RANKINGS: Both teams are unranked.
COACHES: Concordia head coach Terry Horan (Concordia 89) is in his third year as head football coach at Concordia College. In 2002 he was named the MIAC Coach of the Year as he guided the Cobbers to a second place finish. Concordia went 7-1 in the MIAC and was 7-3 overall. In his first two seasons at the helm, he has compiled an 12-6 conference record and a 14-8 overall mark. Hamline's Donavon Larson enters his third season as the Pipers head coach. Larson brings 20 years of coaching experience that will lead the Pipers to MIAC title contention. In his two previous seasons, Larson has compiled a 5-15 record.


Series Background:
Concordia leads the overall series between the two teams 45-13. The Cobbers have won the last 11 meetings between the two schools. The last time that Hamline was able to defeat Concordia was 1991. Concordia has given up less than 10 points in each of the past five games in the series. 

Last year the Cobbers trailed 7-6 early in the second quarter, but rallied for 34 unanswered points to pick up a 40-7 victory. Ryan Hebrink and Andrew Passanante each scored two TD's, and Hebrink accumulated 337 yards in total  offense in leading the Cobbers to the win. 

Hebrink put the Cobbers on the board with a 15-yard touchdown run with 5:47 left in the first quarter, but the Pipers answered on the following drive, converting a 5-yard pass from Nate Dammann to Dan Ryks, gaining a 7-6 advantage with 14:04 remaining in the first half. Hebrink had all the answers though, hitting Passanante with a 43-yard touchdown pass with 9:07 left in the half, then scoring on a 54-yard run with 1:03 to go. 

The score remained 19-7 through the third quarter, until Bobby Clark broke loose for a 70-yard punt return for a touchdown with 12:20 left in the game.  Concordia added two more touchdowns, a 10-yard strike from Hebrink to Passanante with 4:18 remaining, and a 32-yard completion from backup quarterback Jacob Odermann to Chad Worthington with 2:04  to go, giving the Cobbers a convincing 40-7 victory.

In the past 20 years Concordia has played the Pipers for Homecoming on two other occasions. In 2000, Concordia bolted to a 19-0 lead and then held on for the 26-9 victory, and back in 1998 the Cobbers blanked Hamline 38-0. 

The series between the Cobbers and Pipers have produced two of the strangest final scores in MIAC history. In 1982, Concordia won an offensive showdown 2-0. Hamline turned the tables on the Cobbers in 1975 when they held on for the 3-2 win. Rumor has it that Bucky Burgau tried to score a Cobber runner from second base in the bottom of the seventh in that game but he was thrown out at the plate!
