WAYNE – A pair of 1-0 NSIC football teams will meet Saturday night during a cross division showdown.

From Bob Cunningham Field on the campus of Wayne State College, WSC will welcome in Northern State University with kickoff set for 6 p.m.

Both teams are coming off wins in their season openers last week as the Wolves shutout Upper Iowa on Thursday in Aberdeen, South Dakota 30-0 while Wayne State posted a 33-28 win at the University of Mary.

NSU and WSC are meeting for the first time since the 2019 season when the Wolves came to Wayne and posted a 29-26 win in double overtime.

Northern State enjoys a 15-10 lead in the all-time series against the Wildcats and has won three of the last four matchups. Two of the last four meetings have gone into overtime while four straight and six of the last eight contests have been decided by seven points or less.
