No. 10 Football Closes Non-Conference Slate With Win
The No. 10 ranked University of Wisconsin-Whitewater football team rolled up 554 yards of total offense and pitched a shutout defensively Saturday in a 73-0 victory over Middle Georgia State in front of 5,242 fans in a non-conference contest at Perkins Stadium.
The Warhawks (3-0 overall) totaled nearly 500 yards more than the Knights, holding Middle Georgia State (0-1) to 55 yards and posting 56 first-half points. The team’s scoring output was its largest since 2006 when it scored 75 against Lakeland and the largest margin of victory since 1900.
Senior quarterback Cole Wilber registered 167 yards passing with two touchdowns, and sophomore running back Alex Peete finished with 12 carries for 93 yards and two touchdowns to lead the offense. Ten different receivers caught passes in the affair.
After a bye week, UW-Whitewater visits No. 23 UW-La Crosse to open Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference play. Kickoff on Saturday, Sept. 29, is set for 4 p.m. in La Crosse.
