After nearly a year of uncertainty, the Bemidji State football program finally found some stability on its sidelines. Brent Bolte was officially announced as BSU’s 16th head football coach Monday. Bolte coached the entirety of the 2016 football season as the Beavers’ interim coach. Former head coach Jeff Tesch was unexpectedly removed from the BSU sidelines two days before the team’s season opener for using a racial slur during practice.
The Bemidji State football team added an exclamation point to its regular season on Saturday afternoon. Junior quarterback Jordan Hein set two BSU scoring records as the Beavers dismantled Minnesota Crookston 76-13 at Chet Anderson Stadium, giving them an 8-3 record—their best finish since 2009. Hein threw for 278 yards and four touchdowns on just 10-for-23 passing, and in the process set BSU's total all-time touchdowns record (with 75) and BSU's all-time passing touchdowns record (with 58).
The Bemidji State football team started off slow on Saturday against the University of Mary, but in the end rebounded nicely from its first loss of the season last week. Despite losing their kicker less than an hour before the game, the Beavers dominated on both sides of the ball and demolished the Marauders 52-3 in Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference action at the MDU Resources Community Bowl in Bismarck, N.D.

The distractions, if they existed at all, didn't seem evident for the Bemidji State football team. Although BSU had found out that head coach Jeff Tesch was being put on a paid "leave of absence" just 48 hours prior to Thursday's home opener, the Beavers were all business against Upper Iowa. BSU's seasoned offensive unit did its job in the first half and the defense took over in the fourth quarter as the Beavers hung on to beat the Peacocks 38-24 in Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference action at Chet Anderson Stadium.

BEMIDJI — Expectations for the Bemidji State football team's 2016 season remain high. Earlier this summer, the Beavers were ranked No. 19 in Division II in the Sporting News College Football Magazine's poll. On Wednesday, the Beavers found out that they will have high expectations in their conference as well as nationally. BSU was picked to finish fifth overall in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference and second in the North Division according to the preseason coaches poll, which was released Wednesday.
