GAINSVILLE, FL (Reuters): The North Central South Dakota Polytechnic Institute (Norcentral) Freaking Plovers motored to a 42-7 victory over the University of Florida Gators Saturday night before 88,548 fans at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
Senior quarterback J. P. Richardson was the star of the game completing 9 of 14 passes for 237 yards and 5 TDs. Running back Kyle McDonald ground out 184 yards on 24 carries with 1 touchdown.
McDonald came off the field briefly during the third quarter with an apparent head injury. During his absence two Plover drives were squelched by failed fourth down conversions.
Freaking Plover Head Football Coach and Chancellor (for life), Gomer S. Blake, cut short his post-game press conference. “Sorry boys, I’m heading over to Brett’s house for a kegler. Let’s win!”, he bellowed.
Next week the Plovers take the week off, resuming play at LSU on October 20.
