Dick (pictured left) earned offensive player of the week honors and completed a career-high 37 of 45 passes (82.2%) for a career-best 395 yards. He threw for two touchdowns as well, as the Tigers rallied to defeat Birmingham-Southern, 31-21. In the second half alone, Dick connected on 20 of 23 passes for 261 yards for a 196.63 efficiency rating and completed all 11 third-quarter attempts.

His 37 completions were five off the SCAC record of 42 set by Jared Tharpe of Rose-Hulman Oct. 6, 2001, and just four shy of Jason Lee's school record 41 against Hope on September 16, 2000. Dick's 395 passing yards ranked seventh in DePauw history and his 401 total offense yards were third.
