Little Change in Division II Coaches' Poll in Week FourLittle Change in Division II Coaches' Poll in Week Four
The top eight teams in the AFCA Division II Coaches’ Top 25 Poll remained the same, but with losses to then-No. 9 Grand Valley State (Mich.) and then-No. 10 Carson-Newman (Tenn.), the rest of the Top 25 moved up a few spots. Valdosta State (Ga.) still sits No. 1 with 30 first-place votes, followed by Minnesota State-Mankato, Northwest Missouri State, West Texas A&M and Colorado State-Pueblo rounding out the top five.
Ohio Dominican enters the AFCA Division II Coaches’ Top 25 for the first time at No. 23 after the Panthers handed Grand Valley State (Mich.) a 57-14 loss, dropping the Lakers to No. 25 this week. Carson-Newman (Tenn.) also dropped in the poll to No. 20 after its close loss to conference rival Catawba (N.C.), 25-22.
There is only one Top 25 matchup this week as No. 11 Minnesota-Duluth plays host to No. 18 St. Cloud State (Minn.) in a key Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference North Division game.

I haven't forgotten about my picks with games involving two nationally ranked teams. This past weekend IUP beat California to up Husky's record to 5-3 for such games. This coming weekend in the NSIC will see #23 St. Cloud visiting #8 Minnesota Duluth. I look for Minnesota Duluth to win this game. The fat will be in the fire when Pittsburg State meets Northwest Missouri State NEXT weekend! I will be at the California-West Chester game on Saturday to see a big confrontation between PSAC West and PSAC East teams. Go BUCCOS!!!

Two early PSAC football results have West Chester edging California by a TD 38-31--the game which I attended, and Bloomsburg got a surprisingly decisive win over Gannon 38-14. Big wins for both the Golden Rams and the Huskies. Shippensburg has had no trouble with Seton Hill, and Slippery Rock has simply obliterated Kutztown. IUP is having its way with Millersville. More later. Heard tell Penn State went down in flaming ruins. Go Buccos!!

Huskies Defense Stifles Gannon in 38-14 Road Victor

ERIE – In a matchup featuring two teams averaging 40 points per game on the season, many of the 1,748 in attendance at Gannon University Field may have expected a shootout between the host Golden Knights and the ninth-ranked Bloomsburg Huskies.

It was the Huskies' defense that stole the show, however, forcing turnovers and never allowing Gannon to gain much traction offensively as part of a 38-14 Bloomsburg victory in a contest between two first place squads.

Bloomsburg keeps its record perfect at 5-0 on the year while Gannon, which stands in a tie for first in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Western Division, falls to 3-2.

The Huskies limited Gannon to a season-low 276 total yards including only 72 yards on the ground. The defense kept Gannon running back Jansen Jones in check by holding Jones, who entered the day third in the nation in rushing with 657 yards through four games, to 69 yards on the ground.

Conversely, Huskies senior running back Franklyn Quiteh (Tobyhanna/Pocono Mountain West) bettered his Division II-best season average of 197 yards rushing per game by picking up a season-high 251 yards on 24 carries to go along with two touchdowns. It marked the 10th game of over 200 yards rushing in Quiteh's career. He also moved to ninth all-time in Division II history with 6,367 career rushing yards.

The early going saw a defensive struggle as neither team could crack into the scoring column during the first quarter of play. An eight-minute explosion on both sides of the ball broke the game open for the visitors, however.

Bloomsburg broke the scoring drought in the second quarter when quarterback Tim Kelly (Camp Hill/Cedar Cliff) found fullback Derek Burkhard (Fayetteville/Chambersburg) on a screen pass – Burkhard was able to make the most of his first career reception as the redshirt sophomore rumbled 42 yards for the touchdown and a 7-0 lead.

Bloomsburg's defense would play a key role in the team's next score.

