Rick Coleman   "Good Evening I am Rick Coleman with the head coach of the Northern Iowa Panthers Mark Farley after the big 45-38 victory over Cal Poly at the UNI-Dome. And coach it was a game that tested your resolve in so many ways--your team's resolve--mental toughness--especially in overtime after giving up a late touchdown in that game."

Mark Farley    "Well actually looking back on it it was great for this football team. I though we didn't play well early with the two intercepts--came back and played very well and then let it slip away but had the resolve in the overtime to really play excellent football."

Rick   "Well talk about those stretches where you did find your team playing well..."

Mark   " Well what I liked about it was I thought our offense was really moving the chains--we were throwing the football we were a balanced attack we were throwing the football and then on defense I thought we did a good job on the front seven of stopping the football we did give up some passes.."

Rick   "Talk about that tough stand in overtime..."

Mark    "Well what was great about the overtime was the crowd first...the 12th man was a huge factor because they go two penalties on the first two plays without snapping the football because the noise was so loud and after that two plays for losses and after that the play to win it."

Rick   "Talk about this week you are going to Southern Utah a very tough place to play because this is their first home game and they are going to be jacked because they are coming off a huge win 51-14 on the road at Stephen F. Austin showed a great deal of offensive explosion tough test this week..."

Mark   "It is a tough test reading about that win they did go to Stephen F. Austin --they made comparisons to the quarterback to Lamar Jackson out of Louisville in terms of his elusiveness and ability to throwing the ball well and we will be tested that way and its their first home game so there will be excitement."

Rick   "Well their quarterback as you said a very athletic guy--moving the chains 414 yards passing last week and four touchdowns no interceptions after giving up a couple against Oregon and then their freshman receiver has come big.."

Mark  "They have done very well they struggled at Oregon but they came back last week and played excellent football and they scored 24 against Oregon so we need to go out there we have not played that well in coverage aspect of it so we need to get better with our planning and this is a great test for us."

Rick  "And it is a great test going on the road and its a night game seven o'clock at night so their fans will have all day to get ready.. "

Mark  "We actually been out there in 2015 its a great place to play a great environment and a great area I expect a big crowd out there and we just need to go out and do our job."

Rick "Southern Utah seven o'clock out there the Panthers looking for victory number with Head coach Mark Farley--Good Luck Coach."

Mark "Thank you..."
