Trevor Gilliam, Correspondent

History will be made Oct. 6 when Wilkes takes on the Misericordia Cougars for the first time ever.  Wilkes hosts Misericordia at 1 p.m. Oct. 6 at Schmitt Stadium in the Cougars’ first season of football.

The game will be played at Schmitt Stadium on Wilkes University’s home field. Tickets will be sold at the gate for $5; students get in free if they show their Wilkes student IDs.

“They can beat this team with their speed and quickness.  The size matches up well also but the Colonels have smarter players,” Junior running back, Cal Garvin said.

Misercordia is in last place with a record of 0-4 in the Mid-Atlantic Conference, and Wilkes University is in eighth place with a record of 1-2 in the Mid-Atlantic Conference.