With Gannon driving into Husky territory, Jonathan Patrick (Somerset, NJ/Franklin) intercepted Liam Nadler's pass and brought the pick back 34 yards to set up BU with great field position. Three players later – an 8-yard reverse to Lawrence Elliott Jr. (Utica, NY/Thomas R. Proctor) and two runs by Quiteh – the Huskies were back in the end zone following a 21-yard burst by the PSAC's all-time leading rusher.

Another key moment from the Huskies secondary set up another touchdown. D.J. Robinson picked off Nadler at the Bloomsburg 45-yard line, giving the ball back to the Huskies with two and a half minutes left in the half. Bloomsburg drove 55 yards in six plays, capped by a 12-yard scoring run by Quiteh to take a commanding 21-0 lead into intermission.

Gannon looked to change the momentum out of the locker room, forcing the Huskies into a three and out before finally tallying its first points of the game on a seven-play, 54-yard drive. Jones found a bit of running room, breaking off 16 yards for the touchdown and a 21-7 score.

Another big play from Quiteh set up some insurance points for the Huskies. Quiteh broke off a 61-yard run, his fourth rush of over 60 yards this year, to put the Huskies in position for a 40-yard field goal from Danny Fisher (Liverpool/Central Dauphin) to stretch the edge back to three touchdowns.

Gannon appeared to have an answer, driving 35 yards in nine plays down to the Bloomsburg 1-yard line. Yet another defensive stand turned the Golden Knights away, though – Gannon attempted to pitch in space to Jones, but the running back was brought down three yards behind the line by linebacker Dylan Spangler (Waynesboro/Waynesboro) to force the turnover on downs.

Bloomsburg put the game on ice with a back-breaking 96-yard drive to begin the fourth quarter. The Huskies drove the length of the field in 12 plays, reaching the end zone with a terrific, juggling 20-yard catch by tight end Aaron Allison (Philadelphia/Frankford).

A Liam Nadler quarterback sneak gave Gannon its second touchdown of the game, but the final scoring came from the visitors when Joe Parsnik (Wilkes-Barre/Coughlin) ran off a 34-yard touchdown with less than three minutes on the clock.

The Huskies totaled 500 yards of total offense, paced by 351 yards on the ground. Through the air, Kelly completed 8 of 15 passes for 149 yards and two scores.

Defensively, Andrew Harris (Bethlehem/Whitehall) and Justin Shirk (Harrisburg/Central Dauphin) led the way with eight tackles apiece for Bloomsburg. Larry Webster (Hagerstown, MD/Elkton) racked up two sacks while Shawn Mitchell (Nazareth/Nazareth) also tallied a forced fumble.

Bloomsburg returns home on Saturday, Oct. 12 when it hosts Millersville at 3:30 p.m. inside Danny Hale Field at Redman Stadium as part of Homecoming Weekend on campus.

GAME NOTES: Bloomsburg scored 20 or more points for the 18th consecutive game, setting a school record … BU has racked up at least 500 yards of total offense in four of five games this year … Webster now has 21.5 sacks in only 17 career games … Allison and Parsnik each had their first career touchdowns in maroon and gold … Ezra Ranco (Collegeville/Perkiomen Valley) made a career-high six tackles … the Huskies have now won eight straight crossover games against PSAC West opponents.

In Div II games involving two nationally ranked teams, Minnesota Duluth defeated St. Cloud 34-7. Husky picked Minnesota-Duluth to win.
Consequently, his record is now 6-3 for such games.

In the PSAC not all the scores are final; but it is abundantly clear the winners are as follows: IUP crushed Millersville, Mercyhurst beat Cheyney, Bloomsburg beat Gannon in an eye-opener because of the margin of the victory for the Huskies, East Stroudsburg is beating Clarion big in the 4th quarter, West Chester won by a TD over California, Shippensburg ran it up against Seton Hill, Edinboro beat Lock Haven with no great problem, and Slippery Rock just blew away Kutztown. It is really a shame that there is such a disparity of talent in the PSAC. There are four or five teams that have nary a chance of ever winning. See you all tomorrow. It's back to the PSAC East and PSAC West conference races this coming Saturday. Go Buccos!!

