The Bears dominated the Jacksonville Dolphins in their first home game of the season, 45-3 against the Pioneer Football League team.

Mercer moved around some of their positions, working to find a formula that works for them for the rest of the season. This was the perfect matchup for them to try out new things as they prepare to face their first Southern Conference opponent next week at Samford.

Kaelan Riley and Robert Riddle continued to trade off quarterback duties. Riddle, the redshirt freshman, got his first start last week when he made two touchdown passes against Memphis last Saturday.

Both players made eight complete passes. Riley got two touchdowns during the game with a run and a pass while Riddle scored off of a 3 yard run in the first quarter.

Running backs Tee Mitchell and Tyray Devezin showed out this game, with Mitchell racking up 118 yards on 12 runs and a touchdown, while Devezin gained a net 99 yards with two touchdowns.

This victory for Mercer marks the 33rd win Bobby Lamb has had with the program and his 100th win as a college coach.

The team gave him a superbowl style celebration, anointing him with a Gatorade dunk after the final seconds ticked off the clock.

"[To win] 100 career games feels great, but when you win 100, you're probably getting old. I'm proud of that accomplishment,” Lamb said in a Mercer press release. “Looking back at my career, those 100 wins have come from all the players and coaches that have been with me over these past 14 seasons [and two games].

Mercer will have to take the momentum from this victory into their game with Samford, who currently ties them with a 1-1 record after their loss against Florida State last night.
