The No. 5 Colorado State University-Pueblo ThunderWolves (5-0, 3-0 RMAC) will travel up to Chadron, Neb on Oct. 12, looking for their 32nd straight regular season win vs. the No. 19 Chadron State Eagles (4-1, 3-0 RMAC).

The Eagles return quarterback Jonn McLain, who has thrown for close to 1,200 yards and 11 touchdowns and running back Glen Clinton, who has rushed for 657 yards and seven touchdowns this season, from a 2012 squad that took the T-Wolves into overtime at the Neta & Eddie DeRose ThunderBowl on Oct. 6, 2012.

The T-Wolves, who currently have the No. 16 ranked offense in Division II at 514 yards per game, are led by junior quarterback Chris Bonner, who has passed for more than 1,300 yards and 13 touchdown passes, and sophomore running back Cameron McDondle, who has rushed for 585 yards and five touchdowns.

The defense is led by junior defensive end Darius Allen, who is tied for the lead in Division II with eight sacks this season, and sophomore linebacker, Ben Estica, who has named 46 total tackles through five games.

In addition, senior T-Wolves punter, Brandon Kliesen, was the D2Football.com Special Teams Player of the Week, on Oct. 8, after averaging 48.4 yards per punt on seven punts, six of which landed inside of the 20-yard line.
