The Dodge City Conquistadors football team travels to Council Bluffs, Iowa Saturday to take on the No. 5 Iowa Western Reivers. The game is scheduled for 1 p.m.
Dodge City enters the game 2-3 overall and fresh off a three-point, double-overtime loss last week to Butler Grizzlies. The Reivers are 3-1 overall, and also coming off a three-point loss last week, theirs to Garden City by a score of 16-13.
Garden City now sits at No. 2 in the national rankings, having jumped from No. 7 to No. 2. Iowa Western fell from No. 2 to No. 5.
Things don’t get any easier for the Conquistadors the rest of the way. Of the Conquistadors’ final five opponents, all but Fort Scott (which the team plays last) are either ranked or receiving votes to become ranked.
The Conqs are next in action at home Oct. 6 against Coffeyville. That game is scheduled for 1 p.m.
