May the Fourth be with you
Through six games this year, no team has converted a fourth down opportunity against the Warrior defense, leaving the Warriors one of two teams left in Division III and one of only five in the NCAA in that rarefied air. The Warriors are joined by Iowa, North Texas, Abilene Christian and Wheaton in the club. Opponents are 0-for-8 on fourth down against Lycoming, which has included three stops inside the 10-yard line.

Costello's Nicks in the Record Book
Sixth in school history with 1,958 receiving yards and 124 receptions, senior Nick Costello has moved into the top five in program history with 20 career touchdown receptions, sitting just one shy of being in a tie with former teammate Ryan Umpleby (2012-15) for fourth in program history. Costello is just 42 yards from becoming the sixth receiver in program history to post 2,000 receiving yards in a career, while he is one reception shy of becoming the sixth to post 125 in a career.

Fisher's Field Goals
Junior Jamie Fisher is 10th in Division III with 1.33 field goals made per game. Fisher, who hit a school-record four field goals against Widener, followed that by knocking down three more against Lebanon Valley, although his run of sven straight field goals was snapped when he missed a 43-yard attempt wide with 4:01 left in the fourth quarter. Fisher, who now has 22 made field goals in his career which is good for fifth in the school's record book, has hit two of the top-10 longest field goals in program history this year and he is the only Warrior to hit six 40-yard field goals in a career.
