2011 NORTH DAKOTA FOOTBALL MISSION M

It is our mission to physically and mentally prepare the student-athlete for the rigors p of collegiate athletics, by implementing professionally designed, scientifically p so sound training programs, designed sp specifically to reduce the incidence of in injury and help each team and studentat athlete reach their full athletic potential.

PHILOSOPHY P W believe that strength and conditioning We is crucial to the complete development of the student-athlete. The philosophy of Nate Baukol Director of Strength and Conditioning our strength and conditioning program is based on the belief that what occurs in the weight room and field transfers to the playing surface. We train sport specifically with the goal of enhancing athleticism. We also believe in the importance of work ethic, attitude, accountability and mental toughness and that these qualities can be developed and enhanced through our strength and conditioning program. At the University of North Dakota, one program, functioning behind the scenes, but which should not be taken lightly, is the strength and conditioning program. The strength and conditioning program at UND is among the finest in Division I and vital to the success of all UND athletic teams. The strength and conditioning staff commits themselves to the development of size, strength, power, speed, agility, conditioning, and body composition of each student-athlete. The goal of the strength staff is to develop the athlete and team to reach their maximum potential throughout their career while staying injury free. Nate Baukol, director of strength and conditioning, oversees the program and facilities. Baukol has three full-time assistant coaches and one graduate assistant coach to assist him. Together they direct and monitor the training of over 400 studentathletes in 20 sports at UND. UND also boasts some of the finest strength training facilities around. The facilities include weight rooms at the Ralph Engelstad Arena, the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center, Memorial Stadium, and the Hyslop Sports Center. Training has become a year-round activity, with a student athlete spending as much time on physical development as any other part of their sport throughout the year. Student-athletes follow either offseason or in-season programs, which are individualized specific to the athlete and sport. Off-season programs are five days a week, summer months included. Each athlete receives a comprehensive summer training manual to follow, given that a member of the strength staff won’t be supervising them. In-season programs are typically 45-minute sessions, two to three days per week, supervised by the strength and conditioning staff.

STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING


FFighting g Sioux 2011 NORTH DAKOTA FOOTBALL

O of the unfortunate aspects of athletics One is that injuries do occur. However, every student-athlete from UND athletic teams st are under excellent care thanks to the ar UND Divison of Sports Medicine and its U u umbrella of staff, facilities and training.

W With a staff of 11 faculty athletic trainers, th three graduate assistant athletic trainers an and 30 athletic training students headed by director of sports medicine Steve W Westereng, UND student-athletes are in g good hands, returning them quickly and sa safely to participation. Steve Westereng Director of Sports Medicine

The UND Division of Sports Medicine was formed in 1990. Additionally, the bachelor of science in athletic training degree and the UND Center for Sports Medicine was founded. The athletic training education program was the first program in the nation to be placed directly in a school of medicine and is housed within the Department of Family Medicine, combining the efforts of the UND Athletic Training program and the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences. UND’s progressive thinking makes the institution a leader in the field of athletic training. Moreover, the program’s affiliation with the School of Medicine helps both the athletic training student and the studentathlete. Completion of the bachelor of science in athletic training allows the student to sit for the board of certification exam to become a certified athletic trainer (ATC). The student-athletes also benefit from having a wealth of competent individuals getting them back into action. In order to be accepted into the athletic training program, a student must complete 100 hours of observation, fill out a formal application, and have a minimum GPA of 2.75. The Division of Sports Medicine also has an outpatient facility, the UND Center for Sports Medicine, which specializes in rehabilitation of orthopedic injuries. UND student-athletes, as well as the general public, utilize this facility to decrease pain, increase strength, and improve range of motion of injuries. Many of the injuries seen in the Center for Sports Medicine are significant, such as pre- and post-surgical issues. The center is staffed by Cathy Ziegler, PT/ATC, and Robin Tracy, PT/ ATC, who have experience with high school, college, and professional athletes.

2011 NORTH DAKOTA FOOTBALL North Dakota plays its football home games at the Alerus Center a 12,283-seat stadium located just minutes from the UND campus in Grand Forks. The Alerus features an AstroTurf Magic Carpet playing surface that allows for rapid field conversion, with a playing surface that has no seams. Locker rooms are adorned in UND colors and are dividable into four 25-locker sections. There are also dressing rooms for coaches and officials. State-of-the art scoreboards, 15-by-30 Daktronics video replay boards and a BOSE sound system make the stadium one of the most exciting places in the nation to watch Football Championship Subdivision football. The Alerus has 18 luxury VIP suites, eight concession stands, two vending stands, 14 ticket windows in three locations and four merchandise stands. There are 4,075 parking spaces available.

Fighting Sioux fans have been enthusiastic ever since the Alerus Center opened, but one of the most vocal crowds came in that first year as UND hosted a 2001 NCAA semifinal game against UC Davis. In that game, UC Davis was flagged seven times for illegal procedure among its 12 penalties on the day. After the game, UC Davis players cited the noise level of the Alerus Center crowd as one of the reasons for the penalties. During the 2001 season, more than 100,000 fans turned out to watch the Sioux play at the Alerus, and UND’s regular season average attendance of 10,517 was a school record. The previous school record was 9,150 in 1976, when the Sioux drew an estimated 36,600 for four games at Memorial Stadium. UND’s average attendance was also the third-best figure nationally in NCAA Division II for 2001.

HOME-FIELD ADVANTAGE More than half-a-million fans have seen the Fighting Sioux post a 57-10 record at the Alerus Center in its 10 seasons of existence. That mark includes a 10-0 postseason record and a school record 23-game home winning streak from 2002 to 2005. In 2004, UND led the nation in Division II total attendance for the second straight year, with 75,110 fans passing through the gates to watch Fighting Sioux football - an average of 9,389 per game. In 2008, which was the team’s first at the FCS level, fans broke yet another attendance record as the Sioux averaged 10,617 fans for their five home games.

With 12,431 fans in attendance, the 2009 North Dakota football season began with the largest season-opening crowd in Alerus Center history. The crowd was also the third-largest at the Alerus Center for the Fighting Sioux since the move in 2001.

CHRIS MUSSMAN HEAD COACH Year at UND: 13th year (4th as head coach) Collegiate Experience: 21st year Hometown: Owatonna, Minn. Alma Mater: Iowa State (‘91)

The 2011 season will be the fourth for head coach Chris Mussman as continues to lead UND’s transition to Division I FCS football. The upcoming campaign will also stand as the final one in the Great West Conference as the Fighting Sioux will join the Big Sky Conference and be postseason eligible in time for the 2012 season. Mussman’s third season was one of ups and downs for a young Sioux squad that reeled off all three of its wins at the Alerus Center. The UND offense averaged 45 points in those victories, outscoring its foes by an average of 30 points. A pair of seniors earned first team All-Great West accolades for their play on the field. Linebacker Ryan Kasowski earned a spot on the coaches’ team, while Joel Schwenzfeier landed a spot on the media’s team. Seven players earned Great West weekly honors, while 10 more Sioux found their names on the league’s all-academic team. With a 6-5 record overall and a 2-2, runner-up finish in the Great West Conference, in 2009 Mussman guided the Fighting Sioux to yet another winning season at the Division I level and marked the seventh consecutive winning season for the Sioux.

Highlighting the season were UND’s highly-anticipated road opener against its first BCS opponent (Texas Tech) since 1976, a 31-17 home victory over then 16th-ranked Cal Poly, the opportunity to play for the team’s first NCAA DI conference title, and a season-ending, down-to-thewire, one-point win over Central Arkansas. For their efforts on the field, nine Sioux received GWC Player of the Week honors, including junior Broc Bellmore, who was one of six players to be recognized more than once. Redshirt freshman Mitch Sutton was named Great West Rookie of the Year and was selected to the allconference first team. Sutton was joined on the all-conference roster by junior Ryan Kasowski (first team), sophomore Ismael Bamba (second team), senior Kyle Bondy (second team), junior Ty Boyle (second team), sophomore Dominique Hawkins (second team), senior Brandon Hellevang (second team), junior Kris Ankenbauer (honorable mention), and redshirt freshman Ross Brenneman (honorable mention). While the on-field achievements were easily recognizable, coach Mussman and his staff continually urged their student-athletes to strive for success in the classroom as well. Two players received 2009 ESPN the Magazine Academic All-America honors and four were named to the ESPN the Magazine Academic AllDistrict team. Hellevang and senior Andrew Miller were selected to the Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association Academic All-Star team and both were finalists for the ninth annual FCS ADA postgraduate scholarship. Miller becomes the first Fighting Sioux player to receive the award. He also received an NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship. During his first season as the head coach of the Fighting Sioux, Mussman guided the tradition-rich program to a 6-4 record as the University of North Dakota made its NCAA Division I Football Championship debut. 28

CHRIS MUSSMAN BY THE NUMBERS

The Sioux registered their first victory as a DI program on Sept. 18 when they defeated the Idaho State Bengals, 38-35, in Pocatello, Idaho. They went on to finish 2-3 against DI opponents. UND was undefeated (4-0) against non-DI schools with a records of 3-0 and 1-0 against DII and DIII opponents, respectively. Mussman also led North Dakota to a 1-2 record in its first season as member of the Great West Conference alongside Cal Poly, South Dakota, Southern Utah, and UC Davis. The Sioux finished at the top of the GWC in several team categories, but most notably, they produced the league’s most productive running back (Josh Murray) and kick returner (Dominique Hawkins). The 2008 squad was not only recognized for its efforts on the field, but in the classroom as well. Four student-athletes were honored as academic all-Americans and league-high nine were selected to the Great West allconference team. UND also topped the GWC as 16 players received fall all-academic honors. Mussman possesses nearly two decades of collegiate coaching experience. During his nine seasons as an assistant on the UND staff, the Sioux went 90-24 (.789), won a Division II national championship in 2001, won five North Central Conference titles and made five NCAA Division II postseason appearances. In 2007, Mussman directed arguably the most explosive offensive unit in the history of Fighting Sioux football. UND set school records for total yards (5,924), total touchdowns (60) and regular season scoring average (40.7 points per game).

CO-DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR// SAFETIES

Year at UND: 8th year Collegiate Experience: 8th year Hometown: International Falls, Minn. Alma Mater: North Dakota (‘99)

Year at UND: 7th year Collegiate Experience: 15th year Hometown: Rochester, Minn. Alma Mater: Minnesota State (‘91)

Former UND linebacker Mike Mannausau is in his eighth season on his alma mater’s coaching staff and sixth as defensive coordinator. Prior to the 2008 season, he was elevated to assistant head coach. Mannausau also works directly with the defensive line, a position he coached at UND during his first two seasons on the staff. In 2010, the Fighting Sioux defense had six different players earn All-Great West distinction with four landing on the coaches’ all-conference team and six more being named to the media’s all-conference team. The unit ranked second in the GWC in scoring defense and tied for the league lead with 11 interceptions. One of those six standouts, Ty Boyle, signed as an undrafted free agent with the Pittsburgh Steelers following his final season at UND. UND held visiting Lamar to a season-low in points during a 31-6 victory for the Sioux. One of Mannausau’s defensive ends, sophomore Ross Brenneman, led the club with four sacks and eight tackles for a loss. The Omaha native also earned All-Great West second team honors along with linemate Ty Boyle. Since UND began its transition to Division I three seasons ago, 14 Fighting Sioux defenders have been named to the Great West All-Conference team and 19 have been named academic all-conference. In 2007, Mannausau’s defensive unit led the North Central Conference in total defense and passing efficiency and placed five players on the All-NCC first or second team defense. In 2006, Mannausau helped mastermind the NCC’s top-ranked defense in terms of scoring average, holding opponents to 18.8 points per game. He also tutored All-NCC first team inside linebacker Dan Ullsperger.

John Kelling is in his seventh season as UND’s defensive backs coach and was promoted to co-defensive coordinator prior to the 2006 season. In 2010, senior saftey Joel Schwenzfeier picked up first team All-Great West honors in a vote by the league’s media. He led the team in interceptions for the second straight season with four, including one he took back 100 yards for a touchdown to set a UND and GWC record against Southern Utah. Kelling’s defensive backs accounted for 11 picks, which equaled the most by a GWC squad, and 27 pass break-ups in 2010. Both of those tallies were improvements from the numbers delivered by the unit in 2009. That season, Schwenzfeier accounted for half of the team’s 10 picks as he tied the UND single-game record with three during the opener at Texas Tech (Sept. 5). The secondary boasted 15 pass break-ups, three forced fumbles, and three fumble recoveries in 2009 and sophomore Dominique Hawkins led the team and ranked 12th in the conference with 61 tackles (42 unassisted). The 2008 UND defense finished second in the GWC in scoring defense and eight defenders finished in the top 50 in the conference in tackles. Safety Rory Manke, a 2008 ESPN the Magazine Academic All-America first team selection, ranked fourth with an average of 6.3 tackles per game. UND’s defense led the North Central Conference in pass efficiency defense in three of Kelling’s first four years on the staff. In 2007, the Sioux also led the league in total defense. Senior cornerback Donovan Alexander earned All-NCC first team honors and currently plays for the Canadian Football League’s Edmonton Eskimos.

In 2005, under Mannausau, UND’s defensive linemen accounted for 21.5 sacks among the team’s league-high 42, and Ross Brennan and Jason Peterson each earned All-NCC first team honors.

In 2006, Kelling’s first season as co-defensive coordinator, the Sioux led the NCC in scoring defense, allowing just under 19 points per game. Two members of Kelling’s secondary – cornerbacks Jason Hoffschneider and Alexander – earned all-conference honors.

A pair of Mannausau’s players earned All-North Central Conference honors in 2004 as Peterson and junior defensive tackle Shane Duchscher both collected those accolades. UND led the NCC with 37 quarterback sacks that season.

All-America safety Danny Gagner earned his second straight NCC Most Valuable Defensive Back nod in 2005, while capturing all-conference honors with fellow defensive backs Josh Brandsted and Jason Hoffschneider.