West Chester Beats California

WEST CHESTER, Pa. - Rondell White rushed for 145 yards and two touchdowns to lead No. 17/19 West Chester to a 38-31 non-league victory over visiting California (Pa.) at sun-splashed John A. Farrell Stadium Saturday afternoon.

West Chester (5-0) has now won its first five games of the season for the first time since 1974 while Cal (3-2) suffered its second straight loss to a nationally ranked opponent. The Vulcans dropped a 20-7 verdict last week at Indiana (Pa.).

“I thought our kids really hung in there in tough conditions. It was hot and humid,” West Chester head coach Bill Zwaan commented afterwards. “(Cal) is a really good football team, and I just think that our offensive line did an unbelievable job in that fourth quarter.”

Brandon Monk returned a kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter, right after Cal had brought back a kickoff 100 yards for a score that kept the Vulcans at bay. Monk's kickoff return for a TD was the longest such play in school history. Cal’s 100-yard kickoff return marked the 18th time in PSAC history that a player returned a kickoff 100 yards.

“That was such a big play because it came right after their kickoff return,” Zwaan explained. “Because of when it happened and the circumstances surrounding it, it was probably the biggest play of the game.”

Monk’s scamper down the West Chester sideline restored the host’s 11-point lead at 28-17 heading into the fourth quarter. There, the Golden Rams made sure that Cal would not have too many opportunities with the football. West Chester went on a pair of touchdown drives that ate up a combined 12 minutes, 18 seconds of the game clock.

Shawn Leo kicked a 23-yard field goal to make it a 31-17 contest with 9:49 left. That capped a 12-play, 73-yard drive that took 5:19. Cal answered when Mike Williams hauled in an over-the-shoulder 51-yard TD reception in the back corner of the end zone with 8:38 to go. The Vulcans’ drive took just 1:11, and the visitors were back to just a one-touchdown deficit.

That is when West Chester took the ensuing kickoff and marched 76 yards on 14 plays, killing nearly seven minutes of the fourth-quarter clock. Rondell White plunged over the goal line from one yard out for his second score of the game to make it 38-24 with 1:39 to go. On that drive, West Chester converted four third-down plays, including a catch out of the backfield by fullback Camille Max on a 3rd-and-1 from the Rams’ 33-yard line. It was the junior’s first career catch.

“I have all the confidence in the world in Camille,” Zwaan said. “Normally that is (Sr., FB Jared Bonacquisti) running that route. But, we had him playing on the line in the double-tight end set. The ball was supposed to go to LaRonn Lee, but Max was wide open. He made the catch, which turned out to be a really big play.”

It took just 1:04 for Cal to answer once again. Trey Johnson caught a 7-yard pass from James Harris (16-for-31 for 273) to pull the Vulcans back to within seven with :39 left. The ensuing onside kick bounced out of bounds, and West Chester ran out the game clock to come away with the win.

LaRonn Lee snared a 37-yard scoring pass from Sean McCartney with 6:26 to play in the third quarter. That TD gave West Chester a 21-10 lead and immediately preceeded the back-to-back kickoff returns. All three TDs in the third quarter were scored within 28 seconds of one another.

Sean McCartney went 12-for-20 for 184 yards and one TD. LaRonn Lee caught three passes for 85 yards and a TD. Ronell Williams registered 10 tackles, including one sack, defensively, for West Chester.

White finished with 181 all-purpose yards, and Monk finished with 152.

West Chester hosts East Stroudsburg next Saturday afternoon on Homecoming Weekend. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. at John A. Farrell Stadium.

