DU-GU Postgame Notes

Sept. 18, 2004

  • The win was the school-record 92nd in the 12-year career of Duquesne head coach Greg Gattuso (1993-current) ... the previous record for wins by a DU head coach was 91 set by Dan McCann over 19 seasons on the Bluff (1970-83, `88-92)
  • The victory also upped Duquesne's home win streak to 13 games ... DU is now 28-2 at home since the start of the 1999 season
  • The win was the Dukes' sixth against a Patriot League team (and second this year) ... no other I-AA Mid-Major has won as many games vs. the Patriot League as DU
  • Duquesne has outscored its first two of four Patriot League opponents on the schedule by a combined 76-14 score (DU beat Holy Cross 31-7 on Sept. 4)
  • Sophomore tailback James Jacobs (Norristown, Pa./Downingtown) rushed for a career high 186 yards on 25 carries in his first career start ... Jacobs, who split time at the tailback spot with the injured Jeremy McCullough (concussion), scored on a 65-yard run in the third quarter
  • Junior cornerback Michael Ford (Clinton, Md./Oxon Hill) returned an interception 46 yards for a TD ... he also forced two fumbles (recovering one) and broke up three passes on the afternoon

  • Senior receiver Michel Warfield (Oxon Hill, Md./Bishop McNamara) caught six passes for a game-high 103 yards ... it was his second 100-yard game of the season and 8th 100-yard game of his career
