Both South Dakota School of Mines and Black Hills State dropped decisions on the gridiron last weekend as their offenses sputtered ... the Hardrockers fell 27-7 to Western Colorado and Colorado Mines beat the Jackets 52-7 ... as both schools are now 0-2 on the season ...

The Hardrockers get a non-conference foe THIS WEEK AS they HEAD TO CANADA TO FACE A SIMON FRASER squad that is also 0-2 after being outscored 138-14 in games with Portland State and Angelo State. Mines head coach Zach Tinker knows if his team is going to get its offensive attack rolling a bit, this weekend would be a good time for it.

YEAH ITS A MOMENTUM GAME YOU KNOW ITS A NON LEAGUE GAME SO YOU WANT TO GET SOME MOMENTUM BUILT THERE. WE WANNA PLAY A BETTER VERSION OF OURSELVES. WE ARE REALLY FOCUSED ON OURSELVES THIS WEEK. YOU KNOW WE CERTAINLY HAVE TO PREPARE TO BEAT SIMON FRASER BUT WE GOTTA PREPARE TO BE A BETTER VERSION OF OURSELVES. RIGHT NOW AND THAT IS WHERE THE FOCUS IS. WE EXPECT THAT THEY WILL BE A VERY EXPLOSIVE OFFENSE IN TERMS OF SOME WEAPONS THEY HAVE. THEY HAVE A COUPLE OF PRO PROSPECTS ON THE OFFENSE SO THAT WILL BE A GOOD CHALLENGE FOR US AND ITS A WEIRD PLACE TO PLAY. YOU'RE UP THERE ITS A UNIQUE ENVIRONMENT SO IT WILL BE A GOOD CHALLENGE FOR OUR PLAYERS TO SEE IF THEY CAN OVERCOME IT.

The Hardrockers kick off at 7 o'clock Saturday night while Black Hills is home against Adams State.
