Grand Valley meets Wayne State, the first of two meetings with the Warriors this season, for a 6 p.m. game on September 24 at Tom Adams Field in Detroit.

Saturday's game is not a conference game with the Warriors. Wayne State will visit Allendale on November 5 for the teams' GLIAC game.

The Lakers (3-0) sit at No. 3 in this week’s American Football Coaches Association weekly poll, following their 66-7 win over Lincoln (Calif.) University on September 17.

In their previous 17 matchups, Wayne State has just one victory over Grand Valley, and that came in 2019 when the Warriors beat the Lakers, 31-17, at Lubbers Stadium.

Sophomore placekicker Kollin Kralap was named the GLIAC’s Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance against Lincoln. Kralap was 9-for-9 on point after attempts and connected on a 40-yard field goal, the longest of his Grand Valley career.

Fans can listen to Saturday’s game on 96.9 WLAV-FM with the pregame show beginning at 4:30 p.m. Wayne State will stream the game online on its athletics page. Lakers fans can purchase a 24-hour pass to access the livestream.
