Football Heads To Motor City On Saturday

(DETROIT) – Walsh heads on the road to Michigan once again to take on No. 25 Wayne State in a GLIAC contest this Saturday. Kickoff between the Cavaliers (0-6, 0-6) and the Warriors (5-1, 5-1) is set for 12:07 p.m.

It's the fourth and final road trip to Michigan this weekend for the Cavs who have traveled to Michigan Tech, Hillsdale, and Northern Michigan in their three prior road games. Walsh has one road game remaining after this week when it travels to Ashland on Saturday, November 5.

The series between Walsh and Wayne State is still in its infancy as the teams have met just twice before. Those games have come in each of the last two seasons. The Warriors took the first meeting in 2014 by a score of 52-17. They also won last year's contest 31-16.

Freshman quarterback Mitchell Ault continues to do well under center since taking over the position in the third game of the season against Saginaw Valley. This season he has completed 82 passes on 126 attempts. His completion percentage of 65.1 percent leads the GLIAC.

Overall, Walsh's passing attack has the third-most completions in the GLIAC. The Cavaliers have completed 127-of-199 attempts.

Nick King continues to be one of the dominant players in the GLIAC. He now leads the GLIAC in tackles and tackles per game with 65 and 10.8, respectively. Last week against the Dragins, he made a season-best 15. It's the fourth time he's made double-digit tackles. King also did so at Hillsdale (12), Saginaw Valley State (13), and at Northern Michigan (10).
