Bradford (0-2) at Racine Horlick (1-1)

When: 7 tonight

Where: Horlick Field (1648 N. Memorial Dr., Racine)

Series note: Horlick has won four straight since Bradford's 7-6 win in 2014. … Prior to last season's 41-8 blowout victory in Week 3, the Rebels squeezed past the Red Devils 31-30 in 2016 and 24-21 in 2017.

Player to watch: Brock Lampe, a 6-2, 215-pound junior linebacker, is the Red Devils' top defender along the front seven and will be key tonight against the Rebels' offense. ... "It's his second year looking at the wing T," Bradford coach Troy Bowe said. "Horlick runs, and he should be able to make plenty of plays."

Key stat: For the third straight week, Bradford must deal with a run-heavy offense. The Red Devils allowed 307 yards on 43 attempts in a Week 1 loss at Waterford and 453 yards on 45 attempts in a Week 2 home loss to Lake Geneva Badger. … The Rebels averaged 239.5 rushing yards and 5.8 yards per carry in splitting their non-conference games.

FYI: Entering Southeast Conference play, Bradford is the only team still without a win. The other seven teams in the conference are all 1-1. … Horlick won the 2017 SEC title outright with a 7-0 conference mark and has reached the playoffs six of the last seven seasons following a three-year playoff drought.
