The Commodores’ premonition proved to be spot on as the home team had to slug it out with the Red Raiders in the second half to pull out a 44-25 victory.
Leading Lafayette to the win was senior Brandon Mack. At quarterback, Mack completed 6 of 12 passes for 104 yards, rushed for 106 yards and accounted for three scores.
Defensively, Mack pulled down one of Lafayette’s four interceptions. It’s that all-around performance that earned Mack his first Player of the Week honor of 2012. (September 18, 2012, Page 6)
