PAGE 6

Opponent Record Samford 11-13-1 VMI 3-1 W. Carolina 2-2 Wofford 6-4

Mercer totaled 575 yards and dominated the final three quarters of play en route to a 49-14 Southern Conference victory over VMI at Five Star Stadium on Sept. 30, 2017. The Bears notched their first conference win of the season largely due to the 575 total yards, which were the second most in a single game in program history (623 vs. Stetson on Sept. 12, 2015). Mercer also tallied three interceptions – two by Stephen Houzah and one by Travonte' Easley, which was returned for a touchdown – to dominate the Keydets.

SCOUTING VMI Despite being winless this season (0-4) and since Oct. 8, 2016, the Keydets are coming off a pair of closely-fought Southern Conference contests against ETSU (27-24) and Western Carolina (5250). VMI owns the 12th-ranked passing offense in the FCS, led by sophomore quarterback Reece Udinkski (1,128 passing yards).

MR. 100 Mercer's Bobby Lamb, who is in his 15th season as a head coach, won his 100th career game vs. Jacksonville on Sept. 8. Lamb is fourth in league history with 91 wins as a SoCon coach, as he was 10-2 in 2013, when the Bears were members of the Pioneer Football League. Lamb is in his sixth season at Mercer and fifth since the Bears joined the SoCon. His first nine seasons as a head coach were spent at Furman. SoCon Wins Leaders 1. Jerry Moore (Appalachian State) 2. Wallace Wade (Alabama, Duke) 3. Mike Ayers (ETSU, Wofford) 4. Bobby Lamb (Furman, Mercer) 5. D.C. Walker (Wake Forest)

RECORD BREAKER Marquise Irvin, who hauled in his 14th career touchdown reception at Memphis, now needs just three scores to become Mercer's all-time leader in touchdown catches. The record is currently owned by Chandler Curtis (16). Irvin is Mercer's career leader in receiving yards (1,862) & receptions (143). The senior leads Mercer with 23 receptions for 351 yards (87.7 yards per game) this season. Irvin has caught at least five passes for 71 yards in each contest.

#TEETIME Senior running back Tee Mitchell surpassed 2,000 career rushing yards on Sept. 8 with a 118-yard performance vs. Jacksonville. Mitchell is the third

player in program history (Alex Lakes, John Russ) with at least 2,000 career rushing yards. Mitchell needs just 342 rushing yards this season to become Mercer's all-time rushing yards leader (2,604). Mitchell has also rushed for more than 100 yards twice this season, giving him eight career 100-yard rushing performances. No other active SoCon player has more than four such games in their careers.

Andre Stoddard, Wofford, Sr. 2 T-3. Joe Newman, Wofford, Jr. 2

HOUZ-YA DADDY With touchdown receptions in each of the last three games, senior Stephen Houzah has seperated himself from the rest of the SoCon. Houzah, who switched to wide receiver this season after playing cornerback for three years, is the only active SoCon player with at least one career touchdown reception (3) and one career interception (6). He is currently tied atop Mercer's record book for most career interceptions (6), two of which were recorded in Mercer's win vs. VMI last season.

ONE-TWO PUNCH Running backs Tee Mitchell and Tyray Devezin have already emerged as a dynamic 1-2 punch on the ground for Mercer, just two games into the season. Mitchell (5-10, 204) and Devezin (5-8, 233) have been dubbed lightning & thunder, respectively, after both tallied 100-yard rushing performances vs. Jacksonville on Sept. 8. The teammates became the first Mercer duo to both rush for 100 yards in a single game since Mitchell did the same with Alex Lakes on Nov. 14, 2015 at Furman.

BACK IN THE SADDLE Sophomore Kaelan Riley will start at quarterback for Mercer this week after redshirt freshman Robert Riddle suffered a broken collarbone at the end of last week's loss to The Citadel. Riley, who was named the 2017 SoCon Freshman of the Year and a finalist for the STATS FCS Jerry Rice Award, entered the 2018 season in competition with Riddle for the starting job before Riddle earned the spot before a win at #9 Samford on Sept. 15. A native of Calhoun, Ga., Riley has completed 12of-18 passes for 56 yards and one touchdown this season. He tossed a career-high 318 passing yards and three touchdowns in Mercer's win vs. VMI last season.

PAGE 7 Riddle, meanwhile, is out indefinitely with the collarbone injury. He was named SoCon Offensive Player of the Week for his 316 passing yards and three total touchdowns at #9 Samford in Week 3 and followed it up by setting Mercer's single-game passing record of 347 yards vs. The Citadel last week before suffering the injury.

RED MEANS GO Mercer is 16-for-17 (13 touchdowns) when reaching the red zone on offense so far this season. It is a trend that has carried over from last season, when Mercer ranked fifth nationally in red zone offense, scoring on 91.4 percent of its trips (32-for-35), including 25 touchdowns.

WALKER RETURNS Redshirt senior tight end Sam Walker made his season debut at Samford after missing Mercer's first two games with an ankle injury. In two games since his return, Walker has tallied four receptions for 15 yards. Walker was named to the 2018 Preseason All-SoCon Team and owns 79 receptions, 803 receiving yards and seven touchdown catches for his career.

