– Clearfield and Bradford met annually from 1984 to 2006 and met another 5 times in the district championship game.  Last year was the first time the two teams had played since 2006, but Clearfield’s 49-0 win was uncharacteristic in a series that typically featured close games and strong performances from each side.  In fact, two of the five highest rushing outputs by a Bison opponent were recorded by the Owls.  The most rush yards given up by Clearfield are shown below.

NOTES

– Clearfield has won 47 of its past 52 games overall and 40 of its past 41 regular-season games.  The Bison are on a 21-game regular-season winning streak.  Philipsburg-Osceola was the last team to beat Clearfield in the regular season, doing so in Week 6 of the 2011 season by a score of 40-33.

– With a win against the Mounties, Clearfield would wrap up its 8th undefeated season and it’s third in the past four years.  Clearfield has gone undefeated in 1939, 1955, 1994, 1998, 2004, 2010, and 2012.

– A win Friday would also secure the Bison’s 6th MAC championship; Clearfield joined the league in 2004.  Since joining the MAC’s Allegheny Division in 2010, the Bison have won the conference each season.  They also shared the league title as a member of the Nittany Division in 2008 and won the league outright as a member of the Seven Mountains Division in 2004.

– While Clearfield and P-O have played each other 53 times since 1956, the Bison also faced Philipsburg High School and Osceola Mills High School before those two schools merged in 1956.  Clearfield was 9-10 versus Philipsburg from 1937-1955.  The Bison went 9-2-2 against Osceola from 1940-1955.  Overall, Clearfield is 48-35-2 since 1937 against the schools that now comprise Philipsburg-Osceola.

– Chad Kroell’s 7 touchdown passes against P-O in 1994 is tied for the school record for touchdown passes in a game.  Kroell also threw for 7 touchdowns against St. Marys that same year.

– Dave Richards ran for 542 total yards against the Mounties in 2001 and 2002, becoming the only player in Clearfield history to rush for over 200 yards against the same school twice.  Richards also accomplished this feat during the 2002 season against Punxsutawney, rushing for 228 yards against the Chucks in the regular season and 314 in the District 9 championship game.

NOTES

– Tyler Stratton’s 203-yard game is the 36th time in Clearfield history in which a Bison rushed for 200 or more yards.  Christian Lezzer rushed for 202 yards earlier this season against Huntingdon.  Sixteen different Clearfield players have now broken the 200-yard mark since 1937.

– Stratton also became the 12th Bison to surpass 2,000 career rushing yards.  He now has 2,112 career yards and is 131 yards behind Pat Davis for 11th place on the all-time list.  Stratton and Lezzer have combined for 5,526 career rushing yards, more than any other pair of classmates in school history.  Isiah Morgan and Jarrin Campman (2008) are second with 5,099 career yards.  In third place are Ken Wisor and Jim Lewis with 4,604 (1998).

– For the season, the Bison have rushed 425 times for 2,762 yards (an average of 6.5 yards per carry) and 40 touchdowns.  Through eight games, they rank 13th in total rushing attempts, 8th in total rushing yards, and tied for 6th in rushing touchdowns among all teams in school history.

NOTES

– Spencer Herrington became the leader in career field goals made from 1993 to the present (all data is complete dating back to 1993).  With his two made field goals Friday night, Herrington passed Kyle Kline’s record of 5 made field goals.  Kline went 5-for-6 on field goals in 2006, his only year as a Bison.  Herrington is now a perfect 6-for-6 in his career.

– After catching four passes for 75 yards, Christian Lezzer became the first Bison to earn a spot on the career yardage lists for rushing, passing, and receiving.  He ranks 3rd in career rushing yards (3,336), 14th in career passing yards (1,885), and 31st in career receiving yards (529).  He is also the first Clearfield player to lead the team in each of those categories for a season.  Lezzer led Clearfield in passing in 2012, rushing in 2012, and receiving in 2011.

– Lezzer also surpassed the 1,000-yard rushing mark against Tyrone, making this the second year he has reached that milestone after he had 1,444 yards last season.  Five Bison have rushed for 1,000 yards in multiple seasons:

Christian Lezzer: 1,444 in 2012, 1,024 in 2013

Isiah Morgan: 1,595 in 2008, 1,148 in 2006

Josh Harbold: 1,764 in 2004, 1,160 in 2003

Dave Richards: 2,515 in 2002, 1,219 in 2001

Stu Wiggins: 1,204 in 1952, 1,165 in 1951

Tyler Stratton could join this list this year, as well.  He rushed for 1,151 yards in 2012 and currently has 710 yards this season.

NOTES

– Clearfield has won 45 of its past 50 games overall and 38 of its past 39 regular-season games.  The Bison are on a 19-game regular-season winning streak.

– The current regular-season winning streak by the Bison is tied for the longest in school history.  Streaks of at least 12 games are shown below:

19 – 2011 to present.  Began in Week 7 of 2011 season by beating Hamburg, 34-28.

19 – 2009 to 2011.  Began in Week 7 of 2009 season by beating Penns Valley, 42-6.  Broken by Philipsburg-Osceola in Week 6 of the 2011 season, 40-33.

19 – 2003 to 2005.  Began in Week 3 of 2003 season by beating Indian Valley, 37-22.  Broken by Bellefonte in Week 4 of the 2005 season, 40-34 in double overtime.

14 – 1993 to 1995.  Began in Week 8 of 1993 season by beating St. Marys, 12-0.  Broken by Brookville in Week 2 of the 1995 season, 20-0.

– Tyrone came to Clearfield in 2008 riding a 35-game regular-season winning streak of its own, but the Bison upset the Eagles 35-34.  The game story from The Progress can be viewed here.

– While this site focuses on Clearfield football from 1937 to the present, research done by Kris Albright has found scores for the program dating back to 1904.  The stats shown on this site only reflect the post-1937 era, but Clearfield played football for nearly 35 years before this time.  When these years are taken into account, Tyrone is Clearfield’s fifth-oldest opponent that it still plays in terms of year of the first matchup between the teams.

1909 – Philipsburg (later merged with Osceola Mills to become Philipsburg-Osceola)

1913 – Bellefonte

1913 – Lock Haven (later merged with Bald Eagle Nittany and Sugar Valley to become Central Mountain)

1914 – Huntingdon

1925 – Tyrone
