The St. Andrews Knights are one of seven new teams in the Mid-South Conference. The conference expanded to 20 teams in 2017 -- the largest collegiate football conference at any level.

News from Lindsey Wilson College
COLUMBIA, KY. - The eighth-ranked Lindsey Wilson football team opens up the 2017 season at 1:30pmCT, Sat 26 Aug 2017, at home against St. Andrews (NC) at Blue Raider Stadium, 928 Russell Road, Columbia, KY.
The Blue Raiders finished the 2016 season with a record of 11-2 which set the program record for most wins in a season. Lindsey Wilson made its third-straight appearance in the NAIA Football Championship Series. The Blue Raiders defeated Grand View (Iowa) in the first round of the playoffs 34-27 in overtime before falling to eventual national runner-up Baker (Kan.) in the national quarterfinals.
Lindsey Wilson averaged 46.7 points and 491.3 yards per game, which ranked sixth and ninth in the NAIA, respectively. Senior quarterback Dylan Beasley returns to lead a high-powered offense in 2017. Last year, Beasley set the program record for passing yards (3,660) and passing touchdowns in a season (36). His 3,660 passing yards were fifth-best in the NAIA a year ago.
Two other keys to the Lindsey Wilson offense are back in 2017, Blake Ingleton and Allen Cooks. Ingleton rushed for 480 yards on 79 carries and nine touchdowns. He also caught eight passes for 96 yards and two touchdowns. Cooks, a First Team Mid-South Conference West Division selection, caught 60 passes for 649 yards and six touchdowns.
The Blue Raiders are led on defense by Trent Mueller and Tony Brackins. Mueller led the team in tackles in 2016 with 90. Brackins, who also earned MSC West Division honors, had 88 tackles with two forced fumbles and three interceptions.
St. Andrews is in its first season of competition with a roster comprised of almost entirely freshmen.
The Knights are one of seven new teams in the Mid-South Conference. The conference expanded to 20 teams in 2017 -- the largest collegiate football conference at any level. To manage the expansion geographically, the conference now hosts three divisions -- the Appalachian, the Bluegrass and the Sun.
Lindsey Wilson calls the Bluegrass home along with familiar foes, Bethel (TN), Campbellsville (KY), Cincinnati Christian (Ohio), Cumberland (TN), Georgetown (KY) and Kentucky Christian
