SEEING RED (ZONE)

The Beavers have posted an 89.7 percent mark in the red zone the past two seasons. In 2010, the Beavers were 35-of-39, scoring 221 points (29 TDs and six FGs) to rank second in the NSIC. This season, BSU is 27-of-35 (77.1%), scoring 169 points (22 touchdowns, 20 rushing).

TAKE IT TO THE HOUSE, TAKE TO THE HOUSE

In 2010, the Gang Green defense returned four interceptions or fumbles for touchdowns. The trend continued in week one of the 2011 season, as freshman Scott Christensen took an interception to the end zone for a 27-yard return - playing in his first collegiate game.

KEEP ‘EM UNDER 100

The Bemidji State defense has been hard on opposing rushing attacks for the past four seasons. Despite allowing 235 yards versus Minnesota Duluth Oct. 24, 2009, the Beavers managed to keep their opponents to an average of just 81.2 yards per game to rank 7th in all of NCAA Division II in 2009.

Weekly Game Notes

Game-Day Services

Known for its run defense the ‘Gang Green’ was better defending the pass in 2010, allowing just 147.0 yards per game through the air, ranking them third in the conference and 15th in the nation. In 11 games, BSU opponents completed just 147 passes in 286 attempts (51.4%) with eight interceptions. The 2011 secondary and linebacking core got right after it against Minot State (Aug. 25), picking the Beaver quarterback five times. The mark was the most by BSU since taking five away from Upper Iowa Nov. 9, 2007. Senior safety Brody Scheff brought down a then-career-high two interceptions and totaled 40 return yards. BSU had three picks against Upper Iowa Oct. 1, then posted four versus Concordia-St. Paul Oct. 8 to increase its conference-best 13 interceptions on the season. Scheff had a new careerhigh three picks in the game to tie the school record (Since 1971) and be the first Beaver to accomplish the feat since 2004.

MASTER SCHEFF

Senior safety Brody Scheff was named National Defensive Player of the Week by D2Football.com Oct. 11. Scheff earned the award after picking up Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors Oct. 10 for his three interceptions in the 20-7 victory against Concordia University, St. Paul Oct. 8. Scheff posted a career-high three interceptions, 11 tackles (six solo) and a sack (-5 yards) in victory. The three picks was the most by any NSIC player in one game this season and is the first time a BSU player has recorded three or more interceptions in a game since Corey Brewer did so versus Wayne State College Nov. 6, 2004. The three picks also tied him for the school record (Since 1971) with Brewer and Rich Schwartz (Nov. 20, 1983). The awards were the first of his career and the first defensive conference player of the week (Jake Anderson) since 2007. It was also in 2007 the last time a BSU player earned national player of the week honors (Paul Potemra, Special Teams by D2Football.com). In 2009, BSU faced four nationally-ranked opponents marking the first time the Beavers have battled four of the American Football Coaches Association’s (AFCA) top 25 teams in the same season. Bemidji State went 2-2 versus ranked opponents in 2009 dropping Winona State Oct. 12, then-ranked 20th and earning a 21-10 victory versus No. 14 Wayne State (Neb.) Oct. 10. The Beavers missed a 4-0 mark versus nationally-ranked by the narrowest of

margins. BSU battled No. 10 Minnesota State to overtime Sept. 5 before falling to the Mavericks 37-34 and dropped a onepoint game, 35-34, to No. 7 Minnesota Duluth Oct. 24. In 2010, BSU fell to the Bulldogs, who were ranked No. 2 in the AFCA poll, 44-21. Augustana found its way in the top 25 in the AFCA and DII Football polls after defeating Bemidji State 10-0 Sept. 11. St. Cloud State was ranked 25th in the 35-14 loss to the Huskies Nov. 6. Augustana College was ranked No. 16 in the nation when it met BSU Sept. 10. The Beavers used overtime to down the Vikings on their home field, winning 30-27. The Beavers defeated Augustana to earn their first win against a ranked opponent since defeating then-No. 14 Wayne State College 21-10 Oct. 10, 2009. BSU is 4-10 under head coach Jeff Tesch against ranked opponents after falling to then-No. 11 UMD 26-23 Sept. 24.

