Saturday’s games

Nebraska Wesleyan (3-5, 1-5 ARC) at Luther (0-8, 0-6 ARC), Decorah, Iowa, noon — Luther had its top offensive production of the season last Saturday in a 60-40 loss at Buena Vista. Quarterback Parker Kizer had 318 total yards as he rushed for 197 and three touchdowns and threw for another 121. NWU lost to Loras 21-14 at home last Saturday after holding a 14-0 first-half lead, so expect a determined Prairie Wolves team looking to snap their five-game losing streak.

Concordia (3-6, 3-5 GPAC) at NAIA No. 1 Morningside (8-0, 7-0 GPAC), Elwood Olsen Stadium, Sioux City, Iowa, 1 p.m. — Morningside scored a season-low 42 points in a 32-point win at Doane last week, so expect a Mustang team determined to crank up their high-powered offense. Concordia junior linebacker Lane Napier is just one tackle from his second straight season of eclipsing 100 stops. Concordia’s offense managed just seven points in losses to Dordt and Midland the last two weeks.
