Buschbacher

Quinn Buschbacher gave UW-Platteville an early spark and the Pioneers rolled to a 47-31 victory against host and previously unbeaten UW-Stevens Point in a Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference football game Saturday afternoon.

The senior receiver caught a 15-yard touchdown pass from Tom Kelly and scored on a 3-yard run to give the seventh-ranked Pioneers a 14-0 first-quarter lead. His 35-yard touchdown reception gave Platteville a 28-7 cushion entering halftime.

Buschbacher finished with eight catches for 123 yards and added 50 yards on six rushes.

The Pointers pulled within 28-24 on Ryan Swigart’s 12-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter, but the Pioneers used a 5-yard touchdown reception by Dan Arnold and a 50-yard fumble return touchdown by Patrick Swanson to open a 41-24 lead.

Kelly passed for 293 yards and three touchdowns with two interceptions as the Pioneers accumulated 529 yards of total offense.
