Bottineau, ND. – Dakota College at Bottineau (3-4 overall) is on the road this weekend in the MCAC playoffs to battle the North Dakota State College of Science (7-1) in Wahpeton, ND. Kickoff is at 2:00 PM on Sunday, October 27th.
DCB never had beaten the Wildcats until 2013. Since then, NDSCS holds a 6-4 lead having won the last 3 meetings including a 20-6 win over the Lumberjacks earlier this fall in Wahpeton.
DCB: The Lumberjacks' took a long road trip to Ely, Minnesota last weekend and held on to defeat Vermilion CC 32-27. The Jacks had several red zone stops in the last quarter and a half to hold off the determined Ironmen. Freshman RB Tex Thompson gained 137 yards on the ground to pace the DCB offense. Sophomore LB Jailin Harris had 7 tackles with one sack and a fumble recovery and interception to win MCAC West POW honors.
NDSCS: The Wildcats have had another fine season with a 7-1 record. They defeated nationally ranked Mesabi Range last weekend on a FG with 1 second left in the game. NDSCS has a strong running game and a solid defense and have to be one of the favorites to win the MCAC this year. It will be a tough task for the Lumberjacks. DCB and the Wildcats played a tight game earlier this year with the game remaining in the balance until a late NDSCS TD put it away.
