After a tough 10-9 loss at Indianapolis last Saturday in their opener, the Ashland University Eagle football team hopes to rebound with their first win of 2013 in Detroit at Wayne State. Likewise, the Warriors will also be looking to bounce back after being run over by Carson-Newman 55-28. The Eagles could see two quarterbacks on defense from Wayne State in redshirt sophomore Carl Roscoe or redshirt junior Sean Guinane. Both have size and both are very similar according to Ashland coach Lee Owens. For the Eagles, they will go again with true freshman Austin Bruns who was 13 of 18 passing for 63 yards, while running for 21 yards on seven carries scoring AU's only touchdown in the first half and did not turn the ball over. Ashland won last year's contest 7-0 at Jack Miller Stadium. The last win by Wayne State over the Eagles came in Detroit back in 2009 by a final of 47-40. In his nine previous games against the Warriors, Owens is 7-2 against his former coaching assistant and now head coach at Wayne State, Paul Winters. Both Owens and Winters coached together at Akron.

WMFD will carry all AU home games.  The September 21st and 28th games with Ferris State and Northern Michigan will be carried live at 7pm, while the October 12th, 26th and November 9th games with Ohio Dominican, Malone and Tiffin University will be carried on tape the day of the game at 6:30pm.
