Evans, Lora closing in on impressive records

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Eastern Illinois wide receiver Erik Lora and New Hampshire linebacker Matt Evans are closing in on some impressive records with only four weeks remaining in the 2012 season.

Lora, a junior who missed 2011 due to injury, has already broken EIU's single- season reception record, catching 11 passes against Jacksonville State on Oct. 13 to surpass Jerry Wright's previous record of 76 set in 1984. Lora also has set the Panthers' single-game records for receptions (21) and receiving yards (269).

Lora is nine receptions away from breaking the Ohio Valley Conference's single- season record of 92 catches as EIU heads to 18th-ranked Eastern Kentucky on Saturday.

He has seven straight 100-yard receiving games this season, which is the longest streak in the FCS since 2000.

Evans, the 2011 Buck Buchanan Award winner and a first-team All-America selection, needs at least 20 tackles in the team's last three games to overtake Steve Doig (1978-81) as the all-time leader in UNH history.

Evans is the FCS' current active leader with 415 career tackles. He also is the active leader in solo tackles (235) for a career.

No. 12 UNH visits Rhode Island on Saturday.
