A San Diego victory would give the Toreros a share of the PFL championship. Kickoff at Tenney Stadium is set for noon.

JACQUES NAMED ACADEMIC ALL-DISTRICT: Sophomore RB Max Jacques has been named CoSIDA/Capital One First Team Academic All-District. A Communications major, Jacques was named to the PFL Academic Honor Roll last season.

THREE TO START, THREE TO FINISH: The Red Foxes' final three games this year will all come against teams playing their season finales. Marist opened this season by playing three straight opponents who were having their season openers.

DECEMBER FIRST IS A DECEMBER FIRST: Today's game marks the first time the Red Foxes have played a game in December in program history.

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 first was Rory Foley in 2010.

A MARIST WIN TODAY WOULD ... :

- be its first against San Diego in eight tries.

- give the Red Foxes a .500 mark in PFL play this season.

- be its second straight and third in four games to close the season.

HISTORY WITH SAN DIEGO: This is the eighth all-time meeting between the teams, with the Toreros having won each of the first seven contests. This will be the second meeting between the teams in Poughkeepsie. The last three meetings have been decided by an average margin of 5.7 points, with the Toreros averaging 14.7 points per game. In the first four meetings between the teams, the average margin was 23.3 points, with San Diego averaging 41.8 points per game.

RECORD BROKEN, RECORD TIED, MILESTONE APPROACHING: Fifth-year senior WR Mike Rios has 16 career receiving touchdowns, which is tied with James LaMacchia for the program record in that category. His nine receiving scores this year are a new single-season program record. With 968 receiving yards, Rios is just 32 yards away from joining LaMacchia as the only receivers with 1,000 yards in a season, and 108 away from breaking LaMacchia's single-season record of 1,075 in 2009.

BIG-PLAY THREAT: Of the 16 receiving touchdowns WR Mike Rios has in his career, 12 have covered over 40 yards, nine have been from over 60 yards, and seven have been from over 70 yards. He enters today averaging 23.8 yards per catch in his career. He ranks fifth in program history in receptions (76) and third in program history in receiving yards (1,812), trailing only Guy Smith (2,019) and James LaMacchia (2,485). Additionally, Rios has blocked seven kicks in his career.

RECORDS FOR LOONEY: Junior QB Chuckie Looney has set the program's single-season record with 17 touchdown passes. With 2,088 passing yards, he needs 296 to eclipse the single-season record set by Tommy Reilly in 2010. Looney has also completed 60.6 percent of his passes, trailing only Steve McGrath's (63.2 percent, 2006) single-season mark. With 28 career touchdown passes, he is just one behind James Luft's career record.

RED REALLY MEANS STOP: Marist leads the FCS in Red Zone defense, as opponents have been held scoreless in 16 out of 36 trips inside Marist's 20-yard line. The 20 scores include 13 touchdowns and seven field goals. The 16 scoreless trips include seven turnovers, four loss on downs and five missed field goals.

TURNOVER TURNAROUND: After ranking 117th in the FCS in turnover ratio last year (minus-16), Marist leads the PFL and is ninth in the FCS at plus-9 this year. The Red Foxes have  forced 19 turnovers in their last seven games.

EFFICIENT PASSING: As a team, Marist ranks fourth in the FCS in passing efficiency at 158.28. Individually, junior QB Chuckie Looney ranks third in the FCS at 159.05.

GROUND GAME TAKES OFF: Marist has four 100-yard rushers in its last three games: Max Jacques (128) & Wale Onakoya (110) at Valparaiso, Jacques (102) against Dayton and Onakoya (114) at campbell.

YARDS = WINS: Marist is 4-0 this season when amassing over 400 yards of total offense.

LONG-DISTANCE SCORES: Marist has scored 13 touchdowns of 30 yards or more this season.

JACQUES STEPS UP: Sophomore RB Max Jacques is second on the Red Foxes with 470 rushing yards this season, and 345 of them have come in the last four weeks. Jacques leads Marist in rushing touchdowns (five) and yards per carry (5.9).

REILLY APPROACHES RECORDS: Fifth-year senior QB Tommy Reilly saw his first extended action of the season at Drake on Oct. 20 with starter Chuckie Looney sidelined due to injury. Reilly enters today ranked second all-time behind James Luft in program history in attempts, completions, yards and touchdown passes. Reilly trails Luft by 36 attempts, 13 completions, 197 yards and one touchdown pass.

FEDE HONORED: After a three-sack performance at Campbell on Nov. 17, senior DE Terrence Fede was named PFL Defensive Player of the Week for the second time in his career. Fede also blocked a field goal in the game. He leads Marist with eight sacks and 11.5 tackles for losses this season.
