The Green Knights (6-2, 6-1 MWC) built a 42-0 lead midway through the second quarter to take control of the game. St. Norbert can clinch a share of the MWC title with wins in its last two games - at Grinnell College next week and home against first-place Lake Forest College on Nov. 10.
Beloit (0-9, 0-8 MWC) fumbled on the second play from scrimmage and Austin Arts collected the ball at the Buccaneers' 15-yard line and scampered in for the touchdown. St. Norbert forced a three-and-out and then took a 14-0 lead on an Austin Williams 7-yard touchdown run.
The Green Knights got another stop and Brad Boockmeier scored on a 3-yard touchdown run at the 5:19 mark of the first period for a 21-0 lead. Boockmeier added another touchdown on the next series on a 14-yard run with 1:57 left in the quarter. St. Norbert led 28-0 at the end of the first quarter.
St. Norbert scored on its first two series of the second quarter to put the game away. James Tringali found Brian Fliess on a 22-yard touchdown pass at the 11:03 mark, and Jacob Dault rushed 10 yards for a touchdown with 6:17 left before halftime.
Beloit scored the second half's only points when Lukeson Versulien scored on a 12-yard touchdown run with 5:16 left in the third quarter.
St. Norbert outgained Beloit 414-244, with 302 yards coming on the ground. Williams rushed 12 times for 136 yards and one touchdown, while Boockmeier added 98 yards on 14 carries with two touchdowns.
