Vikings vs. Jimmies Preview

The Vikings are coming off a 23-13 win against Dickinson State, have won six straight games, and are currently ranked #16 in the NAIA. Jamestown is coming of a 28-12 win against Mayville State. In the game Jamestown did suffer the loss of their senior starting quarterback Brad Lint. That means that junior quarterback Tyler Notch will be taking over running the Jimmie offense. In the first meeting between the two teams this year the Vikings kept the Jimmie passers under constant pressure, recording seven sacks. Jordan Maher (SR, DL, Bowman ND) has been nightmare for opposing quarterbacks, recording 7.5 sacks on the year good for 3rd most in the NAIA. The Viking defense will be counting on Maher and the entire D-line to pressure Notch, and keep the Jimmies in long down and distance situations which should help to keep the ball out of the hands of the Jimmie's explosive playmakers Lance Johansen and Max Boe. The Vikings will need to continue what has been working for them by playing efficient offensive football. Tommy Zinke (SR, QB, Rolla ND) is ranked 9th in the NAIA in pass efficiency and has been spreading the ball well to his receivers. Zinke was helped last week by AJ Pfeifer (SR, RB, Buffalo ND) who ran a bruising 39 time for 152 yds. Letheo Proctor (SR, WR, Buffalo ND) has continued to be a big play threat, last week he hauled in a 62 yd touchdown from Zinke and had six total receptions for 96 yds.

Key for a Viking Victory: Continue to pressure the opposing QB, limit untimely turnovers in the red zone, run the ball effectively.