OVERTIME

In the Augie win, BSU picked up its first overtime victory since Oct. 26, 2002 when it defeated Minnesota State University Moorhead 35-28 in two overtimes. Under Tesch, the Beavers are 4-2 in games that go into overtime.

RANKED

GROUND AND POUND

BSU downed Southwest Minnesota State 41-10 Sept. 17, rushing for 437 yards and six touchdowns. The yardage was the most since the BSU program record of 453 in 1989. The last time the Beavers rushed for six scores was 2006 against Minnesota, Crookston. BSU also posted six scores on the ground in the 48-7 win at Upper Iowa Oct. 1 when it rushed for 365 yards. The Beavers also rushed for more than 300 yards against MSU Moorhead, posting 328 on the ground. BSU ranks third in the league and 11th in the nation with 246.0 yards per game.

WE’RE GOIN’ STREAKIN’

Running back Dustin Kroeplin scored a TD in each of the Beavers’ last nine games in 2009. During that stretch he posted 10 touchdowns, running eight in and catching two more. He did not play against Minot State (Aug. 28, 2010) and ended the streak in the loss to Augie (Sept. 11, 2010). He finished the last seven games of 2010, finding the end zone in six games, scoring eight times, seven on the ground and one in the air. In his career, when he finds the end zone - through the air or on the ground - the Beavers hold a 17-3 record. He scored twice against Southwest Minnesota State Sept. 17, didn’t find the end zone against Minnesota Duluth Sept. 24, but scored a career-high three times against Upper Iowa Oct. 1 to become the first BSU running back to score three rushing touchdowns in a game since Eurise Watson found the end zone three times Sept. 27, 2008. He added one Oct. 8 against Concordia-St. Paul and has a conference tying mark of six rushing touchdowns this season. He now has eight touchdowns after scoring twice at U-Mary Oct. 22.

KEEPING THE DRIVE ALIVE

The Beavers have converted on 49-of-100 third downs this season for a 49.0 percentage that ranks second in the NSIC. The defense has allowed its opponents to convert 36-of-110 (32.7%) to rank third in the league. The Beavers rank third in the NSIC in time of possession with 31:39 minutes per game.

REEL ‘EM IN

Junior tight end Brian Leonhardt brought in a career-high 129 receiving yards and recorded one touchdown against Augie (Sept. 10), becoming the first BSU player to surpass 100 reception yards since George Kadlec brought in 149 receiving yards and two touchdowns against Concordia University, St. Paul Nov. 8, 2008. Leonhardt has 390 yards on 26 receptions this season, just shy of his 28 receptions and surpassing the 357 yards he recorded in 2010 when he was named a First-Team AllNSIC performer. He owns 995 career receiving yards, just shy of the 1,000 yards plateau. If he surpasses the century mark he will be the second BSU tight end to accomplish the feat since 1971. Bruce Ecklund (TE, 1980-83) posted 1,542 career yards.

BLANKED

A record 4,711 fans packed Chet Anderson Stadium Aug. 25 to see Bemidji State roll past its fellow Beavers in Minot State University 27-0 and record its first shutout since Nov. 6, 2004 when BSU downed Wayne State College 24-0 at the H.H.H. Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minn. The last time the Beavers blanked an opponent at The Chet was Oct. 19, 2002 with a 37-0 victory against Southwest Minnesota State University. The 4,711 fans marked a new Chet Anderson Stadium record.

COACHING MILESTONES FOR TESCH

In his 16th season, BSU head coach Jeff Tesch has accumulated almost every coaching record at BSU. He recorded his 100th career victory in grand fashion Sept. 10, defeating then-No. 16 Augustana College 30-27 in overtime in Sioux Falls, S.D. On Oct. 31, 2009 he accomplished two more feats. He posted his 90th career win. Ironically, it came in his 150th game coached at BSU. He currently ranks among the top 25 Division II coaches in all-time wins and winning percentage.

SCORING STREAK SNAPPED AT 133

With a 24-6 victory at Minot State to start the 2010 season, the Beavers had scored in 133 consecutive games. In a 10-0 loss to Augustana College at Chet Anderson Stadium Sept. 11, 2010 the streak ended. The last time BSU was held without a single point was Nov. 8, 1997 when Minnesota Duluth defeated BSU 41-0. The Beavers restarted the streak the next week, downing Southwest Minnesota State 30-14. Currently the scoring streak sits at 17.

