Writing a check the team must cash

Posted: Updated:
NATCHITOCHES, La. -

Northwestern State ventures back in to the F-B-S for a second week in a row which gives the players a chance to test themselves against a team from a larger division, but it also brings a big check to the athletic program.

The Demons are coming off a tough loss at Cincinnati last week which the Bearcats won 66-9.  This week they travel to UAB, which knows this feeling all too well.  On September 7th, UAB played LSU in Tiger Stadium and lost 56-17.  NSU wide receiver Bryant Mitchell says the team learned a lot about itself in that game at Cincinnati, including how to fight through adversity.  In Mitchell's words, "That was an adverse game."

But the Demons do have a chance to right their ship before conference play begins.  They return home to play little Langston next week, then have a week off before opening Southland Conference play October 12 at Nicholls State.
