After 2,400 miles of travel to-and-from Michigan to pick up a pair of wins, Truman State gets to play a team from the Wolverine State at home when Hillsdale comes to Stokes Stadium on Saturday. It’s part of two weekends where teams from the Great Lakes Valley Conference play opponents from the Great Midwest Athletic Conference.