NOTES: West Chester (5-0) opens the season with five wins for the first time since 1974 when the Golden Rams started the year 8-0 … the win marked the second in as many years over Cal – the first time West Chester has accomplished that feat since 1994 and 1995 … So., Brandon Monk’s 97-yard kickoff return for a TD was the longest kick return in school history … it also marked the first time since November 1999 that West Chester returned a kickoff for a touchdown – a span of 157 games) … Sr., RB Rondell White went over 100 yards rushing for the third time this season and 13th time in his career … White became the seventh player in school history to rush for 3,000 yards in a career … White moved up to sixth place on WCU’s all-time rushing chart with 3,111 career rushing yards … White now has 5,755 career all-purpose yards, which ranks fourth all-time at WCU … his two TD runs upped his mark to 43 career TDs overall – putting him fourth all-time … he has 30 rushing TDs, which ranks sixth all-time at WCU … Sr, PK Shawn Leo converted all five extra point attempts … he is now third all-time in extra-point attempts with 145 … his eight points in the game runs his career number to 265 – which ranks fifth all-time at WCU and is the most by a place-kicker … Jr., MLB Ronell Williams registered 10 tackles in the game … he now has 240 career tackles – which is two stops away from the Top 10 in school history … the two teams combined for 711 kickoff return yards in the game and two TDs.

It is hard to imagine how the maligned defense of the Bloomsburg Huskies shut down the high powered offense of Gannon this afternoon.
Evidently, things are not as bad with the Bloomsburg defense as the stats have been telling us. Furthermore, the Huskies' passing attack is rapidly improving, which fact is not good news for future opponents of the highly ranked Huskies. With the likes of Franklyn Quiteh racking up over 200 yards per game behind a devastating offensive line, should the Huskies passing game continue to improve then it is bad news for all fuutre PSAC opponents of the Huskies. In the next three weeks, the Huskies have Millersville, East Stroudsburg, and Cheyney on the schedule. In the interim, West Chester has East Stroudsburg at home and then must travel to Shippensburg for a showdown with the forces of Super QB Zulli. Bloomsburg's last three opponents are Shippensburg, West Chester, and high scoring Slippery Rock. There are still quite a few unwritten chapters in the PSAC East race. In the PSAC West, I don't see anybody beating the super defense of IUP and that includes high scoring SRU. We are only a bit short of being halfway through the season, but I think it is clear that IUP wins the PSAC West, and the PSAC East even more clearly remains up for grabs. It IS GOING TO BE A TRUE SCRAMBLE in the PSAC East. And then we can start thinking about post-season playoff berths!!

Final Scores for PSAC Football on October 5 (All games are crossover games.)

Bloomsburg 38 Gannon 14
West Chester 38 California 31
East Stroudsburg 48 Clarion 28
Edinboro 31 Lock Haven 6
Mercyhurst 63 Cheyney 14
Slippery Rock 58 Kutztown 10
Shippensburg 73 Seton Hill 27
IUP 62 Millersville 3

Husky picked 7 of 8 games correctly to up his record to 36-13. He missed the boat on the Bloomsburg-Gannon game, in which he greatly underestimated the Huskies' defense that held Gannon's high powered offense to just two TDs Next weekend's schedule is as follows:

10/12/2013 12 PM * Shippensburg Lock Haven Lock Haven, PA Live Stats Live Audio Details
10/12/2013 12:00 p.m. * Edinboro Gannon Erie, PA Live Stats Live Video Live Audio Details
10/12/2013 1:05 PM * Cheyney Kutztown Kutztown, PA Live Stats Live Video Live Audio Details
10/12/2013 2:00 PM * East Stroudsburg West Chester West Chester, PA Live Stats Live Audio Details
10/12/2013 2:00 PM * IUP Slippery Rock Slippery Rock, PA Live Stats Live Video Live Audio Details

10/12/2013 3:37 PM * Millersville Bloomsburg Bloomsburg, PA. Live Stats Live Video Live Audio Details

Husky's picks are as follows: Shppensburg has no trouble with LHU, Gannon recovers with a win over the Fightin' Scots, Kutztown gets a win over Cheyney, West Chester gets by a dangerous ESU (It's homecoming at WCU.), defensive minded IUP wins over SRU in the best game of the week, Mercyhurst wins on the road over Seton Hill, California wins at home over fading Clarion, and Bloomsburg should win over Millersville with no problems (It's also homecoming at "Bloom", and Quiteh might gain another 250 yards.) The second best game of the weekend is probably East Stroudsburg at West Chester.

