YOUNGSTOWN, OH (WYTV)- This week Head Coach Eric Wolford and his Youngstown State players will be doing something Wolford says hasn’t been done before, practice on a grass field. The Penguins are holding a few practices this week at Rayen Stadium to prepare for the grass field at South Dakota State.

But this weeks matchup against the Jackrabbits could come down to something much simplier than natural grass or artificial turf. Which team is physically and mentally stronger than the other.

“Since I’ve been here, every time we’ve played it’s really one thing that just stands out that they’ve done really well, is they’ve out-physicalled us,” says YSU senior wide receiver Christian Bryan.

“I mean, they physically beat us, you know and there’s no excuse for that. You know what I mean, they just have had more want than us.”

Last year, SDSU came to Youngstown and handed the Guins a 42-13 loss that knocked YSU out of the playoffs, something that they do not want to go through again this year.

“How much do you want it?” said Bryan during the weekly YSU press conference Tuesday

“What type of effort are you going to play with, what type of heart and effort are you going to play with? But you know, those are the types of games you want to play in.”
