COLUMBIA, KY - Fourth-ranked Lindsey Wilson football hosts fifth-ranked Southern Oregon at 1pmCT on Saturday, November 25, 2017, in the NAIA Football Championship Series Quarterfinals at Blue Raider Stadium, 928 Russell Road, Columbia, KY
The Blue Raiders (11-0) are hosting the quarterfinals for the first time in the program's history. It marks the third appearance in the final eight for Lindsey Wilson. The Blue Raiders won last week's FCS first-round game 63-49 over No. 9 Southeastern (FL).
Southern Oregon comes to Columbia after defeating No. 13 Dickinson State (ND) 55-24 at home last Saturday. The Raiders (11-0) are making the program's seventh FCS appearance. They are 11-5 all-time in the NAIA playoffs, including winning the 2014 national championship.
Lindsey Wilson boasts one of the top offenses in the NAIA this season -- averaging 49.7 points and 462.6 yards per game.
Dylan Beasley leads the Blue Raider offense with 33 touchdown tosses against just three interceptions. On the ground, Blake Ingleton is coming off the best rushing game in Lindsey Wilson history. He ran for 241 yards and five touchdowns -- which tied a FCS record -- en route to earning Offensive Player of the Game in the win over Southeastern.
Tony Brackins, Joe Lewis and Trent Mueller lead the Blue Raider defense. The trio combines for nearly 250 tackles, including 15-1/2 tackles for a loss this season.
After facing the top scoring offense in the NAIA last week, the Blue Raider defense will once again be tested.
Southern Oregon enters Saturday's game averaging 37.4 points per game and 487.5 yards per outing. Raider quarterback Tanner Trosin headlines the SOU offense, throwing for 350 yards per game. His top target is Bronsen Ader, who has 50 catches for 853 yard and four touchdowns this season.
The Southern Oregon defense leads the NAIA this season with 50-1/2 sacks and 4.6 sacks per game. The Raider defense yields just 19.5 points per game -- ninth best in the NAIA.
Saturday's matchup is the only quarterfinal game that features two unbeaten teams. The winner advances to next week's Football Championship Series Semifinals.
Live video will be available on the Lindsey Wilson Sports Network for $10. Kickoff for the NAIA Football Championship Series Quarterfinal matchup is scheduled for 1pmCT, Saturday, November 25, 2017, at Blue Raider Stadium, 928 Russell Road, Columbia, KY.
