Concordia tops Gustavus 44-10
to Hold Share of MIAC Lead at 5-1

10/23/99
by Jerrry Pye, Concordia SID
Moorhead, MN--

The Concordia football team piled up 586 in offense while pulling away from Gustavus today to post a 44-10 win and retain a share of the MIAC lead.  The Cobbers are 5-1 in the league, 5-2 overall. Gustavus suffered only its second loss but now sits at 4-2 in the MIAC and, with three teams ahead of them at 5-1, will need some help to get a title share.  St. John's and St. Thomas both won today to join the Cobbers at 5-1.

Concordia jumped to a 17-3 lead with 2:52 left in the first half on a 9 yard pass from Jeff Hertel to Adam Strainer. But Gustavus came right back with a 10-play, 56 yard drive, capped by a Travis Prunty 2 yard run for a TD, to make it 17-10 at the half.

Hertel ran for a 15 yard TD two minutes into the second half to make it 24-10. But the Cobbers didn't reach any kind of a comfort zone until Jason Braaten scored from 7 yards with 13:31 left in the game to make it 31-10. After that the Concordia backups continued the Cobber rushing clinic.

Gustavus came into the game with the league's second best defense, giving up just 236 yards and 11 points per game. The Cobber offense, which has sputtered most of the year, came together to racked up 370 yards rushing and another 226 in the air. Senior fullback Nathan Reiff again led the Cobbers' backfield by committee, pounding out 95 yards on 17 carres. Hertel, the Cobbers' sophomore quarterback, had his best day yet, connecting on 15 of 20 passes for 213 yards. Sophomore wide out Raleigh Schmidt led the Cobber receivers with 125 yards on six catches.

The Cobber defense continued its stingy play, this time against a Gustavus team that came in leading the league in scoring at 33 points per game and was fourth in total yards at 396 per game. The Gusties' Prunty, the league rushing leader at 136 yards per game coming in, was held to 43 yards on 16 carries. Gustavus ended the day with just 61 yards rushing and 166 passing. The Cobbers have now given up just 54 points in 6 MIAC games.

Concordia travels to St. Paul to take on 5-2 Macalester next week. The Gusties head home to host Hamline (1-6, 0-6).
-----
What the leaders have left:
Concordia: at Mac, home vs St. Thomas, Augsburg in Dome
St. John's: home vs St. Olaf, at Carleton, Gustavus in Dome
St. Thomas: home vs Bethel, at Concordia, Hamline in Dome
Gustavus: home vs Hamline, at St. Olaf, St. John's in the Dome
Bethel: at St. Thomas, home vs Augsburg, Carleton in the Dome

Some (of many) MIAC Title scenarios: as of 10/24
(Note, the MIAC title is shared if two or more teams end at the top with identical records, regardless of head to head results.)

If St. John's wins final three they get at least a title share and MIAC automatic bid to NCAA playoffs.

If Concordia wins final three they get at least a title share and a shot at an at large bid to NCAA playoffs. Add in a win by Gusties over St. John's and Cobbers get automatic playoff bid.

If St. Thomas wins final three they get at least a title share and a shot at at large bid to NCAA playoffs. Add in a win by Gusties over St. John's and Tommies get automatic playoff bid.

If Gustavus wins final three they get a title share if Bethel wins over St. Thomas and St. Thomas then beats Concordia. (There are other ways but this scenario requires no big upsets.) At large playoff bid at 8-2 unlikely with losses to both Tommies and Concordia. Gustavus gets automatic bid in two way tie for title at 7-2 with St. John's or three way tie for title at 7-2 with Bethel and St. John's. (Both of these scenarios require two more losses for both Concordia and St. Thomas.)

If Bethel wins final three they get a title share if St. Thomas wins over Concordia and Gusties win over St. John's. (There are other ways but this scenario requires no big upsets.) At large playoff bid at 8-2 unlikely with losses to both Gusties and Concordia.

updated 11/7/99 by Jerry Pyle
Possible 5 way tie for title at 2 losses. UST gets the bid

Note: In the case of a three way tie, if one of the teams has a 2-0 record against the other two that team wins the tiebreaker. Head to head is looked at before eliminating the team most recently in the playoffs.

There is a possible 5-way tie for first at 7-2: St. Thomas loses to Bethel (done), Concordia loses to St. Thomas (done), Gustavus beats St. John's. UST, Cord, Gustavus, Bethel, and SJU all could end 7-2.

Their records against each other (to look at head to head first) would all be 2-2.

In this case the first thing that's done is eliminate SJU because they were most recently in the playoffs. Then we look at head to head again and Bethel falls out as 1-2 against the rest. GAC is 1-2 and gets thrown out as well. Cord is 2-1 UST is 2-1. UST would win the tiebreaker with Cord head to head. UST gets the automatic bid.

10/25/99
Concordia coach Jim Christopherson has nominated the Concordia offensive line and defensive line as candidates for MIAC Player of the Week for their play in the win over Gustavus. The MIAC Players of the Week are announced Monday afternoon.

