Lakeland Muskies vs UW-Oshkosh Titans
Where: Taylor Field, Lakeland Campus, Sheboygan, Wis.
Kickoff: 1 p.m., Saturday
Records: Lakeland 0-2; UW-Oshkosh 1-1.
Who to watch: Lakeland junior running back Shawn Lee, junior quarterback Brad Wilk and junior wide receiver MacArthur White. The three men led the Muskie offensive charge against Carthage last week. Last Saturday, Lee paced a good day for the Muskies' rushing attack with 75 yards and a touchdown run. Wilk added 40 yards rushing on nine carries and completed eight of his 22 pass attempts for 144 yards. White caught four passes for 43 yards. Defensively, sophomore defensive linebacker Stephan Johnson, who had 13 total tackles, including 8 solo tackles, three tackles for loss and one sack last week, looks to rain on the Titans parade.
Another strong Titan team will be looking to exploit the Lakeland defense. Leading the offense is junior quarterback Joe Patek who passed for 233 yards in last week's 33-22 loss to Division II Minnesota State University-Mankato. He also completed 20 of 34 passes, including seven for 48 yards to junior running back Andy Moriarty. Moriarty was a d3football.com Division III All-West Region second-team selection last year. Defensively, junior linebacker Eric Stenbroten, a preseason first team d3football.com All-American, is among those looking to stop a Muskies' win. Stenbroten compiled 76 tackles in 2005, including 23.5 for a loss and nine quarterback sacks to lead the WIAC in both categories.
What's at stake: Last weekend the Muskies suffered a disappointing seven-point loss at the hands Carthage in Lakeland's home opener. This week, the Muskies close out their rugged non-conference schedule against another solid team in the Titans. A strong showing Saturday afternoon could give the Muskies momentum as they head into the conference portion of their schedule.