I'll be posting PSAC Football Athletes of the Week later today or tomorrow plus the AFCA and D2Football.com national rankings for Division II on Monday and Tuesday. Go Buccos!!!

NO. 11 BULLDOGS RUN PAST NO. 18 ST. CLOUD STATE SATURDAY

It might have been miserable weather conditions for the 3,616 spectators who gathered at James S. Malosky Stadium Saturday afternoon, but the gusty winds, steady drizzle and cool temperatures didn't seem to bother the University of Minnesota Duluth one bit.

The Bulldogs' game plan was to run the football, and run they did, rolling up a season-high 471 yards on their way to a convincing 34-7 Homecoming victory over St. Cloud State University in a battle of Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference North Division frontrunners. UMD's other main objective was to keep Phillip Klaphake in check and the No. 11 Bulldogs held the standout senior Husky quarterback to just 102 passing yards.

No. 18 St. Cloud State (4-1 overall) took its only lead of the afternoon early in the second quarter on a three-yard run by Klaphake, but UMD answered by scoring twice in the final 28 seconds of the first half, getting the first of those touchdowns from sophomore Eric Kline off a fake field goal attempt. That capped an 11-play, 97-yard drive that started after the Bulldogs (4-1) halted St. Cloud State on a momentum swinging fourth-and-two situation from UMD's three-yard line. Junior running back Austin Sikorski rushed 17 times for 177 yards and two touchdowns while sophomore Logan Lauters finished with 107 yards and two scores on 12 carries.

"We just stuck to our game plan and the offensive line did a great job all day," said Sikorski, whose touchdown runs of 66 and 31 yards midway through the second half closed out the Bulldog scoring. "We did what we needed to in the second half. They had had our number the last two years (beating the Bulldogs twice), but we took care of business today."

UMD freshman Drew Bauer put up only 14 passes the entire day, completing four of them while his counterpart, Klaphake, the 2013 NSIC Preseason Offensive Player of the Year, went 13-for-29. Senior defensive end Jordan Bauman came off the bench to register a team-high and career-best nine total tackles and senior inside linebacker Colby Ring had seven stops and a pair of pass breakups to pace UMD defensively.

UMD, which has now won five straight at home over the Huskies and eight of the last 10 overall meetings, limited St. Cloud State to its lowest point total since a 31-7 victory at their expense four years ago in Duluth.

The Bulldogs will be at Minnesota State University-Moorhead next Saturday afternoon.

AFCA Coaches Division II Coaches Football Poll (Week 5)

Top 17 Remain Same in Division II Coaches' PollTop 17 Remain Same in Division II Coaches' Poll
There was very little change in the AFCA Division II Coaches’ Top 25 Poll as only one team in the Top 25 lost this past week. The top 17 spots remained the same with Valdosta State (Ga.) still No. 1, followed by Minnesota State-Mankato, Northwest Missouri State, West Texas A&M and Colorado State-Pueblo rounding out the top five. West Texas A&M did pick up one first-place vote this week after its 72-0 shutout of Central State (Ohio).
With then-No. 18 St. Cloud State’s (Minn.) loss to No. 11 Minnesota-Duluth, the Huskys dropped out of the poll, allowing Midwestern State (Texas) to re-enter the Top 25 at No. 25.
There are three Top 25 matchups this week, and all three are very important conference games with first place on the line. The first game sees No. 1 Valdosta State traveling to No. 14 West Alabama and control of the Gulf South Conference going to the winner. The second Top 25 matchup has No. 21t Tarleton State (Texas) hosting No. 4 West Texas A&M in a key Lone Star Conference game, while the third matchup has No. 5 Colorado State-Pueblo traveling to No. 19 Chadron State (Neb.) with first place in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference on the line.
