Win Streak: UW-W has a sixteen game win streak, through the 2009 season, dating back to the 2008 loss to Mount Union.

Home Streak: The Warhawks have won fifteen consecutive games at Perkins Stadium, dating back to a 17-16 loss to UW-Stevens Point, October 25, 2008.

Special Day: The game is sponsored by Generac. Generac CEO Aaron Jagdfeld will be honored with the first Athletic Director's Excellence Award. Jagdfeld graduated from UW-W with a degree in accounting. He went to work for Deloitte and Touche in Milwaukee, then moved to the finance department at Generac in 1994. He was promoted to chief financial officer in 2002. In 2007 he was named president of the company, with responsibility for sales, marketing, engineering and product development, and he was promoted to chief executive officer in 2008. Jagdfeld was a member of the track and field team at UW-Whitewater. He lettered four years, and served as a team captain his senior year. He placed sixth in the long jump at the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference indoor championship in 1991, and added a fifth place in the same event at the WIAC's outdoor meet.

National Poll: UW-W is ranked first in D3football.com poll. Dakota State is affiliated with the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, and DSU offers athletic scholarships.
UW-W Head Coach: Lance Leipold is beginning his fourth year at UW-Whitewater, his only head coaching position. He is 43-3 (.935) over his first three seasons. The Warhawks have won Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference titles all three years (and five in a row) and advanced through the NCAA III playoffs to the Stagg Bowl all three years (and five in a row), winning national titles in 2007 and 2009.

Dakota State Head Coach: You can go home again. Josh Anderson begins his second season as the head coach at Dakota State University. Anderson also had five years of assistant college coaching experience at North Dakota State University, South Dakota State University and Wayne State College (Neb.) A native of Madison, S.D., Anderson played tight end for the Trojans from 1994-95, was a two-year starter and an all-conference SDIC player. Anderson then transferred to NDSU to play a similar position from 1996-1998. He red-shirted his first year, had a back-up role his second year and was a starter his senior year with the Bison. Anderson was a member of the Bison's 1997 NCAA Division II playoff team.

About the Trojans: Dakota State University is located in Madison, South Dakota. The school was founded in 1881 and has an enrollment of 2,780. Their colors are blue and yellow.

The Trojans return twenty starters from last year's 2-7 team which also went 2-6 in the Dakota Athletic Conference for seventh place. Dakota State was picked to finish seventh out of eight teams in the DAC preseason poll. DSU is its final year in the league, set to compete as an independent next year. Running back Drew Allen rushed for 4.0 yards per carry last year, and wide receiver balances Allen with the 26 catches for 5 touchdowns in 2010. Junior tight end Derek Kreutzfeldt has moved in to the starting lineup. QB Paul Bagala completed 49% of his passes for 1,694 yards and 13 TD's as a freshman in 2009. Bagala is one of five sophomores in the offensive starting lineup, which also includes four freshmen. The lone senior is center Bob Masterson, 5-11, 285. Masterson and sophomore left tackle Marshall Doeden, 6-4, 240, anchor the line.

The defense features a standout at every stop. The unit looks to linebacker Joe Whealy, second team all DAC in '09, tackle Wade Hoffman, and back Bryce Logan, 53 tackles and 5 behind the line, for steady plays and leadership.

DSU lost their opener, falling 38-7 to Midland Lutheran College at home last week. UW-W defeated Midland Lutheran 58-0 in Perkins Stadium in the second game of 2009. A Bagala to Carl Curtis 28 yard pass provided the points for the Trojans. Bagala went 15-40 for 173 yards, connecting with Curtis on three of those for 79 yards. Allen led DSU with 23 yards rushing on 14 attempts. Midland Lutheran QB's combined to go 9-27 for 114 yards. Six different players recorded a sack for Midland Lutheran.

About the Warhawks: UW-W coach Lance Leipold stresses one play at a time, one series at a time, one game at a time. That philosophy paid dividends last week as the Warhawks bounced back from a scoreless first quarter to defeat Adrian College 35-0. UW-W scored on four consecutive possessions in the second half, averaging 4.9 yards per rush in the contest. Four players (Coppage, Anderson, Stanley, Blanchard) shared the load, none averaging less than 4.0 per carry. Blanchard, making his first collegiate start, completed 19-25 for 289 yards and 2 touchdowns without throwing an interception. Aaron Rusch added to his school records for career receptions and yards with 5 catches for 78 yards, and Adam Brandes topped that with 131 yards on 4 receptions. The shutout, UW-W's first since the 2009 Midland Lutheran game, came from holding Adrian to 162 total yards. Adrian managed less than two yards per rushing attempt. Linebacker Lane Olson and DB Matt McCullouch led UW-W with nine tackles each.

As Leipold would point out in his quest for continual improvement, one of the areas that will be watched this week is the place kicking game. UW-W missed three extra points last week, and the field goal kicking wasn't really tested, making the team's only attempt, a 24-yarder. Kickoffs weren't under the gun either, with UW-W kicking twice from advanced placement because of Adrian penalties. Not a problem, but something the coaching staff would like to evaluate in a game.

Ticket Information: Tickets are Monday-Friday during regular business hours in the University Center ticket office on the main campus mall. Tickets can also be purchased at the gate on game day. Call 262-472-2222 for ticket information.

Follow the Warhawks: The game will be carried by long-time partner WKCH radio, 106.5 FM. UW-W TV, Charter Cable (channel 19 or 20 depending on your local system) will also telecast the game live in south central Wisconsin. UW-W will also provide live stats off a link on the Follow the Warhawks page or the 2010 schedule. Both WKCH's audio and UW-W TV's video will be streamed, with links to both on the UW-W athletics site at www.uwwsports.com.

Coming Up: UW-W will climb on the bus for the first time this season, heading to Kentucky to take on Campbellsville University, a team the Warhawks have never faced. After an open date, Whitewater will open the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference season Thursday, September 30. The next Perkins Stadium game will be October 9, Family Day sponsored by Qdoba, at 3:00 with UW-Stout on hand.
