THINGS TO KNOW...THE GAMEThe boys of fall are back for the Bemidji State University football program as the squad takes on Northern State University in the 2018 season opener Thursday night at Chet Anderson Stadium. The Beavers and Wolves have been near the top of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference North Division standings for thepastfewseasonsandwillmeetintheseasonopenerforthefirsttimeintheseries history.

THE SERIESBemidji State has extended its series lead over Northern State, thanks to three straight wins in the last three seasons, to now hold a series record of 21-19-1. The BSU/NSU series began Sept. 27, 1957 in Bemidji, Minn., while the Wolves won the game, 14-13. Bemidji State is 14-4 against Northern State since 2000 and won its most recent matchup, 44-17, in Aberdeen, S.D. Head Coach Brent Bolte, in his third season as BSU’s head coach, is 17-6 since taking the reins of the program. His 17 wins since 2016 are the most for anyBSUheadcoachintheirfirsttwoseasons.BoltehashelpedtheBeaverstofinishamongthe topfive inscoringoffenseanddefenseoverhisfirst twoseasons as head coach.

THE TEAMSBemidji State: One of the most consistent positions for BSU over the past three seasons has become vacant. Junior Jared Henning and redshirt freshman BrandonAltarebothpoisedtofillintheroleofstartingquarterbackforoneofthe NSIC’s top three scoring offenses over the past two seasons. In total, the Beaverswillfilltheshoesof11graduatedstartersamongoffenseanddefense.A select group of team captains will be the backbone of the team throughout the season, including senior running back Andrew Lackowski, senior safety John Vogeler, junior defensive back Michael Junker and junior offensive tackle Joe Woods. The changes felt this season will include the team’s offensive and defen-sive coordinator positions, which became vacant after the 2017 season. Defen-sivecoordinatorJamieBischentershisfirstseasonatthepositionwiththeBea-vers, while co-offensive coordinator Karson Pike returns to the coaching staff after serving as a graduate assistant from 2010-11. Co-offensive coordinator Ryan Olson was promoted to the position after serving as the team’s offensive line coach and running game coordinator. Lackowski is the offense’s most productive yardage producer returning after ranking third in the NSIC with 87.2 rush yards per game and sixth with 109.6totalyardspergame.Hefinishedwith959rushingyards,247receivingyards and nine total touchdowns for the Beavers. Junior wide receivers Jake AndersonandBlairVanEsseachledBSUthroughtheairwithfivereceivingtouchdowns and each averaged at least 16.3 yards per reception. The defensive backfield of the “GangGreen” is set to terrorize oppos-ing quarterbacks all season with the return of 2018 D2Football Preseason All-American Gunner Olszewski and 2017 D2CCA Football All-Super Region Four First Teamer John Vogeler. Vogeler totaled five interceptions a season ago,returning three for touchdowns. Olszewski is 10 solo tackles and 393 punt re-turn yards shy of the Beaver Football all-time records. The front seven of the defense will see plenty of change except for returning all-conference linebacker Gabe Ames, who recorded 40 tackles, including 23 solo, with 5.0 tackles for a lossand3.0sacksinfivestartslastseason.

Northern State: The Northern State football team is coming off their third straight 6-5 season in 2017. They return one NSIC All-Conference performer in Noah MacPherson. NSU seniors MacPherson and sophomore wide receiver Zech Culbreath were picked as the NSU Players to Watch in the 2018 NSIC Preseason Coaches’ Poll. The Wolves bring the conference’s 10th ranked de-fense and 12th ranked offense in total yards from last season into 2018. NSU finished10thinbothscoringoffenseanddefenselastseasonaswell.

TheBeavers“GangGreen”defensesetthetempoearly with two sacks on an opening three-and-out to set up a 65-yard punt return by junior corner back Gunner Olszewski. His season-long punt return set up the BSU offense at the Augustana 3-yardline, which was con-verted for seven points on the next play by senior running back Tahi Nomane. The Vikings used time of possession and turn-overs to take control after the Beavers’ opening score. Augustana forced two Bemidji State three-and-outs on their next two offensive possessions and tied the game at 7-7 following senior quarterback Jordan Hein’s second interception of the day. After two more Bemidji State three-and-outs, Augustana took control of the ball in BSU territory and went on to take a 14-7 lead just before halftime with a 25-yard touchdown pass. Another huge special teams play set up Bemidji State’s second touchdown of the day as junior Ryan Kinard brought back the second-half-opening kickoff 82 yards to the Augustana 12-yardline. Two plays later, Hein found junior running back Andrew Lackowski for his second touchdown of the season, this time from nine

yards out, to tie the game at 14-14. Augustana regained the lead midway through the fourthquarterwitha24-yardfieldgoalattempt,butsawthe lead go the Bemidji State two possessions later. The Beaver offense started from their own 24-yardline and drove 76 yards in 1:25 to take a 21-17 lead. Hein threw his second touchdown pass of the day, this time going to senior wide receiver Blake Holder for 36 yards. Following a 19-yard touchdown pass by Augustana with 22 seconds left in the game, the Bemidji State of-fense answered with short sideline passes to conserve timeandworkthefieldforafieldgoalopportunityastimeexpired.JuniorkickerIsaacAanerudmadehisfirstfieldgoal in two tries on the day, this time from 38 yards out to send the game to overtime.

MINOT, N.D. (Herb Parker Stadium) -- The rushing attack of Bemidji State University continued to shine in a 40-14 win against Minot State University Saturday at Herb Parker Stadium in Minot, N.D. BSU’s (5-2, 3-0 NorthernSunIntercollegiateConferenceNorth)“GangGreen”defensehelpedsecuretheteam’sfourthwinina row with a second half shutout against MiSU (1-6, 1-2 NSIC North). Bemidji State rushed for a season-high 328 yards, be-hind the legs of junior running back Andrew Lackowski with 154 yards and senior running back Tahi Nomane with 97 yards. Nomane punched in two touchdowns on the ground, including a season-long 28 yard run in the second quarter. The BSU defense shut out the MiSU offense in the second half, which included two three-and-outs and two turnover on downs from within the red zone. Junior corner back Gunner Olszewski kept his nose around the football with a team-high 10 tackles, including one tackle for a loss. MinotStatedroveintoBSUterritoryonitsfirstdrivebut was forced to punt after a 4th and one, setting up BSU at its own 20-yard line. Bemidji State drove the full 80 yards in seven plays, capped by a 42-yard touchdown runbyseniorquarterbackJordanHein.Hein’sfirstrush-ing touchdown of the season put BSU up early, 6-0.

Two plays later, Hein found sophomore full back Matt Gross on a four-yard touchdown pass in the middle of the end zone to take a 12-0 lead.

The“GangGreen”defenseforceditsfirstthree-and-out of the day to set up BSU’s third score of the day.
