October 15, 2008 - One week after playing the number one-ranked team in the nation on te road at night, the Hillsdale College football team returns to more familiar surroundings this Saturday, as the Chargers host Northern Michigan University. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. at Frank "Muddy" Waters Stadium.

Hillsdale is 4-3 overall on the season and 3-3 in the GLIAC. The Wildcats, coming off a 24-10 road loss to Wayne State, are 1-5 overall and in conference play.

This game marks the second straight long road trip for Northern Michigan, having driven down to Detroit and back last weekend. Long trips aren't unusual for this Upper Peninsula team, who routinely travel eight hours or more for its road games. The last time NMU played at Hillsdale was in the Chargers' home opener for the 2006 season, and the Wildcats rallied from a 14-point, first-quarter deficit to beat the Chargers, 31-24.

Since that game, Hillsdale has been extremely tough at home. Hillsdale is 12-2 at Muddy Waters Stadium since that game, and have won seven of those games by 17 or more points.