Mannausau previously served as the head football coach at Grand Forks Red River High School in 2003. Prior to that, Mannausau was a graduate assistant with the Fighting Sioux in 2001 and 2002, working primarily with the defensive line. He earned his master’s degree in kinesiology from UND in July 2003.

In 2004, his first season with the Sioux, Kelling’s secondary was the stingiest in the NCC, allowing a league-leading 158.8 passing yards per game. UND also led the league in pass defense efficiency.

From 1999 to 2001, Mannasuau was the defensive coordinator at Falls High School in his hometown of International Falls, Minn. A standout linebacker for the Fighting Sioux from 1994 to 1998, Mannausau lettered four times and was a 1998 Football Gazette All-America honorable mention honoree, while serving as a team captain. Mannausau received a bachelor’s degree from UND in May 1999, majoring in education/physical education and minoring in special education and coaching. In June of 2003, he received a master’s degree in kinesiology from UND. Mannausau is married to former Fighting Sioux women’s basketball standout and UND Athletics Hall of Fame member Tiffany Pudenz. They have two children, daughter Mya and son Max.

Prior to arriving at UND, Kelling served eight years on the Augustana (S.D.) staff, as a wide receivers coach and strength coach. He coached one of the most prolific receiving duos in NCAA Division II history in 2000 in Matt Holmlund and Ryan Nodland. The pair, both All-NCC first team selections, racked up 502 receptions in their careers under Kelling’s tutelage. “JK”, as he is affectionately known by his colleagues, has enjoyed many successes in his coaching career. The list of accomplishments his players have achieved under his direction include: one current NFL player, two Harlon Hill finalists, six All-Americans, 14 first-team all-conference players, including two most valuable receivers and two most valuable defensive backs. Kelling, a Rochester, Minn., native, received his undergraduate degree from Minnesota State University, Mankato, in physical education. He was a four-year starter at free safety for the Mavericks, two-time first team all-conference, the NCC’s Most Valuable defensive back as a senior, and Football Gazette’s Defensive Player of the Year in 1991. In the fall of 2004, Kelling was inducted into Minnesota State’s Athletic Hall of Fame. Kelling is married to former UND women’s basketball player Megan Kelling (formerly Pick).

GREG BREITBACH OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR/ QUARTERBACKS

WIDE RECEIVERS/ RECRUITING COORDINATOR

Year at UND: 6th year Collegiate Experience: 18th year Hometown: Baker, Mont. Alma Mater: Montana-Western (‘94)

Year at UND: 12th year Collegiate Experience: 14th year Hometown: Bloomington, Minn. Alma Mater: Gustavus Adolphus (‘96)

Greg Breitbach is in his fourth season as UND’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. In his sixth overall with the Fighting Sioux, Breitbach moved to his current position after spending two years as the running backs coach. In 2010, the Fighting Sioux offense racked up 3,554 yards of total offense and averaged 45 points per game in its three home wins. The 104 points combined in victories over Northeastern State and Northwestern State marked just the sixth time in program history that UND tallied triple digits in back-to-back games. Redshirt freshman wide receiver Greg Hardin and junior running back Josh Murray were named to the All-Great West second team after combining for 15 touchdowns and more than 1,500 yards of total offense. Hardin accounted for 10 of those scores, including nine through the air. Under the guidance of Breitbach in 2009, UND produced its 15th straight season with over 3,400 yards of total offense. Ismael Bamba (WR), Mitch Sutton (RB), and Jake Landry (QB) ranked near the top in the Great West Conference in their respective categories and Sutton was named the 2009 GWC Rookie of the Year. In his first year as offensive coordinator, Breitbach guided quarterback Danny Freund into the UND record books as he became the first UND signal caller to account for a trio of 300-yard games in back-to-back seasons. Freund also completed a school-record 72 percent of his passes during his final season. Breitbach also coached the Sioux to high rushing numbers as Murray led the team and the Great West Conference with 1,146 yards rushing. He was the conference player to register a 200-plus yard rushing game—which he did twice. Since Breitbach was elevated to offensive coordinator and UND began the transition to NCAA Division I status, the Fighting Sioux have had four offensive players named to the ESPN the Magazine Academic All-America football team and 16 have been named Great West All-Conference. In 2007, Breitbach mentored All-America running back Ryan Chappell, who set a UND single-season record with 2,180 all-purpose yards, including a school-record 306 rushing yards against Central Washington. As a team, the Sioux ran for more than 2,800 yards during the regular season - its best total in 33 seasons. In 2006, his first season on the Sioux staff, Breitbach coached Chappell to a record-breaking season that saw the freshman become just one of two rookies to earn All-NCC honors. Breitbach came to UND after spending each of the previous three seasons as offensive coordinator at Wisconsin-Stevens Point. While at UWSP, Breitbach helped the Pointers set several offensive team records, including points per game (39.4) and single-season completion percentage (66.1). Breitbach’s 2003 offense led the nation in regular season touchdown passes and ranked among the top 10 nationally in five other offensive categories. That season quarterback Scott Krause garnered Division III All-America first team honors and would later win a Grey Cup championship with the Canadian Football League’s Toronto Argonauts in 2004. Prior to UWSP, Breitbach had stints as special teams coordinator and receivers coach at Lewis & Clark College (1999-2002) and assistant head coach and offensive coordinator at the University of Montana-Western (1996-1998). He also spent the 1993 and 1994 seasons as a graduate assistant at Montana Western. Breitbach received his bachelor’s degree in business education from the University of Montana-Western in 1994 and his master’s degree in education administration from Portland State University in 2002. He played two seasons each at Dickinson (N.D.) State University (1989-90) and Montana-Western (199192). He and his wife, Kara, have three children: daughters Alaina and Jenna, and son, Trent.

TIM BELMORE

COACHING STAFF :: BREITBACH AND BELMORE

Tim Belmore is in his 12th season as wide receivers coach with the Fighting Sioux. In 2009, he also added recruiting coordinator to his list of duties. In 2010, redshirt freshman Greg Hardin burst onto the college football scene, scoring a team-leading 10 touchdowns en route to earning second team AllGreat West honors. Nine of those came through the air and Hardin finished with team highs in receptions (41) and receiving yards (736). Hardin, who had a trio of 100-yard receiving games in 2010, continued the trend for UND receivers, who have produced big numbers under Belmore’s watch. In 2009, Ismael Bamba topped the UND roster with 859 receiving yards and ranked third among GWC receivers in receiving yards per game (78.1) and fifth in receptions per game (4.7). Bamba was one of two players in the conference to log more than three 100-yard receiving performances. As UND’s featured wide receiver in 2008, Brady Trenbeath led UND with 859 yards and eight touchdowns. He ranked among the GWC leaders with four 100-yard contests and was one of three players in the league to record a 200-yard game. Trenbeath was selected to the 2008 ESPN the Magazine Academic All-America second team and was a Great West all-conference team member. After just three years on the roster, Trenbeath finished his career ranked second all-time in receptions (183) and receiving yards (2,341). Prior to the move to Division I, Weston Dressler became a Harlon Hill Trophy finalist as the top player in Division II football and also became just the fourth player in North Central Conference history to be named to four straight All-NCC first teams. Dressler, who now plays with the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders, graduated with nearly every UND receiving record and in the top 20 in Division II history in receptions and touchdown receptions. Playing alongside Dressler in 2006, Trenbeath, then a freshman, established UND rookie records for receptions and receiving yards. Belmore tutored the NCC’s receptions leader in three of UND’s last four seasons in the league and produced the league’s receiving yardage leader in 2007. In 2003, senior wide receiver Willis Stattelman led all NCAA Division II players with 97 catches, while also becoming just the third receiver in school history to total 1,000 receiving yards in a season, joining Ron Gustafson and Jesse Smith. In 2002, Belmore coached Jesse Smith to the highest receiving yardage total (1,011) since Gustafson’s team-record 1,210 yards in 1973. Smith’s 70 catches were also the second-best ever by a Sioux receiver at the time (now fourth-best) and Smith was named an All-NCC first team selection at the conclusion of the 2002 season. The previous two years, Belmore worked with Fighting Sioux wide receiver Dan Graf, who earned first team All-NCC honors in 2000 and 2001 and made three All-America teams in 2001. Prior to UND, Belmore spent two seasons at South Dakota State University, where he was a graduate assistant and coached the wide receivers. A Bloomington, Minn., native, Belmore attended Gustavus Adolphus College, receiving a bachelor’s degree in communications in 1996. He was a four-year letterwinner and all-conference performer in football. After graduation, he coached for two seasons at Gustavus and served as recruiting coordinator. Belmore’s younger brother, Chris, was a quarterback for the Fighting Sioux from 2003-06 and ranks among the top 10 in virtually every passing category at UND.

Josh Kotelnicki, a starting linebacker on UND’s 2001 Division II national championship team, returned to his alma mater in 2008 as the team’s special teams coordinator and inside linebackers coach. It is the second stint as a member of UND’s coaching staff for Kotelnicki, who served as a defensive assistant for the Fighting Sioux in 2004 and 2005, working with the outside linebackers. In 2010, junior Dan Hendrickson topped the Sioux with 78 total tackles, including 54 solo stops, which were the third most in a single season by a UND player in program history. Kotelnicki’s special teams units also enjoyed another successful campaign as Dominique Hawkins was one of the top kick returners in the GWC with a 28.4 average. Hawkins nearly housed a kick return at Montana (Nov. 12) before stepping out of bounds at the one-yard line following a 99-yard scamper. Classmate Josh Murray also had the lone punt return for a score among GWC players, racing a return back 60 yards against Lamar (Oct. 30). In 2009, UND led the Great West in both field goals and extra points with senior Brandon Hellevang leading that charge. He topped both categories, finishing 15for-18 (.833) in field goals and 27-for-28 (.964) in PATs. He recorded two of the GWC’s longest field goals (52 yards) and kicked the season’s longest punt (72 yards). Inside linebacker Andrew Miller was named to the ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District first team and was a member of the FCS ADA Academic All-Star team. He was also awarded the NCAA postgraduate scholarship and the FCS ADA postgraduate scholarship. In his first year back with the Sioux in 2008, Kotelnicki guided the GWC’s top kick return team, which totalled 1,090 yards on 46 returns for an average of 23.7 yards per return. UND’s leading kick returner, Hawkins, led the league with an average of 24.7 return yards per game.

Former Sioux wide receiver Luke Schleusner returned to his alma mater in late March to serve as the team’s tight ends coach. An all-conference wide receiver during his playing days for the Fighting Sioux (1997-2001), Schleusner filled the final vacancy on head coach Chris Mussman’s staff for the 2011 season. Schleusner returns to Grand Forks after spending six seasons as an assistant coach at Minnesota State University, Mankato. The past two seasons, the UND alum was the passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach after spending his first four seasons with the Mavericks as their special teams and recruiting coordinator. The 2009 Minnesota State team finished with a school-record 10 wins and hosted its first ever home playoff game. The Mavericks ranked second in scoring in the NSIC that season (38.2 ppg). Schleusner’s first collegiate coaching stint was as Western Illinois where he also received his master’s degree in sport management (2004). While with the Leathernecks, Schleusner was the special teams coordinator and tight ends coach. Western Illinois twice reached the NCAA FCS quarterfinals (2002 and 2003) during his tenure. As a player at UND, Schleusner caught 57 passes during his senior season, but none were bigger than his 58-yard reception on a fourth-and-4 play in the final minute of the 2001 NCAA Division II national championship game. Schleusner’s reception helped set up a one-yard touchdown plunge that gave UND a 17-14 victory over Grand Valley State. He earned All-North Central Conference honors during the 2001 season after racking up 762 receiving yards and eight touchdowns. Schleusner led the Sioux with 16 catches for 191 yards during their postseason run. Schleusner earned a degree in sociology in 2001 from UND and was twice an AllNCC academic honoree.

Kotelnicki spent the 2007 season as a defensive graduate assistant at Kansas State where he coached the outside linebackers and assisted with special teams. Ian Campbell was a unanimous first team All-Big 12 selection as an outside linebacker. Prior to his stint in Manhattan, Kotelnicki served as the defensive coordinator at Truman State (Mo.) in 2006 where he helped the Bulldogs to a four-win improvement from the previous season. The Bulldogs’ scoring defense improved from ninth in the MIAA in 2005 to tied for fourth in 2006. While at UND from 2004-05, the Sioux went 21-6 and boasted one of the top defensive units in Division II in each of those two seasons. During that time, Tony Hermes (2004) and Tyler Dahlen (2005) received first team All-NCC honors, while Brook Maier (2005) and Tyler Dahlen (2004) received second team honors. Kotelnicki began his coaching career at Murray State (Ky.) University, where he served as the Racers’ linebackers coach and assistant offensive line coach for two seasons. While at Murray State, Kotelnicki helped the Racers improve their pass defense from 64th nationally to fourth in just one season. He also helped the offense set a school record with 2,849 rushing yards in a single season. A 2002 graduate of UND, Kotelnicki served as a team captain for the 2001 national championship game against Grand Valley State.

