NEWBERRY – Newberry plays host to new South Atlantic Conference rival Limestone on Saturday afternoon as part of Homecoming weekend on the Newberry College campus.

The Wolves have never lost to Limestone, outscoring the Saints by a total of 166-34 in the three previous meetings. Newberry will look to rebound after suffering its first conference loss in 729 days last Saturday to Tusculum in double overtime.

Newberry will wear scarlet jerseys and pants for the game. Fans are asked to wear scarlet as well.

Newberry will be accepting monetary donations as part of a "Change for Change" initiative at the gates this Saturday. Fans can donate spare change (or bills), with proceeds being donated to former Newberry dining hall staffer Krystal Lopez to help defray medical costs.

1. Tusculum’s double-overtime win last week snapped Newberry’s school-record 12-game conference winning streak, the sixth-longest such streak in South Atlantic Conference history. The loss represented Newberry’s first to a SAC opponent in 729 days.

2. Newberry’s defense has not allowed a 250-yard passer in 18 games or a 100-yard receiver in 17 games. Florida Tech’s Mark Cato threw for 298 yards in the 2016 season opener, while Virginia Union’s Lavatiae Kelly had 116 yards receiving a week later. Tusculum’s Alex Ogle (224 yards) was the first opposing quarterback to break the 200-yard barrier since Sept. 10, 2016.

3. Markell Castle broke into the top five in career touchdown receptions with his 15th and 16th against Tusculum and now ranks third in school history with eight 100-yard receiving games. His 1,550 career yards place him four yards shy of sole possession of ninth place on the school’s all-time receiving yardage list despite totaling four receptions, 25 yards, and one touchdown as a freshman.

4. Castle’s 20.33 yards per catch in 2017 rank second in a single season among receivers with at least 10 catches since Newberry began keeping computerized statistical records in 1997 and is 19th in Division II this season. His eight touchdown catches are sixth in Division II. Of his 27 receptions this season, 24 have gone for a first down or a touchdown, including all 10 of his receptions on third down.

5. Keito Jordon’s six sacks are second in the SAC behind nine from Catawba’s Kyle Kitchens, while his 0.86 sacks per game rank 18th in Diviion II. The 52 yards lost on those sacks trail Kitchens’ total for the league lead by four yards.

6. The 114 rushing yards by Greg Ruff against Tusculum are the most by a Newberry player since Raleigh Yeldell rushed for 141 at North Greenville on Sept. 23, 2016 and marked Newberry’s second 100-yard rushing game of the season.

7. Out of 71 carries this season, Austin Barnes has been brought down behind the line of scrimmage just four times.
