“When the ball got rolling, these guys are like piranhas,” BSU head coach Brent Bolte said. “If there’s blood in the water, they feed off of big plays on offense and defense.”
Through four games, Brandon Alt has 13 passing touchdowns and 1,353 passing yards, which respectively rank second and third in Division II. He’s also led his team to 36.3 points per game, best in the NSIC, and leads the conference in most all quarterback categories.
Brendan Beaulieu hauled in five receptions for 100 yards and two wide-open touchdowns for Bemidji State. He broke two program records in the process, leading the Beavers to a 48-22 steamrolling over the Peacocks.
As an Alaska native and the state’s Gatorade Player of the Year coming out of high school, you’d think Colton Herman would be in a class all by himself at Chet Anderson Stadium. But curiously enough, the program’s MVP pipeline to the Last Frontier was actually established in 2006.
Minnesota has been all business against three incredibly weak programs: arguably the worst Division I outfit in New Mexico State, a rebuilding FCS team in Western Illinois and possibly the worst Power Five program in Pac-12 member Colorado. Those three teams are a combined 0-10 this season.
Bemidji State cannonballed back into the enticing waters of Lake Bemidji on Saturday, defeating Winona State 34-24 at Chet Anderson Stadium and embarking on its iconic homecoming lake jump for the first time in three years.

BSU’s iconic tradition of jumping in Lake Bemidji after a homecoming win is a necessity this year. After winning 10 such games in a row, the aquatic streak ended in 2021. That sour taste, plus two losses by a combined four points to start this season, pair for a pretty strong dose of motivation.
The enchanting Bemidji State football team pulled a rabbit from a hat in all sorts of ways last year. But so far in 2022, it’s been all hat and no rabbit for the Beavers.
There’s sure to be some animosity brewing after Bemidji State defeated Augustana in last year’s NCAA Tournament, just as there was enmity when Augie spoiled BSU’s homecoming two months prior.
