Football Travels To Bryant For Saturday, 1:00 PM Kickoff
Smithfield, RI - Led by senior All-American running back Ryan Fulse, the nation's third-leading rusher with 1,263 yards, Wagner makes the 202-mile trek to Bryant University for a Saturday, 1:00 p.m. kickoff vs. the Bulldogs at Beirne Stadium. LAST TIME OUT The Seahawks, who are coming off a 47-30 Senior Day loss to Duquesne in a game Wagner led 23-21 at halftime, are looking to snap a two-game losing streak. Bryant, meanwhile, is looking to end a two-game losing streak of its own, having dropped a 27-14 decision at Saint Francis U last week. WAGNER VS. BRYANT THE SERIES The Seahawks and Bulldogs have met 10 times with Bryant holding a 7-3 lead in the head-to-head series. Last season, the Bulldogs earned a 31-16 win on Staten Island despite a then-career high 228-yard rushing day from Fulse. Overall, in this series, Bryant won the first two games played between the teams, in 2008 and 2009, and have came out on top in the two most recent meetings. In between, Wagner went 3-2 vs. Bryant, capped by a 23-20 come-from-behind road win in 2014 which clinched a tie for the NEC title that season. This game also marked the end of Walt Hameline's 34-year tenure as head coach. Two years earlier, en route to claiming the 2012 NEC title outright, the Seahawks earned a 31-21 home win over the Bulldogs. RYAN FULSE ON WALTER PAYTON OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR WATCH LIST Senior preseason All-American running back Ryan Fulse was the FCS's leading rusher all season (after kicking off the year with a 271-yard effort vs. Bowie St), until being held to 54 yards vs. Duquesne last week. As a result, Fulse is now the nation's third-leading rusher with 1,263 yards. Back on October 18, Fulse was added to the Walter Payton Watch Offensive Player of the Watch List. In 2017 during his first season as a Seahawk after transferring in from Monroe College, Fulse ran for 1,306 yards, which was the fourth-best mark in the FCS. He now ranks sixth on the Seahawk all-time rushing list with 2,567 career yards. The 5-11, 195-pound Fort Meade, FL native has rushed for 100 yards or more six times in nine games this season, and 10 times in his last 13 games. In his 20-game Seahawk career, Fulse has topped the century mark 13 times, which includes a pair of 200-yard-plus efforts, highlighted by that career-best 271 yards in Wagner's 40-23 season-opening win over Bowie State back on August 30.

CAM GILL MEMBER OF BUCK BUCHANAN DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR WATCH LIST Senior outside linebacker Cam Gill, who has been a force all season for the Seahawks, is a member of the Buck Buchanan Award Watch List. The 6-3, 240-pound Douglasville, GA native, leads the Seahawks in both tackles for loss (17.5) and sacks (10), figures that rank first and second in the NEC, respectively. In addition, his xx sacks per game average ranks No. 4 nationally. SANTONI GRAHAM CONTINUES TO PILE UP TACKLES Redshirt junior inside linebacker Santoni Graham leads the Seahawks with 81 tackles, a 9.0 per game clip which ranks No. 3 in the NEC. For his career, the hard-hitting, 6-1, 225-pound Virginia native has totaled 212 tackles, including 137 solo stops, along with 22.5 tackles for loss and nine career sacks. ABOUT THE BULLDOGS Bryant enters Saturday with a 5-4 overall record and 2-3 in NEC play and has lost three of its last four games. A Bryant win on Saturday would secure the Bulldogs' second-straight winning season. Bryant is also attempting to finish NEC play at .500-or-better for the 10th straight season. No other current NEC team has done that. Last week, Bryant allowed a season-low 233 yards of total offense against Saint Francis U. Bryant held the Red Flash to 100 yards of total offense in the second half. Senior Thomas Costigan currently leads the NEC in tackles per game and ranks in the top 15 nationally in tackles per game and solo tackles per game. He is the current FCS career leader in forced fumbles (13). Tomas Wright picked up 1.5 sacks last week and now has 11 on the season, ranking third nationally. He is a half sack shy of tying the single-season program record. Senior Vincent Nisivoccia continued his career year last week, posting three catches for 76 yards and a touchdown and now leads the team with 43 catches for 587 yards and six touchdowns.
