Preston got the Berg on the scoreboard with a 24-yard TD reception less than two minutes into the contest. His second score was a five-yard TD reception to open the scoring in the second quarter. On Saturday Preston will look to double up his scoring mark once again, which would mark the second straight year he has opened up with multiple TD’s in the first two outings.


Putting Up a Wall: Despite the graduation of All-American Matt Grieves, the Berg defensive line did not back down in its season opener.
