Eagles seek first winning season since 2007

Posted: Updated:
La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -

It's a big day on campus Saturday for UW-La Crosse football.
They'll host 11th-ranked UW-Platteville.
 The Eagles have lost four straight after starting the season 5-0.
 But a win  over the Pioneers would give this re-building program it's first winning season since 2007.
It would be a great way to send the seniors off.    

"It would mean a lot.  I've been here, this is my fifth season, and we haven't had a winning record yet.  It's definitely something to look forward.  It would mean a lot to the community and everyone who's starved for a winning season.  So it would definitely mean a lot to everyone," said senior defensive back Matt Williquette.
"We want to win that thing as bad as we've wanted to win a game ever for those guys because of their dedication to our city and our school," said head coach Mike Schmidt.

Kickoff Saturday at Harring Stadium is set for 1 PM.
