One year ago Bethel University's football squad rained on
Augsburg College's homecoming parade with a 21-20 victory, but the
Royals refused to let the Auggies return the favor Saturday, as BU
held on to defeat Augsburg 31-28 during Bethel's homecoming game at
The No. 5-ranked Royals (4-0, 2-0 MIAC) held Augsburg quarterback Ayrton Scott to just 276 total yards of offense, which is quite the feat as Scott led the nation with an average of 390.3 yards per game. The Auggies (3-1, 2-1 MIAC) limited Brandon Marquardt, who had been averaging 14.0 points per game, but it was Marshall Klitzke that stepped up Saturday with 109 yards on 24 carries and two touchdowns — one rushing and one receiving.
Peterson and Reese
Walker started the scoring in Saturday's
contest, as the two connected for a 23-yard touchdown that capped
an 11-play, 82-yard drive in Bethel's opening series. Peterson's
pump fake created space between Walker and the closest defender,
and the ball was placed perfectly into Walker's hands in the back
of the end zone.
