Game Notes
Notes from the Lawrence Game: 
The Buccaneers have won four straight season finales and five of the last six…P/WR/QB Dillon Hess has a 36.0 (41-1478) punting average thru nine games.  If it holds up it would set a new single-season record, knocking off Tony Warneke's 1986 mark of 35.5…RB Terence Steward moved in to fifth all-time in rushing TDs with his two last Saturday.  He now has 24.  His 116 yards on the ground marked his second 100-yard effort this season, the most he's had since he recorded three such games in 2008 as a freshman…WR Derek Carrier went over the 3,000 career receiving yards mark with Saturday's nine-catch, 151-yard effort.  Going into his final game for the Bucs he has 184 catches for 3,013 yards and 28 touchdowns, all Beloit career records…QB Brian Maughn is #1 all-time in completions, attempts, yards and touchdowns heading into his final game…

The Series:  The Buccaneers and Blueboys are meeting for the 20th time in a series Beloit leads 10-9.  IC had a four-game winning streak in the series until last season's 42-27 BC win in Beloit.  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 (7-6, IC). 

Buccaneers Last Time Out: The Bucs provided some drama but came away with an exciting 20-14 Senior Day win over Lawrence University last Saturday in Strong Stadium.  Lawrence jumped on top in the first quarter on a one-yard run by Tyler Mazur at the 2:34 mark to lead 7-0 after one quarter.  They held that lead through much of the second quarter until Derek Carrier caught a 15-yard scoring pass from Brian Maughn with 1:13 left before the break to tie it up.  But LU got a good kickoff return before scoring on a 32-yard pass play from Luke Barthelmess to Jon Bruehl with 20 seconds left to take a 14-7 advantage into the lockerroom.  The Buccaneers got back even four minutes into the fourth quarter on a 36-yard run by Terence Steward.  Steward did the honors again midway through the fourth quarter with a four-yard run to cap a 10-play, 80-yard drive.  The point-after was missed but Beloit led 20-14.  After the score, the Buccaneer defense forced two punts and then the offense ran out the final 2:56 for the win.  Steward finished with 116 yards on the ground on 20 carries while Maughn passed for 174 yards.  Carrier caught nine passes for 151 of those 174 yards.  Barthelmess passed for 136 yards and ran for 59.  Mazur caught nine passes for 74 yards and rushed for 54 yards.  On defense, Zach Bock had a team-leading 14 tackles while Vince Salucci had ten and also grabbed an interception.  Tyler Coleman also recorded an interception.  Brian Flanagan, Mark Coogan and Alan Ham recorded sacks.  Brandon Taylor had eight tackles and Mats Jonsson seven to lead the Vikings.  Jon Hope had an interception while Andy Paider and Matt Larsen each had sacks and Chris Moore and Larry Mikrut shared one.

Last Time vs. the Blueboys: The Beloit College Football team made sure their fifteen 2010 seniors, playing their final game for the Bucs, went out in style with a 42-27 win over Illinois College at Strong Stadium on November 6, 2010.  Derek Carrier opened the scoring when he hauled in a four-yard pass from Dillon Hess midway through the opening quarter to put the Bucs up for good.  Hess did it on his own early in the second quarter with a four-yard run to make it 14-0 before the Blueboys' Ricky Padilla returned a fumble 52 yards for a TD at the 8:58 mark to cut the lead in half and make the halftime score 14-7, Beloit.  The Buccaneers broke away in the third quarter with three unanswered touchdowns.  Senior Julian Ross had a 43-yard catch and run 37 seconds in to the quarter to make it 21-7.  Hess then went in from two yards out at 3:47 to build the lead to 28-7 before Ross grabbed his second TD of the quarter from Brian Maughn, this one from six yards out to make it 35-7 entering the fourth.  But IC wasn't done.  They scored a pair of touchdowns in a 2:15 span early in the quarter to pull to within 35-21 with 11:43 remaining.  Mitch Niekamp hit Branden Downing from three yards out at 13:58 and then Niekamp connected with Chris Asmar from 16 yards away.  But Andrew Christensen, the program's all-time leader in kickoff return yardage, returned the kickoff after the second TD 86 yards, his second kick return score of the season, to settle things down and put Beloit back up 42-21 with 11:27 left.  Illinois College got one last score at the 11:03 mark on a Niekamp to Brock Thompson 49-yard scoring play, completing a four-TDs-in-2:55 stretch, to close out the scoring.  Individually it was a big day for the Bucs.  Maughn finished 29-46 for 384 yards and the two scores, breaking his own single-season mark for passing yardage and setting a new record for TD passes.  Carrier caught nine passes for 106 yards while Ross finished with five catches for 86 yards, ending his career as the all-time leader in receptions, yardage and touchdowns.  Christensen chipped in six catches for 90 yards, giving him 259 all-purpose yards for the game and ending his career with 4,549, second all-time.  Niekamp passed for 330 yards with Thompson catching nine passes for 187 yards.  Combined the teams had 718 of the 760 total yards through the air.  On defense, Tony Baratti had ten tackles, his eighth double-figure tackle game of the season.  He finished his career with a record 434 stops.  Matt Fogerty added nine tackles while Valde Raizys had two tackles for loss.  Mark Coogan recovered a fumble and Vince Salucci had an interception while also blocking a kick for the eighth time in his career.  He also had three pass defenses.  Jake DeFauw had nine tackles to lead the Blueboys.  Tyler Stults recorded three sacks for 30 yards.  Keith Hunter and Eric Fisher both had interceptions. 

Up Ahead for the Bucs:  The 2012 season, which includes five home Midwest Conference games (Monmouth College-9/8, Grinnell College 9/22, new conference member Cornell College 9/29, Ripon College 10/20 and St. Norbert College 10/27).
