After winning the GLIAC football championship and advancing to the NCAA Division II playoffs a year ago with an overall record of 11-1, the Ashland University Eagles will open the 2013 season on the road under ten year head coach Lee Owens, Saturday at 6pm at Indianapolis. Like the Eagles, the Greyhounds also won the GLVC and advanced to the post season in Division II finishing with an overall record of 10-3, with one of those three losses coming to AU at Jack Miller Stadium 37-14, in week one. Last season the Eagle offense was led by veteran quarterback Taylor Housewright who was a three year starter finishing his career at AU as an All-American. This season, freshman Austin Bruns out of Coldwater, Ohio will be the first true freshman to start at quarterback for the Eagles since Willard's Nick Strance did it back on September 28, 2003 against nationally ranked Saginaw Valley State. The Greyhounds will answer with veteran QB Chris Mills. Mills threw for 3,013 yards on 246 of 370 passing with 27 touchdown throws to go along with 13 picks last season. Ashland enters to game as the favorite to win the GLIAC South Division and is ranked ninth nationally, while UIndy comes into the contest ranked 19th. In his ten seasons at Ashland, Owens is 5-2 against the Greyhounds. The Eagles will be looking for their 12th straight regular season win dating back to last year.
