• Carson-Newman's last meeting with Saint Augustine's in 2007 saw quite a few records fall by the wayside. The Eagles limited the Falcons to -71 yards rushing on 30 carries aided by eight sacks (third most all-time) and 17 tackles for loss (also third most all-time). The Eagles also forced four fumbles (third all-time) on Sept. 15, 2007 against the Falcons. The 35 yards of total offense SAU gained that day are the fewest that the Eagles have ever allowed, as is the Falcons 0.7 yards of offense per play.
• Saint Augustine's will try to become the first CIAA team to beat Carson-Newman in 15 years. The Eagles have won 11 straight games against CIAA competition. The Eagles last lost in 2001 to WinstonSalem State 27-16. C-N is 12-1 all-time against the league.
• The Falcons had their struggles offensively last year. SAU ranked in the bottom five in eight offensive categories. That includes being third from the bottom in total offense (200 yards per game) and fifth from the bottom in scoring (9.2 points per game). SAU scored 92 points in all of 2015. They scored 16 points in every first quarter for 2015. C-N had seven quarters last year and one already this year where it scored at least 20 points.
• Saint Augustine's holds the distinction as the most decorated Division II athletics program, with a record 37 NCAA team titles and 265 individual titles. This also places them as the fourteenth-most productive athletics program across all three divisions. All of those championships have come in either men's indoor (13 team, 75 individual), women's indoor (6 team, 41 individual), men's outdoor (14 team, 105 individual), or women's outdoor (4 team, 44 individual) track and field. The football stadium is named for legendary track coach George Williams, who some would consider to be the Ken Sparks of the DIvision II track coaching world
