The roughriders are back on the road Friday night when they head up north to take on the 3-2 panthers.
Fairbanks have beaten (1-4) Fisher Cath, (2-3) Madison Plains &
(1-4) Southeastern.
Under center for Fairbanks is a freshman qb #80 Mason Cushman 5-11 181 who also plays DB and plays it well.
The O-line is anchored by #66 Sam Rengert So. 6-7 270.
They have good size wr's from 6' to 6' 4".
They are a scrappy team.
They like to stay balanced on offense, against Southeastern Friday night Fairbanks had 193 rushing yards and 221 passing yards.

WJ coming in to this game finally allowed a team (SCC) to have doubled them in time of possession and gave up 323 total yards of offense last Friday.
The triple option offense really kept wj off the field and kept their potent offense from scoring a bunch early.
The defense came up with 3 more INT's, 1 pick 6 which is 3 on the season and a total of +8 on turnovers.

Lambert continues to stay hot 52 of 71 (73.2%) for 951 yards & 11 TD's on the season with 1 INT.
33 car for 229 yards (6.9 avg,) & 6 TD's.
The running game is beginning to click with whoever is in the there.

WJ young men better be ready to play this week as I believe Fairbanks may actually be the best team they have faced. Need to take care of the ball, come out hot early, continue to force turnovers (pressure the Fresh QB) and continue to get better headed into the meaty part of the schedule.
1's and 2's need to work extra hard in practice to get ready to play full games in the battles ahead (actually should have already done this) as they are coming and will test the Riders.
I thought the defense was a bit hot and cold last week and gave up way too many yards. Will have to do better to remain undefeated.
Go Riders!!!
