A Saturday afternoon game at Hanson Field quickly turned into a Saturday night affair between Western Illinois and Missouri State. A 99-minute severe weather delay pushed the completion of the game until 8:11 p.m. The Leathernecks were able to prevail, winning 49-30 to improve to 5-1, and 2-1 in Missouri Valley Football Conference play.
I spoke with WIU Head Football Coach Charlie Fisher about the win, as he went into detail about the weather delay and how it came at the perfect time for WIU. We also looked ahead to North Dakota State, who Western will face on Saturday. You can listen to the interview here.
