SERIES:  Began in 1884.  Williams holds the edge 71-50-5.  Since 1987, the Ephs are 19-5-1 vs. the Lord Jeffs, but the series has been much more tightly contested in the last decade as Amherst has claimed four victories.

For the first time in four years neither team enters the contest at 7-0.

This will be the last Williams-Amherst contest played on the current configuration of Pratt Field.

All-time on Pratt Field the Ephs have compiled a winning record in the 63 games played to date, compiling a record of 32-27-4.

COACHES:  Williams head coach Aaron Kelton (17-6) is in his third year at the helm of the Ephs.

Kelton was the first Eph head football coach to debut with a perfect season (8-0-0) in 2010, when he led the Ephs to the Little Three and NESCAC titles, while earning NESCAC Coach of the Year honors. 

Kelton is the first African American head football coach at Williams and in NESCAC.

Kelton is 1-1 vs. Amherst

Amherst head coach E.J. Mills (93-34) is completing his 16th season as head coach of the Lord Jeffs.  Mills served as the defensive coordinator at Amherst from 1993-96 before being named the head coach in 1997.

Mills is 5-10 in his career against Williams and is the only Amherst coach to defeat Eph legend and College Hall of Fame honoree Dick Farley (2000: 20-12 & 2002: 45-35).

LITTLE THREE:  The oldest continuously contested football championship in the nation without a membership change began in 1910. 

Today's game will determine the 2012 champion as both Amherst and Williams have defeated Wesleyan this season.

Summary of Little Three titles (most recent):

Williams -- 48 (2010)

Amherst -- 29 (2011)

Wesleyan -- 12 (1970)

2-way tie: 1 Amherst/Williams (1995)

LAST WEEK:  In Hartford, CT, Amherst gave undefeated Trinity a serious challenge and led the Bantams until midway through the 4th quarter. Trinity's Rae Haynes intercepted an Amherst aerial and ran it back 40 yards for the go-ahead TD with 8:55 remaining. Trinity prevailed 32-20.

Amherst totaled over 300 yards on the day against the NESCAC's top defense with 133 on the ground and QB Max Lippe throwing for 192 and 1 TD. 

In Williamstown, the Ephs topped Wesleyan 19-7 behind the running of Alex Scyocurka. Scyocurka gained 205 yards on 29 carries and scored 1 TD. The TD by Scyocurka came on a Williams' record 93-yard run off left tackle in the 1st quarter.

The Eph defense held Wesleyan to 60 total yards in the first half, allowing Williams to construct a 16-0 lead.

STREAKS:  Williams enters Pratt Field riding a 3-game win streak in 2012.  The Ephs have also won their last three games on Pratt Field.

AWARDS:  Amherst's placekicker Jake Schmidt was named the NESCAC Special Teams Player of the Week last week for connecting on both of his field goal and attempts and both of his PATs at Trinity. In addition, Schmidt averaged 52.4 yards on his five kickoffs.

Williams running back Alex Scyocurka was named Co-Offensive Player of the Week for his role in the Ephs' win over Wesleyan. Carrying the ball 29 times, Scyocurka accumulated 205 yards on the ground and registered a Williams' record setting TD run from scrimmage of 93 yards.
