The Ashland University Eagle football team will try to get their first win in three tries coming up on Saturday evening at home when they take on 1-1 Ferris State. The Bulldogs picked up their first win last week beating Lake Erie in GLIAC play 56-49, while the Eagles were coming up short to Wayne State 34-22. When asked if this was a must win for his club, Ashland coach Lee Owens said he and his squad don't look at it that way saying they take it game by game. Owens comments that AU has played well enough to win, but they have not been able to finish, something the team did last season. One of the bright spots for the Eagle offense through two games has been the performance of running back Anthony Taylor. In two games Taylor has run 323 yards, 220 last week against Wayne State scoring one touchdown. Owens also said the Eagles will go with two freshman quarterbacks in starter Austin Bruns, who was eight of 15 for 105 yards last week and Tra'von Chapman who joined the team this summer as a transfer from Pitt. Chapman got in for two series a week ago against the Warriors and was able to move the team with a limited play menu. Owens says it gives the offense a change of pace when he comes in. On defense, Ashland was led by linebacker Cody Bloom who had 13 tackles. Right behind Bloom was defensive lineman Jamie Meder with 12. Ashland defeated Ferris State a year ago 47-32. WMFD TV will air the AU vs FSU game live, joining the telecast at 7pm with the kickoff set for 7:05pm Saturday evening from Jack Miller Stadium-Fred Martinelli Field.
