    1

    After a season opening loss last week, Carleton (Minn.) football coach Bob Pagel said his team’s focus was to “have a big start early by establishing the running game” in Saturday’s non-conference home opener against Knox College.

    Enter Chris Madden.

    The St. Joseph graduate had touchdown runs of 11 and 23 yards in the first quarter to propel the Knights to a 40-14 victory at Laird Stadium in Northfield, Minn.

    MMQB Week 3 Alumni Snapshot: Justin Otto

    1

    Bradford graduate Justin Otto came up with an interception for No. 5 Minnesota State in a 31-0 victory over No. 12 St. Cloud (Minn.) in the season-opener on Thursday in Mankato, Minn.

    Otto’s interception came on the second play of the game. He returned it 20 yards to the St. Cloud State 27.

    “We were in Cover 3 and he ran a slant in front of me, kind of tipped off his hand and I made a break on it,” Otto said in the postgame press conference. “It kind of hit me in the stomach and I just started running with it. It happened really fast. It wasn’t anything too special. I kind of got lucky.”

The Lancers were that good defensively on Saturday night.

St. Joseph limited the Cavaliers to 42 total yards, including minus-12 on 34 rushing attempts, in a thorough 26-0 Metro Classic Conference victory at Ameche Field.

Two of those losses came against eventual state runner-up Franklin, including a heartbreaking 17-14 defeat in the second round of the WIAA Division-1 playoffs.