PAT Kicks Made

For the first time since 2007, the Beavers were in the American Football Coaches’ Association Division II Coaches’ Top 25 Poll, announced Sept. 19. The Beavers were 3-0 to start the 2011 season and were ranked No. 24. The last time BSU was in the AFCA top 25 was August 22, 2007 when the Beavers were slotted No. 19 in the preseason poll that followed Bemidji State’s 2006 conference championship. BSU was ranked No. 23 in the final AFCA poll of 2006. The Beavers appeared in its second top 25 poll of the week Sept. 20 as the D2Football.com Top 25 Media Poll placed the Beavers No. 23. The ranking marked the first time BSU has been in the poll since the 2007 preseason poll slotted it No. 20 after Bemidji State captured the 2006 conference championship. BSU reappeared in the AFCA poll Oct. 10 with a No. 23 ranking and moved to No. 20 Oct. 17. The Beavers also found themselves in the DIIFootball.com poll for the second time this season Oct. 18 with a No. 25 ranking.

It begins in early October with the turning of the fall leaves. Students, proud alumni and families from surrounding communities file into a small, picturesque stadium on the shore of Lake Bemidji with fevered expectations for the battles to come. Through the autumn combat, those watchful souls have been blessed to witness an unprecedented era of success. All-America honorees. School records falling by the wayside with an almost dazzling regularity. A stadium where victories occurred with the frequency of a bigfoot sighting just a few short years ago now hosts men with annual dreams of championship and glory. It’s an era of success and excitement that once might have seemed akin to the Christmas fantasies of youth. But under the masterful guidance of 16th-year head coach Jeff Tesch, the Bemidji State football program has undergone a remarkable metamorphosis and gone from annual doormat to title contender. Tesch has posted a 104-66 record at BSU and led the Beavers to a school-record streak of 10 consecutive winning seasons from 1998-2007. During that historic streak he posted four of the six eightwin seasons for a program now in its 86th season of competition. He is the only coach in Bemidji State history to oversee back-toback eight-win seasons, and his 2000 and 2006 teams set matching school records of nine wins. Tesch’s success at BSU has been remarkable. Upon being named BSU’s 15th field general in May 1996, he inherited a program which had won just 16 games in its previous eight seasons, suffering losing streaks of nine, 11 and 18 games in that time. Today, his 104 wins represent more than 30-percent of the program’s all-time victories. He has averaged six wins a season at a program which in 70 years prior to his arrival averaged barely three victories each fall. In fact, Tesch’s 104 wins in 16 years surpasses the number of victories garnered by the Bemidji State program in the 31 full seasons prior to his arrival — 88. Tesch has further cemented his legendary status by becoming Bemidji State’s all-time leader in coaching victories. He posted his 53rd win at BSU with a 28-20 victory over Minnesota Crookston on Oct. 16, 2004, moving him past H. “Jolly” Erickson, who won 52 games during a 17-year career at BSU from 1938-54. Tesch’s growing list of achievements at Bemidji State has him amongst the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference’s coaching deans as well. A two-time NSIC Coach of the Year now in his 16th season at the Bemidji State helm, Tesch and Winona State’s Tom Sawyer who enters his 16th year with the Warriors are the longest tenured coaches in the NSIC. Before taking over at BSU, Tesch spent 11 years as an assistant for annual NCAA Division II playoff contender North Dakota. There, he assumed assistant head coaching duties in 1995. The Fighting Sioux captured at least a share of the North Central Conference championship three consecutive seasons before Tesch’s departure in 1996. In addition to coaching duties, Tesch helped the Sioux achieve a 92 percent graduation rate while serving as academic advisor. Prior to his UND appointment, Tesch spent one year as an assistant at Montana State, followed by a two-year stint as offensive coordinator at Central Missouri State. A graduate of Moorhead State (Minn.) University who was a freeagent signee with the Atlanta Falcons, Tesch was inducted into the MSU Hall of Fame in the spring of 1998. In 1977, Tesch was the NCAA Division II receiving champion and still holds Dragon singlegame and single-season records for receptions. In 30 years of coaching, Tesch has produced 12 All-America selections and five NFL draft picks. Jeff and his wife Susan have two children — daughter Tara and son Vincent.
