The Series:  The Buccaneers and Foresters are meeting for the 78th time in a series LFC leads 35-31 with 11 ties.  Beloit has won three straight in the series for the first time since they won five straight from 1988-92.  The Foresters' most recent win in the series came on September 29, 2007, 44-36 in Beloit.  The two programs first met during the 1891 season, a 10-4 Lake Forest victory.

Buccaneers Last Time Out: The Bucs rallied back from a two-TD deficit but fell short in a 28-21 Homecoming Game loss to Grinnell College at Strong Stadium last Saturday, October 1.  The Bucs got on the board first, completing a six-play, 63-yard drive with an 11-yard end-around by Derek Carrier four minutes into the game.  They made that lead stand up thru the quarter to lead 7-0 after one.  Grinnell tied it up at the 9:22 mark of the second quarter with a 25-yard scoring run by Cody Weber and then took the lead into the lockerroom on a three-yard run from Jason Peters two minutes before the break.  The Pioneers increased their advantage to 21-7 with 3:15 left in the third quarter on a 78-yard scoring pass and run from Mike McCabe to Trent Baker but Beloit cut into the lead two minutes later when Brian Maughn hooked up with Carrier on a 44-yard scoring play.  GC led 21-14 after three.  Grinnell put some distance between the teams with 3:11 remaining on a 15-yard run by Weber, capping a quick 53-second drive after a Beloit fumble in their own territory.  But Beloit kept within a touchdown when Maughn hit Carrier from five yards out with just under a minute left.  The Pioneers recovered the onside kick and ran out the final seconds to secure the win.  Maughn finished with 254 yards passing while Terence Steward had 34 yards rushing on 12 carries.  Carrier caught 11 passes for 150 yards and all three TDs.  Weber rushed for 127 yards on 20 carries while McCabe threw for 333 and Baker caught seven passes for 140 yards.  On defense, Zach Bock had nine tackles, plus half a sack, while Kenny Williams and Rob Wujek each had eight tackles.  Mark Coogan had 1.5 sacks and Ian Dunning also recorded a sack and had the game's only interception.  Jeremy Wiles, Drew Blumberg and Richard Renteria each had six tackles for the Pioneers.  Tom Brinkman and Matt John recorded sacks.  Wiles also recovered a pair of fumbles.

Last Time vs. the Foresters: The Bucs needed an extra couple of plays but came away with a 33-27 Midwest Conference overtime win at Lake Forest College on October 9, 2010.  Derek Carrier caught a 22-yard TD pass from Brian Maughn on the second play of their OT possession to end the game.  The Buccaneer defense had shut down the Foresters in their possession to open the extra period, forcing a 22-yard missed field goal.  The Buccaneers were rolling early.  Terence Steward scored from ten yards away to cap a seven-play drive to make it 7-0 at the 5:33 mark and then Mat Kahl kicked a 32-yard field goal with 46 seconds left in the quarter to make it 10-0 after one.  LFC cut into the lead at 6:48 of the second with a short scoring pass from Geoff Sobey to Kevin Davis before Beloit retook their ten-point advantage at the break when Steward scored his second TD, this one from one yard out.  The Buccaneers made it 24-7 early in the third quarter when Odin Grina caught a 21-yard scoring pass from Maughn but the Foresters got themselves back into the contest, getting a three-yard scoring pass from Sobey to Josh Kabala at 6:26 and field goals by Tim Gruzwalski at 4:30 (23 yards) and :16 (29 yards) to make it 24-20 entering the final quarter.  Kahl booted his second field goal of the game, from 30 yards away, early in the fourth quarter to give the Bucs a seven-point cushion.  But Lake Forest struck late in regulation to force overtime, scoring on a five-yard run by Brock Stenberg with 1:13 left to tie it at 27-all and set the stage for Carrier's game-winning catch.  Steward finished with 67 yards rushing on 21 carries.  Maughn was 13 of 27 for 229 yards but had three interceptions.  Grina led the receiving corp with five catches for 108 yards while Carrier finished with four catches for 74 yards.  Stenberg ran for 104 yards on 23 carries to pace the Foresters while Sobey passed for 143 yards.  Davis caught seven passes for 94 yards.  On defense Tony Baratti had 13 tackles, 3.5 for loss, while also forcing and recovering a fumble that led to Grina's TD catch to open the second half.  Chris Halcsik had nine tackles.  Valde Raizys, who also had a sack, and Michael Underwood each recorded interceptions, with Underwood returning his for 38 yards.  Anthony Garetto and Tanner Compton both had nine tackles for LFC while Dylan Burke recorded a pair of sacks.  Luke Butts had two interceptions, returning one 61 yards to set up the late-third quarter field goal.

Up Ahead for the Bucs:  The Buccaneers hit the road for two weeks, playing at Ripon College next Saturday and at Monmouth College on October 22 before returning to Strong Stadium on October 29 for Senior Day against the Vikings of Lawrence University.