Offensive  Line Nomination

Concordia's offensive line dominated the line of scrimmage to propel the Cobbers to a 44-10 win over Gustavus Saturday. Concordia moved to 5-1 in the MIAC to hold its share of the MIAC lead while Gustavus dropped to 4-2. Concordia rushed for 370 yards and passed for another 226 yards against a Gustie team that was No.2 in the MIAC, giving up just 252 yards and 11 points per game. Concordia controled the ball for 36 minutes. Five Cobber running backs had 45 or more yards rushing and quarterback Jeff Hertel had time to complete 15 of 20 passing attempts for 213 yards. Starters on the Cobber offensive line are:
Joel Nelson (OG, Jr. 6-1, 250, Fargo ND, South HS),
Josh Thompson (OG, So., 6-2, 270, West Fargo, ND, West Fargo HS),
Chad Quamme (Jr.,  6-0, 250, Fargo, ND, South HS)

Concordia moved to 5-1 in the MIAC to hold its share of the MIAC while Gustavus dropped to 4-2. The Cobber defense stifled a Gustie team that came in as the league's top scoring offense at 33 points and 396 yards per game. Gustavus was held to just 61 yards rushing, 166 yards passing (16-35), 2 rushing first downs, and 23 minutes on the field. MIAC rushing leader Travis Prunty was held to just 44 yards on 16 carries.

10/21 Gustavus Pre-game notes by Tim Kennedy, Gustavus SID

Gustavus vs. Concordia 10/23/99

Prunty Putting Up Big Numbers -

Senior running back Travis Prunty continues to put up impressive numbers for the Gustavus offense. Through six games, Prunty has carried 147 times for 787 yards and 11 touchdowns.  He needs one rushing touchdown to tie the current school record for rushing TDs in a season which is 12 set by Tom Dahlberg in 1970.   Prunty is currently averaging 131.2 yards per game in all games which ranks 16th in the nation.  He has also scored 66 points in the six games for an average of 11.0 points per game which ranks 14th in the nation.  In MIAC play, Prunty leads the MIAC in rushing with an average of 136.2 yards per game and in scoring with an average of 12.0 points per game.  Prunty needs 402 yards in the teamís final four games to break the Gustavus single season rushing record of 1,188 yards set by Kevin Grussing in 1993.  Prunty moved past current head coach Jay Schoenebeck into fifth place on the Gustavus All-Time Rushing list last weekend as he has now totalled 2,475 yards on 516 carries.  Schoenebeck finished his career (1976-79) with 2,471 yards on 416 carries.

Gusties Continue To Be Listed Among National Statistical Leaders -

The NCAA Division III Statistical Leaders through the games of October 16 were released this Tuesday and Gustavus continues to rank among the national leaders in several categories.  Offensively, the Gusties rank 21st in rushing averaging 222.5 yards per game, and 24th in scoring with an average of 34.3 points per game.  Defensively, the squad ranks 15th in rushing allowed with an average of 73.0 yards per game, 18th in scoring allowed with an average of 11.7 points per game and 16th in turnover margin with an +1.66 turnover advantage per game.

Brian Bergstrom Named Football Gazette Division III Co-Defensive Player
of the Week -

Sophomore linebacker Brian Bergstrom, who was named MIAC Defensive Player of the Week on Monday was honored as Division III Co-Defensive Player of the Week by Football Gazette Magazine on Tuesday.   Bergstrom, a native of Burnsville, Minn., recorded 16 tackles (4 solo, 12 assists), forced a fumble, and intercepted a pass against Bethel last week.  Bergstrom forced a fumble on the Bethel 28-yard line in the first quarter that the Gusties recovered and turned into a TD seven plays later. In the second quarter, Bergstrom intercepted a pass on the Bethel 32 yard line and returned it to the Royal six-yard line which the Gusties turned into another touchdown five plays later. Bergstrom, the team's leading tackler with 51 tackles (12 solo, 39 assists including eight for loss), has anchored a Gustavus defense that has been ranked in the top five nationally against the run all season and in the top 30 nationally in total defense.

Gustavusí Hook and Ladder Play Against Bethel Selected as Compaq College
Football Play of the Week -

The spectacular hook-and-ladder play that the Gustavus offense converted into a 47-yard touchdown play against Bethel College last Saturday has been selected as the Compaq College Football Play of the Week.  On a fourth-down-and-two play with :20 seconds left in the first half, Gustavus quarterback Joe Thorvig completed a 16-yard pass to receiver Greg TeBrake who took the catch and flipped a lateral to running back Ryan Britz who scampered 31 yards down the sideline for a touchdown and a 19-10 halftime lead.  The Compaq College Play of the Week program is sponsored by Compaq Computer Corporation and administered by the College Sports Information Directors of America and the Football Writers Association of America.  The plays are nominated by category (best run, best pass, etc.) by college sports information directors each Monday and then assembled and judged by a panel of sportswriters and sportscasters.   The top play in each of several categories is then transmitted via satellite to all television stations in the United States.  Gustavus is the first Division III institution to receive the Compaq Play of the Week award.


10/23 Concordia's quick game day preview

The Cobbers, 4-2 overall, 4-1, in the MIAC, will try to hold their share of the MIAC lead today against fellow league leader Gustavus, a team that has been impressive all year. The only stumble for the 5-1 Gusties has been a 18-17 loss to a very good St. Thomas team.

The Cobbers have been winning with defense, giving up just 288 yards per game and 44 total points in five MIAC games. But the Gusties have held MIAC opponents to just 252 yards per game and 56 points.

The Cobber offense has relied on a running game but the Gusties lead in that category as well, 215 ypg to 195 ypg. And the Gusties average 386 total yards per game to the Cobbers' 296.

The Gusties have the MIAC's leading rusher in Travis Prunty (136 ypg). And their quarterback, Joe Thorvig, was last week's MIAC Player of the Week after going 17-24 for 209 yards and three TDs in the Gustie win over Bethel.
