Brief: Football vs Emporia State

Bryan Grabauskas Washburn Review

At 2:00 pm on Saturday, Nov. 12 the Emporia State Hornets will come to Yager Stadium to take on the Washburn Ichabods in what should be a close match-up between the two teams. Washburn is coming into this game with a 7-3 record, however, Emporia State has a 9-1 record, with their sole loss coming on opening night. Both of these teams have very productive offenses, either one of them capable of putting up 30-40 points if they need to. The only problem for both teams is that both of their defenses are vulnerable to opponents’ offenses. This weekend viewers are in for a possible shootout, making this is a winnable game for the Ichabods. The Ichabods have to play hard and their defense needs to make some plays to get the victory. This game is highly anticipated every year, as the Ichabods and the Hornets have a fierce rivalry, but were beat soundly last year by the Hornets 47-21.
