Football Rolls Early in Rout of Austin Peay

Macon, Ga. – The Mercer University football team raced out to an early 28-0 lead and never looked
back, posting a 49-21 victory over
Austin Peay on Saturday evening at Mercer University Stadium.

"I thought our players came out and took control of the game in the first quarter and got us off to a good
lead early on,"
head coach Bobby Lamb said. "We were a little sloppy at times on offense and defense,
but we'll take the win and head into our next conference game with a 5-2 record.

The Bears (5-2) scored twice in the first four minutes of the game, before adding another two
touchdowns in the first quarter to blow the game open early despite only holding the ball for three
minutes and 30 seconds in the period. It is the second-straight strong start at home for Mercer, who
improves to 8-0 against non-conference opponents since reinstating the program last season.

Alex Lakes scored his 10th touchdown on a 12-yard run for an early 7-0 lead, as the Bears went 75
yards in just five plays on its first possession of the game. Following a stop by Mercer's defense,
freshman standout
Chandler Curtis struck again, taking the punt back 61 yards for his FCS-leading
fourth return touchdown of the season and a 14-0 lead for the Bears.

Mercer's ensuing possession was just as quick, as
John Russ hit Tee Mitchell on a quick pass that
went 80 yards for the game's third score. The Bears added another score with two minutes remaining
in the opening quarter, as Avery Ward hauled in an 11-yard touchdown pass from Russ for a 28-0
advantage.

Austin Peay broke up Mercer's shutout bid in the second quarter, as
Malik Boynton found the end zone
on a seven-yard pass from
Mickey Macius to trim the deficit to 28-6 after a missed extra point.
