Peppers in his freshman season has been a starter from day one. Peppers left his footprint on
Leesburg High School football as one of the best if not the greatest punter ever at Leesburg. He is the
first Jacket to appear in a postseason football game in college in the Randy Trivers era at Leesburg
High School.

I talk to  R.J. moments after the game and I asked him was he and his teammates surprised about
winning the CAA and a playoff berth. I asked him was there any pressure on him making the transition
from high school to college.   

"No sir we all believed in each other and we all believed we could win," Peppers said. We believe that
this year is our year the transition from high school to college didn't bother me, that's one of the main
reasons I chose this school."

The Tigers, who are 6-1 against nationally-ranked teams this season, are one of six CAA teams that
are ranked in the Top 25. They join No. 10 Old Dominion, No. 11 Maine, No. 12 New Hampshire, No. 15
Delaware and No. 19 James Madison as CAA schools ranked in the Top 25. To date, the Tigers have
defeated No. 20 Villanova, No. 14 Richmond, No. 18 Old Dominion, No. 14 William and Mary, No. 7
Maine and No. 7 New Hampshire. Their lone loss was a 35-30 defeat at the hands of No. 21 Delaware.

For the first time ever, Towson University is ranked among the Top 10 NCAA FCS teams in The Sports
Network/Fathead.com College Football Weekly Poll, which was announced on Monday. The Tigers,
who are 8-2, are ranked eighth in the nation after their 56-42 victory over No. 7 New Hampshire (7-3) on
Saturday afternoon.

One year after finishing last in the CAA with an 0-8 record, the Tigers (9-2, 7-1) completed their inspiring
drive to their first CAA championship. They have become the first team in NCAA history to qualify for the
NCAA post-season playoffs at the FCS level, the Division II level and the Division III level. The Tigers will
be making their first NCAA post-season appearance since 1986.     

Lehigh (10-1, 5-0 Patriot League) will be facing Towson—a former Patriot League member—for the first
time since winning a 35-3 rout in 2003. Towson has only won once in 11 meetings with the Mountain
Hawks.

Game time has not yet been announced for the Lehigh match, but tickets are available through
Ticketmaster, and the game will be streamed on ESPN3.
