Aztecs fall to Panthers in season opener

by Matthew Bain

Aztec kicker Wes Feer kicked four field goals in his first ever college football game. That was one of the few bright spots for the Aztecs in their season opener to the Eastern Illinois University Panthers, losing 40-19.

Characterized by four interceptions, three allowed touchdown passes and many dropped passes, the Aztecs’ play could only be described as lackluster.

Junior quarterback Adam Dingwell completed 27 of his 63 passes for 318 yards and junior running back Adam Muema spent most of the game on the sideline.

The Aztecs have a week to bounce back from this disappointing loss before they face the No. 2 team in the nation, Ohio State University.
