cal Poly which has done really well this year beating Montana and giving Arizona State a tough test on the road.

Mark: Yeah..that's the danger of this football team went into Montana--NDSU got beat by Montana--and they beat them..that caught our eyes and last week they were 21-21 with Arizona State with 8 minutes to play. This is a good football team because they control the game with their rushing attack..

Rick: And possession I know they like to run the football like you said...this week is a lot different for your defense..

Mark: this is totally different..we are trying to get ready for something they have been doing for 5 years..we are trying to get ready in 5 days--something unusual just like Georgia Tech and Georgia Southern , Navy--triple option football.

Rick Historically you have done well against that type of attack but its been awhile

Mark.. Yes this group of guys have never seen this type of offense so we are trying to put in defense in five days for guys who have never seen this type of offense before...

Rick And going on the road to do it a 9:30 central start..a little late for the guys...

Mark..Exactly we are flying we are going out there its a late start
