Otterbein Cardinals gets 2010 off to good start; rolls Husson 38-0

There’s not many times during a college football season in NCAA Division III, that a team travels 19-hours to play an opponent. Road trips usually are between 2-5 hours. But every once in awhile, teams will find an opponent that they haven’t played before and the two schools will play each other.

Such was the case on Friday night, when the Otterbein Cardinals traveled 19 hours by bus to Bangor, Maine to play Husson University in the opening game for the 2010 football season.

For those of you who might not be familiar with Husson University, it is a private college with 3,000 students. It was founded in 1898 as Shaw School of Business by Chesley Husson. The Eagles play in the North Atlantic Conference.

That 19-hour bus ride didn’t hamper the Cardinals at all, as they shut down Husson, 38-0.

Senior running back Colton Coy rushed for 166 yards and two touchdowns while the Cardinal defense limited the eagles to 116 yards of total offense, forcing four turnovers in the non-conference game.

Coy opened the scoring for Otterbein on its second possession of the game, a 4-yard touchdown run, which ended a 12-play, 85-yard drive and put the Cardinals up 7-0 at the 3:41 mark of the first quarter.

Otterbein, ranked 20th by, scored on its next two possessions of the football, a pair of  scoring passes of six and 10 yards from junior quarterback Austin Schlosser to junior wide receiver Trey Fairchild and senior wide receiver Steve Kuzyk, respectively, to move the score to 21-0 at the end of the first half.

Coy was still a force to be reckoned with in the second half, breaking loose for a 19-yard run for a touchdown 24 seconds into the second half following an interception by Otterbein junior linebacker Shane Centers. The Cardinals led by a score of 28-0 with 14:36 to go in the third quarter.

Senior placekicker David Brewer added a 38-yard field goal and sophomore running back Brit Musal, who replaced Colton Coy midway through the fourth quarter, finished the scoring for the visitors with a 13-yard run.

Coy rushed the ball 27 times for 166 yards and two scores and also had a 32-yard pass reception.

Schlosser completed 14 0f 23 passes for 204 yards and two touchdowns. Kuzyk led the team with six catches for 54 yards while Fairchild caught five balls for 81 yards.

Defensively, Otterbein held Husson to 70 yards rushing and 48 yards passing.

Otterbein has a bye on Saturday September 11 and will host 11th-ranked Ohio Northern September 18 in its Ohio Athletic Conference home opener. The Polar Bears opened 2010 with a victory of its own, 35-21 over Wisconsin-River Falls Thursday at home in Ada.
