WEST CHESTER, Pa. (CBS) – After a devastating loss to #2 Bloomsburg last weekend, Division II West Chester will look to bounce back Saturday as they host #16 Kutztown.

The Golden Rams ran out to a 35-0 lead against Bloomsburg, only to watch the Huskies score 55 unanswered points, eventually winning 55-42.

The 35-point deficit was the largest deficit overcome by a team in Division II history.

West Chester head coach Bill Zwaan (photo) says it is critical they don’t let the loss linger.

“We talked about it right away on Sunday, because we needed to immediately practice well.  We couldn’t wait until Thursday to get it out of our heads.  And I think our kids did a good job — we’ve had two good practices since then and our kids have responded well,” Zwaan tells KYW Newsradio.

But it doesn’t get any easier this Saturday, as Kutztown comes to town with a 7-1 record.  Zwaan says that Kutztown can score against anyone.

“They have an outstanding offensive team, including Kevin Morton, who is an outstanding quarterback (and) was our player of the year in the (PSAC) last year and seems to be heading that way again.  And he runs their offense really well.  They’ve got talent at the receiver and running back positions, and offensively they do a good job of getting those guys the ball in space.”

West Chester sits at 4-4 heading into Saturday.  Kickoff for this game is set for 1:00pm.
