CROOKSTON, Minn. (Ed Widseth Field) -- Sophomore running back Jalen Frye and senior quarterback Jared Henning each rushed for over 100 yards to help the Bemidji State University football program to a 27-10 win at University of Minnesota Crookston Saturday afternoon. Frye finished with 108 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns while senior quarterback Jared Henning ran for 135 yards and one touchdown and threw one passing score.
The "Gang Green" defense forced four interceptions and six sacks while shutting out the Golden Eagles in the second half. Junior linebacker Gabe Ames totaled three sacks, the first Beaver with three sacks in a game since 2011 while senior defensive lineman Alex Hoffman led the unit with eight tackles.
The Beavers nabbed an interception on the Golden Eagles’ first and second possessions, which led to Henning’s two touchdowns in the game. He first found sophomore wide receiver Brendan Beaulieu for 24 yards followed by an 11-yard rush by Henning to put BSU ahead late in the first quarter, 14-0.
Coming out of halftime with a 14-10 lead, the BSU defense shut out UMC the rest of the way while adding to its lead late in the third quarter. Frye ran in his first of two three-yard touchdowns to go up, 20-10, before his second late in the fourth quarter. Junior linebacker Jaylen Jenkins sealed the game with an interception.
Henning went 10-of-20 passing while Beaulieu led the receiving corps with four catches for 79 yards and one touchdown. The last time two Beavers rushed for over 100 yards came last season against Minnesota Crookston. Henning also became the first BSU quarterback to top the century mark since Jordan Hein in 2017.
Senior defensive back Michael Junker recorded an interception for the third straight game to start the season, now ranking tied for fourth all-time at BSU with 12 career interceptions. Jenkins, Junker, senior defensive back Ryan Kinard and sophomore defensive back Jake West combined for the Beavers’ takeaways.
Bemidji State returns to Chet Anderson Stadium Saturday, Sept. 28 for its annual Shrine Game against No. 13 University of Minnesota Duluth. The Beavers and Bulldogs kickoff at 4 p.m. in the 59th game of the series.
