It will be a match-up of contrasting styles when the Emporia State Hornets take on the Nebraska Kearney Lopers.
The Hornets have the MIAAs top passing offense and the Lopers have the MIAAs top rushing offense.
Kearney is led by quarterback TJ Davis, who leads the MIAA in rushing. Emporia State Coach Garin Higgins says they will have to do more than contain Davis.
Defensive lineman Rylan Miller says it will boil down to effort.
Emporia State quarterback Braden Gleason says they will have to play a good sound game.
Offensive lineman Connor Lierz says they will face a physical challenge.
Kick-off Saturday in Kearney, Nebraska is set for 1 pm. Coverage on MIX 104.9 begins at 12 pm.
