SERIES:  Began in 1988 and Williams won the first 15 games until Bates won on the Ephs' Weston Field.

Interesting to note that Bates' second win in the series also came on Weston Field. Last fall the Bobcats topped the Ephs 35-26.

The Ephs lead the overall series 22-2.

Williams is 10-2 vs. Bates in Williamstown and 12-0 in Lewiston.

COACHES:  Aaron Kelton is 14-4 and in his third season at the helm of the Ephs after Williams lost last week 17-13 to Trinity on Weston Field.

Kelton is the first African American head football coach at Williams and in NESCAC, as well as the first Eph football head coach to debut with a perfect season.

Kelton is 1-1 vs. Bates.

Bates head coach Mark Harriman (24-82) is in his 15th year as the head coach at Bates. He also serves as an assistant athletic director at Bates.

Harriman is 2-12 vs. the Ephs.

LAST MEETING:  Bates snapped a 7-game series win streak by the Ephs with a 35-26 victory in Williamstown. The Bobcats' junior QB Trevor Smith connected on two first quarter TDs as Bates took a quick 14-0 lead and never looked back in claiming their second straight win of the 2011 season. Smith threw for 3 TDs on the day and the Bobcats' ground game chalked up 198 yards with 102 coming from Ryan Curit.

The Ephs got 3 rushing TDs and 103 yards on the ground from Tom Wohlwender, but it was not enough to down the Bobcats.

LAST WEEK:  Bates jumped out to an early 14-0 lead at Tufts with a strong rushing attack and then held off the Jumbos in collecting their first win of the season, 31-23. Bates ground out 309 yards in rushing in downing Tufts with QB Trevor Smith gaining 88 yards on 24 carries. The Bates defense held Tufts to just 7 yards rushing on the day, but surrendered 363 yards through the air.

In Williamstown the Ephs held a 13-3 lead over Trinity heading into the fourth quarter, but lost 17-13 as Trinity scored twice via the pass in a 5-minute span. The Trinity defense held the Ephs to 227 yards in total offense with 198 coming via the pass.

STREAKS:  Williams has won all 12 games to date played in Lewiston.

Eph placekicker Joe Mallock has made his last 9 FGs.
