St. John Fisher visits FSU today

Noon kickoff at Bobcat Stadium against No. 24 Cardinals

FROSTBURG — Frostburg State looks to break a two-game losing streak today when it hosts No. 24 St. John Fisher at Bobcat Stadium.

Kickoff is set for noon.

The Bobcats (3-4 overall, 1-4 Empire 8) avoided being shutout for the second week in a row last week when Ken Emmons hit Hayden Roberts with a 2-yard touchdown pass in a 22-7 home loss to Buffalo State. Junior Chuky Iweh ran for 97 yards on 13 carries to lead the ground game.

St. John Fisher (5-2, 2-2) defeated Ithaca 21-17 for its second Empire 8 victory. Junior running back Cody Miller rushed for 208 yards and three touchdowns — both career-highs — to lead the Cardinals.

St. John Fisher holds a 2-0 all-time series lead over FSU, winning the last meeting 34-7. The two teams will meet in Frostburg for the first time in the series.

Defensively, the Bobcats have forced a turnover in their last eight games, dating back to the 2011 season-finale against Salisbury. Last week, the Bobcats had an interception early in the second quarter to keep the streak alive.

Senior Brendon Blanchette continues to rack up the tackles with nine against Buffalo State. His season total is now at 74 and he had a team-high 17 against Waynesburg.

Sophomore Tavis Henry and sophomore Rowan Pinkett join Blanchette as the only players with double-digit tackles in a game with 12 two weeks ago Hartwick.

In his career, Blanchette has nine double-digit performances and three so far this season.

On offense, senior wide receiver Anthony Young is second in school history with 171 receptions and needs 10 more to tie for first. He is averaging 5.4 catches a game and is in sole possession of seventh in receiving touchdowns (14) and is third in receiving yards (2,100). He has started the last 27 games and has caught a pass in 29-straight games.

Frostburg State is third in the conference in red zone scoring, finding the end zone 16 out of 23 times (70 percent) with 15 touchdowns. The run game has been the most effective with nine of the team’s 14 scores, including five in the opening game against Geneva.

Last season in Rochester, N.Y., St. John Fisher scored 24 unanswered points en route to a 34-7 victory.
