St. Cloud State junior quarterback Phillip Klaphake was named the NSIC offensive player of the week on Monday for his exploits in the Huskies’ 51-49 upset win over then-No. 2 Minnesota-Duluth on Saturday.
Klaphake threw TD passes of 23, 36, 16, 19 and 8 yards and rushed for a sixth in the win. He set a single-game school record for passing yards with 461 and he completed 32 of 46 passes while being picked off once.
His five TD passes equaled a single-game record, making him the fourth SCSU QB to throw for five in a game. He also moved closer to the second spot on the all-time passing yards chart at SCSU with 6,276 career yards. He needs 199 to move into the second spot alone. Tom Nelson is second with 6,474 career passing yards. Keith Heckendorf is first with 9,695 career passing yards.
Klaphake engineered a 10-play, 75-yard game-winning drive that began with 1:16 on the clock. He completed six of eight passes on the drive for 75 yards. He hit running back Michael Walker from eight yards out for the game-winning touchdown as time expired.
He’s thrown for 1,328 yards, 10 touchdowns and two interceptions through the first five games of the season.
Minnesota-Duluth fell to No. 10 in this week’s AFCA Division II Coaches poll. The Huskies received three points in this week’s poll, which is up from zero last week.
MSU-Mankato (5-0) is ranked No. 12 and the University of Sioux Falls (5-0) is No. 23.
NOTE: The SCSU/UMD football game will be replayed beginning at 7 tonight on UTVS, which is Ch. 21 on Charter.
