It's been a historic season for numerous reasons for Augustana Football this Fall, and it isn't over yet.

On Wednesday, the team and program garnered some serious recognition from the conference in its end-of-season awards.

First and foremost, longtime Augustana Head Football Coach Jerry Olszewski was tabbed as the conference Coach of the Year after guiding the team to an outright title and a 10-1 finish.
