Notes from the Ripon Game: 
RB Zach Draus had his best collegiate game last Saturday with 134 yards rushing on 10 carries, including a career-best 64-yard run for Beloit's final score…RB Terence Steward had his best rushing effort Saturday with 93 yards on 15 carries since he ran for 106 yards against St. Norbert on September 11, 2010…DB Vince Salucci's interception Saturday, his second of the season, was the tenth of his career…LB Jake Fisher's 15-tackle game was the highest total by a Buccaneer since Tony Baratti had 24 at Knox College on September 26, 2009…

The Series:  The Buccaneers and Fighting Scots are meeting for the 52nd time in a series Monmouth leads 29-21 with one tie.  MC has won seven of the last eight meetings, with last season's 34-27 Beloit win in Beloit snapping a seven-game Monmouth winning streak in the series.  The teams first met in 1906, with the Fighting Scots scoring an 11-0 victory. 

Buccaneers Last Time Out: Beloit suffered a tough loss at Ripon College on Saturday afternoon in a back and forth game as the Red Hawks scored with just over a minute left for a 31-27 victory.  Ripon opened the scoring at the 12:37 mark of the opening quarter on a six-yard run by T.J. Pierce.  But Brian Maughn hit Mat Kahl with an 18-yard scoring pass on the ensuing possession to make it 7-all with 9:40 left in the quarter.  Jacob Gahart kicked a 37-yard field with 3:45 remaining to give RC a 10-7 lead after one.  The Buccaneers grabbed the lead at 5:56 of the second quarter on Zach Draus' 36-yard run.  But the extra point was missed, making it 13-10.  The Red Hawks answered with a 43-yard screen pass from Matt Miller to Brad Johnson for a score that made it 17-13, RC, at the break.  Beloit regained the lead with 5:44 left in the third quarter on Dillon Hess' 13-yard run for the only score of the quarter to lead 20-17 thru three.  Ripon re-took the lead four seconds into the fourth quarter on a four-yard run by Miller, making it 24-20.  But Draus scored his second TD of the contest four minutes later on a 64-yard dash that gave the Bucs a 27-24 advantage.  The Red Hawks then capped a nine-play, 51-yard drive with an eight-yard run by Miller with 1:20 remaining to take the lead back at 31-27.  The Buccaneers drove nine plays in the final minute-plus and got to the Ripon 28 before a sack by Mike Engelmann ended the contest.  Draus finished with 134 yards rushing on ten carries while Terence Steward had 15 rushes for 93 yards.  Maughn threw for 201 yards.  Hess caught four passes for 73 yards and Derek Carrier three for 51.  Miller ran for 88 yards on 19 carries and threw for 100 yards.  Ben Garland caught three passes for 44 yards.  The Buccaneers held the total yardage advantage, 472-375.  Defensively, Jake Fisher had 15 tackles, including a sack, while Vince Salucci made ten stops and intercepted the tenth pass of his career.  Darth Winkler and Alan Ham each had nine tackles.  Jared Anderson had 12 tackles to lead Ripon.  Matt Bull had 1.5 sacks as part of his five tackles.

Last Time vs. the Red Hawks: The Bucs held on at the end for a 34-27 win over Monmouth College on October 23 at Strong Stadium, the first for the Bucs over the Fighting Scots since the 2002 season.  Andrew Christensen started the excitement in the first 13 seconds of the game, returning the opening kickoff 86 yards to put the Bucs up 7-0, a score that held through the rest of the first quarter.  Christensen caught a nine-yard scoring pass from Brian Maughn at 13:45 of the second quarter to give Beloit a 14-0 lead before Monmouth got on the board with a one-yard scoring run three minutes later from James Lauber, but the point-after was missed.  Mat Kahl booted back-to-back 30-yard field goals, at 4:57 and 2:48, to put Beloit up 20-6.  But the Scots scored on a 35-yard pass from Brik Wedekind to Spencer Brown 18 seconds before the break to make it 20-13, Beloit, at the half.  Derek Carrier got in on the fun in the third quarter with a pair of receiving TDs, the first a 79-yarder from Maughn at 11:52 and the second, a 31-yard play, from Odin Grina on a receiver option pass at 4:50.  The Buccaneers entered the fourth quarter with a 34-13 cushion and held that advantage until the final seven minutes.  Monmouth pulled to within two TDs on a five-yard run by Trey Yocum at 6:53 and then closed the gap to seven points with 2:29 left in regulation on Wedekind's one-yard run.  After a Beloit drive stalled MC drove the ball to the 50 and then, with the clock ticking to :00, threw a pass into the endzone that fell off the receiver's hands to secure the Buccaneer win.  Maughn finished with 252 yards passing.  Raymond Thomas led the rushing attack with 56 yards on 17 carries, including an exciting 24-yard run.  Carrier caught four passes for 127 yards while Julian Ross had five receptions for 72 yards.  Wedekind rushed for 76 yards on 14 carries and threw for 214 yards.  Matt Shepherd caught nine passes for 141 yards.  Matt Fogerty paced the defense with 12 tackles, eight solo, and a sack while Michael Underwood had eight tackles.  Adam Hoste made ten tackles for the Fighting Scots and Sam Hoster had eight.  

Up Ahead for the Bucs:  The Buccaneers return to Strong Stadium for Senior Day on October 29 against Lawrence University in the final home game of the season.  Kickoff is at 1:00 p.m.  Beloit then closes out the season at Illinois College on November 5.
