Tyler Vander Waal QB vs. Hank Bachmeier QB

The quarterback battle between Northwestern State’s Tyler Vander Waal and Louisiana Tech’s Hank Bachmeier is bound to be the highlight of the game. Vander Waal’s stats are far from impressive, completing just 42.9% of his passes for a total of 110 yards. He’s been sacked five times and has a passer rating of 87.6. These stats highlight the pressure Vander Waal has faced, both from defenses and perhaps his own limitations.


Contrastingly, Hank Bachmeier has a 71.4% completion rate with 574 passing yards. Despite facing 8 sacks, his passer rating stands at a solid 137.4. Bachmeier’s ability to maintain composure and deliver accurate throws gives the Bulldogs a considerable edge in this matchup.
