UW-L tries to get hot in the red zone

Posted: Updated:

The Eagles will try to shake a three-game slide and sprinting out to a 5-0 start.
It won't be easy.
UW-La Crosse travels to 5th-ranked Oshkosh Saturday.

If the Eagles are to come up with an upset they'll need to improve their red zone offense.
Their high-powered offense has struggled inside the 20 yard line in recent weeks.

Drives have stalled or they've turned it over.

As a result, UW-L has the second-worst red zone offense in the league.

"It's been a huge emphasis.  We've done some extra work here the last couple of days, getting some red zone offense up.   It comes down to execution. We're turning the ball over and making mistakes that we just don't make on other parts of the field and we're making them down in the red zone.  We try to amp it up a little more and put a little more importance to it.  We have to execute it if we're going to find a way to get into the end zone," said head coach Mike Schmidt.

The Eagles and Titans kickoff at two o'clock Saturday in Oshkosh.

The Titans have won the last five meetings.
