The Ashland Eagles will try to make Senior Day a happy one when they take on Northern Michigan in the team's final home football game of the season at Jack Miller Stadium/Fred Martinelli Field on Saturday. Last week, the Eagles came away with a hard fought 17-7 win at Hillsdale. The game pretty much belonged to the defense with the Eagles holding the Chargers to just 254 yards total, limiting HC to just 100 yards rushing. The defense also got in on the scoring act when safety Kyle Tomko stepped in front of a Charger pass and returned it 61 yards for a touchdown.

Also last week, Eagles running back Anthony Taylor became the first AU running back to go over the 4,000 yard barrier when he gained 182 yards on 29 carries. Taylor totals 872 yards with nine rushing touchdowns on the season with three regular season games remaining. Northern Michigan comes to Ashland at 2-5, 1-5 in conference play after getting their first GLIAC win last week over Wayne State 33-30. The Wildcats run out of the spread offense averaging 254 yards per game throwing.

After this week, the Eagles will finish the regular on the road at 3-4 Grand Valley State. then at 6-0 Michigan Tech on November 8th. The Huskies play 7-0 Ferris State this weekend for what could be the GLIAC football championship. The Bulldogs stopped last year's GLIAC champ Ohio Dominican 34-19, putting an end to the Panthers 21 game regular season winning streak and putting ODU in a first place tie in the GLIAC South with Ashland.
