WHO: Brevard College at Newberry College
WHERE: Historic Setzler Field on the campus of Newberry College
WHEN: 3 p.m. on Saturday, October 24
RECORDS: Newberry is 3-4 overall and 1-3 in the South Atlantic Conference. Brevard is 0-7 overall and 0-3 in SAC play
LIVE VIDEO: http://www.NewberryWolves.tv
LIVE AUDIO: http://www.NewberryWolves.tv, WKDK-AM 1240 in Newberry County
LIVE STATS: http://www.NewberryStats.com
WEATHER FORECAST: Sunny with a high of 71 degrees. Low winds are anticipated. 

SPECIAL EVENTS

  • Newberry College corporate sponsor South State Bank is the presenting sponsor of Saturday's game.
  • The City of Newberry's Oktoberfest festival will be taking place downtown throughout the day. (More information on Oktoberfest events released Wednesday)
  • This game has also been designated as First Responders' Day and Scout Day.

NEWS AND NOTES

  • The Newberry College Wolves look to snap a three-game losing streak and get back to .500 for the season this Saturday when they host the winless Brevard Tornados.
  • This is game number 998 for the scarlet and gray in season No. 102. Newberry has a 412-549-36 record.
  • The relatively new series began in 2006, and the scarlet and gray won the first six matchups and didn’t allow a touchdown in the first five.
  • This is Brevard’s last scheduled visit to Setzler Field, as the Tornados are slated to move to Division III following the 2016-17 academic year. Newberry has won all five meetings at Setzler.
  • This is the second of three straight games for the Wolves against teams with a triple-option rushing attack.
  • A win would snap Newberry’s first three-game losing streak since 2012. Newberry has not lost four consecutive games since a six-game losing streak in the middle of the 2004 season.
  • A 100-yard rushing performance today by any Newberry player would make this the most prolific season in that category. The 1970 Indians and 2008 Newberry team each had nine 100-yard individual games. Romelo Doctor tied that record in game seven of the 2015 season with 105 yards at Carson-Newman.
  • Conversely, Brevard runs the ball 56 times a game - 89.1% of its plays - and does not have a 100-yard individual performance this year.
  • In the “something has to give” category, each team ranks in the top 10 nationally in time of possession. Brevard has led TOP in six of seven games, while Newberry has led TOP in every game this year.
  • Running back Romelo Doctor is on pace to become just the 11th Newberry player to ever rush for 1,000 yards in a single season. He has 725 yards so far this year and ranks third in the conference and 37th nationally in rushing yards.
  • Quarterback Raleigh Yeldell became the fourth Newberry quarterback to go over 1,000 career rushing yards. He is at 1,002 yards. Tim Singleton’s 1,413 career yards is the most quarterback rushing yards in a Newberry career.

BLOCK PARTY

  • 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’ six blocked kicks, two were punts, one was an attempted PAT and three were field goal attempts.
