Nolan Saraceni and the Orediggers continued their winning ways, defeating the College of Idaho 29-21 in Tech’s homecoming appearance at Bob Green Field.
Junior running back Saraceni rushed 31 times for 179 yards during the contest, driving the Digger offense.
Senior linebacker Tyler Gavlak lead the Digger defense with nine tackles, while Matthew Neylan and David Meis each contributed seven.
With standout quarterback Quinn McQuery sidelined with an injury, junior Dawson Reardon facilitated the offense in the first half until an injury put him on the bench next to McQueary. Andrew Loudenback filled the QB spot for the remainder of the game.
The one-two punch of Loudenback and senior wide receiver Clay Cavender sealed the deal for the Diggers when Cavender received a Loudenback pass late in the 4th quarter, putting the Diggers up 29-21 against the Yotes.
The Orediggers are on bye next week, but will return to action against Rocky Mountain College in Billings October 10th.
