Hitting the road for one of the biggest games in their program’s history, No. 2 Iowa Western will continue their national title defense Saturday at No. 5
Georgia Military.

The top five matchup could turn into a ground battle as two of the top running backs in the nation square-off. Georgia Military freshman Jovon Robinson leads the country with 181.4 rushing yards per game and 12 touchdowns on the ground this season. On the other side of the ball, Reivers sophomore Akise Teague ranks fourth in the land with 124.3 yards rushing per game.

Despite both offenses presenting high-caliber running games, Iowa Western
has an edge at quarterback. Sophomore Connor Brevard has thrown for 761 yards and eight touchdowns in 2013 without an interception. Bulldogs freshman Pat Thomas has 563 yards and five touchdowns through the air this season but has fallen victim to five interceptions.

Defensively, both squads rank in the top 15 in points allowed. Iowa Western’s defense ranks second in the nation, allowing just 5.4 points per game. Georgia Military has given up just 15.2 points per game in 2013 and ranks first in the country with 10 forced fumbles.
