There were questions about the defense despite Brother Rice’s 4-1 start.
The Crusaders now look like a team with all the answers.
Cam Miller and Ricky Smalling continued to be lethal and No. 15 Brother Rice stymied Mount Carmel’s potent option in a 34-14 upset of the No. 3 Caravan on Friday night at Brother Rice.
Miller and Smalling connected 13 times for 178 yards and three touchdowns as Brother Rice (5-1, 1-1) knocked Mount Carmel (5-1, 2-1) out of its first-place tie with No. 2 Loyola in the Catholic Blue.
