The game will be broadcast live on WMCO 90.7 FM and simulcast on the Muskie Sports Network located on the Muskingum athletic web site beginning with the pregame show at 1:45 p.m. The Muskies enter the contest with 499 program wins, one shy of the 500-win milestone.

The Fighting Muskies (0-2, 0-1) will look to rebound after dropping their home opener against top-ranked University of Mount Union, 37-0.

Baldwin Wallace (1-1, 0-1) enters the ballgame after falling to John Carroll University, 27-7.

He is only 299 yards shy of breaking the career receiving record held by former Muskie and current Purdue University Head Coach, Darrell Hazel.

Rataiczak has caught five passes for 48 yards.