2011 NORTH DAKOTA FOOTBALL QUARTERBACKS ACKS eparture of senior captain Jake With the departure Landry, the competition for his replacement is up for grabs going into fall camp. “Brent Goska and Joey Bradley were neck-andneck coming out of spring ball,” Mussman said. “Marcus Hendrickson also had a nice spring and is not too far behind those two. Then, Chris Comes is a youngster that did not get as many reps in spring ball as he probably would have liked, but he has some potential and just needs to continue to work hard and good things are going to come for him. “Each of those guys brings something different to the table, but the one who can command the offense and get the most out of the guys around him will be the starter. Early on, all those guys will be in the mix, but we will get that figured out as quickly as we can.” Goska and Hendrickson both saw action late in the season, replacing the injured ed Landry. In four starts, Goska completed d 42-of-77 42 4 2-of-77 passes for 413 yards and a touchdown, while Hendrickson threw for 131 yards in reserve duty down the stretch. Bradley enrolled at UND in January after leading the California Community College ranks in passing yards per game. As a freshman at Diablo Valley, Bradley threw for 3,636 yards and 33 touchdowns. RECEIVERS It is no secret that the Sioux have a No. 1 wide receiver in sophomore Greg Hardin (pictured to the right), but for Mussman and wide receivers coach Tim Belmore, one of the goals of fall camp will be to find a No. 2 and No. 3 guy to go along w i t h him.

stat “Greg is deceptive and you don’t think staturewise he can do what he does does, but he has the ability to pull away from people,” Mussman said. “We saw that at NIU last season. We just need to get a couple guys around him that can complement him, so our quarterback can disperse the ball around a little more.” One of the top choices to complement Hardin, who caught 41 passes for 736 yards and nine touchdowns in 2010, is senior Chris Anderson. The Duluth native was the only other receiver with multiple touchdowns a season ago. “Chris is a senior that we expect to step up and take on that challenge,” Mussman said. “He has continued to make strides and show glimpses of the type of receiver he can be. Now, it’s time for Chris to put it together on Saturday.” Expectations were high for sophomore Blair Townsend going into last fall camp, but an injury brought a premature end to his season. a well, Townsend After missing spring ball as is expected to be 100 percent by August and Mu Mussman is intrigued to see how the tall target bounces ba back. “We had high B hopes for Blair going into last an those have not season and changed,” the head coach said. “He has worked hard ba on the field and to get back b his first real test this will be ho he responds.” to see how Another young wideout that was thro thrown into the mix last season as a true freshman was R.J. McGi McGill. Mussman said the experience from last season div should pay dividends for McGill sop entering his sophomore campaign. He caught 19 pa passes for 119 yards. “R.J. really came on as the season progressed and h he should be much improved with pla playing last season.” Junior Jon Heimle Heimler has also been plagued by the injur injury bug throughout his UND career, but if h he can stay healthy, Mussman feels like the Colfax, Wis., native has some pote potential to contribute this season. Redshirt freshman Tyrhy Ivery is a young wideout that impressed at times during spring drills and goin to keep a close Mussman is going progr eye on his progress this fall to see how he’ll be able to help out cam during the campaign. Competing for playing along w with the returning r wide receivers will be a trio of true freshmen:

TEAM INFORMATION :: 2011 FIGHTING SIOUX OUTLOOK

Casey Young, Marco Barientos and Jameer Jackson. Mussman said all three of those young guys will get their chance to impress this fall and possibly earn playing time right away. TAILBACKS The top spot in the backfield belongs to junior Mitch Sutton. Injuries slowed down the 2009 Great West Conference Rookie of the Year a season ago, but he bounced back during spring drills to tighten his grip on the No. 1 tailback spot. Sutton accounted for 288 yards a season ago and both of his touchdowns came in the near-upset of Montana. Sophomore Jake Miller, who along with McGill were the only two true freshmen to play last season, took advantage of some increased work in the spring to lock down the No. 2 tailback spot behind Sutton. “Jake had a really nice spring for us and he continues to impress the coaching staff,” Mussman said. “He has good speed and has a nice grasp on the offense. Miller racked up 197 yards on only 35 carries last season, showing he could play at the FCS level. He also found the end zone three times in his limited duty. Reserve fullback Ethan Magstadt also got some reps at the tailback spot during the spring and provides Mussman and offensive coordinator Greg Breitbach with a nice change of pace if needed, especially in shortyardage situations. “Ethan really showed us what he could when given the chance this spring,” Mussman said. “He had some hardnosed runs that really caught my eye.” Junior Spencer Bickel and redshirt freshman Adam Shaugabay also took enough reps during the spring to give Mussman some confidence with the depth he has at that position. Bickel was also a key special teams performer and Mussman is glad to have his services back in that department. Sophomore Breon Butler suffered an injury during the spring and will miss the entire 2011 season. True freshmen Romon Bridges, P.J. Sparks and Jer Garman, like the rookie wideouts, will get some looks. Mussman said if those guys can help, then they will could see the field this season. Fullbacks Catlin Solum (pictured on page 41) returns for his senior season and will captain the offense. “He is kind of anchor guy for us,” Mussmand said. “Catlin is a blue-collar football player. He is one of the hardest working guys in the offseason, does things the right way on and off the field – a true character guy. You win with guys like that.”


Fg

2011 NORTH DAKOTA FOOTBALL

Solum had a career-high 15 receptions for 99 yards a season ago, proving to be a viable receiving threat out of the backfield. Magstadt, as mentioned before, will play a dualrole and be his back-up. Travis Greenwaldt will provide depth behind those two. OFFENSIVE LINE Cohesion was a good descriptor for the 2010 Fighting Sioux offensive line. The same five guys started all 11 games a season ago and the three inside guys are back to anchor this year’s line. Joe Kleason returns to his left guard spot, while Ian McGurran, a two-year starter along the front line, is back at center. Emmett Lynch holds down the right guard spot. The two starters at the tackle spots will be determined during fall camp, but Mussman says a trio of veteran linemen will be the ones likely vying for those positions vacated by Creighton Schroyer and Keith Queoff. “At the tackles Quiz (Brandon Quesenberry), Caleb Gillson and Darren Denui will be the guys were are

oking at to fi fillll those two spots, spots”” Mussman ssm looking said. “Connor McKendry is another veteran that has a chance and will be a guy we can swing inside and outside.” As for depth, Mussman noted that redshirt freshman Shea Walker had a good spring working at center after the St. Paul native was moved there prior to the beginning of the drills. Walker was part of a movement implored by Mussman, who took back the reigns of coaching the O-line this past spring, to make guys play several different positions along the offensive front. “I did not want guys to get to comfortable in one spot,” he said. “We shuffled guys around and have some decent moving parts now if injuries happen or guys struggle. “Shea is probably the next guy at center. He can also play guard because he is physical enough to play there. Jake Hoerchner had a decent spring too and he, along with Dwayne Pecosky will provide depth at the guard spots for us. Da “Two other redshirts, Darren Peterson and D De vin Barton, still nee Devin need some seasoning b be efo fore they will be ready before ready, but they are not too ffarr away.” fa T TI IGH G T ENDS TIGHT Juni Ju nior Seth Wist Junior Wisthoff returns as the st star tar a ter for the Sioux and provided starter a veteran v teran p ve presence for one of the newest members of UND’s offensive ccoaching staff – Luke SSchleusner Sc hleusner – to work with.

Two other tight ends who co could see some playing time for the Sioux in 2011 are youngsters Joe Kingery and Taylor Grant. “Joe had a great offseason and really made some big strides,” Mussman added. “Taylor continues to develop and he is going to be a really good tight end one day, just needs to continue to put the work in.” DEFENSIVE LINE When Mussman glances at his roster, he is always comforted by the guys he has on the defensive front. “I think this is the most experienced group across the board of any position that we have,” he said. “Ross Brenneman has been very impressive throughout his career and he continues to get better. Broc Bellmore is the same way and he had a great offseason. We have high expectations for Broc this year. “ Brenneman led the Sioux with four sacks a season ago as both he and Bellmore finished with 35 tackles. Jay Nelson can spell both Brenneman and Bellmore on the ends.

Devin Benjamin is a physical presence at nose guard. He was Ty Boyle’s back-up a season ago, seeig action in all 11 games and making 15 tackles. Mussman likes that the junior from Minneapolis can handle the big centers his squad will face in 2011. Behind Benjamin is redshirt freshman Ben Henson. “Ben had a great spring,” Mussman said. “He did a good job of stepping up and earning some playing time.” Mussman noted that the coaching staff is still looking for another end to step up and be able to fill in on occasion for his book-end B’s. Those candidates are redshirt freshmen Spencer Cummings and Ekenna Anya-Gafu. “Both of those guys did some nice things in the spring for us and have the potential to be that fourth defensive end,” Mussman said. Seth Stanchik is returning from injury and depending on how that goes, could find his way into the playing rotation. “He is one more guy from this group that gives us quality depth, after that we are going to be inexperienced, Mussman said. “But those first three or four guys are pretty good and will be fun to watch.” LINEBACKERS On the inside, senior Dan Hendrickson (pictured on page 42) is back along with classmate Mitch Goertz. “Dan is not only a special teams guy, but he is our best inside linebacker and is one of the leaders on this football team. He is an all-conference type of player.” Hendrickson led the Sioux with 78 stops a season ago, including eight tackles for a loss. “Goertz made a lot of strides as a junior and

2011 NORTH DAKOTA FOOTBALL really came on att th the end d off th the season,” id “Those two inside guys make Mussman said. a pretty good combination.” Sophomore Garrison Goodman got a lot of reps last year in a reserve role. He made 25 tackles and will serve as a backup along with classmate Brian Otto. “Brian has battled through injuries and this is his first time really being healthy, so we are excited to see what he can bring to the mix,” Mussman said. Ben Peters is another young guy that will get his chance along with fellow redshirt freshman Joey Walker. “Both of those redshirts did what we asked of them last year and really showed signs of being a good ball players,” Mussman added. On the outside, the Sioux have some talent to replace, but even though it is a rather young unit, Mussman is excited to see what this group can do. “On the strong side, we have Damon Andrews. He had a really good freshman year and an even better. spring,” Mussman said. “Another young guy over there is Cordero Finley. He is a kid with all the tools, big, strong and physical. We just need to build some confidence in him because he can realy play.” On the weak side, sophomore Dominique Bennett is back after seeing action in all 11 games as a reserve. Bennett made 14 tackles, including 4.5 for a loss in a limited role. “He is one of the most athletic guys on the team and he really stepped up in the spring to enter fall camp on top of the depth chart,” Mussman said. Senior Johnnie Daniels also made big strides during the spring. The transfer from Western Michigan is expected to see his role increase in 2011. Three redshirt freshmen will be pushing the guys ahead of them to try and crack the rotation. That trio includes Derrick Dulaney, Myles Jablonski and Alex Hickel are all young, but got some chances in the spring to impress and will do so again in fall camp. SECONDARY Mussman likes the mix of guys he has at the cornerback spot. The newest member of the coaching staff, Benny Boyd, will be in charge of getting this group to play at its best. Chavon Mackey worked his way into the starting rotation as a redshirt freshman, finishing the season with 45 tackles and a team-best six pass break-ups. Senior Kenny Watkins will be pushing Mackey on the right side. The two-time letterwinner played in five games a year ago, making 16 tackles.

d redshirt d hi t freshman f h D l Brown B wiill be b and Daryl will battling for the top spot spot. Hall saw actio action in nine games and ranked second on the team with two interceptions in 2010.

Brett Cameron is back as the punter and Mussman said he has the chance to be an allconference type of player at that spot. “Brett is always working at perfecting his craft.”

“Our corners are an athletic bunch that we expect to play really well this season,” Mussman said. “It is another young group, but being able to get some experience last season will only help them this year.”

Back handling the placekicking duties is sophomore Zeb Miller. “We expect to see an improved player this season out of Zeb,” Mussman said. “He was in some tough spots last year, but as he gets older we are confident he will make more and more of those kicks as time goes on.”

Senior Dominique Hawkins was a starting corner a season ago, but made the move to strong safety in the spring. He will be flanked by classmates Justin Belotti and Mitch Kudrna at free safety. “We moved some other guys around and put Hawkins and Kudrna at the safety spots, Mussman said. “Those two have played a lot of football for us and done everything we have asked of them. “ Belotti emerged as the starter at the free safety in the spring. He had 18 tackles in a reserve role last season. “Our safeties are an experienced crew,” Mussman said. “ As s, they made young guys, akes, but some mistakes, ed from they learned ngs and those things have gotten better.” veral true There are several freshmen waiting in the wingss as the ackfield defensive backfi nt of was a point emphasis for 1 the 2011 recruiting class.

Grand Forks native Tanner Naastad will be his backup. Cameron is also serviceable there if we need him and will help on kickoffs. As for the return game, Mussman said that is kind up in the air entering fall camp. “We have some veterans that had to handle those duties more out of necessity in the past, but we will see if any of these young freshman can take some of the burden off guys like Dom Hawkins and Erik Mersereau,” Mussman said. “One of these true freshmen could find his niche returning kicks and punts. Right now, this is one we will take a close look at during fall camp and get some answers.”

MOSCOW, Idaho - Mental mistakes, turnovers, and missed opportunities proved costly for North Dakota as the Fighting Sioux fell to Idaho 45-0 in the 2010 season opener at the Kibbie Dome.

DEKALB, ILL. – With the chance to complete a comeback and upset Northern Illinois in its home opener, North Dakota‘s quest fell just short as the Huskies held on for a 23-17 victory on Saturday at Turpin Stadium.

Three Sioux drives came to a close due to fumbles and two more ended with Idaho interceptions.

UND cut the margin to six with a late fourth-quarter field goal and after forcing an NIU punt, had the ball with 57 ticks remaining and was a touchdown away from defeating a FBS opponent for the first time in school history.

Much of Idaho’s success was due to quarterback Nathan Enderle. The Davey O’Brien Watch List member went 24-for-37 with 311 yards and a pair of touchdown passes, engineering an attack that generated 547 yards of total offense. In the second quarter, Enderle hit Justin Vultung on a 44-yard pass, his longest toss of the game. The game had been a defensive duel up to that point, but the Vultung touchdown put the Vandals ahead 17-0 and firmly in control the rest of the way. Idaho jumped right back on the Sioux to open the second half, succesfully attempting an onside kick. Just five plays later, Troy Vital punched in a 1-yard touchdown plunge to make it a 24-0 game. On Idaho’s ensuing possession, Enderle orchestrated a seven-play, 69-yard drive that ended with his second touchdown pass of the game, a two-yard connection to Eric Greenwood. With the Vandals well on their way to victory, Idaho reserve quarterback Brian Reader relieved Enderle and promptly found Armauni Johnson on a 54yard scoring strike just 1:09 into the fourth quarter, extending their lead to 38-0. Princeton McCarty capped the scoring with a 27-yard scamper - his second of the night - with under two minutes to play. McCarty finished with 89 rushing yards on 12 carries to lead all runners. Passing yardage was another key differential as UND picked up just 122 yards compared to Idaho’s 399 yards. UND senior quarterback Jake Landry (Grand Forks, N.D.) was 19-for-34 for 122 yards. Reserve QB Brent Goska came on for a few plays late in the game, but picked up no passing yards. Goska was more effective on the ground, gaining 47 yards on six carries.

