Bucs' Last Time vs. the Blueboys: The Beloit College Football team had a tough time getting anything going against a multi-talented Illinois College squad on October 19, 2013, at Strong Stadium on the way to a 37-7 loss.  The Buccaneer defense shut down the Blueboys' first two drives but IC broke through with 5:20 left in the opening quarter for the first score of the game.  They added a second TD late in the period to lead 14-0 after one.  Two touchdowns and a safety in the second quarter made it a 30-0 game at the break.  Neither team scored in the third quarter before each added a TD in the final stanza.  After Illinois College made it 37-0 with 4:45 left the Bucs got on the board when Lukeson Versulien, who got the drive going with a 40-yard kickoff return, took an end-around eight yards for a TD with 3:04 left to complete a six-play, 47-yard drive.  IC then ran out the remaining time for the win.  The Blueboys won the yardage battle 580-126.  Mason Dixon had 65 yards rushing on 15 carries while Kam Sallee threw for 62 yards.  Jake Lackovic caught a pair of passes for 52 yards, including a key 17-yard grab during Beloit's TD drive.  On defense David Lafayette and Riley Pearson each finished with ten tackles while Jake Fisher had nine.  Derell Carter had the lone sack of the game for a loss of six yards and also recovered a fumble...
