THE MATCH-UP: The Marist football team (2-4 overall, 1-2 PFL) makes its first of back-to-back trips to the Central Time Zone as it faces Drake (5-2, 4-0). Kickoff at Drake Stadium/Johnny Bright Field is set for 2 p.m. EDT.

The game can also be listened to for free on GoRedFoxes.com and the iHeartRadio app. For live game updates, check the official Twitter account of Marist Athletics (@MaristAthletics).

FOUR GAMES, ZERO LOSSES: This is Marist's fourth PFL game of the season, and its fourth straight against a team without a loss in league play. The Red Foxes' contest against Davidson was the PFL opener for both teams, Jacksonville was 1-0 heading into the Sept. 29 game, Butler was 3-0 heading into the Oct. 13 contest, and Drake currently stands at 4-0.

SCOUTING DRAKE: The Bulldogs come into today's contest having won four straight, with league victories against Morehead State, Campbell, preseason favorite San Diego and Valparaiso. In all five of Drake's wins this year, the Bulldogs have scored between 28 and 38 points. The team's only two losses are to Montana State and Indiana State, who are ranked fi fth and 21st, respectively, in The Sports Network FCS Top 25 College Football Poll this week.

MEET THE CAPTAINS: Marist has four captains on this year's team. Three are seniors on defense - linebacker Mike Hagemann, safety Nick Mainiero and safety Tyler Ramsey. The Red Foxes' lone captain on offense 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 fi rst was Rory Foley in 2010.

A MARIST WIN TODAY WOULD ... :

- give the Red Foxes a .500 record all-time in road PFL games (7-7).

- be its first against Drake in four tries.

- snap a two-game losing streak.

HISTORY WITH DRAKE: This is the fourth all-time meeting between the teams, with the Bulldogs having won the first three contests. This is the second game between the teams in Des Moines.

RUSH TO VICTORY: Marist has held the opposition to under 85 yards rushing in both of its wins, but the opponent  has gained at least 120 in all of its losses. Meanwhile, the Red Foxes have rushed for over 140 yards in both of their wins, but have been held under 115 in their four losses.

BIG-PLAY THREAT: WR Mike Rios has 11 receiving touchdowns in his career. Nine have covered over 40 yards, six have been from over 60 yards, and four have been from over 70 yards. He enters today averaging 22.8 yards per catch in his career, and currently ranks fourth in program history with 1,367 career receiving yards. Additionally, Rios has blocked seven kicks in his career.

FORCING PLENTY OF TURNOVERS: After forcing three turnovers in the first three games, Marist has forced nine turnovers in its last three contests. The Red Foxes forced five against Davidson on Sept. 22, and three at Jacksonville on Sept. 29. All three turnovers forced at Jacksonville came inside the Marist 10-yard line. Marist is plus-3 in turnover ratio this season after going minus-16 last year.

LINEBACKERS ON THE STOPS: Marist's starting linebacker trio of Mike Hagemann, Darius Hill and Paul Sakowski rank first, second and third on the team in tackles with 47, 38 and 37, respectively. Hagemann's 13 stops against Butler were the highest total by a Red Fox this season.

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 has registered 12 touchbacks in 24 kickoffs so far this season,

MARGINS: Marist's two victories this season have come by a combined total of 39 points, but its four losses have been by a combined total of 18 points. Marist has lost three games by three points or less.
