BLOOMINGTON - Illinois Wesleyan opens the NCAA Playoffs against Wartburg on Saturday afternoon at Tucci Stadium.
"Actually I've told our kids that playing in the CCIW is harder than playing in the first round of the playoffs because everybody in league knows what you're doing," says Norm Eash, Head Football Coach. "The playoffs, you don't have as many to scout."
"Every team we play from here on out is going to be tough. There is no easy team in the playoffs. We know that coming in. Wartburg is a good football team, but we'll be prepared to handle them on Saturday," said Chris Simms, IWU Linebacker.
The Titans and Wartburg clash at noon in Bloomington on Saturday.
