DePauw Tops Colorado College in Overtime, 37-34
October 25, 2008
October 25, 2008, Greencastle, Ind. - A 20-yard field goal by Jordan Havercamp in overtime gave DePauw University a 37-34 victory over Colorado College at Blackstock Stadium this afternoon. The visitors had a chance to tie the game, but Tyler Brickell's 3-point attempt from 41 yards out was no good. The two teams combined for 932 yards of total offense, with DePauw accumulating 523 of them.
DePauw improves to 5-2 on the season and 3-2 in SCAC action, while Colorado College falls to 0-6 overall and 0-5 in conference play. It was the second-ever football meeting between the two schools. Last year, it took two overtimes for DePauw to prevail, 41-40.
DePauw led 21-14 at halftime, but needed a 65-yard drive to tie the game with 13.1 seconds left, when junior quarterback Spud Dick found Alex Koors in the end zone on a 4th and goal play from the 5 yard line. Dick completed 32-of-44 passes for a career-high 404 yards and three touchdowns along with two interceptions. Koors was on the receiving end of two of the scoring throws, and had 8 receptions for 82 yards on the afternoon. Bryan Mulligan caught 10 passes for 115 yards, while Chris Gasbarra grabbed 5 balls for 57 yards and a touchdown. Derrick Karazsia rushed for 95 yards on 21 carries and one touchdown.
Dick's performance moves him to second all-time among DePauw quarterbacks (behind Jeff Voris, 1986-89) for career passing yards and completions. His seventh career 300+ yard passing game (and fourth this season) ties him for the all-time lead with Voris and Jason Lee (1999-01).
DePauw travels to Sherman, Texas, next Saturday for an SCAC game at Austin College. The play-by-play can be heard live via student radio station WGRE (91.5 FM or online via this link).Back
