DE PERE, Wis. — The St. Norbert College football team jumped out to a big early lead and went on to a 79-7 Midwest Conference victory over Lawrence University on Saturday at Schneider Stadium.
St. Norbert (5-2, 5-1 MWC) built a 35-0 lead after the first quarter and led 45-0 at the half. Lawrence (1-5), which played this as a nonconference game due to a quirk in this season’s schedule, got its only touchdown in the third quarter.
Austin Williams led St. Norbert with 18 carries for 172 yards and three touchdowns. St. Norbert piled up 366 rushing yards. Quarterback James Tringalli was 7 of 13 passing for 126 yards and a touchdown.
Lawrence, which was limited to 120 total yards, got its only score when Tyler Mazur caught a 54-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter. The touchdown pass was the first in the career of freshman quarterback Akeem Williams.
