Truman State football is home Saturday against Missouri S&T

Truman1

The much awaited home debut of the 2017 Truman Football team will be Saturday night as the Bulldogs raise the curtain on the Great Lakes Valley Conference season against Missouri S&T.

Dating back to last season, the Bulldogs have played their last four games on foreign soil and are 1-3 including losses to Michigan Tech and Morningside this year.

The Bulldogs rally came up short on Saturday against the fourth-ranked Mustangs as they lost 35-30. Truman put up 442 yards of total offense, the most in 17 games and had their second straight 100-yard rusher in Jordan Salima and a 100-yard receiver in Jordan Jorgenson.

The Miners will also be searching for their first victory of 2017 having lost home games to West Florida and Northwood (Mich.). S&T lost their opener to West Florida 20-16 then fell in a shootout with Northwood 47-34.

The two old rivals will be playing for the 80th time dating back to 1909.

The Bulldogs have a commanding 52-23-4 record against the Miners but each team has won on their opponents field in the last two games.

S&T spoiled the home opener for the Bulldogs in 2015 with a 10-7 win at Stokes Stadium and Truman returned the favor last year with a 44-20 victory in Rolla.
