G-MAC Statistics


  • A pair of old GLIAC rivals meet in the U.P., as the Chargers make their longest road trip of the season this weekend, taking on Michigan Tech
  • These two teams met in Hillsdale's 2017 home opener, a game that saw the Chargers make a furious comeback, scoring 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter of a 31-27 victory
  • Hillsdale leads the all-time series between these teams 19-8
  • Hillsdale's last win in Houghton came on Oct. 15, 2011, a 13-7 slugfest
  • Michigan Tech had a long, but successful road trip to open the 2018 season, defeating Truman 20-10 on Aug. 30
  • The 9 points allowed by the Chargers last week was the fewest they've allowed in a season opener since 2009, when they beat St. Joseph's 37-7
  • Head coach Keith Otterbein has won 99 games as Hillsdale's head coach. His next victory would give him 100, making him just the third head coach in program history to hit triple figures in coaching wins (Frank "Muddy" Waters and Dick Lowry)