That iniital FBS victory would have to wait though as senior quarterback Jake Landry (Grand Forks, N.D.) misfired on his final two pass attempts as time expired, allowing NIU to escape with the six-point victory.

Defensively, UND was led by linebacker Dan Hendrickson, who finished with seven tackles (four unassisted) and a quarterback sack. He was one of three players to bring down the quarterback.

“What I wanted to see from week one to week two was improvement,”UND head coach Chris Mussman said. “The effort tonight was outstanding. I saw the football team that I thought we had. We are disappointed in the loss, but I’m proud of the effort and the way we performed.” Led by redshirt freshman Greg Hardin (WR, Bellvue, Neb.), UND tallied 267 yards through the air. Hardin accounted for a career-high 171 of those yards himself, including a stunning 85-yard fingertip touchdown from Landry. The senior signal caller finished 18-for-31 for 267 yards and his touchdown toss to Hardin was the longest of his career. For the second game in a row, junior Dan Hendrickson (LB, Minot, N.D.) led the defensive efforts with a career-high nine tackles (seven unassisted). Junior cornerback Dominique Hawkins (Plymouth, Minn.) stepped in with an interception just before the half and took it in for UND’s first touchdown of the year. He also added four solo tackles. Also chiming in with big plays, blocks to be exact, were redshirt freshman Darren DeNeui (Chandler, S.D.) and junior wide receiver Chris Anderson (Duluth, Minn.). Stepping in on special teams, DeNeui, a 6-foot-8 offensive lineman, blocked a 27-yard field goal attempt in the second quarter. Anderson’s punt block late in the fourth quarter set UND up for a pivotal field goal. However, it was the combination of quarterback Chandler Harnish and running back Chad Spann that ultimately made the difference for Northern Illinois. Harnish finished 14-for25 for 146 yards and a touchdown pass. He also added 178 yards on the ground, including a 40-yard run. Spann, who ran the opening play in for a 79-yard touchdown, recorded 140 yards on 21 carries and another 20 yards on three receptions. “I knew North Dakota was going to be a good football team” head NIU coach Jerry Kill said. “That program has always done a great job. I have a lot of respect for that team.”

Northeastern State . . . . . . . . . . . . .14 North Dakota . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .55 GRAND FORKS, N.D. – In their 2010 home opener and annual Potato Bowl USA game, the Fighting Sioux trounced the RiverHawks of Northeastern State 55-14. The 9,719 fans in attendance at the Alerus Center were treated to a brand new pre-game introduction and in-game thumping by the home team.

For the third week in a row, the pair hooked up for several explosive plays to lead an offensive onslaught by the Sioux that totaled more than 500 yards of offense in a 49-24 win over Northwestern State at the Alerus Center. Landry, UND’s senior quarterback from Grand Forks, N.D., connected with Hardin, a redshirt freshman wide receiver out of Bellevue, Neb., for three first-half scoring strikes that turned an early three-point Sioux deficit into an 18-point halftime lead.

Redshirt freshman wide receiver Greg Hardin (Bellevue, Neb.), who had a record-setting game at Northern Illinois last Saturday, demonstrated his big-play ability in the first quarter, hauling in a 19-yard scoring pass from Jake Landry (Grand Forks, N.D.), then taking a handoff 63 yards to paydirt on the ensuing possession to put UND ahead 14-0.

After NSU opened the scoring on a 28-yard field goal midway through the first quarter, Landry found Hardin on UND’s first play from scrimmage, hitting him in stride for a 52-yard scoring connection.

Landry finished 10-for-14 for 145 yards to lead UND to a season-high 509 yards of total offense, including 357 rushing yards. Junior running back Josh Murray (Pepin, Wis.) scampered for 131 yards on 13 carries, including a 9-yard run late in the first quarter that built a 21-0 lead for the Sioux.

In his UND debut, true freshman Jake Miller (Bismarck, N.D.) finished with 77 yards on 11 carries, including a pair of touchdowns. He helped UND take a 31-0 lead to the locker room at halftime with a 1-yard touchdown run. Miller’s first collegiate touchdown was followed by a 37-yard Zeb Miller (Ankeny, Iowa) field goal in the second quarter. By halftime, UND had amassed 357 yards of total offense, including 220 on the ground, while holding NSU to 81 yards of offense. It was Miller time again in the third quarter, as kicker Zeb Miller split the uprights from 28 yards out, and Jake Miller notched his second scoring run of the game with a 39-yard jaunt to the end zone. Brent Goska (Wisconsin Rapids, Wis.), in relief of Landry, found the end zone from one yard out with 3:51 left in the third quarter, putting the Sioux ahead 48-0. Linebacker Dan Hendrickson had a lot to do with NSU’s inability to gain much-needed yardage. The junior from Minot, N.D., racked up eight tackles, including several highlight-reel stops on kickoff coverage, and added a fumble recovery in the first three quarters of play. Classmate Ross Cochran (Kenosha, Wis.) added two sacks. “Yeah, they were a DII team, but it was still a physical game,” Hendrickson said. “At the end of the day, it’s not about the other team, it’s about us. We just need to go out there every week and do the same things, no matter who we are playing against.” With one more tackle in the final stanza, Hendrickson finished with nine total stops and tied his single-game high set last weekend at Northern Illinois (Sept. 11).

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The Jake Landry-Greg Hardin combination is quickly becoming a lethal -- and winning -formula for the Fighting Sioux combination.

“The line did a great job of opening up some huge holes for us today,” Murray said. “Even moving downfield, we were getting some great blocks to open up even more space.”

The Demons regained the lead on the ensuing possession when Adrian Reese hauled in a 40-yard touchdown pass from tailback Rumeall Morris, but the Sioux again countered with the Landry-Hardin connection in the second quarter.

104 2010 SEASON IN REVIEW :: GAME RECAPS

This time, the scoring play went for 76 yards as Landry found Hardin on a crossing pattern at the sideline, and the fleetfooted receiver turned it up field with no defender in sight to make it a 14-10 lead. UND would not trail again as the SIoux extended the lead with another big passing play on the next drive. Landry found a wide-open Chris Anderson (Jr., WR, Duluth, Minn.) down the seam for a 71-yard touchdown. After a Justin Belotti (Jr., DB, Kenosha, Wis.) interception - the first of his career - in NSU territory late in the half, the Sioux again turned to the quick-strike offense. On the first play of that drive, Landry heaved the ball into the end zone where Hardin’s defender had fallen, and the redshirt freshman hauled in his third touchdown grab of the day. That catch once again solidified Hardin’s place in the UND annals. He tied Weston Dressler, Jim Kleinsasser, Jeff McElroy, Tim Gelinske, and Tracy Martin for the most single-game touchdown receptions and finished just shy of the all-time record of four touchdown receptions notched by Jesse Smith in the Nov. 17, 2001 playoff game against Winona State. “Greg has the ability to turn a throw into a big play,” Landry said. “And we have a few other guys who are stepping up and making plays. Chris Anderson showed us how fast he was today and Ryan Dressler had a couple of big catches. Greg is getting the exposure right now, and he definitely deserves it, but there are some other guys around him that are great players as well.” Anderson’s 71-yard touchdown catch in the third quarter not only sealed Northwestern’s fate, but it also marked his longest-career reception and the second touchdown of his career. He finished with 75 yards on two catches.

North Dakota . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .17 South Dakota. . . . . . . . . . . . . . 27 VERMILLION, S.D. - The last time North Dakota traveled to Vermillion, S.D., the Fighting Sioux handed the Coyotes a 34-31 overtime loss. This year, South Dakota (3-2, 1-0 GWC) took care of business as the Sioux (2-3, 0-1 GWC) fell to USD 27-17 in front of a DakotaDome crowd of 9,596.

Making many of the offensive plays for UND was junior running back Josh Murray. The Pepin, Wis., native led the team in both rushing (102) and receiving (37) yards. He also picked up 73 yards on kickoff returns. Defensively, junior cornerback Dominique Hawkins (Plymouth, Minn.) led UND with 10 tackles (six unassisted). Seniors Ryan Kasowski (LB, Grand Forks, N.D.) and Kris Ankenbauer (DB, Murphy, Texas) came away with six stops apiece. Kasowski picked up UND’s lone sack when he hit Dante Warren for a loss of seven yards. The Coyote defense was paced by Adam Broders, who recorded 10 stops (four unassisted) and was credited with a fumble recovery and an interception. Shea Williams finished with eight tackles and Chris Frierson recorded six stops and the team’s other interception. South Dakota amassed just four plays on its opening drive before the Sioux took over on their own 13-yard line. Landry went to Murray on all but two plays to move the ball 59 yards and set Zeb Miller up for a career-long 44-yard field goal.

The game started on a high note for North Dakota (2-4, 0-2 GWC) as the Fighting Sioux capped their opening drive with a 7-yard touchdown pass from Jake Landry (Sr., QB, Grand Forks, N.D.) to Greg Hardin (RFr., WR, Bellevue, Neb.).

“That was a critical time in the game,” said head coach Chris Mussman. “That’s exactly what we didn’t need at that point in the game. We needed to get a stop. It wasn’t like they were doing anything we didn’t know they were going to do, we just got beat on things we knew were coming.”

The Coyotes kept a tight lid on the Sioux passing game, which was a major factor in their past two victories. Despite a season-high 20 completions, senior quarterback Jake Landry (Grand Forks, N.D.) was held to 172 yards and his favorite target, redshirt freshman Greg Hardin (Bellevue, Neb.), picked up just 30 yards on a trio of receptions and was held to just a single touchdown for the first time in three games.

GRAND FORKS, N.D. –Southern Utah scored 31 straight points to rally past the Fighting Sioux and spoil UND’s Homecoming festivities in front of an Alerus Center crowd of 10,215. The Thunderbirds erased a two-touchdown defecit to keep the Sioux winless in Great West play with a 31-21 victory.

The Coyotes were led by quarterback Dante Warren, who not only picked up 268 yards on 20-for-32 passing, but added another 44 yards via a dozen rushes. Warren hit Will Powell for a pair of touchdowns, including a 20-yard scoring pass. Warren’s biggest play of the game came when he found Jeremy Blount on the far sideline for a 65-yard pass to give USD a 14-3 lead.

USD’s Kevin Robb was credited with nine points with three PATs and field goals of 35 and 45 yards. He tried to make it 12 points, but his 43-yard attempt in the third quarter was brought down by junior Broc Bellmore (West Fargo, N.D.). The block was Bellmore’s second of the season and third against South Dakota.

More scoring followed three minutes later with a UND recordbreaking interception return by Joel Schwenzfeier (Sr., SS, Hallock, Minn.), who raced back 100 yards to surpass Kelly Howe’s (1996-99) 97-yard interception-to-touchdown return in 1998.

After a silent first quarter, the Cardinals scored on the first play of the second to take a 6-0 lead, but the Sioux were able to block the point-after attempt. UND’s answer was immediate as they capped a five-play, 60-yard drive with a 13-yard rush by junior Josh Murray (Pepin, Wis.). Redshirt freshman Zeb Miller’s (Ankeny, Iowa) point after proved to be the game-winner as UND held Lamar scoreless for the remainder of the game.

With five minutes remaining, UND had one last chance to regain the lead with a 41-yard field goal, but Zeb Miller’s kick sailed wide left. The Fighting Sioux (2-5, 0-3 GWC) finished with 306 yards total offence. Redshirt freshman Greg Hardin (Bellevue, Neb.) led the way with 136 yards on six receptions, including a 47yard touchdown grab from senior quarterback Jake Landry (Grand Forks, N.D.). Landry finished 17-for-25 for 222 yards. On the ground, junior Josh Murray (Pepin, Wis.) tallied 48 yards on eight carries with a touchdown. Sophomore Mitch Score Sutton (Plover, Wis.) added another 33 yards.

Cal Poly reached the end zone first, but it was not an easy task as the Mustangs used 18 plays to move the ball 78 yards down the field. Smith capped the drive with a four-yard scamper on fourth-and-goal.

Miller also connected on a 28-yard field goal early in the third quarter to give UND a 17-6 advantage.

After forcing UND’s second three-and-out, the Mustangs STATISTICAL LEADERS found the end zone once again early in the second quarter Rushing (Att-Yds-TD) UND: Landry 8-54-0, Sutton10-33-0, Hardin thanks to big plays by Rogers. Now trailing 13-0 with just under two minutes remaining in the half, the UND special teams unit opened a lane for junior Dominique Hawkins (Plymouth, Minn.) following the score. Hawkins took the kickoff back 48 yards to the Cal Poly 43-yard line. On the ensuing play, Landry aired it out to an open Hardin for a UND touchdown. Hawkins finished with 71 yards on kick returns and defensively, he landed six tackles (five solo). The 43-yard touchdown pass marked the eighth TD connection from Landry to Hardin on the season and it was also UND’s initial first down of the game. The Sioux would go to the locker room trailing 13-7 after a Schwenzfeier interception closed out the first 30 minutes of play. It took the Sioux just 90 seconds to find the end zone and take a 14-13 advantage. The score came thanks to some razzledazzle as Landry took the snap and handed off to Murray, who shuffled to his right before tossing a 25-yard TD pass to Hardin. After forcing the Mustangs to another three and out, the UND offense lit up the board once again. Landry used Sutton, Murray, and freshman R.J. McGill (Phoenix, Ariz.) to move the ball 40 yards on five plays. The Sioux capped the drive with a five-yard run by Murray. Landry quickly handed off to Murray in front of heavy traffic. It initially looked like he wouldn’t gain much ground, if any, but he managed to snake his way through the Mustang defense and into the far corner of the end zone. With the PAT from Miller, UND stood tall with a 21-13 lead over Cal Poly with 9:08 left in the third quarter.

Lamar . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6 North Dakota . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 31 GRAND FORKS, N.D. – Led by junior quarterback Brent Goska, North Dakota snapped a three-game skid with a commanding 31-6 win over Lamar at the Alerus Center for Saturday’s Pink Ribbon Bowl. With the non-conference win, the Fighting Sioux improved to 3-5 overall. Lamar dropped to 3-5.

