GOOD EVENING, I'M RICK COLEMAN,

Here with UNI Head Football coach Mark Farley--the Panthers coming off their third win in a row a 59-13 victory over Indiana State a very complete victory...

Mark Farley: We did we came out well on defense --scored every time on offense and special teams was very effective..

Rick: Offense scoring 38 points in the first half--like a train moving down the tracks

Mark: It was our defense gave them a lot of short fields--but they got the ball in the endzone--once we got things going momentum took over..

Rick : Aaron Bailey scoring five touchdowns --he is seeming to get the rhythm of that offense..

Mark: He is . The more he plays the more confident he gets and the better people play around him...

Rick: And the past three or four weeks the defense has been playing lights out---there seems to be great symmetry from the front end to the back end...

Mark : the front seven has been playing very well ..particularly those four defensive lineman and the secondary has become more aggressive and effective and ultimately it has come together...

Rick: I know one thing you always said you like to score points on defense and you got plenty of them last Saturday..

Mark: Yes I did you can really raise the bar with defense and excitement with your fans especially at home--they feed off defense--and when you get the fans into it ultimately it helps the offense too..

Rick : Team is playing with a lot of confidence now ..I would not call it a trap game but going to Missouri State a team that is struggling right now--its important the panthers keep playing at a high level..

Mark: We do this is our last road trip--we have to take what we have learned and get better this week.. that's the key can we get better this week .if we do we will have a good day if we don't anything is possible--so we have really isolated some things to work on.

Rick: Everything is really out there for you to accomplish if you can get thru the next two weeks...

Mark: It is on our table --it's ours to take --we have to do the job..focus on the play and the moment and do your job--don't look past it...

Rick. UNI..Missouri State from Springfield, Missouri ---you have had a lot of success in the past down there... you want to keep it..

Mark: New coaching staff--senior day down there so they have a lot of things going on we have had success down there but its a new team they are doing different things and so are we ..we have momentum s o hopefully that helps

Good Luck down there coach 2 o'clock Springfield Missouri UNI versus Missouri State ,
