More news about: Beloit

Beloit College Buccaneers (4-5, 4-4 MWC)

vs. Illinois College Blueboys (5-4, 5-3 MWC)

Saturday, November 6, 2010, 1:00 p.m.

Strong Stadium, Beloit, Wisconsin

 

The Game:  The Buccaneers close out their 2010 season and honor their seniors as they host the Blueboys of Illinois College.

 

The Teams:  The Bucs ran out of time in their comeback effort in a 29-23 loss at Lawrence University last Saturday.  The Blueboys fell at Grinnell College 42-29, also last Saturday.

 

The Coaches:  Chris Brann is in his fifth season as head coach of the Buccaneers.  He is 0-4 against the Blueboys, 0-2 at Strong Stadium.  Garrett Campbell is in his third season as head coach of the Blueboys.  He is 2-0 against the Buccaneers, 1-0 at Strong Stadium.

 

The Series:  The Buccaneers and Blueboys are meeting for the 19th time in a series that's all tie up at  nine wins apiece.  IC has won five of the last six meetings, with Beloit's 27-23 victory in 2005 breaking up the streak.  The teams first met in 1976, a 10-7 Buc win.  After '76, they met off and on through the next 20 years.  Beginning with the 1998 season, they have played every year (7-5, IC). 

Buccaneers Last Time Out:  The Bucs came up a touchdown short last Saturday in a 29-23 penalty-filled loss at Lawrence University.  Lawrence jumped on top late in the opening quarter on a short pass.  But Valde Raizys blocked the point-after to keep the score at 6-0 after one.  The Vikings added a 19-yard field goal at 6:27 of the second quarter to make it 9-0 but Mat Kahl capped a 14-play, 58-yard drive at the halftime horn with a 20-yard field goal to make it 9-3.  LU added to their lead in the third quarter with a 27-yard and one-yard scoring run and then made it 29-3 four minutes into the fourth quarter with another one-yard run.  But the Bucs were far from done.  In a frantic final eight minutes, Brian Maughn hit Derek Carrier for a 12-yard scoring pass at the 8:23 mark, but the PAT was missed to make it 29-9.  Tony Baratti then intercepted a pass and returned it 17 yards for the score to pull Beloit within 29-16 with 5:40 left.  Maughn and Carrier hooked up again, this time from seven yards out, to cap a quick five-play, 25-second drive and pull the Bucs to 29-23 with 53 seconds left.  But the ensuing onside kick was recovered by Lawrence and they ran out the final 50-plus seconds to hold on.  Maughn finished 26-52 for 280 yards.  Carrier caugtht seven passes for 114 yards and the two TDs while Andrew Christensen had eight catches for 105 yards.  In addition to his interception for a touchdown Baratti led Beloit with 11 tackles, including a sack.  Chris Juels also had an interception while Quentin Layne and Raizys added sacks.

Last Time vs. the Blueboys:  Beloit started slowly and couldn't quite make it all the way back in a 50-42 loss at Illinois College in Jacksonville, Illinois, on October 17, 2009.  The game, despite the final result, was one for the record books for the Bucs as quarterback Brian Maughn set a single-game record for completions and passing yards while Julian Ross set the record for receiving yardage in a game.  IC jumped out quickly, scoring a pair of touchdowns in the first ten minutes of the opening quarter. But Maughn and Ross hooked up for a 66-yard scoring play to make the score 14-7 after one.  The Buccaneers pulled even at 11:55 of the second quarter when Maughn hit Andrew Christensen with a 32-yard TD pass. After the Bluboys responded with a score to retake the lead, Maughn and Christensen struck again, this time for a 65-yard scoring play. But IC scored twice in the final four minutes of the half to lead 35-21 at the break.  Illinois College increased the lead to 20 early in the third quarter with another touchdown pass before Beloit started its comeback with back-to-back short scoring runs, the first for two yards by Dillon Hess and the second for three yards by Cody Large. Those scores made it 41-35 entering the fourth quarter.  The Blueboys got a safety 27 seconds into the fourth and then a TD pass at 13:10 to make it 50-35. Large then closed out the scoring with 1:49 left on a two-yard run for his second touchdown of the game.  Maughn finished 27-37 for 423 yards passing and the three TD passes, breaking Dan Mulligan's single-game completion mark of 26 and his yardage record of 373 yards, both coming against Ripon College on October 6, 1984. Ross caught 11 passes for 202 yards and the score, breaking Mike Meteyard's 189-yard game against Carroll on October 15, 1994.  Andrew Christensen added 252 yards of all-purpose yardage, including seven catches for 131 yards and five kickoff returns for 108 yards. Terence Steward led the rushing attack with 15 carries for 96 yards.  On defense, Samual Bauman had 11 tackles while Tony Baratti and Matt Fogerty each had ten and Vince Salucci nine with a fumble recovery.

Senior Goodbyes:  The Bucs say so long on Saturday to fifteen 2010 senior players who are making their final appearances at Strong Stadium as well as in a Buccaneer Football uniform.  The 15 are:  LB Tony Baratti, DT Quentin Layne, DT Roland Malivert, SS Chris Juels, FS Michael Underwood, CB C.J. Yoakum, DB Ryan Koons, WR Julian Ross, WR Don Guindon, LB Brad Cavanagh, WR Andrew Christensen, DE Valde Raizys, DL Nick O'Block, OT Kurtis Carlson, and WR Odin Grina 

 

Individual Accolades:  The 14 penalties at Lawrence last Saturday broke the team record of 13, set against the University of Chicago on October 14, 1989.  The Vikings finished with 17 in the game…Tony Baratti hit the 100-tackle mark for the third straight season with his 11 stops on Saturday…Brian Maughn now has the top two single-season passing yardage totals in Beloit history after his 280-yard effort Saturday.  He passed for a record 2,622 last season and has 2,356 in 2010 going into Saturday's finale…Derek Carrier increased his single-season receiving TD mark to 11 with two last Saturday.  He also needs 105 yards to break the single-season receiving yardage mark set by Julian Ross last season.  Carrier is averaging 104.2 receiving yards per game…Mat Kahl's 24-yard field goal Saturday gives him seven for the season, just two short of tying the single-season mark set by Greg Dummer back in 1984…

 

Up Ahead for the Bucs:  The Buccaneers look ahead to the 2011 season.  They open at the University of Chicago on Saturday, September 3, in a 6:00 p.m. kickoff.  They play their first MWC game at St. Norbert College on Saturday, September 10.