The Sioux rallied from an early 13-0 deficit to take a 21-13 advantage midway through the third quarter, unfortunately, the Mustangs returned the favor, scoring nine unanswered points to preserve the one-point victory.

Mark Rogers led the way for Cal Poly (5-3, 1-1 GWC) as the Mustangs piled up 326 yards of total offense. Rogers tallied 94 yards rushing with two touchdowns and also caught two passes for 10 yards. Quarterback Tony Smith was 12-for-16 for 80 yards.

HALL OF FAME GAME

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - It was a through and through, back-and-forth battle on both sides of the ball, but Cal Poly emerged as the victor, defeating North Dakota 22-21 in Great West Conference action at Alex G. Spanos Stadium.

Defensively, junior linebacker Dan Hendrickson (Minot, N.D.) led both teams with a career-high 10 tackles (eight unassisted).

The Fighting Sioux finished with 223 yards rushing and 229 yard passing for 452 total offensive yards - the best offensive showing since the 49-24 win over Northwestern State on Sept. 25. Lamar was held to 116 yards on the ground and 149 in the air. Coming off of the field with a big smile on his face, head coach Chris Mussman simply said, “You don’t know how good that feels.” This was the first collegiate start for Goska. The junior from Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., moved into the starting position after senior Jake Landry (Grand Forks, N.D.) suffered a career-ending injury last Saturday at Cal Poly. When asked what impressed him most about Goska’s play, Mussman summed it up in just one word, “Toughness.” “He rushed for close to 100 yards on 16 carries and really gave us more of an ability to run the option than we have in the past,” said Mussman. “I thought he did a great job of utilizing his skills. He did exactly what he thought he could do. He did exactly what we thought he could do.” Goska also threw the ball efficiently, finishing 18-of-24 through the air for 229 passing yards, including a career-long 57-yard touchdown pass to senior Jarrel Davis (Miami, Fla.).

North Dakota . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 0 South Dakota State . . . . . . . . . . . . .21 BROOKINGS, S.D. - In the 2010 football season finale, South Dakota State finally got its revenge over North Dakota as it shutout the Fighting Sioux 21-0 at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium. It took the Jackrabbits (5-6) just three minutes to build a 6-0 lead over the Sioux (3-8). UND was lucky to only be trailing by six after SDSU used a nice return on the opening kickoff to set up the first field goal, then a fumble recovery on the ensuing kickoff put the Jacks right back in primo-scoring territory. After that opening three-minute flurry, UND began to work its way back into scoring position, but Dirk Kool put an end to the drive with an interception. The Jacks made little work of their next drive, but after forcing the Sioux to a punt on a fourth-and-one, they took the ball 63 yards on eight plays for their first touchdown of the game. After taking its 14-0 lead into the second quarter, SDSU racked up some insurance points with a five-yard touchdown run from Tyler Duffy. With the point-after attempt from Shafrath, the Jacks took a 21-0 lead and that would go on to be the final score as both teams were shutout after halftime. Led by quarterback Thomas O’Brien, SDSU finished with 356 yards of offense. O’Brien went 19-for-38 for 235 yards and went the entire game without an interception. His longest pass was a 50-yard toss to Tyrel Kool, who finished with 105 yards on six catches. Duffy finished with 127 yards on 36 attempts and scored both of SDSU’s touchdowns. The offensive struggles from the Montana game carried over into this contest as the Sioux were held to just 185 yards of total offense. Goska was 11-for-27 for 90 yards, while junior Josh Murray (RB, Pepin, Wis.) tallied 50 yards on 12 attempts and 36 yards on five receptions. Defensively, junior Mitch Goertz (LB, Rothschild, Wis.) finished with a game-high 13 tackles (six unassisted). Heading into the half, Goertz had already racked up a careerhigh 10 stops. He also registered a pass breakup and nearly picked off O’Brien twice. Senior Joel Schwenzfeier (DB, Hallock Minn.) landed 10 tackles (three solo) and junior Dan Hendrickson (LB, Minot, N.D.) finished with nine (four solo). Senior Kris Ankenbauer (DB, Murphy, Texas) tallied a forced fumble and sophomore Devin Benjamin (So., Minneapolis, Minn.) notched his second and the team’s seventh blocked kick of the season. SDSU’s Mike Lien finished with 12 tackles, including a sack and Derek Domino landed 10 stops. Both Brodier and Kool picked up interceptions and Anthony Wise registered SDSU’s second force fumble. GAME NOTES: All-time, the Fighting Sioux are 605-366-30 (.604) on the gridiron ... Today’s captains: Jake Landry, Ryan Kasowski, Creighton Schroyer, and Nick Long ... Attendance: 3,900 ...

2011 NORTH DAKOTA FOOTBALL

MISSION It is our mission to physically and mentally prepare the student-athlete for the rigors of collegiate athletics, by implementing professionally designed, scientifically sound training programs, designed specifically to reduce the incidence of injury and help each team and student-athlete reach their full athletic potential.

PHILOSOPHY We believe that strength and conditioning is crucial to the complete development of the student-athlete. The philosophy of our strength and conditioning program is based on the belief that what occurs in the weight room and field transfers to the playing surface. We train sport specifically with the goal of enhancing athleticism. We also believe in the importance of work ethic, attitude, accountability and mental toughness and that these qualities can be developed and enhanced through our strength and conditioning program. At the University of North Dakota, one program, functioning behind the scenes, but which should not be taken lightly, is the strength and conditioning program. The strength and conditioning program at UND is among the finest in Division I and vital to the success of all UND athletic teams. The strength and conditioning staff commits themselves to the development of size, strength, power, speed, agility, conditioning, and body composition of each student-athlete. The goal of the strength staff is to develop the athlete and team to reach their maximum potential throughout their career while staying injury free. Nate Baukol, director of strength and conditioning, oversees the program and facilities. Baukol has three full-time assistant coaches and one graduate assistant coach to assist him. Together they direct and monitor the training of over 450 studentathletes in 20 sports at UND. UND also boasts some of the finest strength training facilities around. The facilities include the Ralph Engelstad Arena weight room, the Memorial Stadium weight room, and the Hyslop Sports Center weight room.

spending as much time on physical development as any other part of their sport throughout the year. Student-athletes follow either offseason or in-season programs, which are individualized specific to the athlete and sport. Off-season programs are five days a week, summer months included. Each athlete receives a comprehensive summer training manual to follow, given that a member of the strength staff won’t be supervising them. In-season programs are typically 45-minute sessions, two to three days per week, supervised by the strength and conditioning staff. The University of North Dakota’s football weight room and locker room in Memorial Stadium offer Fighting Sioux football players outstanding facilities in which to train and prepare themselves to compete in one of the toughest conferences in FCS football. The weight training facility and equipment was provided with the assistance of Jim and Joann McKay, UND Class of 1955 and John and Brenda Miller, UND Class of 1980.

Training has become a year-round activity, with a student-athlete

If there is a story told about UND football in the 60s and 70s, chances are Eugene “Gene” Murphy is a part of it. “Murph” was a three-year letterwinner (1960, 1961, and 1962) and team captain in 1962 before starting his coaching career at UND. An assistant coach from 1963-77, he took over as head coach for Jerry Olson in 1978. His head coaching career with the Fighting Sioux only lasted two season, but he won 15 games in his short tenure. His coaching numbers do not come close to telling the whole story as coach Murphy had a huge impact on Fighting Sioux football and at Cal State Fullerton, where he continued his coaching career. “I’ve worked for John Robinson and Mike Holmgren. They’re household names,” former NFL head coach and onetime assistant for Murphy Steve Mariucci once said. “I will tell you, I learned more from Gene Murphy about coaching and how to be a head coach than both of those men put together.” The Eugene “Gene” Murphy Endowment has been established by former UND players and coaches from the 1960s and 70s for football scholarships. 2010 Dan Hendrickson (Jr., LB) 2009 Joel Schwenzfeier (Jr., DB)

Todd Thomas Memorial Endowment/HOG Fund The scholarship is awarded to a defensive lineman who has demonstrated excellence in the classroom and on the field. A native of Columbus, N.D., Dewayne “Dewey” Sundby was an assistant coach at the University of North Dakota from 1959 to 1965. Prior to his time at UND, Dewey had several head coaching experiences in Minnesota high school football, and he developed the reputation of having excellent athletic teams as well as outstanding studentathletes. During his time at UND, the Fighting Sioux compiled a 3119-2 record and won the North Central Conference title in 1964. A certified flight instructor, Dewey left coaching in the spring of 1965 to begin a successful career as a commercial airline pilot with United Airlines. Those who played for Dewey at UND remember his devotion to the game and to the players. His spirit and enthusiasm towards athletics and positively influence on student-athletes will always be remembered. The Dewayne “Dewey” Sundby Athletic Endowment has been established anonymously by a former UND football player. 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002

The Todd Thomas Memorial Endowment/HOG Fund was established by the UND Foundation to honor Todd, who passed away in 2000 at the age of 40, and to keep his legacy of excellence alive. Originally set up as a memorial scholarship in 2000, the award was modified in 2003 as a way to support the priority needs of the UND offensive line (the “Hogs”). Each year’s support gift is chosen by the award winner, the UND offensive linemen and offensive line coach. In support of this endowment, former Sioux lineman Jay Hilbert (1977-82) has helped form a HOG Executive Committee with more than 20 members to help in enhancing this endowment. Todd Thomas left his mark at UND as an outstanding athlete and an excellent student. Todd was an all-conference offensive tackle and graduated with cum laude honors in chemical engineering. Todd was drafted in the fifth round of the 1981 NFL draft by the Kansas City Chiefs. After playing four years in the NFL and the USFL, Todd fell back on his engineering degree. Todd eventually became the holder of seven patents and was considered a worldwide expert in underbalanced drilling techniques, which helped revolutionize underground oil and gas recovery. 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002

David Williamson “Little Big Man” Scholarship David and Gay Williamson have remained close to their alma mater during their many relocations, travels and busy family schedules. The Little Big Man Football Scholarship Endowment was established to give back to the team that meant so much to David and to recognize a player whose determination and attitude, not size, gave him a large presence on the team. David was the “little guy with the big heart who played BIG.” This scholarship honors others with that tremendous characteristic.

2011 NORTH DAKOTA FOOTBALL

NATIONAL ALUMNI FOOTBALL COMMITTEE FORMED IN 2002 The University of North Dakota established a National Alumni Football Committee in 2002 for the purpose of building and maintaining the strong tradition of excellence in the UND football program. Specifically, the committee was organized to: • Improve communication between UND football lettermen and their teammates, and with the current Fighting Sioux football team and coaching staff • Improve involvement with our UND football lettermen in the current UND program and alumni lettermen events, activities and projects. • Improve support by our UND football lettermen for our current program through annual contributions or through endowments or planned gifts to directly support the UND football program.

Activities planned for football lettermen Since being established, the National Alumni Football Committee has initiated a number of projects, including: • Annual football lettermen’s golf scramble at The Legends golf course in Prior Lake, Minn. • E-mail blasts from the UND coaching staff and the committee leadership networking with each era of Fighting Sioux football alumni to develop involvement and support team reunions during Homecoming and Hall of Fame induction weekend (50 years, 25 years, etc.)

2011 NORTH DAKOTA FOOTBALL

1925 North Dakota Football Team

Football came to UND in 1892 under the leadership of Adolph Bechdolt, professor of English and Education, who had seen the game played at Lafayette. The team played only intra-squad games. •

158

The first “dedicated” football field was set up in 1899 with the assistance of UND benefactor William Budge. The University Athletic Association secured the plot by paying $150 in back taxes. Football players supplied their own uniforms. Half purchased green stockings, and the other half bought red ones. Each player wore one red and one green stocking in games. Harry C. (Babe) Loomis became the University’s first paid coach when he was hired at a salary of $200 for six weeks in 1899. His football team won all six of its games, outscoring opponents by a total of 179-5. The success of the 1899 team on the field was just a hint of things to come. Captain and center Lynn Frazier became the first UND alumnus to be elected governor of North Dakota. Other members included William Nuessle, who became the chief justice of the North Dakota Supreme Court; William Lemke, who became North Dakota’s attorney general and then served in Congress; and Victor Wardrope, who was to be the first alumnus appointed a University trustee. Football at the turn of the century was a brutal affair. Passing was illegal, so the ball was advanced through the efforts of human “battering rams.” To protect the runner, offensive linemen would lock arms and attempt to mow down anyone in the way.

1953 North Dakota football team

Following a mediocre football season in 1907, students complained that the official colors of pink and green failed to elicit respect from UND’s opponents. Before 1917, there had been some efforts to change the University’s colors to black and gold, but influential alumni voiced their opposition. Green and white uniforms were worn in the 1920s. These became the official athletic colors in 1947. The Flickertail Club was organized in 1924 to raise funds for the construction of new athletic facilities. Enough was raised to begin construction in 1926. At the homecoming celebration on Oct. 8, 1927, a handsome brick stadium seating 8,000 was dedicated in honor of the University’s war dead. Before the opening of Memorial Stadium, the largest crowd ever assembled for a North Dakota football game was fewer than 1,500. Elmer Hanson, announcer for KFJM, made the first radio broadcast from Memorial Stadium on Oct. 29, 1927, as UND beat the North Dakota Agricultural College 13-0. The first radio broadcasts of UND athletic events were of basketball games from the UND Armory in 1926-27, also by KFJM and Elmer Hanson. Lights were installed at Memorial Stadium in 1929, and night games were played there until Oct. 5, 1963. The lights were removed in 1966.

FOOTBALL HISTORY :: EARLY FOOTBALL BEGINNINGS

Glenn “Red” Jarrett was named in 1930 to the New York Herald-Tribune All American team at halfback, the first UND player to be so honored. The three-sport star played at UND from 1928 to 1931 and later served as coach and athletic director.

Frederick “Fritz” Pollard, who played halfback and was named to Collier’s Little All-American First Team in 1938, won a bronze medal in the high hurdles at the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin, despite a serious leg injury.

