Post game notes: Northern Colorado at South Dakota
Post-game Notes: Northern Colorado at South Dakota | October 30, 2010
- Junior safety Elliott Dorsey and sophomore defensive end Marcus Lucas both got their first career starts as the Bears used just their third different starting lineup of the year on defense. On offense, junior right guard Rick Aversano got his first start for the Bears.
- Sophomore kickoff returner Dominic Gunn moved up two spots on the career charts into seventh in school history. He passes both Jesse Tann (1993-96) and Mick Busch (1973-74) and now has 693 for his career after 127 kickoff return yards on the day.
- Gunn’s 127 kickoff return yards on the day also give him 499 for the year, which is sixth on the Northern Colorado single-season charts. He is 39 yards shy of the school’s Division I record of 538 by Eric Brown in 2007.
- His 127 kickoff return yards are the ninth most in single game history, the second time in the last three games Gunn has posted a top-10 game in return yardage.
- Senior corner Korey Askew tallied his 150th career tackle in the game and he now has 151 after notching five.
- Junior punter Cameron Kaman had a 54-yard punt in the third quarter, giving him at least one 50-yard boot in 10 of his last 11 games and in his last four.
- Sophomore wide receiver Jace Davis had his second straight 100-yard plus receiving game and the third of his career. Davis had seven receptions for 185 yards on the afternoon and surpassed 1,000 career receiving yards. He now has 1,033 in 19 games played.
- Junior defensive end Nick Hernon tallied the 100th tackle of his career with his seventh and final tackle in the game.
- Junior quarterback Dylan Orms surpassed 2,000 career yards of total offense in the game and now has 2,237. Junior wide receiver Patrick Walker also topped 1,500 all purpose yards for his career as he now has 1,525.
- Sophomore linebacker Cameron Friend tallied a career-best 10 tackles, bettering his previous high of six from the 2009 season opener at Kansas. Senior safety Max Hewitt also tallied a season-best 11 tackles.
- The Bears now have six players this season with double figure tackle games (John Eddy 4, Matt King 3, Korey Askew 1, Cameron Friend 1, Max Hewitt 1, Brandon Owens 1).
- Junior Brandon Owens became the third player to block a kick this year when he blocked a punt in the third quarter. He joins John Eddy and Elliott Dorsey
