1. Football Begins Road Swing at Elon

[Georgia Southern Football begins a stretch of three straight games on the road, and five of the next six, this Saturday (Sept. 26) at Elon. Kickoff for the Southern Conference contest is scheduled for 1:30 p.m.]


2. Women's Soccer Opens Conference Play this Weekend

[The Georgia Southern women's soccer team (0-7) opens conference play this weekend with matches against Appalachian State (3-4-1) Friday at 7 p.m. and Western Carolina (3-3-2) Sunday at 2 p.m.]

4. GSU volleyball enters SoCon play on a hot streak

[“In some games that we lost, we should have won them looking (at the statistics),” said sophomore hitter Bethany Sanford. “It’s kind of upsetting that it didn’t come out as a win, but at the same time, those games were great games that at any moment could have been in our favor.”]

5. Eagles counting on Mora’s right leg

[“We want our offense to get in rhythm and score touchdowns,” Mora said. “But if it doesn’t, that’s what I’m there for. You come in and expect to kick them. I just want to make this streak as long as I can and make it harder for the next guy.”]


6. Focus factor: Elon looks ahead to challenges of league play

[“But I can’t tell you whether it’s because this is a conference game or because this is Georgia Southern,” the Elon coach said. “Hopefully it’s a little bit of both. This is a big game, one that’s become a rivalry for us. So it takes on a lot of meaning on two levels, I think. And that’s a good thing.”]


7. Chicago Bears remain confident in running game

[Adrian Peterson's 15-yard scamper against the Steelers stands as their longest run play.]


8. Pressure builds on Nationwide Tour

[Blake Adams again gets the nod as the man most likely this week. He has been a model of consistency all season and is already on his way to the PGA Tour but a win would put the icing on the cake. He led nearly all the way last week in Boise before Fran Quinn claimed the title from under his nose.]
