Go Southern Go

SIU head football coach Dale Lennon and team members celebrate by singing “Go Southern Go” in front of the home crowd Saturday after the Salukis defeated the University of Northern Iowa in their Homecoming game. The Salukis, who were 3-3 going into the match, came up with several big plays to keep pace with their conference rivals. SIU was tied with the Panthers 31-31 with less than a minute to play when freshman kicker Austin Johnson nailed a 24-yard field goal to give SIU a 34-31 edge. The Saluki defense took over and kept pressure on UNI quarterback Brett Kollmorgen, sacking him twice in UNI’s last possession of the game. The win gives SIU an overall record of 4-3 and a 3-1 record in the conference. — Chris Zoeller | Daily Egyptian
