Lincoln to host Emporia State

Lincoln to host Emporia State

October 22nd, 2011 in News

With their 69-6 win over the Lincoln Blue Tigers last week, the Pittsburg State Gorillas jumped from No. 7 to No. 4 in the Division II rankings.

About the only good thing about LU's trip to Pittsburg, Kan., was on a personal level for Coach Mike Jones.

"It's a great place to play at," he said. "And it was good to visit there since my father was born and raised in Pittsburg and I'd never been there before."

Today, the Blue Tigers (1-6 overall, 0-6 Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association) return home after two straight road games to host the Emporia State Hornets (2-5, 1-5) at 2 p.m. at Dwight T. Reed Stadium.
