ILLINOIS STATE

Cliff’s Notes

INDIANA STATE

Record: 0-4, 0-1 Last Week: L, at S. Dakota St., 0-41 This Week: Youngstown State

For Openers

the first touchdown of his career in the Redbirds 38-7 win over Austin Peay on Saturday, but he didn’t stop there. Gordon added three more scores to tie the Hancock Stadium record with four total rushing TDs. Gordon rushed for 96 yards on 17 carries, both career highs.

  Indiana State dropped its league opener at South Dakota State. It marked the fifth consecutive loss for the Sycamores in a league opener and gave ISU a 1-10 mark all-time in MVFC openers on the road. The Sycamores last won a MVFC opener on the road in 1996 at Western Illinois.

Takeaway Artists

An ISU First

  Sophomore RB Cliffton Gordon ran for

  The interception drought in Normal, Ill., seems to be over. Illinois State picked off four passes in Saturday’s 38-7 win over Austin Peay. The single game total surpassed the entire 2008 season mark, when the Redbirds intercepted just three passes. ISU has six picks through three games, led by E.J. Jones’ three interceptions. The three picks are the first of the junior cornerback’s career.

Spreading the Red

  QB Matt Brown, who took over for injured starter Drew Kiel, completed passes to nine different receivers in Illinois State’s 38-7 win over Austin Peay. Brown was also able to distribute the ball to nine different receivers at Illinois during the previous week (Sept. 12). Illinois State’s new spread offense has contributed to that, as the Redbirds completed passes to seven different receivers at Eastern Illinois (Sept. 3).

Illinois State (1-2,0-0) ---------------------------------------------09-03 at Eastern Illinois, L, 6-31 09-12 at Illinois, L, 17-45 09-19 AUSTIN PEAY, W, 38-7 09-26 *SOUTH DAKOTA STATE 10-03 *at North Dakota State 10-10 *at Southern Illinois 10-17 *INDIANA STATE 10-31 *at Missouri State 11-07 *WESTERN ILLINOIS 11-14 *at Youngstown State 11-21 *NORTHERN IOWA

  The Sycamores were shut out for the second consecutive week when ISU fell 41-0 at South Dakota State after dropping a 31-0 decision in the previous game to Eastern Illinois. It marked the first time that Indiana State has been shutout in consecutive weeks since 1999. ISU’s 95 yards of total offense against the Panthers coupled with its 90 yards of offense against the Jackrabbits is the first time the Sycamores have failed to reach the 100 yards of total offense mark in consecutive games in the history of the program.

McCleskey Leads Defense

  The ISU defense continues to shine led by senior DB Donye McCleskey, who had a season-best 15 tackles against South Dakota State, including one for a loss. McCleskey also recorded his third career interception. Sophomore CJ Cook was impressive as well in his return from injury, as he posted 12 total tackles and a pair of pass breakups at SDSU. Of the 10 ISU defenders who posted multiple tackles against SDSU, seven are sophomore or younger.

MISSOURI STATE

Record: 2-1, 0-0 Last Week: W, Murray State, 35-10 This Week: Northern Iowa

Run Reversal

  After giving up 301.2 yards per game on the ground in 2008, Missouri State has dramatically improved this season in its ground defense. Through three games, the Bears have allowed just 99.3 yards per game and 3.1 yards per carry.

Ten Is Enough

  Cody Kirby had his first 200-yard passing game in four tries in Saturday’s win over Murray State. His 17 completions in the game went to 10 different receivers, and his three TD passes were his most since Oct. 4, 2008.

Moving On Up

  Cody Kirby also moved up Missouri State’s career passing list this week. His 223 passing yards pushed him over the 4,000-yard mark for his career, making him just the fourth Bear to achieve that milestone. He now stands at 4,189 yards which is No. 3 all-time at MSU, surpassing Valley Football Player of the Decade DeAndre Smith this week. His ninth career 200-yard passing game ties him for second all-time in that category.

NORTH DAKOTA STATE

Record: 1-2, 0-0 Last Week: W, Wagner, 59-28 This Week: at Southern Illinois

Forcing Turnovers

  NDSU forced four first half fumbles including one recovered by true freshman linebacker Brandon Jemison, who was making his first collegiate start. Sophomore linebacker Preston Evans (Sioux Falls, S.D.) led the Bison defense with 10 tackles, while sophomore defensive end Coulter Boyer (Hurley, S.D.) had 1.5 sacks, and redshirt freshman Isaac Kolstad (Mankato, Minn.) recorded his first collegiate interception.

Home Sweet Home

  The 59 points are the most scored by NDSU since 2006 when the Bison defeated Concordia-St. Paul 66-7 in the season opener. The Bison have now won 11 straight home-openers, dating back to 1998 when Emporia State defeated NDSU 23-21.

Quick Strikes

  Wagner held a 38:18 to 21:42 edge in time of possession as the Bison scored three TDs in less than a minute and six touchdowns in less than 1:45.

NORTHERN IOWA

Record: 2-1, 0-0 Last Week: W, Saint Francis, 30-0 This Week: at Missouri State

Billy Boots ‘Em

  Junior placekicker Billy Hallgren tied

a career high with three made field goals in UNI’s 30-0 win over St. Francis. Hallgren drilled three-pointers from 40, 27 and 31 yards in the triumph. Hallgren leads the team in scoring through three games with 33 points. He has made 7-of-10 field goals and all 12 extra points he has attempted.

