Players to watch

NSU: Kyler Harris (FS).

- The RiverHawks’ redshirt sophomore free safety has fought off nagging injuries to record double-digit tackles in his last four games. Against Central Missouri last week, Harris had a game-high 18 tackles, 13 of which were solo.

Southwest Baptist: Derwyn Lauderdale (WR).

- The Bearcats’ 5-foot-10, 175-pound wide receiver is one of the top pass-catchers in the MIAA. He is third in receptions per game (8.0) and fourth in receiving yards per contest (108.8). Lauderdale has four 100-yard receiving games this season, and last year against NSU he had 16 catches for 125 yards and two scores.

Looking ahead: NSU will play its final road game at Lincoln, and Southwest Baptist will host Central Oklahoma.
