Youth is served for UW-L football

La Crosse, Wis. (WXOW)   The Eagles head north to Eau Claire for the regular season finale Saturday.
UW-L is in second place alone and trying to lock that down with a win.

The Eagles have won four of their last five games with the only hiccup a loss to Oshkosh during that stretch.
Head coach Mike Schmidt talked often early in the season about how young this team is and that would be some sluggish moments.
But now the young guys have grown into veterans.

“Our teams is playing as well as it has. We’re really healthy. When you look at it as a whole we’re going to be in really good shape on Saturday. I feel really great about our team right now,” Schmidt said.
“We come out with a lot more intensity right now than we did at the beginning of the season. Communication has been way better. Talent-wise as well. We’ve gotten through some injuries and it’s been nice to see a lot of younger guys come up and perform to what we needed them to do,” said senior cornerback Colton Nieman.

UW-L won last year’s meeting 45-14.

Saturday’s game at Carson Park in Eau Claire starts at 2:30 PM and will be televised by WXOW 19.
