Husson University and Union College (NY) have never met on the gridiron but you can surely believe the the Dutchmen have heard of Eagles running back John Smith.

The senior from Georgia begins his final season today with many school rushing records and will likely go over the 5,000 yard career rushing mark during the afternoon.

Smith has 4,963 yards and 50 touchdowns in three seasons at Husson.

Coach Gabby Price and the Eagles are coming off their best season ever (9-2) with Smith and QB Cory Brandon returning. On defense, DE Luke Wasburn returns as reigning ECFC Defensive Player of the Year.

Union College plays in the Liberty Conference and coming off a 3-7. Second year coach Jeff Behrman is a former offensive coordinator for Stony Brook.
