News from Lindsey Wilson College
COLUMBIA, KY - It's the battle of the unbeatens on Saturday, October 22, 206 as the No. 6-ranked Lindsey Wilson football team hosts No. 3-ranked Reinhardt (GA) in the NAIA Game of the Week at 1pmCT at Blue Raider Stadium, (inside Lindsey Wilson Sports Park, 928 Russell Road, Columbia, KY - CM)
This game is pivotal in the Mid-South Conference West Division standings as both teams are 2-0 with just two conference games left on the slate after Saturday's contest.
The Blue Raiders (8-0, 2-0 MSC West) defeated Faulkner (Ala.) 21-14 the last time out. Dylan Beasley threw for 303 yards and two touchdowns in the victory, his fifth time this season eclipsing the 300-yard mark. Blake Ingleton led the Lindsey Wilson ground game with 35 yards and a touchdown. Hunter Lovell led all receivers with 84 yards on three receptions and Tyrone Stallard had 35 yards. The Blue Raiders' 333 yards of offense were a season-low against a stingy Faulkner defense.
The Lindsey Wilson defense had a strong second half allowing just 101 yards of offense and no points. Leading the Blue Raiders was Trent Mueller with nine tackles and a tackle for loss. Steve Wallace had a season-high eight tackles. Tony Brackins helped seal the victory with an interception with 1:49 left in the game.
The Blue Raiders have the fifth best scoring offense in the NAIA with a 50.8 points per game average. Their 498.6 yards per game is ninth in the NAIA and the 308.8 passing yards per game is also ninth. Beasley has the fourth most passing yards with 2,227 and his 284.6 passing yards per game are ninth in the NAIA.
The Eagles (7-0, 2-0 MSC West) defeated Cumberland (TN) 44-27 on Saturday. Reinhardt racked up a total of 530 yards of offense in the victory. Quarterback Ryan Thompson threw for a season-high 278 yards and had two touchdowns. Dominique Swope had three rushing touchdowns and Qua Stocks had 70 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
The Eagles come into Saturday's matchup with the top offense in the NAIA with 587.3 yards per game. Reinhardt ranks first in the NAIA in four more major statistical categories including, rushing yards per game (403.7), total defense (234.1 yards allowed), scoring defense (8.4 points) and scoring offense (58.0 points).
Saturday's matchup is the fourth all-time meeting between the two schools. Reinhardt holds a 2-1 series edge including 42-24 victory last season in Waleska, Georgia, when both squads entered that game unbeaten as well. Beasley threw for 375 yards and Lovell had 116 receiving yards in that contest.
The Lindsey Wilson football team will show support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month on Saturday as part of an athletics-wide mission along with LWC Relay for Life. The Blue Raiders will don the color pink to help show their support.
