SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - Redshirt sophomore quarterback Jared Buck passed for three touchdowns and ran for one and The Rock defense recorded six quarterback sacks and interceptied three passes as hosting Sippery Rock University blitzed Seton Hill University, 52-6, Thursday night in season-opening college football action at Mihalik-Thompson Stadium.
Buck threw TD passes of 17, 10 and 28 yards and rushed in from a yard out, completed 11 of 14 passes for 127 yards with no interceptions and ran for 36 yards on 10 carries to lead a 309-yard Rock offensive attack.
Senior running back Akeem Satterfield rushed for 112 yards on 13 carries and scored on a 27-yard run and redshirt freshman running back Brett Crenshaw had a two-yard TD run to account for the other Rock offensive scores.
Redshirt junior cornerback Anthony Saunders returned an interception 50 yards for a TD and senior kicking specialist Kurt Brackman added seven extra points and one field goal (26 yards) to conclude the hosts' scoring attack.
In addition to Saunders' INT TD, The Rock defensive effort featured 2.5 quarterback sacks by senior defensive end Jeff Thompson (pictured), 1.5 sacks by redshirt junior nose tackle Tony Papley and INTs by redshirt sophomore cornerback Isaiah Coleman and senior linebacker Aaron Moul.
The Rock are idle for over a week before they hit the road for a Week 2 game at Shippensburg.
Further details on the win over Seton Hill will be added shortly.