Cyrus Kahl, who lettered in 192829, was the first UND player to sign a professional football contract, with the Portsmouth (Ohio) Spartans in 1930 and 1931. Among several UND alumni who played professionally in the 1930s was Irv Kupcinet, who achieved national fame as a columnist and radio personality after playing for the Philadelphia Eagles.

This material was extracted primarily from the chapter, “Athletes,” written by the late Lee Bohnet, longtime UND sports information director, for the University’s centennial history, A Century on the Northern Plains.

2011 NORTH DAKOTA FOOTBALL

MEMORIAL STADIUM The 10,000-seat UND Memorial Stadium served as home to UND football home games from 1927 to 2000. The stadium boasts a rich and colorful history. UND posted a 247-88-9 record (.731) in 72 seasons at Memorial Stadium, but lost the first and last games it played there. In the first game at the stadium (Oct. 8, 1927), UND lost, 7-0, to Creighton, and in the last game there (Oct. 28, 2000), the Sioux lost, 35-23, to Augustana. The stadium still serves as home of the Fighting Sioux football offices and practice field along with training, weight, equipment and locker rooms. Built in 1927 as a memorial to members of the University of North Dakota community who died during World War I, the facility was one of the first examples of the Late Gothic Revival architectural design on campus. “Turrets” at the ends of the grandstands and the solid massing give it the appearance of a fortress.

In 1985, the stadium underwent renovations to install an artificial turf playing surface and an all-weather, eight-lane running track. Renovations of office space have also taken place. A new artificial turf was installed prior to the 1998 season. The stadium has served as the home for UND athletic events, the North Dakota Boys and Girls State Track Meet and the North Dakota Special Olympics Summer Games. In the summer of 1990 and 1996, Memorial Stadium also played host to the Prairie Rose State Games.

2011 NORTH DAKOTA FOOTBALL SITTING BULL TROPHY

From 1953 to 1999, UND and the University of South Dakota competed for the Sitting Bull trophy, a ccarved oaken bust of the famous Sioux Indian leader, awarded after a mild dispute between the states ffollowing removal of some of the late leader’s remains from a grave near Fort Yates, N.D. TThe trophy was first awarded by Sodak Sports, a defunct sports weekly. UND won the trophy 28 times, ccompared to just 15 for USD.

NICKEL TROPHY The Nickel Trophy, 250 times larger than a regular five-cent piece and weighing 75 pounds, was inaugurated in 1938 and was presented each fall to the winner of the North Dakota-North Dakota State football contest during the series that ran through the 2003 season. Two inches thick and 22 inches in diameter, it is an exact replica of the once-minted U.S. coin. It has been the object of many intercampus raids, recoveries and more thefts. The late Robert Kunkel, a UND alumnus and Chicago advertising executive, was the originator of the trophy. Blue Key, an honorary service fraternity on each campus, awarded the Nickel Trophy to the winning team. UND leads in the battle for the aluminum alloy “slug” 35-30. In one stretch, the Fighting Sioux won it 12 straight times. In the all-time series against North Dakota State, UND leads 62-45-3. The Sioux retained the trophy in 2003, winning 28-21 in overtime at the Alerus Center, the most recent meeting between the two teams.

In 2001, North Dakota defeated North Dakota State 19-7 to take back the Nickel Trophy.

2011 NORTH DAKOTA FOOTBALL POTATO BOWL USA The Potato Bowl USA is a week-long festival teaming the University of North Dakota and the Red River Valley potato growing industry. It features a Hugo’s Potato Bowl Pete Hidden Medallion Contest, a Hugo’s 8K run, golf tournament, the world’s largest french fry feed, pep rally, service club breakfast, parade, and tailgating party football game featuring the University of North Dakota. The week’s activities are arranged by the Potato Bowl Committee, a group of Greater Grand Forks volunteers. The Potato Bowl USA was created in 1965 by then UND Athletic Director Leonard R. “Len” Marti, head football Coach Marv “Whitey” Helling, assistant football coach Jerry Olson and sports information director Lee Bohnet. The first Potato Bowl USA was played in 1966, when the Fighting Sioux shut out Idaho State 41-0 in a battle for pride among potato growing regions. The 2011 Potato Bowl USA Ambassadors are Jason Grotte (Thompson, N.D.) and Anna Rutherford (Hatton, ND.)

North Dakota is 34-11 in Potato Bowl USA history.

MINERAL WATER BOWL

PECAN BOWL

EXCELSIOR SPRINGS, Mo. – UND forced eight Northern Illinois turnovers while committing none enroute to beating the Huskies, 37-20, in the 17th annual Mineral Water Bowl.

ABILENE, Texas – Football-loving Texans applauded. The Fighting Sioux and all of the North Central Conference commended the University of North Dakota for its 42-24 Pecan Bowl triumph over Parsons College of Fairfield, Iowa, in the third annual Pecan Bowl.

The Huskies gave away three fumbles and had five passes intercepted in finishing its season with a 9-1 record. UND also wound up the year with a 9-1 mark.

The free-wheeling Sioux, showing their usual splendid passing game that had smashed seven foes and led to a conference title tie, simply had too many horses for the heavier Parsons outfit in this game that brought UND its first NCAA College Division Midwest football title.

UND scored on its first possession on a 1-yard run by junior quarterback Corey Colehour and were never seriously threatened by the sixthranked Huskies.

There were many Sioux heroes in this wild, fan-pleasing game that produced 19 NCAA bowl records, 17 of the marks by UND coach Marv “Whitey” Helling’s team as it unleashed a furious offense in windy, 30-degree weather at P.E. Shotwell Stadium in this West Texas city of 120,000.

Sioux cornerback Stan Wright got things started when he returned the opening kickoff 65 yards to the Northern Illinois 30-yard line. Four plays later Colehour punched it in and Errol Mann’s extra point made it 7-0 just 3:06 into the game. BOX SCORE

Northern Illinois successfully executed a 90-yard halfback option pass on its second play from scrimmage that went for a touchdown by Gerry Sandberg. The Huskies’ extra point attempt was wide, however, and UND led 7-6. The teams traded two more touchdowns in the first half, and UND led 21-20 at halftime. Northern Illinois would get no closer, though, as UND recorded a safety in the third quarter and two fourth quarter touchdowns. The Sioux ran 92 offensive plays to just 41 for Northern Illinois. Of the Huskies’ 323 total yards, three were on plays of 90, 63 and 42 yards. Starting Huskies’ quarterback Ron Christian sustained a knee injury in the second quarter and missed much of the game until returning in the fourth quarter. Sioux junior halfback Ron Bergh was named the game’s outstanding back after he rushed for two touchdowns and 74 yards on 17 carries. UND sophomore Jerry Quaderer led all ballcarriers with 83 yards in 19 attempts. NOTES: Sioux end Dave Lince was honored as the top lineman. Northern Illinois linebacker Terry Henigan was given the top tackler award ... Sioux cornerback Stan Wright had two interceptions and Colehour passed for 201 yards ... It was Northern Illinois’ third trip to the Mineral Water Bowl, while the Sioux were making their first appearance in the game ... It was UND’s first postseason action since 1930, when the Sioux defeated the Los Angeles Firemen, a major college all-star team, by a score of 14-9 on Christmas day on the west coast.

UND scored first. After a nine-play drive, Sioux quarterback Corey Colehour drove to the enemy 18, where a field goal attempt by Errol Mann went awry. Mann’s short kick was caught by Parsons, but UND forced a fumble and Mann recovered. On the next play, Colehour threw a 13-yard pass to John Conrad with 6:36 left in the first quarter and Mann kicked the extra point for a 7-0 UND lead. The Sioux made it 14-0 after a fake field goal attempt from the Parsons 14-yard line. UND back Pete Porinsh took the snap from center and gained 10 yards to the 4, and on the next play Porinsh ran it in. The Sioux extended their lead on a 43-yard touchdown pass from Colehour to Jim Hester to finish off a six-play 80-yard drive. Parsons had cut the lead to 21-10 in the third quarter, but UND capped off a 72-yard drive with a 3-yard touchdown run by Porinsh with 15 seconds remaining in the third quarter. The Sioux made it 35-10 with 6:46 left in the game on Colehour’s second 43-yard TD pass of the afternoon, this time to Porinsh.

CAMILLIA BOWL

NCAA DII REGIONAL PLAYOFFS

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – More than 17,000 fans were on hand to see North Dakota defeat Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo, 38-21, in the 12th annual Camellia Bowl in a game that decided the NCAA West College Football championship.

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – Unranked Livingston (Ala.) scored three second-half touchdowns to break a 14-14 halftime tie and upset No. 1-ranked North Dakota in a first round NCAA playoff game at Memorial Stadium.

The win was the 10th of the season for the Sioux, setting a school record. UND finished the year with a 10-1 mark, while Cal Poly finished 8-1-1.

Livingston raised its record to 10-2 and advanced to the NCAA Division II semifinals in Wichita Falls, Texas, where it lost to Northern Michigan in the Pioneer Bowl. Northern Michigan went on to the Camellia Bowl in Sacramento, Calif., where it won the national championship.

UND shut down a Cal Poly running game that was averaging 227 yards per game, limiting the Mustangs to just 63 rushing yards on 33 attempts.

The loss to Livingston was the first of the season for UND, which finished 9-1.

Meanwhile the Sioux ran for 266 yards on 70 attempts, led by senior Mike Deutsch’s 119 yards on 41 carries. North Dakota took a 3-0 lead 4:30 into the game on a 36-yard field goal by Jim Gronowski and made it 10-0 when Jay Gustafson connected with tight end Lawrie Skolrood on a 13-yard touchdown pass with 2:40 left in the first quarter. UND was leading 17-0 in the second quarter when Cal Poly defensive tackle Dave Quirk intercepted a pass and returned it 60 yards for a touchdown. That made it 17-7 at halftime. UND upped its lead to 24-7 with 2:18 to play in the third quarter on a 2-yard run by Deutsch. The touchdown capped a 17-play, 81-yard drive that took over seven minutes. The Sioux eventually opened up a 31-7 lead before Cal Poly managed two touchdowns in the game’s final four minutes. UND was just trying to run out the clock, but freshman running back Dale Kasowski scored on a 49-yard run up the middle with just three seconds to play. NOTES: The crowd of 17,194 was the highest of all four 1972 NCAA regional bowls ... Deutsch was named the game’s most valuable offensive player and Cal Poly linebacker Gregg Lee received the game’s most valuable defensive player honors – the team’s respective schools received $1,000 scholarships in the names of the two players ... The game was televised by ABC to a regional audience, with Lee Grosscup and Lynn Sanners handling the announcing chores ... The contest was seen on KTHI-TV, Ch. 11, in Grand Forks ... Game time temperature was 34 degrees.

After Livingston took a 14-0 first quarter lead, the Sioux came back with a strong second quarter, scoring touchdowns on a seven-yard run by quarterback Brian Grover and an eightyard run by running back Dale Kasowski.

BOX SCORE

Score Livingston UND

The game was fairly even, statistically, but Livingston made big plays, while North Dakota was victimized by mistakes and an inability to make plays at key times.

SCORING SUMMARY ATTENDANCE: 5,212 LU Johnson 3 run (Mullinax kick) LU Rawlinson 1 run (Mullinax kick) UND Grover 7 run (Przbylski kick) UND Kasowski 8 run (Przbylski kick) LU Seale 8 run (Mullinax kick) LU Slater 63 run (Mullinax kick) LU Edwards 49 run (kick blocked)

The Sioux drove to Livingston’s 10-yard line on their opening possession, but were stopped on a fourth-and-one from there. With the score tied 14-14 in the third quarter, a pass reception by UND’s Tom Petrik moved the ball to the Livingston four-yard line, but a clipping penalty negated the gain, and UND failed to score. Livingston, which used a wishbone formation and no-huddle offense with alternating quarterbacks throughout, scored what was the eventual game-winning touchdown on an eight-yard run by quarterback Ricky Seale with 1:33 left in the third quarter. The Tigers made it 28-14 on a 63-yard touchdown run by quarterback Willie Slater with 11:48 left in the game.

Passing: UND J. Gustafson 11-26-3 for 136 and 2 TD. CP Pettas 7-16-1 for 111 and 1 TD, Robbins 0-10 for 0 and 0 TD.

NOTES: UND came into the game ranked first nationally in three polls – the UPI, AP and NCAA polls, while Livingston was unranked ... The temperature was 28 degrees at game time but was not considered a factor in the outcome, according to UND coach Jerry Olson ... There was a 10-to 15-mile per hour wind out of the northwest that grew stronger as the game went on ... The game was not televised ... Livingston linebacker Paul Davis made eight solo tackles, assisted on five others and forced two fumbles.

FIRST ROUND, NCAA DII PLAYOFFS

JACKSON, Miss. – UND took a 7-6 lead into the locker room at halftime, but Mississippi College scored 15 points in the first nine minutes of the third quarter and went on to win, 35-15, in the opening round of the NCAA Division II playoffs.

PITTSBURG, Kan. – Pitt State running back Ronald Moore ran for 100 yards on 29 carries and scored three touchdowns – two in the second half – to lead the No. 1-ranked Gorillas to a 26-21 comeback win over 13th-ranked North Dakota in the first round of the NCAA Division II playoffs.

It was the second time in five years that a UND playoff appearance was spoiled by a Gulf South Conference team, with both losses coming by 20 points. In 1975, Livingston (Ala.) beat the Sioux 34-14 after the game was tied 14-14 at the half.

It was the third consecutive playoff defeat for North Dakota, which finished the 1992 season with a 6-4-1 overall record.

Mississippi College raised its record to 10-2 and advanced to the NCAA Division II semifinals, where it lost to eventual national champion Delaware.

It was the 23rd consecutive win for Pitt State, the defending national champion. The Gorillas raised their record to 12-0 with the win and went on to win two more playoff games before losing, 1713, to Jacksonville State in the NCAA Division II championship game in Florence, Ala.

