GOOD EVENING, I'M RICK COLEMAN.

here with UNI head coach Mark Farley the Panthers coming off a tough loss on the road to a very tough team in North Dakota State but a lot of positives out of threat game for your team..

Mark..there was we rushed the ball very well and we played great defense--I knew it was going to be a great football game and the home field advantage turned out to be the difference..

Rick..you talk about rushing the football very well on the season North Dakota state had only given up 160 total yards on the ground to four teams--- you ran for nearly 300 against them

Mark: Well we did had a good plan I thought the execution against them was excellent, O-Line did good.. Bailey got away a couple of times and Sawyer played well too..

Rick You don't believe in moral victories--but you know you have a good football team now..

Mark: I think there is such an upside our team is growing and getting better while a lot of other teams are leveling off --we need to continue to grow..

Rick: Homecoming week -UNI faces Western Illinois..another very good team.

Mark: In this league they are all top 25 teams..we meet another one this week..but we are at home

Rick : Leathernecks come in this week with a great quarterback Trenton Norvell who has thrown for 300 yards in back to back games and a great running back in Nikko Watson..how do you slow down that attack?

Mark.. the difference is they come in hot with two straight wins and we have two tough losses we must seize the momentum at home..

Rick: It's homecoming week--a lot of excitement--but a lot of distractions

Mark: its a true homecoming for us because we have been on the road for weeks since early September--but we can catch our breath a little bit..
