The Bucknell Bison get very little national attention in the Patriot League and while they’ve been playing football for over 125 years, unfortunately there are few outside of Lewisburg that pay close attention to them. Thanks to a handful of unique and mustache-yielding players on their 2014 roster, the team is getting more attention this season.
While their roster headshots might...

Kaspar scorched the nets for a career-high 25 in Bucknell’s win over Penn State.
After three seasons at the summit, one could excuse the Patriot League coaches and SIDs for not knowing exactly how to forecast the 2013-14 edition of the Bucknell basketball squad.
Having graduated three 1,000 point starters from a 28-6 NCAA qualifier, none of four players starting...

One of Bucknell center Mike Muscala's crowning achievements this season took place far from the basketball court.
Never mind that the 6-foot-11 senior is the only player in Division I to average 18 points and 11 rebounds a game, or that he leads the NCAA with 22 double-doubles. Making the dean's list is pretty impressive, too.
For now, the books can wait.

What is so special about a Cinderella story? Is it the general perception that people are obsessed with upsets? What about the notion that smaller schools (and thus, lesser opportunities for scholarships) have the ability to captivate an audience more-so than a larger, boring school? The great thing about the NCAA...
GOOD! GOOD! GOOD! GOOD!
The above clip comes to us from an early season college basketball game between Dartmouth and Bucknell in late November. Under normal circumstances, this wouldn't be of any significant note, but just listen to how the Bucknell announcer describes a routine lay in by former Patriot League player of the year Mike Muscala early in the second half. Listen... then slowly back...
Mike Muscala scored 14 points and Cameron Ayers and Bryson Johnson got 11 each as unbeaten Bucknell coasted past West Alabama 69-52 Sunday.
The Bison (5-0) led by 30 points, 61-31 with 10:06 remaining, before the Tigers, a Division II team that counted the 2K Sports Classic subregional game as an exhibition, scored 21 of the final 29 points.
Ayers and Johnson each scored nine points...
