Saturday, September 22, 2012, 1:00 p.m.
Strong Stadium, Beloit, Wisconsin

The Game:  Both teams are looking for their first win of the season after last week's results.  Beloit dropped a 38-14 decision at Lawrence University last Saturday night while Grinnell lost 33-7 at home to Lake Forest College last Saturday afternoon.

The Series: The Buccaneers and Pioneers are meeting for the 52nd time in a series Beloit leads 26-25.  Grinnell has won two straight in the series after Beloit had won three straight.  The teams first met in 1915, a 23-0 Grinnell win.  The Pioneers won the first two meetings with shutouts.  After the 28-0 GC win in 1916, the teams did not meet again until 1939, a 26-19 Beloit victory. 

Buccaneers Last Time Out: Beloit dropped a 38-14 decision at Lawrence University last Saturday night in a Midwest Conference game.  The Vikings got a 26-yard field goal early in the first quarter by Cody Robel to jump on top and then scored three touchdowns in the second quarter on a 16-yard pass from Luke Barthelmess to Tyler Mazur, a 36-yard pass from Barthelmess to Scott Vandeloo, and a 29-yard pass from Barthelmess to Dan Dubnicka to move in front 24-0.  The Bucs got on the board 20 seconds before halftime when Zach Draus ran in from five yards out to make it 24-6.  LU added scores in the third quarter on a Vandeloo two-yard run and the fourth quarter on a Ben Hartman 54-yard run to boost their lead to 38-6.  Will Coyne closed out the scoring with a one-yard sneak with 9:56 remaining.  He then hit Eddie Boyd with a two-point conversion pass to close out the scoring.  Draus finished with a career-high 139 yards rushing on 19 carries, Coyne threw for 164 yards and Dillon Hess caught five passes for 101 yards.  On defense, Derrell Carter had six tackles, all solo, and also recorded the lone sack for Beloit and intercepted a pass, returning it 23 yards.

Last Time vs. the Pioneers: Beloit rallied back from a two-TD deficit but fell short in a 28-21 Homecoming Game loss to Grinnell College at Strong Stadium on October 1, 2011.  Derek Carrier caught 11 passes for 150 yards and two touchdowns to become the all-time leader in receiving yardage for the Bucs.  The Bucs got on the board first, completing a six-play, 63-yard drive with an 11-yard end around by Derek Carrier four minutes into the game.  They made that lead stand up thru the quarter to lead 7-0 after one.  Grinnell tied it up at the 9:22 mark of the second quarter with a 25-yard scoring run by Cody Weber and then took the lead into the lockerroom on a three-yard run from Jason Peters two minutes before the break.  The Pioneers increased their advantage to 21-7 with 3:15 left in the third quarter on a 78-yard pass play from Mike McCabe to Trent Baker but Beloit cut into the lead two minutes later when Brian Maughn hooked up with Carrier on a 44-yard scoring play.  GC led 21-14 after three.  Grinnell put some distance between the teams with 3:11 remaining on a 15-yard run by Weber, capping a quick 53-second drive.  But Beloit kept within a touchdown when Maughn hit Carrier from five yards out with just under a minute left.  The Pioneers recovered the onside kick and ran out the final seconds to secure the win.  Maughn finished with 254 yards passing while Terence Steward had 34 yards rushing on 12 carries.  Carrier caught 11 passes for 150 yards and two touchdowns to become the all-time leader in receiving yardage for the Bucs.  On defense, Zach Bock had nine tackles, plus half a sack, while Kenny Williams and Rob Wujek each had eight tackles.  Mark Coogan had 1.5 sacks and Ian Dunning also recorded a sack and had the game's only interception.

Notes:  RB Zach Draus had the second 100-yard rushing day of his career with the career-high 139 on Saturday at Lawrence, averaging 7.3 yards per rush.  His other 100-yard game came on October 15 of last season in a 134-yard effort at Ripon…DE Derrell Carter had a big day on defense at Lawrence.  He was one of four players with a team-high six tackles.  Carter's were all solo.  He also had the Bucs' lone sack and grabbed his first career interception, returning it 23 yards to help set up Beloit's first score late in the opening half…QB/WR Dillon Hess had 101 receiving yards Saturday, his career high and the first 100-yard receiving day by someone not named Derek Carrier since September 11, 2010, when Julian Ross had 102 against St. Norbert at Strong Stadium.   

Up Ahead for the Bucs: The Buccaneers stay at home for a second week when they host Cornell College for the Homecoming Game on September 29.  Kickoff is at 1:00 p.m.  They then hit the road for two weeks, playing at Knox College on October 6 and at Illinois College on October 13.
