Rushing for nearly 300 yards in a football game is a remarkable feat. Rushing for nearly 300 yards in one HALF of a football game is almost unheard of.
USD did just that on Saturday in a 51-7 demolition of the Stetson Hatters that ran their Pioneer Football League winning streak to 35 games and put them one win away from a 6th straight conference title.
Led by a 227 yard day (on just 13 carries) from senior Jojo Binda Jr. and three touchdown runs from sophomore Randall Gonzalez (the first TDs of his collegiate career) the Toreros ran for 294 yards in the 2nd half. They finished with 353 yards on the ground and 610 yards of total offense.
They didn't need their offense to be phenomenal but it was anyway. Defensive backs Daniel and David Tolbert ... yes, they're twin brothers ... both picked off a pass and the Toreros held Stetson to 56 yards passing for the game.
Next week the Toreros play their final home game of the year against Morehead St. If USD wins that one they'll secure their 6th straight PFL championship and yet another spot in the FCS playoffs.