FRESH IMPACT Thanks to the NCAA's new redshirt rule (players can appear in four games and still earn a redshirt), Mercer has had multiple freshmen see action through two games this season. The most immediate impact has come from a pair of freshman receivers, David Durden and Tony Jones II. Durden caught five passes for 50 yards and his first career touchdown vs. The Citadel last week. Jones II's first career reception was a touchdown at Memphis and he ranks third on the team with nine receptions.

PRO BALL TO THE SOCON

MERCER FOOTBALL 2018 Countdown show. Durden's snag was also named the fourth-best play of the week by FCS Football.

ICE COLD Senior kicker Cole Fisher tied a career-high with three made field goals in Mercer's upset win over #9 Samford on Sept. 15. Fisher was successful on his lone attempt vs. The Citadel (Sept. 22) and has made four straight. He has 29 made field goals in 42 attempts during his career.

THUNDER DOWN UNDER Mercer's starting punter, Matt Shiel, is the definition of a journeyman. A native of Doncaster, Australia, Shiel played his freshman year (2014) at Auburn before transferring to Mercer for the 2015 season, when he earned All-SoCon Second Team honors. Shiel then left Mercer, returning home to Australia where he enrolled at Victoria University (Melbourne, Australia) for two years, but did not compete. With 2018 Preseason All-SoCon honors to his name, Shiel has made 15 punts for an average of 42.8 yards, including a season-best 54-yarder.

BAILEY HONORED Senior linebacker LeMarkus Bailey was announced as a semifinalist for the 2018 William V. Campbell Trophy by the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame (NFF). The award recognizes the best football scholar-athlete in the nation. Bailey earned his undergraduate degree in English in spring 2018 and is currently pursuing his Masters of Education at Mercer. Bailey is a three-time Southern Conference Honor Roll selection and has served as a two-time captain (2017-18). With 36 starts in 39 career games played, Bailey ranks fourth in program history with 184 total tackles and earned All-Southern Conference honors in 2017.

Freshman wide receiver David Durden took a unique road to arriving at Mercer. Originally a member of Mercer's 2017 signing class, Durden chose to pursue a career in professional baseball when he was selected by the Boston Red Sox in the 20th round of the 2017 MLB First-Year Player Draft.

Bailey is a member of Mercer's Phi Eta Sigma chapter and is heavily involved at Howard High School as a student teacher, student mentor and tutor, with a focus on after-school programming in the school's English curriculum.

Durden, a native of Midville, Ga., played 30 games in the Red Sox's system in the Gulf Coast League and batted .220 with nine RBI and seven runs scored before voluntarily retiring and shifting his focus back to college football.

BENNETT SIGNS CFL DEAL

YOU GOT MOSSED! David Durden had a claim-to-fame moment on Sunday morning when his game-tying, 8-yard touchdown reception vs. The Citadel was used on Hall of Fame wide receiver Randy Moss' TV segment, "You Got Mossed!" on ESPN's Sunday NFL

Former Mercer inside linebacker Lee Bennett signed a two-year contract with the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League (CFL) on Sept. 10, making him the first Mercer football alumnus to sign a professional deal. Bennett will start his career on the Lions' practice squad. A native of Leesburg, Fla., Bennett starred for Mercer from 2014-17. He was a team captain in 2017 and a three-year starter with 33 starts in 44 games played. Bennett set a program single-season record with 110 tackles as a senior and graduated with a degree in finance.

#comMUnity Beware the Bears' Den. When the Bears are active, there is a deafening roar from its #comMUnity. The support has made Five Star Stadium one of the toughest places to play in the FCS; Mercer is an impressive 23-9 at home since 2013. Mercer at Five Star Stadium

MERCER FOOTBALL 2018

BOBBY LAMB - HEAD COACH Since guiding the Bears through a return to the gridiron in 2013, following a 72-year hiatus, Bobby Lamb has continued to build the Mercer football program into a focal point of Macon and the surrounding Middle Georgia communities.

Lamb enters his sixth season as Mercer’s head football coach in 2018 and will lead a squad that returns 18 starters from the year prior and placed eight student-athletes on the 2018 Preseason All-Southern Conference team. Named the 19th head football coach in program history in 2011, Lamb led the Bears to immediate success in their first season of action in 2013, claiming the third 10-win season of his coaching career and setting the NCAA Division I record for wins by a first-year program with a 10-2 campaign. Since 2013 he has led Mercer to wins against three nationally-ranked FCS teams, including No. 3 Chattanooga in 2015. During his tenure guiding Furman’s program, Lamb had a 6740 record (.626) as its head coach. He led the Paladins to winning records in eight of his nine seasons and made four trips to the NCAA I-AA (now Football Championship Series) playoffs, reaching the quarterfinals in 2004 and the semifinals in 2005. Lamb is a 1982 graduate of Commerce (Ga.) High School and went on to earn his B.A. in health and exercise science from Furman in 1987. He also earned his M.Ed. degree from Furman in health and exercise science in 1992. Lamb, who was born on Christmas Eve in 1962, is married to the former Allyson Acker. The couple has two children: a daughter, Sallie, and a son, Taylor.
