La Crosse, WISCONSIN (WXOW) If there's one thing that's come to define Joel Dettwiler's short tenure so far as UW-La Crosse's head football coach it's that he's not afraid of challenges.
After beating the 6th ranked team in the nation on the road the Eagles heads to Marquette, Michigan to play Northern Michigan Thursday on just three days rest.
Not only that, the Eagles will make it a day trip leaving at 7 in the morning for the long bus ride and returning right after the game.
One more thing, Northern Michigan is a Division two school, too.
"I think we need to go out there and be mentally prepared. We went through such a long camp already that we're physically ready. It's just staying mentally focused day-in and day-out," said defensive back Ben Morrison.
"We just want to focus going 1-0 each week. Last week our goal was to beat North Central. This week our eyes are clear, they're on Northern Michigan. That's what we're looking to do," said linebacker Jack Leahy.
Thursday's kickoff is set for 6pm.
It's the first ever meeting between the two schools.
