“(White) All Americans” Michigan Tech head coach Josh Buttner said he was the first Tech head coach after the season. “He is the best player of the year at this conference. Every time he touched it, he had two or three men.

He did a good job (with help). Some men find some wide open. He alone holds it. He is a coordinator and he (additionally) focused on all that (defense) and got a way to get 20 points.

“(Bell) The second half was incredible.” Boutner said. “It’s good for defense. He really got up in the second half and did a good job (on guard) with Jamir Simpson, who was hurting us a lot in the first half. ”

Tech have won their last 11 games – the only defeat in the French state – but are careful to focus on the current opposition.

“I think we all want to play with each other and keep moving forward.” Bell later. “It could be my last game whenever we lose. So I’m trying to extend as much as I can and make a strong run in the race.
