And for the second straight season, Evangel is stepping up to play an NCAA division one FCS team.
Evangel is going to Thibodaux, Louisiana to take on Nicholls State.
Last year, the Crusaders opened the season at Nicholls State and lost 42-nothing.
Illum says his Evangel team has improved since then especially on defense.
And the Crusaders will take a 2-1 record into Louisiana.
"Last year we played well enough that when we came back we felt like we could do some things," said Evangel coach Brenton Illum. "The next week we knocked off a Top 25 team off that confidence. So hopefully we can do the same things. We come back and we play the number one team in our league when we get back."
"Nicholls State, they play fast, everybody plays so fast," said Evangel running back Tommy Meyer. "Playing against that speed will help us so much. We're going to practice faster now. We're going to play in a game faster. We're going to get in more reps because just how fast Nicholls State is."
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark--The Arkansas Razorbacks will try to bounce back into the win column Saturday when they go to Little Rock and take on Rutgers.
There's turmoil in Arkansas.
Questions about Tyler Wilson's status after a concussion, and the team's two game losing streak.
Adam Alter checks in with our Razorback Nation report.
Tyler Wilson still not cleared to play Saturday, but he's not limited at all in practice.
The Razorbacks are game planning like number eight will be in the huddle.
"Tyler looked real good," said Arkansas tight end Chris Gragg. "Actually he was throwing the ball a little harder than he usually does. I told him he might want to slow it down a little bit."
"It was a great day down there at practice and he looked really good," said Arkansas offensive coordinator Paul Petrino. "Good energy and good fire, kind of like a new beginning. We have to start over and get after it and move on from this point on and start winning.
Adam Alter/Razorback Nation:"The Hogs are desperate, backed into a corner. And the coaching staff is holding every single member of the team accountable beginning with its leaders."
The harsh reality of a 1-and-2 record is nobody's job is safe.
Including Knile Davis who's rushing stats resemble nothing of his breakout season in 2010.
Petrino:"He needs to play better. He knows it, we know it. He needs to come out and play better."
"We just need to do the little things right," said Arkansas tailback Knile Davis. "We need to execute. The biggest thing for us is execution. We need to execute. That's the bottom line, no little mind game, or mind trick. We need to execute."
Petrino:"We need to have great effort. The guys who give great effort are going to play period. The guys who don't aren't going to play and that's the bottom line."
Because Arkansas simply cannot stomach another embarrassing performance.
