Notes:  Lake Erie looks for its second straight victory when it travels to Malone University for the first of two consecutive road games… the Storm is coming off a commanding 48-21 victory over nonconference rival Notre Dame College on Saturday. In that game, Lake Erie set school records with 406 rushing and 687 total yards of offense and built a 42-7 halftime lead… sophomore RB Anthony Bilal (Painesville, Ohio/Riverside) ran 31 times for a school, single-game record 235 yards and scored three times running his season totals to 948 yards and 14 touchdowns. He is just 52 yards shy of becoming the school's first single-season 1,000-yard rusher and is only 131 yards away from the all-time LEC rushing mark… redshirt senior QB Brendan Gallagher (Aurora, Ohio/Aurora) threw for 281 yards and three TDs in the win over the Falcons while also adding a 56-yard touchdown run. He is 11th nationally in completion percentage (68%) and 21st in total offense… Stacy Woodford (Dublin, Ohio/Dublin Coffman) had eight tackles and picked off his fifth career interception, most ever at LEC… Lake Erie is looking to snap a two-game GLIAC losing streak, a three-game road losing streak and a three-game night-game losing streak this week… Malone has lost all six games this season, but the last three games have been decided by 11 points or less. Malone got 100-yard rushing efforts last week from both Bryce Pratt and Justin Davis last week in its 38-28 loss to rival Walsh.