UND finished its season with a 10-2 record. The Choctaws led 6-0 in the second quarter, but UND went 68 yards in 12 plays, scoring on a oneyard touchdown run by Gary Pietruszewski with 6:21 to play before the half. The Sioux received the second-half kickoff, but on UND’s fourth play of the third quarter, Mississippi College recovered a Sioux fumble on the UND 36-yard line, and the Choctaws scored seven plays later on a one-yard run by Wayne Pharis to take the lead with 10:34 to play in the third. A two-point conversion made the score 14-7. On North Dakota’s next play from scrimmage, Mississippi College linebacker Ralph Ashley intercepted a pass at the Sioux 38, and the Choctaws scored on a 20-yard run by Bruce Hulitt with 6:43 left in the third. Mississippi College extended its lead to 28-7 just 30 seconds into the fourth quarter on a five-yard run by Daryl Posey. Pietruszewski scored his second touchdown of the game with 2:48 to play and UND’s Tom Shorma ran in the two-point conversion attempt to make the score 28-15, but an on-side kick attempt by the Sioux failed. Mississippi College’s Major Everett then scored on a 41-yard run up the middle with 1:09 to play for the final score of the game. NOTES: UND left end Joe Friederichs led all players with 17 total tackles, with four of those for lost yardage ... The game was the first-ever postseason game for Mississippi College ... UND held Choctaws tailback Calvin Howard to just 56 yards rushing; Howard came into the game as the No. 2 rusher in Division II with 1,401 yards ... The field was soaked by four inches of rain on the two days prior to the game ... Game time was 7:30 p.m. to accommodate an afternoon game between Mississippi and Mississippi State on the same field.

Moore gave the Gorillas a 6-0 lead and the extra point by Jeff Wood made it 7-0 with 9:46 to play in the first quarter after an eight-play, 48-yard drive.

UND took the lead on Burnell’s second touchdown of the day, a two-yard run with 6:32 to play in the second quarter. Sioux quarterback threw to tight end John Schumacher for the two-point conversion, making the score 14-13 in favor of UND. That was the score at halftime, but Pitt State scored on its first drive of the third quarter after UND turned the ball over by fumbling the second half’s opening kickoff.

FIRST ROUND, NCAA DII PLAYOFFS

QUARTERFINALS, NCAA DII PLAYOFFS

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – UND’s Darcy Dahlem kicked a 31-yard field goal with 6:36 to play to lift the Fighting Sioux to a 17-14 win over Pittsburg State in the first round of the NCAA Division II playoffs.

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – UND quarterback Clay Wagner threw for 294 yards and a school playoffrecord five touchdown passes (broken in 2001) to lead the Fighting Sioux to a 54-21 quarterfinal playoff win over Mankato State at Memorial Stadium.

The win sent UND (9-2) into the second round of the playoffs against North Central Conference co-champion Mankato State (10-2), which defeated Missouri Southern, 34-13, in the first round. Pittsburg State ended its season with an 8-3 overall record.

It was a cold day in Grand Forks, with the gametime temperature just 15 degrees, but both teams’ offenses were hot. The Sioux racked up 481 total offensive yards, while the Mavericks tallied 373 yards of their own in total offense.

The game was a rematch of the 1992 NCAA Division II playoff game that saw Pittsburg State defeat UND, 26-21, in Pittsburg, Kan.

Another factor in the game was turnovers, with Mankato State committing seven to just one by UND.

Dahlem’s kick was the 11th play in a 57-yard drive. On the winning drive, UND running back Shannon Burnell ran three times for 21 yards, but the biggest play was a 12-yard sideline pass from Sioux quarterback K.J. Coghlan to Aaron Schramm on which UND was given an additional five yards because of a Pitt State facemask penalty. That gave UND a first down on the Gorillas’ 23-yard line. After the drive stalled at the PSU 13-yard line, Dahlem made his gamewinning kick.

The win advanced North Dakota (10-2) to the NCAA semifinals against Indiana (Pa.) (12-0).

Pitt State took the ensuing kickoff and moved to the UND 28-yard line, but on second-andnine, Sioux safety Monte Schmaltz stopped a Gorillas’ option play for a four-yard loss, and on third-and-13, UND cornerback Dallas Rysavy stopped an attempted reverse for a 14-yard loss. On fourth down and 27, the Sioux stopped Pitt State quarterback Brian Hutchins to take over on downs with 1:17 to play. Five plays later UND ran out the clock to end the game. UND tied the score 14-14 with 1:52 to play in the third quarter on a 27-yard touchdown pass from Clay Wagner to Aaron Schramm. Pittsburg State held a 7-0 halftime lead after scoring on a 10-yard pass from Brian Hutchins to Paul Sparkman with 11 seconds to play in the first quarter. The Sioux tied it, 7-7, with 11:05 to play in the third quarter when Wagner connected with Tom Hagert on a 41-yard TD pass. The Gorillas took a 14-7 lead with 4:29 to play in the third quarter on a two-yard run by Hutchins. The game took just 2:27 to play, as both teams relied heavily on their rushing prowess to keep the clock moving. UND rushed 46 times for 230 yards, while Pitt State ran 51 times for 259 yards. The Sioux attempted just 23 passes on the afternoon, and the Gorillas threw just six times. Burnell had 191 rushing yards on 32 carries for UND, while Pitt State’s Joey Tobin had 125 rushing yards on 21 carries. NOTES: UND snapped a three-game postseason losing streak ... The game was played on a sunny day with a game-time temperature of 41 degrees and a south wind gusting between 10 and 20 miles per hour ... The last time UND played host to a playoff game was in 1975 against Livingston.

The Sioux jumped out to a 21-0 lead on Mankato State and led 41-7 after three quarters to all but clinch the victory. Both teams scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter. UND started fast, scoring on its opening drive on a 29-yard screen pass from Wagner to running back Shannon Burnell. The Mavericks, meanwhile, threw interceptions on their first two possessions, but the Sioux did not capitalize on those turnovers. With UND leading 14-0 in the second quarter, the Mavericks fumbled the ball away on their own 33-yard line, and this time UND took advantage of the miscue, with Wagner throwing a 29-yard pass to Tom Hagert for a touchdown. It was one of three touchdown catches on the day for Hagert, who on the afternoon totaled 156 yards on eight receptions. After Mankato State scored on an impressive 15-play drive to make it 21-7, UND took just two plays to make it 28-7 when Wagner found Hagert in the end zone for a 40-yard touchdown pass. A 29-yard field goal by Sioux kicker Darcy Dahlem made it 31-7 with 14:05 to play in the third quarter, and then Wagner and Hagert combined for their third touchdown, this time a 41-yarder with 7:32 to play. Dahlem’s second field goal of the day, a 32-yarder, made it 41-7 after three. Among the game’s defensive standouts were Sioux cornerbacks Brent Johnson and Dallas Rysavy. Johnson had two interceptions and eight total tackles, and Rysavy had nine total tackles and one pass breakup. Burnell had 126 rushing yards on 24 carries. It was Burnell’s third consecutive 100-yard rushing game in the playoffs. Mavericks’ quarterback Jamie Pass, a Harlon Hill Award finalist, threw for 215 yards and was also Mankato State’s leading rusher, with 90 yards on 14 carries. NOTES: UND held the ball for 34:32 to 25:28 for Mankato State.

FIRST ROUND, NCAA DII PLAYOFFS

INDIANA, Pa. – UND’s 1993 playoff run came to an end on a muddy field in Indiana, Pa., as fourth-ranked IUP opened up a 21-0 lead and did not allow the Sioux to get on the scoreboard until there were just 24 seconds remaining in the game.

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – UND quarterback Clay Wagner threw three touchdown passes and Sioux running back Ross Almlie ran for 174 yards to lead North Dakota to an 18-6 win over Northeast Missouri in the first round of the 1994 NCAA Division II playoffs at Memorial Stadium.

Like the Sioux did a week earlier against Mankato State, IUP dominated the time of possession, holding the ball for 36:46 to UND’s 23:14. The Indians ran 72 offensive plays to just 52 for the Sioux.

The win was the seventh in a row for the Sioux and their 13th home win in their past 14 home games. UND (9-2) advanced to play North Dakota State in the Division II quarterfinals, while Northeast Missouri finished its season with an 8-3 mark.

IUP raised its record to 13-0 and advanced to the national championship game the following week in Florence, Ala., where the Indians lost to North Alabama. UND ended its season with a 10-3 record. IUP got all the points it needed on the opening drive of the game, when running back Michael Mann, a Harlon Hill Award finalist, scored on a four-yard run to cap a 12-play drive. Mann carried seven times for 28 yards on the drive. Indians’ kicker Michael Geary kicked the extra point to make it 7-0 with 9:27 to play in the quarter. UND came right back with an impressive possession of its own, but its 17-play drive ended with no points when Sioux kicker Darcy Dahlem missed a 22-yard field goal. The drive took 8:03. UND then forced IUP to punt, but the Sioux fumbled on the return, and the Indians capitalized on the turnover by scoring on a 10-yard pass from quarterback Scott Woods to Derrick Smith, making it 14-0 with 12:20 to play in the half. The Sioux managed just one first down and 25 yards in their next two possessions, and IUP upped its lead to 21-0 on an eight-yard pass from Woods to Scott McLellan with 54 seconds left in the half. The only scoring in the second half came on UND’s final drive of the game. Trailing 21-0 with 3:15 to play, North Dakota moved 83 yards in nine plays, with Sioux quarterback Clay Wagner completing a 24-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Josh Ostby with 27 seconds left. Dahlem’s extra point attempt was blocked. UND attempted an onside kick, but IUP recovered and kneeled down on the game’s final play to run out the clock. Mann was held to just 58 yards on 17 carries, but IUP’s Willie Dodson ran for a game-high 83 yards on 19 carries. Woods completed 19 of 27 passes for 171 yards. For UND, Shannon Burnell’s streak of rushing for 100 yards in three consecutive playoff games came to an end, as Burnell was limited to 48 yards on 10 carries.

The Sioux opened the scoring when Wagner threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to receiver Josh Ostby with 12:11 to play in the first quarter. It was the seventh consecutive game in which Ostby caught a touchdown pass. UND kicker Juan Gomez-Tagle’s extra-point attempt was blocked.

Still leading 6-0, the Sioux got on the board again early in the second quarter. UND cornerback Brent Johnson intercepted a pass by Bulldogs’ quarterback Mike Vaughn at Northeast Missouri’s 38-yard line and returned it 11 yards to the 27-yard line. UND scored on its third play after the turnover when Wagner threw a 24-yard scoring pass to sophomore running back Tom Langer. It was Langer’s first career touchdown. A two-point conversion pass attempt failed, and UND led 12-0 with 12:58 to play in the half. The Bulldogs narrowed the score to 12-6 on a three-yard run by tailback Jarrett Anderson on Northeast Missouri’s first drive of the second half. Kicker Scott Rudel’s extra point attempt was no good. UND regained its 12-point lead on its next drive. A short kickoff was brought back by Sioux return man James Cheatham to UND’s 41, and UND moved downfield in just six plays. Langer ran up the middle for 20 yards to the Northeast Missouri 36, and then Wagner connected with junior wide receiver Jeff McElroy on a 16-yard touchdown pass with 10:39 to play in the third. Once again, a two-point conversion pass attempt failed, and the 18-6 score held up for the remainder of the game.

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – UND opened up a 10-0 lead after the first quarter, but North Dakota State scored 41 unanwered points and went on to defeat the Sioux 41-10 in the first round of the playoffs.

GREELEY, Colo. – North Dakota’s fifth NCAA playoff appearance of the decade started with a first-half shootout and ended in a defensive struggle. In the end, UND did not have enough weapons as Northern Colorado came away with the firstround victory in a game that saw each team rack up more than 500 yards of total offense (UND 507, UNC 520).

UND finished its season with a 9-2 record, while NDSU raised its mark to 10-2 and went on to lose to Pitt State in the playoff quarterfinals. For the Bison, the win avenged a 21-7 loss to the Sioux two weeks earlier at Memorial Stadium.

North Dakota’s season came to an end with the Sioux posting an 8-3 overall record. Northern Colorado, bidding for its third consecutive national title, upped its record to 11-1, but were defeated the next week in the quarterfinals by eventual national champion Northwest Missouri State.

NDSU’s offense rolled up 297 rushing yards on 55 carries and added 116 yards through the air for 413 total yards, more than double UND’s 200 net offensive yards. A pair of freshmen – quarterback Kevin Feeney and running back Reggie Scott – did most of the damage for the Bison. Feeney had 27 carries for 135 yards and completed 10 of 11 passes for 116 yards. Scott had 155 rushing yards on 27 carries and also caught four passes for 21 yards. UND scored first after a 14-play, 62-yard drive with a 20-yard field goal by Juan Gomez-Tagle with 5:52 to play in the first quarter. UND freshman running back Phillip Moore carried nine times for 54 yards on the drive. The Sioux then forced the Bison to punt after just three plays, and on first-and-10 from the UND 38, Sioux quarterback Kevin Klancher hit wide receiver Josh Ostby on a 53-yard pass and an NDSU personal foul put the ball on the fouryard line. Moore scored on the next play on a four-yard run up the middle, and Gomez-Tagle kicked the extra point to make it 10-0 with 3:17 remaining in the first quarter. UND managed just 84 yards after that, however, while NDSU got four touchdown runs from Feeney and two from Scott. The leading tackler in the game for North Dakota was left end David Hillesheim, who had 11 tackles (all solo). Sioux linebackers Tim Tibesar and Jason Mitchell each had nine tackles. NOTES: This was UND’s fourth straight season to appear in the NCAA playoffs. The game was played under sunny skies and a 35-degree temperature with a SE win blowing from 10-20 miles per hour.

