Loper football gets second chance to go out on top

By  | 

KEARNEY, Neb. (KSNB) - The Nebraska-Kearney football team (6-5) had a rough time last Saturday against Washburn. The Lopers allowed 657 yards of total offense to the Ichabods in their 57-41 drumming at Ron & Carol Cope Stadium.

With only six wins, the postseason seemed like a long shot but on Monday, Nov. Head Coach Josh Lynn told the team they were invited to participate in the Mineral Water Bowl in Excelsior Springs, Mo.

"It's great for the young men who haven't gotten to do anything like this. We've got young men in our program that went two years with winning one game," Lynn said. "It's extremely special for them to go on and have an experience like this they'll remember for the rest of their life."

In Lynn's three year tenor in Kearney, he has improved every single year. Now helping guide the team to its 12th postseason berth in school history, he loves the direction he has this program going.

UNK faces Winona State (8-3) on Saturday, Dec. 7. Kickoff set for 12 p.m.
