SIOUX CITY, Iowa--With a forecasted high temperature of 19 degrees, the Morningside rushing attack could prove vital in Saturday's showdown with No. 2 Grand View.
Luckily for the fifth-ranked Mustangs, they have a stable of running backs with an experienced offensive line.
Highlighted by Brandon Wegher and Jon Halvorson, the Mustangs have five rushers with over 200 yards this season.
Wegher leads the team with 1,106 touchdowns and averages almost six yards per carry. The former Heelan standout also has nine touchdowns.
But Halvorson leads the team in that category with ten, and has chipped in 848 rushing yards this season.
Even the quarterback, Ryan Kasdorf, has over 500 yards.
The Mustangs and Vikings kick off at 1 PM on Saturday in Des Moines.
