IC (3-0, 2-0 MWC) gained 552 yards of total offense, thanks to its best rushing output of the season. The Blueboys' passing game was also on point as Bates found eight different receivers. Brock Thompson led the way with nine catches for 100 yards. Colin Duling added five catches for 67 yards and a touchdown.

Brothers Jake DeFauw (10 tackles) and Dylan DeFauw (7 tackles, 2 break ups) led the IC defense. Willie Barefield added seven tackles. Mitch Brasher was 4-of-5 on extra point kicks.

Illinois College is 3-0 for the first time since 2004, when the team started 4-0. The 2011 Blueboys will have a chance to match that when they host Monmouth College next Saturday at 1 p.m.
