1. Women's Soccer Edged by Elon

[The Georgia Southern women's soccer team (0-10-0, 0-3-0) out shot Elon 10-7 but was edged 1-0. The match was the fourth decided by one goal this season.]


2. Eagles Victorious on Opening Day of Seminole Invitational

[The opening day of the Seminole Invitational saw singles victories from a pair of returners on the Georgia Southern men’s tennis team. Senior Justin Flynn and sophomore Alain Garrido both notched singles victories in their respective draws of the fall tournament hosted by Florida State University.]


3. Brent Russell Earns Second UPC “Lineman of the Week” Honor

[Georgia Southern fans voted Brent Russell Utilities Protection Center "Lineman of the Week" for his performance in the September 24th Eagles game at Elon.]


4. Cross Country Sets Five Personal Bests in the Charlotte Invitational

[Sara Curry (Lawrenceville, Ga.), Morgan Jefferson (Villa Rica, Ga.), Brittani Martin (Alpharetta, Ga.), Heather McAllister (Cartersville, Ga.) and Azura Robillard (Altamonte Springs, Fla.) set personal bests to lead the Georgia Southern cross country team to a 15th place finish in the Charlotte Invitational.]


5. Eagles, Terriers looking to stop slides

["Offensively, we'll have to find a way to get some kind of rhythm or we'll have a long day against Wofford," Hatcher said.]


6. Pasco, Eagles preaching patience

[“It’s a pretty big game,” Pasco said. “We need to let it go. We need to do what we can to get a win. Every game from here on out we have to win. You never want to be under .500 in conference play. If we can come out of this one 2-1, it would be a great accomplishment.”]


7. Ayers: Homecoming no distraction

[“If you can’t focus on your job,” he said, “if you’re more worried about the homecoming king or what’s happening at the fraternity house, you shouldn’t be playing. I hope our guys understand how important the game is and understand that we still have a shot to have a great year. We can’t wait another week. Our job is to get ready for Georgia Southern. That means not being distracted by anything.”]


8. Terriers happy to be back home, hope to right ship

[“There’s nothing we can do about Chattanooga,” Ayers said. “What we can do something about is Georgia Southern. That’s what our focus is on. If I’m always looking back, I’m not running as fast as I can.”]


9. 5 state college football storylines

[What's going on at Wofford? The Terriers are off to a 1-3 start, their worst since 2006, when they managed to rebound and finish the season at 7-4. The three losses have been by 29 or more points, which is not a good sign. And last week's output of nine points against Chattanooga in the conference opener was the team's lowest since 2006. The offense managed only 226 yards and had three turnovers in the 38-9 drubbing. Georgia Southern (2-2, 1-1) comes to town looking to repeat last season's win. While it is the first time Wofford has fallen out of the rankings since 2006, the focus must remain on getting a win today.]


10. Elon's mantra: Repeat week to week

[So intense were the collisions that last week’s clash with Georgia Southern left Elon University football coach Pete Lembo referencing the epic gladiator movie “Spartacus.” “I can’t remember a game in our three-plus years now that was as physical as that game,” he said this week. “Just the hitting down on the field was incredible. So to come out on the top end of that and to get a win was very meaningful for our team, for our program.” Congrats, Elon. Job well done indeed.]


11. College locals: Oct. 2, 2009

[Cole Gordon (Naples), Georgia Southern, freshman, wide receiver, No. 87 — Gordon didn’t play in last week's 28-14 loss to Elon.]


12. NFC North report

[Bears RB Adrian Peterson is averaging 5.6 yards per carry on his five attempts, and he has the longest run by a Bears player (15 yards).]


13. What they said: Aron Price

[Q. Aron, great 65. What did you learn between yesterday and today? ARON PRICE: It was actually unbelievable. I was 2-over through five yesterday. I've been quite sick and I've lost a lot of strength. I said today, this is crap. I'm just going to shoot two 80s and get out of here, and my coach is coming next week, so let's just relax. But it was unbelievable. I cannot believe I did that. I putted so well. I haven't been putting well all year, but today I putted great.]


14. Scott four shots back in New York

[Aron Price hit the equal best score of the round, a 7 under-par 65, to be the best placed Australian, three shots behind the leader.]


15. Ormsby in the hunt

[Meanwhile, Aron Price is also flying the Australian flag high at the Turning Stone Resort Championship in Verona, New York. Price is only three shots adrift off pacesetter Vaughn Taylor after the second round. The Australian started the day even in equal 57th position but by the end of it was in a share of eighth spot thanks to a seven-under 65 which was the equal-best score of the second round. Price's sparkling round two eight birdies and only the one blemish in the form of a bogey at the 16th.]


16. Turner one clear at Soboba Classic
