Wayne State Warriors Beat Nebraska-Kearney, Advance In Playoffs

DETROIT (WWJ) – The Wayne State University football team is advancing farther than ever before as it heads for the Division II regional finals.

The Warriors beat Nebraska-Kearney Saturday on the road in their second playoff game.

Coach Paul Winters has more on what the team– which was ranked lowest going into the playoffs– has been doing to win.

“Offensively we ran the football very well, physically we’re dominate I think at times on offense, defensively we ran to the football – tackled, and this past week we created a lot of turnovers,” said Winters.

The Warriors will face Minnesota Duluth next weekend in Minnesota. That team holds the Division II title.

“I think the biggest thing is you get the momentum of the home crowd, and you get the comfort of going through a routine, that you have at home … like sleeping in your own bed – those kinds of things,” said Winters.

Winters says that no having a home field advantage helps keep his team focused.
