Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The University of Minnesota-Duluth (UMD) football team has to do just one thing to ensure they're part of the NCAA tournament at year's end, and that's continue to win after suffering a loss to MSU-Mankato earlier this season.

Another loss would likely put the No. 11 Bulldogs on the outside looking in of the 16-team field.

Senior captain and Willow River, Minn. native Nate Zuk said the team's aware of the situation and is up the challenge moving forward.

"We take every week, week-by-week," said Zuk. "We're not looking at anyone differently should we say Mankato or St. Cloud so it's one and out. We have to win out to give ourselves that chance that we want so that's the goal."

Zuk and the Bulldogs will take on MSU-Moorhead on Saturday with kickoff set for 2:00 p.m.
