In the season finale, Edinboro once
again has an opportunity to knock off a ranked team in Division II football.
At Sox Harrison Stadium, Edinboro takes on No. 21 Kutztown University today at noon.
The Fighting Scots lost their only other opportunity against a ranked opponent this season last week against Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
The game was a struggle for both offenses. The teams combined for just 224 passing yards and 32 total first downs. When it was all said and done, the Crimson Hawks eked out a 13-6 win at Sox Harrison Stadium.
In the past two weeks, Edinboro has struggled on offense. The Fighting Scots have just 20 total points in their last two games.
They’ll need more offense today. A good place to start is with running back Walter Fletcher. On 240 attempts, Fletcher has 1,504 yards and 16 touchdowns. He’s averaging 150.4 yards per game this season.
Andrew Tomko has started the most games for Edinboro at quarterback. He’s 81-for-170 for 1,265 yards. He has 10 TDs and 13 INTs this season.
Last week, Jarrod Kellar got the nod for Edinboro. Kellar struggled, throwing three interceptions in the loss. On the year, Kellar is 69-for-145 for 771 yards, seven TDs and nine INTs.
Kutztown’s attack begins with Collin DiGalbo at quarterback. DiGalbo has been efficient this season, completing 136 of 204 passes for 1,869 yards. He has 12 TD passes and just three interceptions.
DiGalbo spreads the ball around to the wide receivers. Conor Sullivan, Craig Reynolds, Jack Pilkerton and Amadou Barry all have over 300 yards receiving. Sullivan leads the group with 465 yards.
At running back, Craig Reynolds has 693 rushing yards and 13 scores. DiGalbo factors in with eight rushing TDs and 360 yards on the ground.
Edinboro leads the all-time series with Kutztown narrowly at 5-4. The Golden Bears, however, have won the last two matchups.
