SIU head football coach Dale Lennon and team members celebrate by singing “Go Southern Go” in front of the home crowd after the Salukis defeated the University of Northern Iowa in their Oct. 13 Homecoming game. The Salukis, who were 3-3 going into the match, came up with several big plays to keep pace with their conference rivals. SIU was tied at 31 with the Panthers with less than a minute to play when freshman kicker Austin Johnson nailed a 24-yard field goal to give SIU a 34-31 edge. The Saluki defense took over and kept pressure on UNI quarterback Brett Kollmorgen, sacking him twice in UNI’s last possession of the game.

Freshman tight end MyCole Pruitt runs the ball downfield Sept. 15 during the first home game at Saluki Stadium. Coach Dale Lennon said during his post-game press conference that this is the offense they were waiting to put on display. “We want to feel that the hard work and preparation is going to show,” he said.
