Saturday, September 6, 2014, 6:00 p.m.

Amos Alonzo Stagg Field, Chicago, Ill.

The Seth Duerr era begins for Beloit College Football as the 28th head football coach in the Buccaneers' 123-year history makes his head coach debut on the road at the University of Chicago.  Duerr arrived in Beloit after two seasons as the assistant head coach and defensive coordinator at Tiffin University in Tiffin, Ohio.

 

The Series: The Buccaneers and Maroons are meeting for the 31st time in a series UC leads 15-14 with one tie.  Chicago has won the last four meetings and six of the last seven.  The most recent BC win came on October 15, 1988, at Strong Stadium, 13-3.  The teams first met in the opening game of the 1894 season, a 16-0 Maroon win.  UC was undefeated in the series thru the first eight meetings, with the only blemish a 17-17 ties in 1901.  The Bucs got their first win in the series in 1939, 6-0.  From 1974 thru 1985 Beloit won 11 of the 12 meetings, including eight straight wins from 1978-85.

 

Bucs' Last Time vs. the Maroons: Beloit kicked off the 2013 season with a 17-0 to the University of Chicago in front of 1,800 fans on September 7, 2013, at Strong Stadium.  The Maroons got the scoring started with a Charles Kurzydlowski 42-yard field goal in the opening quarter and tacked on a 13-yard scoring pass from Vince Cortina to Sam Coleman five minutes before the half to lead 10-0 at the break.  UC closed out the scoring midway through the third quarter on a 17-yard TD pass from Cortina to Coleman.  The Buccaneers put together their best drive of the night after the mid-point of the fourth quarter, which included 22 rushing yards by Mason Dixon and three third-down conversions, but it stalled inside the Chicago 30.  Zach Draus rushed for 47 yards on seven carries with a long of 22 to lead the Buccaneer ground attack.  Will Coyne passed for 47 yards, hitting Nathan Brault four times for 37 yards.  On defense Antonio Jones had 11 tackles, seven solo, to lead Beloit while both Daniel Collins and Jake Fisher had nine.  Collins had two tackles for loss, including one of the Bucs' two sacks, to go with his six solo stops.  Zak Ross-Nash rushed 25 times for 104 yards to pace Chicago while Cortina finished with 101 passing yards, 59 of them to Cole Thoms, who had six catches.  Ben Wade had eight tackles to lead the defense.  Brandon Bolock made seven tackles with one sack and four tackles for loss.  Vincent Beltrano had the games' lone interception and also recovered a fumble.

Notes:  At least early on, the focus of opposing defenses will likely be on sophomore RB Mason Dixon, who rushed for 1,326 yards and 10 TDs in his inaugural season of 2013.  His rushing total was the fourth-highest in Beloit history and included a pair of 200-plus yard games on the ground…Junior WR Michael Nolden had a breakout season of sorts in 2013, leading the team with 26 receptions for 369 yards and five touchdowns.  He didn't have a catch coming into the season…Seniors Jake Fisher and Derell Carter and sophomore Riley Pearson led the Bucs in tackles last season, with Fisher getting 60, Pearson 56 and Carter 52.  Senior Alan Ham is the leading returner in sacks after getting 3.0 last season while Carter had 2.5.  Carter also paced the team with two fumble recoveries.

Up Ahead for the Bucs: Beloit makes its 2014 home debut on Saturday, September 13, against Grinnell College at Strong Stadium.  Kickoff is at 1:00 p.m.  After a weekend off on September 20 they then host Lake Forest College for the Homecoming Game on Saturday, September 27.
