SIU's Offensive Woes
CARBONDALE -- Fresh off an upset of then ninth-ranked Illinois State on the road Saturday, the Football Salukis return home this Saturday to welcome Northern Iowa.
Lost in the dominant defensive performance of Saturday's 17-0 win is the Saluki offense which continues to struggle. The Dawgs have scored only 34 points in three conference games, with two of those touchdowns coming from the defense and special teams.
Last week, SIU managed only 182 total yards of offense. If you take out three, 30-plus yard plays, the Salukis managed only 85 yards on their other 65 plays.
