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.


Fans can attend a free pregame tailgate concert featuring national recording artist Jackie Lee starting at 5 p.m. in the stadium parking lot (Lot 24).