Most of the scoring took place in the first quarter, with Northern Colorado leading 28-14 after one. The Bears got two touchdowns in the game’s first 5:25, but UND cut the score to 14-7 when Sioux quarterback Sean Greenwaldt hit wide receiver Mike Juhasz on a 40-yard touchdown pass with 7:44 to play in the first quarter. Northern Colorado scored on its third consecutive drive, though, when quarterback Corte McGuffey ran it in from 14 yards with 5:31 to play in the first. UND was forced to punt on its next possession and Bears return man Keith Grable returned the punt 60 yards to the Sioux seven-yard line. McGuffey hit Dillan Micus for a touchdown pass on the next play and the extra point made it 28-7 with 2:47 left in the first quarter. The Sioux then came back with an impressive drive that ended with a 31-yard touchdown pass from Greenwaldt to Phillip Moore. The extra point made the score 28-14, and that’s how the quarter ended. UNC continued its offensive onslaught in the second quarter, outscoring the Sioux 14-10 to take a 42-24 halftime lead. In all, Northern Colorado scored touchdowns on its first five possessions and on six out of seven possessions in the first half. The Bears added a field goal and touchdown in the second half to conclude the scoring. Greenwaldt threw for 229 yards and three touchdowns, two to Juhasz, who caught four passes for 119 yards.

FIRST ROUND, NCAA DII PLAYOFFS

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – UND quarterback Kelby Klosterman tied an NCAA Division II playoff record by throwing six touchdown passes–four to Sioux wide receiver Jesse Smith–to lead North Dakota to a 42-28 win over Winona State in the first round of the NCAA Division II Football Championship playoffs.

Northwest Missouri State mounted a comeback, however, scoring 13 points in the second half and sending the game to overtime tied at 13.

The Sioux (11-1) advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals and will play host to Pittsburg (Kan.) State (11-1). Winona State finished its season with a 10-2 record.

UND’s season ended when David Jansen scored on a 1-yard plunge and the Sioux were unable to answer. North Dakota’s season ended with a 9-2 overall record, while Northwest Missouri raised its record to 11-1 and went on to win the national title.

The Bearcats narrowed the margin to 13-7 on a big special teams play of their own when Tony Miles scored on a 64-yard punt return with 12:34 to play in the third quarter. UND was still leading 13-7 late in the third quarter, but Northwest Missouri put together a nine-play, 51-yard drive that ended with a 46yard field goal by David Purnell. That made it 1310 with 2:14 to play in the third quarter. The Bearcats tied it with 10:19 to play in the game on another field goal by Purnell, this time from 36 yards out. Neither team managed any solid scoring chances the remainder of regulation time, and that sent the game to overtime, marking the first time UND was involved in a playoff game that went to overtime. The Bearcats got the ball first, starting at the UND 25-yard line per NCAA rules. Faced with a third down and 11 to go, the Bearcats called a timeout. After conferring on the sidelines, quarterback Travis Miles hit Tony Miles on a 10yard pass and on fourth and one, Tucker Woolsey ran for two yards and a first down on the UND 14-yard line. Jansen then rushed for 11 yards to the threeyard line and on third and goal from the one, Jansen ran it in, and Purnell’s extra point made it 20-13. UND got the ball next, but on a fourth and eight play from the Northwest Missouri State 23-yard line, Sioux quarterback Tony Stein’s pass to Mike Juhasz was incomplete, ending UND’s season. NOTES: UND sophomore Jed Perkerewicz ran for 141 yards on 30 carries, and Jansen ran for 115 yards on 24 carries for Northwest Missouri State.

Smith, who caught six passes for 133 yards, tied an NCAA Division II single-game playoff record with his four touchdown receptions. That mark has been achieved three times previously. It was first reached by Lehigh’s Steve Kreider in 1977, and later accomplished by West Chester’s Scott Asman in a three-overtime game in 1989 and West Chester’s Brian Penacale in 1994. UND took the opening kickoff and drove for a touchdown with a 12-play, 77-yard drive. The drive was capped by a 10-yard Klosterman touchdown pass to tight end John Kyvig. Klosterman then threw a 2-yard TD pass to Kyvig that made it 14-0 with 3:22 to play in the quarter. Winona State scored its first touchdown on a one-yard run by quarterback Bruce Carpenter, but a 19-yard touchdown pass from Klosterman to Smith upped UND’s lead to 21-7 with 3:26 to play in the half. Winona State responded with a nine-play, 74yard drive capped by a five-yard touchdown pass from Carpenter to Adam Lilla with 21 seconds to play in the half, making it 21-14 at halftime. UND extended its lead to 28-14 with 5:35 to play in the third when Klosterman threw a 16-yard touchdown to Smith, but the Warriors narrowed the score to 28-21 when Carpenter hit Lilla on a 64-yard touchdown pass with 4:17 left in the third. Less than two minutes later, Klosterman threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Smith with 2:49 to play in the quarter, making it 35-21, and the duo connected one more time to conclude UND’s scoring. Winona State closed the scoring on a 2-yard touchdown pass from Carpenter to Lilla with 26 seconds to play. NOTES: UND gained a season-high 508 yards of total offense in the game ... Winona State linebacker Jake Tietje led all players with 13 tackles (12 solo). UND’s Eric Schmidt had seven solo tackles and five pass breakups ... UND’s 42 points was the highest total ever recorded by the Sioux in 16 playoff games ... Perkerewicz’s 100yard game was the 12th of his career (second in the playoffs) ... Klosterman’s 27 completions was a career high ... Klosterman’s six touchdown passes is a UND playoff record and matched the Sioux regular season single-game mark that was set by Corey Colehour in 1966 ... Kyvig’s twotouchdown game was the first of his career.

QUARTERFINALS, NCAA DII PLAYOFFS

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – UND quarterback Kelby Klosterman threw two touchdown passes to Dan Graf, and Sioux running back Jed Perkerewicz rushed for 101 yards on 20 carries to lead North Dakota to a 14-2 win over UC Davis in the NCAA semifinals.

It will be the third NCAA semifinal appearance for North Dakota (12-1), which also made it to the semifinals in 1993 and 1994.

Perkerewicz’s 100-yard game was his second of this year’s playoffs, and third 100-yard rushing game in four career playoff games.

Pittsburg State finished its season 11-2 overall after being shut out for the first time in 217 games dating back to Nov. 6, 1982, when the Gorillas lost, 13-0, at Nebraska-Kearney. It was Pitt State’s worst loss since Sept. 14, 1984, when the Gorillas lost, 62-14, at Missouri-Rolla.

UND got its first score with 21 seconds to play in the first quarter when Kelby Klosterman connected with wide receiver Dan Graf on a 16yard fade pass in the end zone to cap off a sevenplay, 85-yard drive. The Sioux extended their lead to 13-0 with 6:44 to play in the half on a 47-yard touchdown pass from Klosterman to wide receiver Jesse Smith on a deep post route. UND’s next touchdown came on one of the most memorable plays of the season. Facing a 1stand-15 from the UND 38-yard line, Klosterman found tight end Chad Mustard open on a sideline pass designed to gain about 15 yards. Mustard, however, broke several tackles while managing to stay in bounds, and he took it all the way to the end zone for a 62-yard touchdown play with 1:56 to play in the half. Moments later, UND had a 4th-and-5 at Pitt State’s 42-yard line. North Dakota Head Coach Dale Lennon sent kicker Cameron Peterka in for a field goal attempt, and with 28 seconds to play in the half Peterka made a 59-yard field goal that is an NCAA playoff record for any division (I-AA, II or III). It was Peterka’s 11th career field goal of 50 or more yards and seventh in 2001. The previous long field goal in an NCAA Division II playoff game was 50 yards by Troy State’s Ted Clem against North Dakota State on Dec. 8, 1984. The previous long field goal in any playoff game was 56 yards by Nevada’s Tony Zendejas against Idaho State on Nov. 26, 1983. The field goal tied Peterka’s career long, as he also kicked a 59-yarder at St. Cloud State on Nov. 4, 2000. In the third quarter, UND extended its lead to 26-0 on a 25-yard field goal by Peterka with 8:55 to play. Later in the third quarter, a snap on a punt attempt went over Lutz’s head into the end zone, and Lutz recovered but ran out of the end zone for a safety that made it 28-0 with 58 seconds remaining in the third quarter. Peterka kicked a 33-yard field goal with 14:49 to play in the fourth quarter and UND running back Aaron Schwenzfeier closed out the scoring with a four-yard run with 8:13 to play. Defensively, UND was led by inside linebacker Travis O’Neel,who had a game-high 10 tackles (seven solo), including four for losses of 17 yards.

The keys for UND in beating UC Davis were a ball-control offense, a defense that came up with big plays at crucial times and a vocal hometown crowd of 11,696. UC Davis was penalized 12 times for 84 yards, including seven illegal procedure penalties. The only score of the first half came when Klosterman found Graf open on a 25-yard touchdown pass with 3:39 to play in the second quarter. The Klosterman-Graf duo connected again on a 12-yard scoring pass with 10:26 to play in the third quarter to make it 14-0, UND. UC Davis got its only points on a safety with 30 seconds to play in the game. The Sioux were facing 4th-and-12 from their own 3-yard line, and UND head coach Dale Lennon decided to have Klosterman down the ball in the end zone, conceding two points to the Aggies. After the free kick, UC Davis drove to the Sioux 30-yard line, but UND defensive end Eric Halverson sacked UC Davis quarterback J.T. O’Sullivan to end the game. Although the Aggies had more total offense (376 yards) than the Sioux (308 yards)—UC Davis was the first team to outgain UND in total offense in a game this season—North Dakota controlled the clock for 31:59, while UC Davis was on offense for 28:01. UC Davis showed why it had the nation’s fourthranked offense in the regular season. The Aggies gained 376 total yards (327 passing, 49 rushing) against the Sioux defense, which finished the regular season ranked third nationally in total defense. It was the most yardage gained all season against UND, surpassing the previous opponent high of 339 by Winona State on Nov. 17 in the first round of the playoffs.

NCAA DIVISION II CHAMPIONSHIP highlighted by a 27-yard pass from Klosterman to Graf on UND’s second play from scrimmage.

State in the NCAA Division II title game, giving UND its first-ever national championship in 105 years of football.

Perkerewicz scored on the next play to give UND the lead.

2011 NORTH DAKOTA FOOTBALL

“THE DRIVE”

by Chuck Johnson

Prospects hardly could have been dimmer for the University of North Dakota football team. The lights at Braly Municipal Stadium had been on since before noon, the rain varied between a mist and a drizzle, and the Sioux were on their own 20-yard line with 2 minutes 42 seconds to go. Grand Valley State University of Michigan had just scored a touchdown to take a 1410 lead. The national championship of Division II football in the National Collegiate Athletic Association seemed beyond UND’s grasp. The Sioux offense was not noted for the quick strike. Rather, it was grind it out and hang your hat on the defense. As the sand in the hourglass trickled through, ever filling the lower portion, UND tried to put together a drive. It was not easy, and it was not pretty. From the 20 after a touchback on the kickoff, UND quarterback Kelby Klosterman threw two passes that fell incomplete, one intended for wide receiver Dan Graf, the other for wide receiver Jesse Smith. On third and 10, Klosterman could not find a receiver, so he ran for eight yards. Timeout: 2 minutes 10 seconds left. Fourth and two. Chris Mussman, the UND offensive coordinator, up in the press box, called Klosterman’s number again. Seven yards around left end. First down on the 35. Clock stopped momentarily (first down). Next, Klosterman passed to tailback Jed Perkerewicz for six yards, then threw incomplete to wide receiver Luke Schleusner, stopping the clock. Again, Klosterman found his receivers covered, and he ran for no gain. Timeout: 1 minute to go. Sioux still in Dakota Territory, on own 41, fourth and four. In the press box, Mike Mannausau, graduate assistant working with the defensive line, implored Mussman to call the “stick route” pass play, part of the West Coast Offense. With earphones on, Mussman did not hear the advice, but called “stick route” anyway. “We hadn’t used the play for two weeks,” Mussman recalled later. “We hadn’t even run it in practice.” With Grand Valley sending everyone but the kitchen sink on a blitz to pressure the quarterback, Klosterman received excellent protection from his five down linemen and Perkerewicz and had time to pass to Schleusner over the middle. The play was designed to gain five yards, enough for the first down, but Schleusner broke free from a tackle and headed outside, toward the right sideline. Smith, with a broken nose suffered earlier in the game, crossed toward the middle and leveled a Grand Valley defender with a textbook open-field block. “All I could see was grass,” Schleusner recalled. “I’m not the fastest guy in the world, but I ran as fast as I could. When I got near the 10, it felt like I was carrying a plow, and someone caught me a yard short of the goal.” With the first down, the clock stopped with 36 seconds remaining.

UND wide receiver Luke Schleusner (center with trophy) scored on a 58-yard pass reception with less than one minute to play in the national title game.

Cameron Peterka kicked the extra point, and UND led, 17-14, with 29 seconds to go. The suspense was not over. Brent Lesniak of Grand Valley returned Peterka’s kickoff into UND territory. Peterka met him with a crushing tackle, but it did not matter, because Grand Valley was called for an illegal block and set back to its 20. The Lakers could proceed no farther, and on the last play, Sioux linebacker Eric Schmidt barely missed sacking the quarterback, then got back on his feet and tackled the receiver at the Grand Valley 34. All the scoring occurred in the first and last quarters. Peterka opened with a 36-yard field goal. The teams then traded quarterback rushes for scores. Ryan Brady went two yards for Grand Valley, then Klosterman nine yards for UND and Brady again for 12 yards. On the play before Brady’s second touchdown to put Grand Valley ahead with 2 minutes 46 seconds left, UND cornerback Dustin Thornburg stripped the ball from receiver David Kircus, but Kircus recovered his own fumble on the UND 12-yard line. “They scored on the next play, so that was a big swing for them,” Sioux Coach Dale Lennon said later. “That put our backs to the wall, but we came through. It was a team victory — offense, defense, special teams. We’re all a part of it. “And we went about our business very calmly, very professionally. There was no panic, no chaos.” The late Chuck Johnson was the editor of Sioux Sports, a quarterly publication of the UND Alumni office, Letterwinner’s Club, and athletic department. A 1948 UND graduate from Williston, N.D., Johnson was a longtime sports editor at the Milaukee Journal.

As UND lined up for the next play, it started again, but the Sioux took immediate charge. Perkerewicz followed his blockers over left tackle, and when Grand Valley’s defenders packed the middle, Perkerewicz bounced to the outside and scored untouched.
