WEATHER FORECAST: Sunny with a high of 60 degrees. Low winds are anticipated. No chance of rain at this point.

• The Newberry College Wolves head to East Tennessee and Mossy Creek to take on the Carson-Newman Eagles this Saturday.
• This is game number 997 for the scarlet and gray in season No. 102. Newberry has a 412-548-36 record.
• The Wolves and Eagles have been playing each other off and on since 1940, and the game has been one of the most entertaining matchups of the year for the past few seasons.
• Newberry is coming off of two rain-marred losses, but will be buoyed by optimism in the second half of the season.
• The Wolves’ offense will look for some pop after consistent performances which have not resulted in points. The defense is in the top third of the nation in every category.
• Statistics show that Newberry offense will most likely find success on the ground. The Wolves rank 13th nationally in rushing yardage and have had eight 100-yard individual performances in the season’s first six games. Conversely, the Eagles rank 7th from bottom nationally in rushing yards allowed.
• While the Newberry defense has been strong all year, getting back over .500 will require discipline, as this is the first of three straight games against option-based attacks.
• The Wolves are the only team in the conference to face the three option teams in consecutive weeks this season.
• The last four games between the team have featured hot starts by the eventual winners, including Raleigh Yeldell accounting for four touchdowns in the first quarter last season.
• Newberry’s last win in Jefferson City was the polar opposite of those games, as the Wolves won 24-3 in 2011, holding C-N without a touchdown for the first time in the matchup since 1985.
• This is C-N’s fifth straight conference game, with big wins over Mars Hill and Brevard, a tight loss to Catawba and a blowout loss to Lenoir-Rhyne.

• Newberry ranks in a tie for sixth nationally in blocked kicks this season after blocking two punts and a field goal in the North Greenville game.
• Of the Wolves’ five blocked kicks, two were punts and three were field goal attempts.

• Newberry College senior punter Kyle Clark ranks fifth amongst all current Division II punters in career punting average.
• His 40.3 average per punt also ranks 60th amongst all NCAA punters in career punt average.
• With a minimum of 100 punts, Clark is the active current leader for all South Carolina punters.
• For the season, Clark averages 43.2 yards per punt, which ranks eighth in Division II.
• Clark has also been excellent in changing the field position of the game throughout his entire career.
• In his three years as the punter, Clark has placed 57 punts inside the opponents’ 20-yardline, including 30 such boots last year.
• Of punters with a career average over 38 yards in Division II (there are 14 of those guys), Clark is tied for first over the past three years. Clark, Western State Colorado’s Dakota Swinehart and St. Joseph’s (Ind.)’s Marcin Gawlak have 57, while Angelo State’s Sam Fowler has 54.

• Newberry senior linebacker Taylor McDonnell is currently second in the conference in solo tackles, with 33 of his 40 total tackles coming as solo stops.
• He ranks 15th in the league in total tackles and fourth in sacks and sack yardage.

• During his 52-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter of the win over North Greenville, Newberry junior running back Romelo Doctor went over 1,000 yards rushing for his career.
• Going into the Carson-Newman contest, Doctor has 271 carries for 1,410 yards and 12 touchdowns. He averages 5.2 yards per carry.
• With his 150-yard game against Mars Hill, he now ranks eighth in school history with six games of 100-plus rushing yards.
• Doctor is approaching the top 10 in the school records for career rushing yardage.
