MERCER RECORD: (0-0, 0-0 SoCon)

Reinhardt pushed Mercer to the limit last year... We escaped with a 40-37 win. What are your predictions for this year? I think the talent gap in recruiting class will clearly favor the Bears by a good margin. Plus the returning players have a full year of experience at a higher level under their belts. I say Mercer 38, Reinhardt 20.
Get Ready!!

I'm ready!!! It's less than 2 hours to kickoff! Who's going to be in the stadium tonight?
After the 1st quarter it's 7-7... Mercer did lead 7-0, but an unsuccessful fake punt gave Reinhardt a short field and a TD. Reinhardt converting several 3rd downs and a 4th down on their scoring drive.
Mercer leads 45-42 with less than 3 minutes to go! Hold the lead Bears!
Mercer wins it on some solid defense on the last Reinhardt drive. An iffy pass interference on 4th down kept Reinhardt alive and the defense stepped up again. Reinhardt would ultimately miss a FG to tie the game, and Mercer escapes with a 45-42 win!

It was not pretty but a win is a win and I will take it anyday. I love it, we 1-0.
