St. Norbert lost its home opener on Saturday, 27-9 to Benedictine College. The Green Knights fall to 0-2 on the season.

Senior quarterback Jack Becker left Saturday's game with a lower left leg injury suffered in the first quarter. Becker was sacked while scrambling outside of the pocket when he came down awkwardly on his leg. He was helped off the field and remained on the sideline. After the half, Becker was seen on crutches with an ice pack covering his left leg. 

Colin Bursik replaced Becker and threw 11 for 25 with 100 passing yards and a 54 yard touchdown pass to running back Elijah Fort.