Hord Finds the Zone Twice

  Senior wide receiver D.J. Hord found the endzone twice in UNI’s 30-0 victory over St. Francis. Hord hauled in touchdown passes of 2 yards and 57 yards from senior quarterback Pat Grace. Hord leads the squad this season with three touchdown receptions. Hord, a transfer from Notre Dame, caught 15 passes for 149 yards in 2008 but did not find the endzone.

Stingy Defense

  NDSU avoided its first 0-3 start since 1962. The Bison started 0-2 for the first time since 1981. It was the 50th career win for head coach Craig Bohl, who has compiled a 50-19 record. Bohl is in his seventh season at NDSU.

  The Panther defense has been downright stingy through three games. UNI has limited the opposition to only 8.0 points per game and held opposing offenses to 256.0 yards per contest. Through three games, UNI has allowed only three touchdowns and has a streak of seven straight scoreless quarters heading into Saturday’s game at Missouri State.

Bohl-ing Them Over

SOUTH DAKOTA STATE

Record: 2-0, 1-0 Last Week: W, Indiana State, 41-0 This Week: at Illinois State

Success in the MVFC

  SDSU improved to 2-0 all-time against Indiana State and 7-2 in Missouri Valley Football Conference play since joining the league in 2008. The Jackrabbits have won their two MVFC openers by a combined score of 81-7, defeating Youngstown State, 40-7, last season

Strong Defense

  SDSU has allowed 36 net yards rushing in its two games this season and has not allowed an opponent into the red zone. Defensively, SDSU limited Indiana State to five first downs for the entire game. The Jackrabbits did not allow a first down by rushing, tying a school record set against Hamline (Minn.) in 1975. The Jackrabbits lead the FCS in rushing defense and scoring defense, and rank No. 2 in the FCS in pass efficiency defense and total defense.

Pitching a Shutout

  South Dakota State shut out Indiana State, 41-0 last week, and the Jackrabbits’ last shutout was a 45-0 home victory over Stephen F. Austin. Notably, the Jackrabbits improved to 24-19 in Beef Bowl games, winning for the fourth consecutive year and ninth time in 11 tries.

SOUTHERN ILLINOIS

Record: 1-1, 0-0 Last Week: W, SW Baptist, 59-7 This Week: North Dakota State

Totally Offensive

  SIU’s 699 yards of total offense against Southwest Baptist was the second most in school history and the sixth most in the Missouri Valley Football Conference. Of SIU’s eight TDs against Southwest Baptist, four of them went for 39 yards or more.

Record-Breaker

  Senior running back Deji Karim beat the old school record by nearly seven yards for the most yards per carry by a back with at least 10 attempts (21.0 on 10 rushing attempts). Karim’s 210 yards rushing beat his old personal best by 109 yards and it was his third multi-touchdown game.

Pin-Point Accuracy

  Quarterback Chris Dieker’s 82.4 completion percentage (14-of-17) against SBU is the fifth highest in program history.

Pickin’ and Grinnin’   Korey Lindsey intercepted two

passes in the game against Southwest Baptist and finished with five tackles. Lindsey’s two picks give him 10 for his career, which is tied for the seventh most in school history.

WESTERN ILLINOIS

Record: 1-2, 0-0 Last Week: L, SF Austin, 30-40 This Week: idle

Rare Home-Opening Loss

  Under head coach Don Patterson, Western Illinois holds a perfect 9-1 record for home-opening games. Last season’s home opener resulted in a 63-0 shutout over Quincy with Mark Hendrickson in place as acting head coach. Prior to last Saturday, the last time the Leathernecks dropped the home-opening game was in the 1993 season when Montana State took a 29-16 victory from Western, under then-head coach Randy Ball.

Patterson Two Wins Away

  In his 11th season at Western Illinois, head coach Don Patterson (6347) is two wins shy of becoming the schools’ all-time winningest coach. Former head coach Randy Ball (199098) currently holds the position with a 64-41-1 record.

Speight Sets Record

  Western Illinois’ Todd Speight became just the third player in league history to record two TD returns in the same game as he had a punt return and kickoff return for touchdowns against Stephen F. Austin. It marks the first time in school history that a player had returned one of each for a score. Speight accounted for 312 yards of total offense -- 13th-best alltime in league history.

YOUNGSTOWN STATE

Record: 2-1, 0-0 Last Week: W, Northeastern, 38-21 This Week: at Indiana State

History in League Openers

  YSU is 9-3 all-time in MVFC openers since joining the conference in 1997. Of those 12 games, seven have come on the road. YSU is 4-3 in those games. This is the third time the Guins have opened a league slate versus Indiana State (1997 and 1998 - the first two).

Summers Scoots for 3 TDs

  QB Brandon Summers became the first YSU quarterback since Ray Isaac in 1990 to have three rushing scores in the same game. Last Saturday at Northeastern, Summers had two oneyard scoring runs and a career-long 73 yard jaunt in the fourth quarter. Isaac had three rushing scores on Nov. 17, 1990, against Maine. He had scoring runs of seven, nine and 11 yards versus the Black Bears. Isaac also passed for a touchdown like Summers did versus the Huskies.

Seen This Score Before

  YSU has won its past two games by an identical score of 38-21. It is the first time in school history that YSU won consecutive games by the same exact score. Ironically, YSU trailed 7-0 before the defense took the field in both games. The second half was the difference in both games. YSU outscored APSU 21-7 and Northeastern 24-7. In both games, YSU led 17-14 and 24-14 at some point.
