More news about: Chapman

ORANGE, Calif. – Pre-game notes are now available for the Chapman University football team's road SCIAC game vs. Claremont-Mudd-Scripps on Saturday, Nov. 3, scheduled for 1 p.m. at John Zinda Field in Claremont, Calif.

There's No Place Like Home
With its 38-12 win over La Verne, this year's team became the first Chapman team since 1995 to go unbeaten at home in a single season. The Panthers are currently riding a four-game home winning streak during which they have averaged 40.25 points per game. Chapman went 5-0 at the old Ernie Chapman Stadium 17 years ago as part of a school-record nine straight home wins from 1994-96. In 1995, Chapman won a school-record eight games.

Back on Track
The win over La Verne also locked up the Panthers first winning season since 2008 when the team went 5-4. Chapman has had three straight years with a 4-5 record after earning back-to-back winning seasons in 2007-08. This marks the third winning season under Coach Owens in his seven seasons.

Rush Hour Continues
Chapman rushed for 453 yards against La Verne, its highest single-game rushing total in the Coach Owens era. Sophomore QB Kean Stancil ran for a Chapman QB record 248 yards on 11 carries in the game including touchdown runs of 79 and 88 yards. Chapman has now rushed for 100 or more yards in 12-consecutive games. The last time Chapman failed to rack up 100 yards was in a 14-9 win over Claremont-Mudd-Scripps in 2011. In that game, Chapman was held to 53 yards rushing on 28 carries. During the 12-game stretch, the team has had 10, 100-yard individual rushing games with five coming from sophomore RB Jeremiah McKibbins, two coming from senior RB Chad Milburn and one each from senior RB Al White, junior QB Michael Lahey and Stancil.

Winning the Turnover Battle
With five turnovers forced against La Verne – three interceptions and two fumbles – Chapman leads the SCIAC in turnover margin at plus five and is 50th nationally out of 240 Division III teams. Chapman has forced 18 turnovers and only given up 13. Chapman's 12 interceptions is its most since 2008 which is the last season the team happened to have a winning record. Senior DB Cameron Cutter had two interceptions vs. La Verne earning him D3 Team of the Week honors and he now leads the team with four on the season.

After losing its first two games by a combined seven points to Lewis & Clark (Ore.) and Rhodes, CMS has been defeated by at least 13 points in each of its five SCIAC games.
