Whitewater hosts La Crosse in rare Friday night game
Two things catch your eye when looking at this week's WIAC football game pitting UW-La Crosse against UW-Whitewater at Perkins Stadium.
The game pits a 5-0 squad against a 2-3 team. What is different than in recent past seasons is the Warhawks are 2-3 and the Eagles are 5-0.
Secondly, the game is set for Friday at 7 p.m. not Saturday afternoon.
This is the second straight season La Crosse has started 5-0. Last year, the Eagles finished 5-5.
The Warhawks are playing their second straight game at home after four straight road games to open the season.
