JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (WIBW) - Washburn cruised past Lincoln 76-12 in Thursday night’s season opener, good for the fourth-highest point total in program history.

Starting quarterback Mitch Schurig finished 16-22 for 269 yards, 2 TDs and 1 INT.

Key target Jace Williams led receivers with 2 touchdowns. James Letcher, Jr. hauled in a team-high five catches for 116 yards and 1 TD.

Sophomore Micah Skebo made the defensive play of the night in the fourth quarter, scoring on a 56-yard interception return.
