Bottineau, ND. – Dakota College at Bottineau (3-3) will take to the road for the third time this year, traveling to Fergus Falls, Minnesota and a contest with Minnesota State Community and Technical College (1-4) on Saturday, October 13th.  Kickoff is at 3:00.

The Series
DCB leads the all-time series 3-1, defeating the Spartans 49-10 last year in Bottineau. 

The Teams
The Lumberjacks lost the Lumbercat trophy in tough fashion last Saturday, falling to ND Science 9-7.  DCB's defense shut out the Wildcats, but a fumble returned for a TD and a late safety gave Science all the points they needed.  RB Jaylen Wilson rushed for 76 yards and DCB's lone TD in the game.

The Lumberjack defense held NDSCS to 153 yards of total offense.  The rush defense held the Wildcats 100 yards under their season average.  LB Aaron Appleton and DB Isaiah Dennis-McLean each had 14 tackles to lead the Jacks.  Dennis-McLean's effort earned him MCAC West POW honors.  DT Nekio Hayes-Thurman had 9 tackles, 2 for losses, and a fumble recovery as well.

MSCFF: The Spartans did not play last weekend as both their regularly scheduled game with Ridgewater and their makeup game with the Mayville State JV were canceled.  They have some fine players on both sides of the ball and will be fighting for their playoff lives, as will the Jacks.  It is MSCTC's homecoming this Saturday as well.
