Gustavus senior Jeffrey Dubose (St. Paul, Minn./St. Croix Lutheran) has had an outstanding season, but Saturday he was at his all-time best with a record-breaking performance in a 34-19 win over Carleton. The Gustie running back had 344 all-purpose yards and four touchdowns to set new Gustavus single-game rushing, season rushing and season rushing touchdowns records. For his record-setting efforts, Dubose was named the MIAC Football Athlete-of-the-Week for the second time this fall.

Dubose now has 1,261 yards, breaking the old record of 1,233. His four rushing scores pushed his season total to 21, bettering the old Gustie record of 17, and he also caught four passes for 80 yards in the win.

Heflin made 13 tackles Saturday - six solo and seven assists - with 3.0 tackles-for-a-loss against Gustavus. The Gusties managed just 23 yards on Heflin's 13 stops, and it was his third-straight game with double-digit tackles. His 13 tackles and three TFL led the MIAC Saturday, and his six solo stops ranked third. This season, Heflin's 59 total tackles rank 11th in the MIAC. he has 29 solo tackles and 30 assists to go along with 3.5 tackles-for-a-loss, and he averages 10.0 tackles per game in conference play.

Saturday's loss dropped Carleton a game below .500 overall at 4-5, and the team is now 2-5 in the conference, along in seventh place in the MIAC standings. The Knights conclude the 2013 season Saturday at home. Carleton will host Augsburg at 1 p.m. in the final regular-season game for both teams.

Thomas Schleusener, Gustavus

In its recent winning streak, Gustavus' special teams have certainly been "special," thanks in large part to kicker/punter Thomas Schleusener (Rapid City, S.D./Stevens). The Gustie junior continued his tremendous season with a perfect placekicking day and 10 points in a 34-19 win over Carleton Sunday, in addition to a 45.5 yards per punt average in the field-position game. For his performance, Schleusener was named the MIAC Football Special Teams Athlete-of-the-Week for the second week in a row.

Schleusener was a perfect 4-for-4 on PATs and a perfect 2-for-2 on field goals Saturday to score 10 points in the kicking game in Gustavus' latest victory. His two field goals came from 22 and 33 yards out. He was also outstanding as a punter, with a total of 182 yards on four punts for his tremendous 45.5 average. He had a long of 57 yards, two inside the 20 and one touchback. Schleusener's 55 points leads all MIAC kickers, and he's 8-for-13 on field goals and 31-for-34 on PATs this season.

Thanks to Saturday's big win, the Gusties are assured of a winning season overall at 6-3, and will finish at least .500 in conference play with a 4-3 record. Gustavus is a game behind a trio of teams tied for second place at 5-2 in the league. The Gusties conclude their 2013 season Saturday with a trip to Moorhead, Minn., to face No. 24-ranked Concordia (7-2, 5-2 MIAC) in a tough final test.
