(WARRENSBURG, Mo) – Mules set UCM record in 71-22 victory over Missouri Southern on homecoming
The Mules offense overpowered Missouri Sothern’s defense Sunday at Walton Stadium Kennedy Field, putting up 726 offensive yards in the process. Their performance set the UCM record for most offensive yards in a single game.
While a brief glance of the score and offensive production suggests a merciless domination on the part of the Mules, the Mules actually trailed the Lions in the closing minutes of the first quarter 14-10. The Mules, however, scored 55 unanswered points to walk away with a victory in convincing fashion.
Devante Turner was an essential component to this spurt. The redshirt running back led the team with 133 yards rushing. He rushed for two touchdowns and had a touchdown receiving. Brook Bolles completed 15-of-25 passes and threw for 337 yards and a touchdown.
