After pair of losses, Football preps for homecoming

Joe Rydel, Sports Editor

The Augsburg University football team will host their homecoming football game this Saturday, Oct. 13 at Edor Nelson Field. The Auggies will play host to the Carleton Knights.

   After what has proven to be a difficult schedule as of late, including back-to-back games against nationally ranked opponents, the Auggies are looking to bounce back into the win column on Saturday.

   Players to watch this week include wide receiver Nick Heenie and quarterback Quentin Lake. Heenie is having his best offensive year statistically, proving to be a favorite target for Lake in the red zone.

    As always, be sure to check out all Homecoming events happening on Saturday in Murphy Park. There will be food, games and prizes for all. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m.
