Experienced WIU expecting banner 2016 season

(STATS) - Western Illinois won't sneak up on the competition this year while it tries to return to the FCS playoffs.

First-year coach Charlie Fisher got a closer look at his veteran team during spring practices, which concluded Friday night with the Purple squad (offense) edging the White (defense) 52-47 in the annual intrasquad game at Hanson Field.

A modified points system was used to reward the results of different plays. Nathan Knuffman's 33-yard field goal as time expired clinched the win, where a miss would have given the defense the necessary two points to tie the game.
