Lynchburg - Saturday night's LU at Richmond game is the first in a two-game series, the Spiders will come to Lynchburg next season.
The Flames defense should get a strong test from redshirt junior quarterback Michael Strauss, who's averaging 290 yards a game and hitting just under 65 percent of his throws. Strauss has six TDs and just one interception in his first three games. His favorite target has been Salem native Stephen Barnette. Disrupting Strauss in some fashion will be a priority for LU's defense.
