College football preview: Anderson at Manchester

Records: Manchester (2-7, 2-5 HCAC), Anderson (0-9, 0-7)

When: 1 p.m. Saturday

Where: Carl Burt Stadium, North Manchester

Radio: 89.5 FM

Scouting report: The Spartans have lost three of their last four but have a chance to finish the season on a resounding note against winless Anderson. The Ravens are averaging just 10.6 points while giving up 43.4, and have given up 40 or more points six times while being shut out three times. That bodes well for a Manchester team that’s scored 21 or more in it its last three games, including a 24-21 loss at Hanover last week in which the Spartans rallied from a 17-0 halftime deficit to take a 21-17 lead with 3:35 to play. But Dexter Britt scored on a 28-yard run with 27 seconds left to snatch it off the Spartans’ plate. One bright spot: The Spartans had 332 total offensive yards and face a Ravens team that’s giving up 431.4 yards per game.
