“We’re high, but we’re going to stay the same,” says Penguins linebacker Alex Howard. “The November games are playoffs or no playoffs. So you got to win them.”

“You have to be playing your best football in November. We’re winning. I don’t know if we’re playing the best football,” says YSU head coach Doug Phillips. “That’s the challenge that you go into practice with. We want to be playing our best football in November, and we have an opportunity this Saturday to be better than we were this past Saturday.”
