Lindenwood returns to Harlen C. Hunter Stadium for Homecoming this Saturday as the Lions take on Culver-Stockton at 1:30 p.m. Those two factors lately usually result in a Lion victory. Under head coach Patrick Ross, Lindenwood is 34-4 on its home field, including a 5-1 mark at Homecoming.
The Lions defense will look to shutdown another unranked opponent. Lindenwood is allowing just 15.0 points a game this season, its best mark since 2004, and it ranks ninth in the NAIA. The unit has not allowed over 14 points against an unranked foe.
The offense meanwhile continues to rack up the offensive yards, especially in the passing game. Lindenwood averages over 50 points a game and is throwing for nearly 400 yards a contest, a mark that is higher than 69 NAIA squads average for total offense.
Those two units, along with special teams that continue to improve each week, combined for a 48-14 victory last weekend over a Baker squad that was a preseason top 25 team.
The opponent this week is a Culver-Stockton squad that is still searching for its first win of the season. The Wildcats fell last weekend in a non-conference battle with Peru State by a 24-14 margin.
