SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -  The Sioux City Bandits play the Wichita Wild in Champions Bowl II on Saturday. The Bandits went undefeated for two years in their previous league, winning titles in 2011 and 2012. Wichita is looking for back-to-back titles in the Champions Professional Indoor Football League.

The Bandits loaded up the bus Friday afternoon to make the six-hour drive to Wichita. Sioux City split their two games with the Wild during the regular season, winning by three points and losing by five.

Wichita is the top seed and the Bandits are second, so they'll decide who's really number-one on the field.

"It's a championship game. You can't hold anything back for this one," said quarterback Scott Jensen. "We're going to come out there and do what we do on offense. The defense is going to take care of their offense and we're going to come out on top."

"Obviously we would have loved to have that number one seed and play here but if there's any place I'd love to win a championship and break a 20-game winning streak and win it down there," said head coach Erv Strohbeen.

"We're not in this situation because we don't know how to be here," said linebacker Marlon Lobban. "We're in this situation because this is what we planned for and that's what we expect. It's championship or bust."

The title game kicks off at 7 o'clock on Saturday night.
