Cobbers vs. Gustavus Preview
The Coaches
Concordia head coach Terry Horan (Concordia ’89) is in his fourth year as head football coach at Concordia College. Last season he helped the Cobbers to a 7-3 overall mark and a 6-2 MIAC record. In 2002 he was named the MIAC Coach of the Year as he guided the Cobbers to a second place finish. In his first three seasons at the helm, he has compiled a 17-8 conference record and a 19-11 overall mark.

Jay Schoenebeck is entering his 11th season as the head coach of the Golden Gusties. He has compiled a mark of 52-48 overall and 47-41 in the MIAC. Schoenebeck’s squads have been ranked in the Division III Top 25 in two of the past four seasons while compiling a record of 26-14 overall and 23-12 in the MIAC. 


The Marquee Matchup - Cobber Blockers vs. Gustavus Linebacker Isaac Sieling
Today's marquee matchup pits the Cobber offensive line - and blocking backs - against the league's top tackler - Isaac Sieling.

Concordia's offensive line - and blocking backs - will have their hands full with Gustavus senior linebacker Isaac Sieling. Sieling currently leads the MIAC in overall tackles (15.0/MIAC games) and is ranked ninth in DIII in that category for overall games (13.7). 

In the team's first conference game against Hamline he had 21 tackles. Against St. John's last week he recorded a game-high nine tackles. In Gustavus' last seven games (carrying over from last season), Sieling has made at least 10 tackles in all but one game - last week against St. John's. The last time he did not record at least five tackles in a game was last year against St. Thomas when he was held to only three tackles. 



National Leaders
Concordia players continue to dot the skyline of the NCAA Division III statistical leaders. Brian Halverson has taken over sole possession of first place in field goals per game. Halverson leads the nation with a 2.3 field goal per game average. The only other Cobber among the national leaders in an offensive category is Andrew Passanante, who ranks 15th in punt return avarage per game (15.1).

On defense the linebacking tandem of Josh Dietz and Doug Runke continue to be a national force. Dietz is tied for eighth in solo tackles per game (8.3) and tied for 23rd in overall tackles per game (12.3). Runke is tied for 12th in forced fumbles per game (0.67). Finally, defensive lineman Adam Campbell continues to have an outstanding senior season. After posting two sacks in each of the team's first two MIAC games, he is tied for 31st in sackes per game (1.2)

As a team, the Cobbers are tied for fourth with DIII powerhouse Mount Union in total defense (173.3 yds per game allowed). They are also eighth in rushing defense (41.3), 11th in scoring defense (8.3 points per game allowed) and tied for 25th in turnover margin (+1.7). 

Gustavus has only two individual players among the national leaders. Linebacker Isaac Sieling is tied for 9th in total tackles (13.7) and Tyler Ringquist is tied for 12th in forced fumbles (0.67).


About Last Year
ST. PETER--- Concordia conceded an early, first quarter safety but then rattled off 24 unanswered points to beat Gustavus 24-2 in the MIAC opener for both teams in St. Peter, Minn.

Concordia's defense held the Gustavus offense to only 32 rushing yards and 203 yards of total offense. The Cobbers gained 119 yards on the ground and threw for 151 yards to finish the game with 270 total offensive yards.

Cobbers vs. Gusties News and Notes

Cobber News and Notes
Ground to a Halt!
The Concordia defense currently ranks number one in the conference in overall yards allowed per game and rushing yards allowed per game. The Cobbers have only given up 35 total rushing yards in the team’s first two conference games. Overall, they are allowing only 169.0 yards in total offense per game. 

In the first two MIAC games of the year, the Cobber defense has not allowed an opposing running back to gain more than 33 yards in a game. In both games, the Cobbers completely shut down a pair of top conference ball carriers. Against St. Thomas, Concordia held Walter Dosh to only 33 rushing yards. The week before, against Coe College (Iowa), Dosh had racked up 115 yards on the ground. On Saturday, the Cobber run-stopping machine limited Carleton’s premiere back, Wade Thompson, to 11 yards. In the Knights' season opener against Lake Forest (Ill.), Thompson had 152 yards on the ground and was named the MIAC Offensive Player of the Week. 

And Even Better Beginnings!
- The Cobbers' 3-0 start marks the best beginning to a season since the 1997 campaign when they went 6-0 to start the year. 

The longest winning streak to open a season in the past 20 years is eight games. The 1988 Concordia team went 8-0 at the beginning of the year and finished the season by winning the MIAC title. This is the best start for a Cobber team under current head coach Terry Horan.

Football Field Nearing 100th Anniversary
It has been 99 years since custodian Ernest Hallander chalked up the Gustavus football field for the first time in 1905. The field has undergone several name changes in the process. It was officially named Hallander Field after its initial caretaker in 1907. In 1926, the field was renamed Gustavus Field and a gate which was donated by the Class of 1924 was placed at the entrance to the field. Then on September 24, 1983, Gustavus Field was given its current name of Hollingsworth Field after long-time coach, teacher and athletic director Lloyd Hollingsworth. The Gustavus field is one of only three football fields in NCAA Division I, II, and III that has been in the same location for over 95 years.

Stifter Reaches 1,000 Yard Plateau in All-Purpose Yards
Junior running back Drew Stifter recently surpassed 1,000 all-purpose yards at Gustavus. All-purpose yards combine rushing, receiving, punt return and kick return yards. His career total currently stands at 1,105 yards. He ranks 10th in career all-purpose yards per game at 85.0
yards per game.
