SCOUTING JACKSONVILLE: Jacksonville enters today's game having won three straight, including its PFL opener at Dayton last Saturday by a score of 21-17. After Dayton took a late 17-14 lead, Jacksonville's Colby Walden returned the ensuing kickoff 85 yards for a touchdown with 1:23 left to propel the Dolphins to victory. Jacksonville lost nine starters on offense from last year's team, but bring back eight defensively. The Dolphins have allowed just 37 points in their current winning streak. Taylor Marsh and Tre Davis each have a team-high 21 tackles, and Mike Mayoral leads Jacksonville with three-and-a-half sacks.

MEET THE CAPTAINS: Marist has four captains on this year's team. Three are seniors on the defensive side of the ball - linebacker Mike Hagemann, safety Nick Mainiero and safety Tyler Ramsey. The Red Foxes' lone captain on the offensive side of the ball is quarterback Chuckie Looney, who is just the second true junior to be named captain in Jim Parady's 21 seasons as head coach. The first was Rory Foley in 2010.

A MARIST WIN TODAY WOULD ... :

- give the Red Foxes a winning record heading into October for the first time since 2005.

- improve its all-time PFL road record to 7-6.

- even its all-time record against Jacksonville at 2-2.

- be its first back-to-back wins since winning six straight in 2009.

HISTORY WITH JACKSONVILLE: This is the fourth all-time meeting between the Red Foxes and Dolphins. Marist won the first game on a touchdown pass in the closing seconds from Chris Debowski to Kevin Fitzpatrick on a 4th-and-12 in 2009. The Dolphins have prevailed the last two seasons.

RECORD-SHATTERING RECEIVING: WR Mike Rios set a program record with 244 receiving yards, and tied a program record with three receiving touchdowns - becoming the third Red Fox to accomplish that feat - vs. Davidson on Sept. 22 It was the first 200-yard receiving game in the PFL since 2008, and highest yardage total since 2003. Entering this week, the total is the fourth-highest by an FCS receiver this season. Rios was named PFL Offensive Player of the Week, and earned a College Football Performance Award.

BIG-PLAY THREAT: WR Mike Rios has 10 receiving touchdowns in his career. Eight have covered over 40 yards, six have been from over 60 yards, and four have been from over 70 yards. He enters today averaging 23.1 yards per catch in his career, and currently ranks fourth in program history with 1,275 career receiving yards. Additionally, Rios has blocked seven kicks in his career.

LOONEY AIRS IT OUT: QB Chuckie Looney had the second 400-yard passing day in Marist history when he threw for 403 yards vs. Davidson on Sept. 22. He also became the fourth Red Fox in program history to throw four touchdown passes in a game. Looney earned a College Football Performance Award for his efforts.

TOP-10 NUMBERS: QB Chuckie Looney enters this week ranked fifth in the FCS in passing efficiency and seventh in total offense, while leading Marist to a team ranking of eighth in passing offense.

LOTS OF OFFENSE: Marist rolled up 550 yards of total offense vs. Davidson on Sept. 22 (403 passing, 147 rushing), its largest output since also having 550 yards at Valparaiso on Oct. 9, 2010.

FORCED SOME TURNOVERS, TOO: Marist forced five turnovers (three fumbles, two interceptions) against Davidson on Sept. 22 after forcing three in the first three games of the season.

MARGINS (PART I): Marist's two victories this season have come by a combined total of 39 points, but its two losses have been by a combined total of three points.

MARGINS (PART II): Marist has outscored the opposition 95-60 this season, and has a positive scoring margin in each quarter (24-7 first, 30-20 second, 21-17 third, 20-16 fourth).

TOUCHBACKS FOR MYERS: Senior Jason Myers has led the PFL in touchbacks each of the previous two seasons. Myers had 25 touchbacks in 2010 and 2011, and was named Honorable Mention All-PFL both years. Myers registered 10 touchbacks in 18 kickoffs so far this season, and has twice as many touchbacks as any other PFL kicker.

FUN WITH SCHEDULES: Marist's first three games this season (at Bryant, Sept. 1; vs. Bucknell, Sept. 8; at Columbia, Sept. 15) all came against teams playing their season openers. Davidson had a bye on Sept. 15, the week prior to its game at Marist. Although Jacksonville played at Dayton on Sept. 22, both Marist and Butler have a bye before their Oct. 13 contest - meaning five of Marist's six opponents did play the week prior to facing the Red Foxes.
